Seven Bridges (Kadals) of #Kashmir

𝐀𝐦𝐢𝐫𝐚𝐧 𝐊𝐚𝐝𝐚𝐥
Built by #Afghan governor 𝐀𝐦𝐢𝐫 𝐊𝐡𝐚𝐧 𝐒𝐡𝐞𝐫 𝐉𝐚𝐰𝐚𝐧 in 1774-1777. Probably that is the reason ‘Amira/amiran/omra/womra Kadal’ is referred to as ‘The heart of #Srinagar ’....
...Dating back from the 1770s, during the #Afghan rule over the #valley through the re-construction in 1982, the bridge adds to the feel of the local life and livelihood.

Built by 𝐇𝐚𝐛𝐢𝐛 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝐡, ruler in 1551. Or believed to be by 𝐘𝐮𝐬𝐮𝐟 𝐒𝐡𝐚𝐡 𝐂𝐡𝐚k (1510-17) and named after Habba Khatoon. A very familiar view from the window of the small lower #houses located across the river during the 1980s was that of.

Govt of #Pakistan needs to place these #Afghan citizens on #Pakistan’s TRAVEL BLACK LIST.

They’re living in Germany paid by RAW/NDS for PTM’s anti Pakistan propaganda.

They visit Pakistan to conspire with PTM leaders & some even have families here.

When PTM propagandists realized the foolishness of exposing their entire Kabul sponsored outfit in Germany, they deleted the “About Us” page.

Today the link shows:

“Oops!
Unfortunately this page could not be found.

As it looks, nothing was found at this point.”

Unfortunately they were a little bit late in taking the page offline, because someone took screenshots from their ‘About Us’ page:

Thread on Naghlu Dam
Tweets by AF (@TheFahimi): 1/8

Khrushchev and Bulganin welcomed by PM Muhammad Daud Khan in #Kabul in Dec 1955. They agreed to extend a $100 million aid by USSR to #Afghanistan which would build #Naghlu dam, Bagram military airfield and Darunta dam.
2/8
Naghlu dam, also #Afghanistan’s largest hydropower plant with a 100 MW generation capacity, is located on Kabul River in Surobi district of #Kabul. Work on the dam started in January 1960 and by 1968 the dam was ready for operation. /AF
3/8
When Surobi area was controlled by Hekmatyar's militia (i.e. during #Soviet-#Afghan war and in the years leading to the #Taliban rule), they used the power plant as a tool to pressure Kabul by cutting the electricity connection.
Later, the Taliban would do the same. /AF

Detailed THREAD on #Russia-#Taliban alleged deal to kill #US military:

*The picture is of 27 November 2001
Author: Emmanuel Dunand/AFP
Title: “A Northern Alliance fighter and a Russian soldier compare their weapons"
1. The @nytimes stories have been making waves in the #US but they have been making waves in #Russia as well, so here’s a bunch of views on this from #Moscow
nytimes.com/2020/06/26/us/…
2. OFFICIAL reaction: #Kremlin predictably castigated stories as “ridiculous” & “elaborate hoax”, added that #US,#Russia military have “their own dialogue system that contains restricted information," & “none of American reps have ever raised this question” [with #Moscow]

NEW: @UN report on #Taliban casts doubt on ability of US-Taliban agreement to succeed

"There are divisions within the group [Taliban], which make compromise with its adversaries difficult, and its messaging remains hard-line" per UN Sanctions Monitoring Team
#Taliban "also appears well prepared for the 2020 fighting season and raising the tempo of its attacks on #Afghan government targets" per the @UN report
New @UN report sees problems due to #Taliban drug trafficking

"The scale of the problem remains huge and has been further complicated by a boom in methamphetamine production and trafficking" per report

With sweat & blood of thousands of #Pakistanis, peace has been restored in our tribal areas along the border with #Afghanistan.

But #Pakistan haters in #Kabul are hellbent on creating ethnic discord & lawlessness in our towns & cities with online spread of ethnic propaganda.

/1
Objective is simple:

To fuel anti state misinformation in #Pakistan using millions of dollars in coordination with #Indian intel.

#NDS agents have laid an elaborate network & Imtiaz Wazir is their key operatives working as a go between of #PTM leadership & Afghan officials.

Other two officials who oversee international promotion of #PTM propaganda are ex Afghan Amb to #US Hamdullah Mohib currently serving as the National Security Adviser to Afghan President
&
His former deputy Majeed Qarar the cultural attaché at Afghan Embassy in Washington DC.

Dear @antonioguterres, Pakistan has never cared about #Afghan #refugees but has earned international support from their sufferings and the aid that gained was used to boost terrorism, these two pictures are clear messages.

