-Lurid Crime Tales-
Haitian national who came to US with Biden 'parole' program indicted for child rape in Massachusetts
[THEPOSTMILLENNIAL] A Haitian national that was on President Joe The Big Guy Biden
...46th president of the U.S. The very model of probity....
’s "parole" program and was charged in a rape case that took place in Massachusetts at a Comfort Inn in Rockland has been indicted for child rape.

Cory Alvarez, 26, who was arrested in March has been indicted this week by a grand jury with charges of child rape of a disabled 15-year-old girl. He traveled to the US with the Biden administration's Cuban, Haitian, Nicaraguan and Venezuela

...a country in Central America that sits on an enormous pool of oil. Formerly the most prospereous country in the region, it became infested with Commies sniffing almost unlimited wealth. It turned out the wealth wasn't unlimited, the economy collapsed under the clownish Hugo Chavez, the murder rate exceeded places like Honduras and El Salvador. A significant proportion of the populace refugeed to Colombia and points south...

n parole processes.

According to a blurb from District Attorney Tim Cruz, "A Plymouth County grand jury returned indictments charging Cory B. Alvarez, 26, with one count each of Aggravated Rape of a Child with 10 Year Age Difference and Rape of a Child by Force."

"In March, Alvarez was found dangerous, and he currently remains held without bail," the release continued. After Alvarez was brought to the hotel-turned immigrant shelter, he was reported to authorities after a call to the police.

Alvarez reportedly brought the 15-year-old girl to his room through an app on a device and then committed the alleged crime.

The indictment blurb added, "Upon arrival, Rockland Police encountered the 15 year-old female victim, who was then transported to South Shore Hospital for treatment. As a result of their investigation, Rockland Police developed probable cause to arrest Alvarez, and he was taken into custody."

The case received national attention with politicians commenting on concerns over the background check process for those who are enrolled in the parole program and then brought into the country.

Massachusetts Gov. Maura Healey said that Alvarez passed two background checks. One was done by the state and the other for immigrants colonists specifically.

Alvarez will be arraigned on the indictment in a superior court at a later date.

-Land of the Free
Weird things: The special ops soldier and the illegal Chechen
[American Thinker] On May 3, two Jordanian nationals who were here illegally attempted to enter a Marine base in Virginia. Both were arrested. We’ve just learned that something else happened on May 3: Two Chechen nationals who were here illegally were caught skulking around the home of a special forces Army officer. The officer killed one. The other was arrested...and released. Ian Fleming wrote in Goldfinger, "Once is happenstance. Twice is coincidence. The third time is enemy action." Call me cynical and paranoid, but I’m going to assume that we’re long past happenstance and that what happened on May 3 may well have been enemy action.

According to the Marine Times:

All the makings of failed prisoner snatch operations.

#2  From S2 Underground:
North Carolina: Local media has become aware of a suspicious shooting incident that took place earlier this month. Originally kept quiet due to the investigation, details were released last night surrounding a shooting death involving a Special Operations soldier in Moore County. On May 3rd, local authorities were dispatched to a residence in Carthage in response to a trespassing complaint. Allegedly, the 911 caller also noted that the individual was taking pictures of their residence. After some time, an altercation occurred resulting in the trespassing individual being shot multiple times after allegedly becoming aggressive. Local authorities have identified the man who was shot and killed as Ramzan Daraev. The shooter’s name has been withheld for the moment, but has been identified as a member of the Special Operations community.

#4  RedState update and snippet.

Also, sources in the community tell RedState that "apparently the Colonel had his own cameras up and this was the 3rd or 4th visit" by Daraev and Adsalan and that there have been "a lot of suspect things in the area, family members [of special forces soldiers] followed, et cetera." Footage from the Colonel's cameras could shed a lot of light on what happened not just on May 3rd but also what happened on those other occasions, and if family members of other area soldiers have been followed recently, it's understandable that the Colonel was on heightened alert.
On Friday, Fox News' Jennifer Griffin reported that Daraev and Adsalan were in the country illegally and that "the phones collected at the scene have been taken to an Army base for analysis." If I had to guess, I'd say that the base they were taken to is Fort Liberty.

