NEW: @DoD_IG report on US-#Afghanistan raises questions about Washington's "over-the-horizon" #counterterrorism strategy

Need for US planes/drones to fly long distances, loss of human intelligence "has significantly reduced the DoD’s
capacity to track terrorist targets"
"As of the end of the quarter [March 31], the DoD had not conducted any strikes on terrorist targets in #Afghanistan since its withdrawal last year" per @DoD_IG acting IG Sean O'Donnell

re: #ISIS #alQaida
#ISIS-#Khorasan estimated to have 2,000 members operating in #Afghanistan, per @DoD_IG citing @DefenseIntel

That's about half of estimates shared by the @UN in February

Non pubblico le foto, perché sono veramente troppo cruente. Ma un giorno la nostra coscienza dovrà rispondere di quanto sta accadendo ormai da mesi in #Afghanistan.
Oggi i #Talebani hanno torturato e ucciso dei bambini. Ripeto: torturato e ucciso dei bambini.
La loro colpa?
Appartenere al #Panjshir, la provincia da cui origina l'ultima sacca di resistenza ai Taliban, quella facente capo ad #AhmadMassoud, di cui avevo parlato pochi giorni fa.
Qui qualcuno parlava di regime "distensivo". Altri (o gli stessi) suggerivano di riconoscere l'autorità dei Talebani sull'#Afghanistan perché lo impone la "realpolitik".
Io i volti di quei bambini ve li risparmio. Ma in cambio, la prossima volta che con leggerezza vi verrà

Il mullah Omar era solito ripetere all'indirizzo degli occidentali: "Voi avete gli orologi, noi abbiamo il tempo".
Il decreto firmato dal leader dei #Talebani, che obbliga le donne dell'#Afghanistan ad indossare il #Burqa in pubblico, lo smentisce. I #talebani non hanno solo
il tempo, ma pure gli orologi: con le loro lancette hanno riportato l'#Afghanistan indietro di 20 anni.
E dire che qualcuno, in Italia (#Conte), parlava di un regime "distensivo". Sbagliava: i Talebani non sono cambiati.
Curioso poi risentire come Conte parlasse della Russia
e di arroganza dell'Occidente. Non è cambiato niente.
La scorsa estate parlai col prof. @Margelletti. Mi disse: "Le conquiste che le donne hanno avuto verranno completamente azzerate e devastate".…
Aveva ragione.

By all accounts, the NRF have launched a major offensive against the #Taliban across #Panjshir today -- taking multiple districts.

No doubt the #Taliban can respond in force, but it's yet another sign (beyond #ISKP) that #Afghanistan's new rulers are far from unchallenged.
NEW - x7 rockets fired into #Tajikistan from #Afghanistan.

In one month, #Pakistan, #Uzbekistan & #Tajikistan have all been hit by cross-border attacks, and #Iran affected by border clashes.

Tajik incident comes amid NRF (long associated with #Dushanbe) offensive in #Panjshir.
#ISKP have claimed today’s cross-border rocket attack on #Tajikistan.

This comes weeks after a similar volley was fired into #Uzbekistan & amid #TTP cross-border attacks into #Pakistan & clashes along the #Iran border.

#Taliban coming under mounting pressure.

According to the state-run @BakhtarNA, the #Taliban's Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice will tomorrow (Saturday, May 7), make an important #decree, about #Hijab ruling, public.
While not released from the official addresses of the IEA yet, the #Taliban's new plan for the implementation of Sharia #Hijab in Afghanistan is a document prepared in two pages and signed by the seven senior officials of the Taliban, including the Minister for the Propagation...
...of Virtue&Prevention of Vice, Chief Justice, Minister of Hajj, Education Minister...
The key contents of the #guideline:
- #Hijab is compulsory on all Muslim women who have reached the age of puberty.
- Any clothing that covers body is Hijab but it should not be transparent...

I have high hopes for these kids! #UK is the greatest nation on earth. It is a tolerant and respectful society. The English cousins respect you and value you regardless of your background. Soon these kids will be exposed to the wider society through the education system.
He will soon be able to escape the clutches of the ignorance and intolerance that his parents have raised him up in! As he grows up, he will understand that it's OK to respect #Women. It's OK to respect your neighbors regardless of his creed, colour or religion.
It's OK to be tolerant of others. Those who look different to you. Those who have a different #religion to you. Those who speak a different language to you. Those who have different traditions and cultures to you. Those who may not agree with you.

1. #IS deployed 342 attacks globally during Ramadan, 219 of them since 17 April as part of its global revenge campaign.

This is ten attacks more than it reported during Ramadan last year.

Here’s what that surge looks like when charted out.
2. Most attacks (by far) were reported from #Iraq, followed by #Nigeria, #Syria and #Afghanistan.

These four states accounted for three quarters of all #IS’s attacks in Ramadan.
3. Besides the sole attack reported from #Uzbekistan at the beginning of the month, no major new fronts were opened anywhere outside of #Nigeria.

#PressFreedom in #Afghanistan has vanished since the #Taliban takeover.
But #Afghan women journalists stand up: I met with them at Radio Begum, which

▶️ airs lessons for school girls
and at @TOLOnews.

This was surely the most important interview in this regard that I gave in the last 12 months. A joined attempt to figure out how much I can say on air, showing solidarity with Free Media and Women in #Afghanistan.

Thank you Farida and @TOLOnews for making this possible.

A thread 🧵

It is felt in #Iran that Taliban in neighboring Afghanistan have outwitted the Iranian authorities/policy-makers as tensions with the group is rising. After a border incident in late April, now Iranians want to conduct a census of Afghan population in Iran. 1
Remarks by a member of Majlis National Security & Foreign Affairs Cmte: Fada Hussein Maleki are important too.
He predicts #Taliban’s political life is reaching its end. He states: #Iran isn’t silent or ignorant about what Taliban or Takfiri groups do on its eastern borders. 2
According to lawmaker Maleki, Iranian authorities are really worried. He adds: #Iran’s appeasement is not bcz of #Taliban but out of respect for people of #Afghanistan. He blames the Taliban for incidents happening on borders either by Takfiris or by the Taliban forces. 3

Klaus Loibnegger von @krone_at bekommt den ultimativen #FakeNews Preis in Sachen #Asyl:

1. Instanz:
Syrien: 3.083 positive Entscheidungen, davon 2.499 Asyl.
Negativ: insgesamt 211

Klaus so 👇. Seid nicht wie Klaus. Image
#Afghanistan und #Syrien sind die Länder mit DEN Top- Anerkennungsquoten. Schutzbedarf steht außer Frage. Es gibt auch keine Abschiebungen in diese Länder.

Bitte, liebe Medienschaffende, gebt Euch Ruck und übernehmt nicht irgendeinen Spin. Meldet Euch, zumindest zur Einordnung.
Es gibt viele Probleme, es gibt viel zu kritisieren.

Aber es wird zumeist das Falsche kritisiert und daher dann die falschen Schlüsse gezogen. Wenn dann auf Basis der falschen Schlüsse eine verhunzte Politik gerechtfertigt wird ist das wenig überraschend.