#UNInterveneBalochistan
Thread 👇
Pakistan had a lot to weaponize Afghan Taliban but the Afghan refugees in #Balochistan seek food and education from trash, benefiting 0% from the aid provided by the @UN and international community to #Pakistan.

#UNInterveneBalochistan
The presence of terrorist heads in Pakistan such as #OsamaBinLaden & Mulla Mansoor are enough to define Pakistan's role for peace in the region. The roots of terrorism in Afghanistan can be traced back to 1979, after Pakistan supported the Afghan Mujahiden #UNInterveneBalochistan

30 #Afghan News Outlets, incluidng Shamshad, have released a signed statement today protesting “severe limitations in access to information,” saying the government has a “double standard” when it comes to “implementing the access to information law, and supporting free media.”
UNAMA: Open and healthy societies promote access to information for citizens. #Afghanistan #RightToKnow. It's vital for:
➡️accountability & fighting corruption
➡️improving government performance & efficiency
➡️encouraging investment
➡️empowering citizens in public life
British Emb. in Kabul: Access to government information is a right of the Afghan people. #Afghanistan has one of the best laws in the world on #A2I but more needs to be done to ensure implementation. The UK supports the brave & committed journalists fighting to uphold this right.

Why #AshrafGhani undermined #TUTAP's protest and Appreciates #PTM

#TUTAP project was proposed by #ADB (Asian Development Bank) in #Karzai's tenure. As per this project, 500-KV would be supplied to #Afghanistan and #Pakistan considering the power crisis in the region.

In 2016 Second Vice President Mohammad Sarwar Danish spoke out against routing the #TUTAP projects through #Salang rather than #Bamyan. He pointed to a 2013 assessment prepared by #Fichtner, a #German engineering consultancy,

We have been monitoring reports of an #Afghan state owned aircraft crashing in the #Ghazni province. We are going to report it as RUMINT for now. Ariana Afghan Airlines has denied reports that the aircraft has gone down while other news site say otherwise.

#Afghanistan
[Knish]
RUMINT: Some reports coming out of a foreign aircraft (some say US owned) going down near Afghanistan. This is an UNCONFIRMED photo of the site.
Body of 2 foreigners were extracted from the plane. Some are guessing a Bombardier private jet but it looks oddly Russian. I have seen the tail section before and i am trying to remember what aircraft has it.

So tonight is the time to keep the pledge with #Soleimani's grieving family. All uncles his children, from #Baqeri to #Nasrullah and their sidekicks like Shahenshah #Naqvi, will start avenging the killing of the mass-murderer. Last night's cyber-attacks were childish thu. #Syria
Certain #Khomeini|sts today supposed that a land invasion of #Iran was imminent. It was merely to play victime and cash on anti-#America|nism. The fact: #Iran's threatening a new war, not the other way round. Already, the regime's set alight Syria, Yemen and Lebanon besides Iraq
#Soleimani, who died in action (on duty), was the grand field commander of these conflicts. He's directly involved in killing 100s & 1000s #of Arabs besides #US, western, #Pakistan|i, #Afghan citizens. If #Iran avenges, it will bring the war home, its victims have long awaited.

Another incident to prove that #ISI knew the 9/11 was popular "Money Man " story of then #ISI DG #MahmudAhmed.

It's important to understand little history before going to this curious case of #ISI funding the 9/11 attacker .
In 1999 #Musharraf unconstitutionally snatched power #Nawaz convenienced his bullies that #Nawaz may cooperate with US to counter Taliban which is against the interest and policy of Pakistan ( He too did same later ).
The other fact was after #kargil loss #NawazSharif had  terminated the commission of Gen #Musharraf and promoted then DG #ISI Gen #Ziauddin as an army chief.
Soon after Gen #Musharraf took over the office , he took back the decision of promoting Gen #Zia and ordered an enquiry.

Production has doubled since the '09' figures in this piece. It gets the basics right, that #Heroin lit the US opiate epidemic. #BigPharma Rx was kindling. #Fentanyl the accelerant. But it was bulk heroin that was the cause.
globalresearch.ca/a-conspiracy-t…
The true story has been so successfully suppressed, it must be via some degree of quasi-official connivance? By seizing & reporting only on Mexican-border trafficking, they're able to propagate the official lie, that Afghan #heroin doesn't make it to USA! Lol.
CDC figures show the #epidemiology of the #heroin epidemic, began in Midwest, NorthEast, 2007-10 & spread out. #Afghan 'white' powder from the 'Great White North', -not- the desultory flow of Mexican 'brown' from South America.