#6  ...You know, after some of these reports - and this one in particular - I'm wondering how much data on our people fell into Taliban hands. Not so much from actual records, though there would have been a lot of that, but rather along the lines of the Afghan liaisons and officers (more than a few of whom were turned from the very beginning) spilling everything they knew.

From there, it would be (comparatively) child's play to find these soldiers.

Africa Horn
El Fasher battles claim 123 lives, displacing thousands to rebel-held area
[SUDANTRIBUNE] The corpse count from ongoing festivities in El Fasher, the capital of North Darfur, has climbed to 123, according to humanitarian aid workers. Thousands of residents have fled the city, seeking refuge in areas controlled by the Sudan
...a Moslem country located in the Horn of Africa. It is noted for its affinity for rule by ex- or current generals, its holy men, and for the oppression of the native Afro population by its Arab conquerors. South Sudan, populated mostly by the natives, split off from Sudan proper, which left North and South Darfur to be oppressed by the guys with turbans...
Liberation Movement (SLM) under Abdel Wahid Nur.

Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) confirmed the death of one of its team members in an artillery strike on his home in central El Fasher. MSF teams at the Southern Hospital have documented 123 deaths and over 930 injuries in the past two weeks alone.

"These figures are a stark testament to the intensity of the fighting," MSF said in a statement, urging the warring factions to cease hostilities and prioritize the safety of civilians.

In a separate development, displaced individuals from El Fasher have arrived in Tawila, a town about 60 kilometres west of El Fasher under SLM control. Adam Rejal, spokesperson for the General Coordination of Darfur Displaced and Refugee Camps, reported that these new arrivals fled the festivities between the Sudanese army, allied armed movements, and the Rapid Support Forces.

The violence has also triggered a mass exodus from the Abu Shouk camp in El Fasher, with an estimated 60% of residents fleeing due to the fighting. The camp is grappling with a severe humanitarian crisis, including water shortages, skyrocketing prices, and a lack of essential supplies.

US forces destroy unmanned aerial system launched by Houthis over the Red Sea
[IsraelTimes] The US Central Command (CENTCOM) says that US forces destroyed one unmanned aerial system (UAS) that was launched over the Red Sea from an Iranian-backed Iran's Houthi sock puppets
...a Zaidi Shia insurgent group operating in Yemen. They have also been referred to as the Believing Youth. Hussein Badreddin al-Houthi is said to be the spiritual leader of the group and most of the military leaders are his relatives. The legitimate Yemeni government has accused the them of having ties to the Iranian government. Honest they did. The group has managed to gain control over all of Saada Governorate and parts of Amran, Al Jawf and Hajjah Governorates. Its slogan is God is Great, Death to America™, Death to Israel, a curse on the Jews They like shooting off... ummm... missiles that they would have us believe they make at home in their basements. On the plus side, they did murder Ali Abdullah Saleh, which was the only way the country was ever going to be rid of him...
-controlled area of Yemen
...an area of the Arabian Peninsula sometimes mistaken for a country. It is populated by more antagonistic tribes and factions than you can keep track of...

Kenyan police advance team leaves Haiti as international mission is delayed
[AFRICANEWS] Kenyan police sent to check if they were ready to help stop violence in Haiti are coming back home. They said it's not the right time to go yet. They'll be back on Monday.

A senior Kenyan official who declined to be named as they are not the official spokesperson said the bases are still under construction and crucial resources including vehicles are needed before deployment of the first 200 coppers from Kenya can take place.

The deployment was due to start this week, but President William Ruto said it would be delayed for three weeks.

The base where the police will operate from is about 70% done and there is a need for secure stores for the armory, according to the bigwig, who was in the advance team.

The officials arrived in Haiti on Tuesday, met the Haitian police on Thursday and the transitional presidential council on Friday.

‘No rest till Brown divests’: Anti-Israel protesters interrupt university graduation
[IsraelTimes] College president’s speech briefly disrupted by alumni-led protest calling for it to divest from firms contributing to Israel’s war against Hamas

Anti-Israel protesters briefly disrupted an outdoor commencement address given by Brown University’s president in the United States on Sunday.

Shortly after Christina Paxson began, her speech was interrupted for several minutes by shouting as she told the graduates, "I would really like to give you your degrees." She eventually resumed with some people continuing to shout.

"No rest till Brown divests," the protesters chanted.

A group called Brown Alumni for Paleostine said in a news release Sunday that it had led the disruption at the ceremony, where Paxson and the Brown Corporation were conferring diplomas to the graduating class.

Brown Alumni for Paleostine said the group represents over 2,000 alumni who have pledged to withhold donations to the university until the corporation divests from companies allegedly contributing to or profiting from the conflict in Gazoo
...Hellhole adjunct to Israel and Egypt's Sinai Peninsula, inhabited by Gazooks. The place was acquired in the wake of the 1967 War and then presented to Paleostinian control in 2006 by Ariel Sharon, who had entered his dotage. It is currently ruled with an iron fist by Hamas with about the living conditions you'd expect. It periodically attacks the Hated Zionist Entity whenever Iran needs a ruckus created or the hard boyz get bored, getting thumped by the IDF in return. The ruling turbans then wave the bloody shirt and holler loudly about oppression and disproportionate response...
The answer to that behaviour is to shut down the commencement and send everyone home. And repudiate the deal after the alumni allies of the school group broke it.
Another group, the Rhode Island Coalition for Israel, said it had also organized a protest outside the ceremony. It said it had a plane fly a banner supporting Israel and the US-Israel alliance.

Regular anti-Israel and pro-Paleostinian demonstrations ceased earlier this month at a small number of US universities, including Brown, after school leaders struck deals with protesters, fending off possible disruptions of final exams and graduation ceremonies.

The agreements at schools including Brown, Northwestern and Rutgers stand out amid the chaotic scenes and campus arrests across the country since April 17. Tent encampments and building takeovers have disrupted classes at some schools, including Columbia in New York City and the University of Caliphornia, an impregnable bastion of the Democratic Party,, Los Angeles.

Deals included commitments by universities to review their investments in Israel or hear calls to stop doing business with the longtime US ally. Many protester demands have zeroed in on links to the Israeli military as the war grinds on in Gaza.

Pro-Paleostinian and anti-Israel protesters agreed to dismantle an encampment at Brown. School officials said students could present arguments for divesting Brown’s endowment from companies linked to the war in Gaza.

In addition, Paxson said she will ask an advisory committee to make a recommendation on divestment by September 30, which will be put before the school’s governing corporation for a vote in October.

Two soldiers, including captain, martyred in Peshawar IBO: ISPR
[GEO.TV] Two soldiers, including a captain of the Pakistain Army, embraced martyrdom during an intelligence based operation conducted by the security forces in Beautiful Downtown Peshawar
...capital of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, administrative and economic hub for the Federally Administered Tribal Areas of Pakistan. Peshawar is situated near the eastern end of the Khyber Pass, convenient to the Pak-Afghan border. Peshawar has evolved into one of Pakistain's most ethnically and linguistically diverse cities, which means lots of gunfire...
district’s Hassan Khel area on Sunday, said the military’s media wing in a statement.

A statement issued by the Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that the operation was launched on the "reported presence of terrorists" in the area.

It added, during the operation, the troops "effectively engaged" with the gunnies and killed five of them while injuring three others.

"However,
if you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to be a horrible warning...
during intense exchange of fire, leading his troops from the front, Captain Hussain Jahangir (age: 25 years, resident of Rahim Yar Khan District) along with another brave son of soil, Havildar Shafiq Ullah (age: 36 years, resident of District Karak), having fought gallantly, made the ultimate sacrifice and embraced Shahadat," said the ISPR.

The military’s media wing said that sanitisation operation is being carried out in the area to eliminate any remaining terrorists.

"Security forces of Pakistain are determined to eliminate the menace of terrorism and such sacrifices of our brave soldiers further strengthen our resolve," said the ISPR.

At least 92% of all fatalities and 86% of attacks, including those related to terrorism and security forces operations, were recorded in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan

Israel-Palestine-Jordan
Israeli, Egyptian forces exchange fire, Egyptian soldier killed
[JPost] Israeli and Egyptian forces exchanged fire near Rafah on Monday, with sources in the IDF telling Israeli media that Egyptian soldiers fired at Israeli soldiers who returned fire. An Egyptian soldier was killed in the exchange of fire.

After the incident, IDF officials contacted Egyptian officials to cease the fire. No Israeli soldiers were injured in the incident.

The IDF said that the incident was under investigation and that a dialogue was occurring with the Egyptians


Egyptian security forces have increasingly targeted Israelis in the past year.

Last June, an Egyptian police officer infiltrated Israel and killed three IDF soldiers. Egypt claimed that the incident occurred when the officer chased drug smugglers into Israel. An investigation by Israel found that the police officer infiltrated through an emergency gate in the border fence and walked 150 meters before killing two soldiers, infiltrating deeper into the country, and killing another soldier in an exchange of fire. The two soldiers killed first did not fire their weapons, indicating the Egyptian police officer snuck up on them before killing them.

In October, an Egyptian police officer murdered two Israeli tourists and their Egyptian guide.

'People burned alive' in attack on Rafah; IDF says they targetted two Hamas commanders in Hamas compound
[Al Jazeera] Israeli forces have bombed a tent camp housing displaced people in a designed safe zone in Rafah, killing at least 35 Paleostinians, according to officials. Many of the victims were women and kiddies.

The attack on the Tal as-Sultan area came as Israeli forces also bombed shelters housing displaced Paleostinians in areas including Jabalia, Nuseirat and Gazoo

compound and eliminated two commanders in the terror group’s ranks.

The IDF said it had struck a Hamas compound in the Tel Sultan area of northwestern Rafah where bigwigs in the terror group were gathered, adding in a statement that "the attack was carried out against murderous Moslems who are a target for attack, in accordance with international law, using precision munitions, and based on intelligence indicating the use of the area by Hamas terrorists."

The military said it was aware of reports that the strike and a fire that spread into a camp for displaced Paleostinians had caused casualties among civilians, adding that the incident was under further investigation.

In a later statement, the military said the strike had killed Yassin Rabia, the commander of Hamas’s so-called West Bank headquarters — a Hamas unit charged with advancing attacks against Israel from or in the West Bank — as well as Khaled Najjar, another senior member of the unit.

Rabia, according to the IDF, "managed all of the military arrays of the West Bank headquarters... was involved in the transfer of funds for terror purposes and directed attacks by Hamas operatives" in the West Bank. The IDF also said that Rabia had committed several deadly attacks himself, in 2001 and 2002, killing Israeli soldiers.

Najjar was involved in directing shooting attacks and other terror activities in the West Bank, and was also involved in funneling funds to Hamas operatives, the military said. Najjar also carried out several attacks between 2001 and 2003, according to the IDF, killing civilians and killing and wounding soldiers.

Officials from Hamas and the Paleostinian Authority reacted with fury to the strike, casting it as a deliberate attack on displaced, defenseless civilians.

"In light of the horrific Zionist massacre this evening committed by the criminal occupation army against the tents of the displaced... we call on the masses of our people in the West Bank, Jerusalem, the occupied territories and abroad to rise up and march angrily against the ongoing Zionist massacre against our people in the sector," Hamas said in a statement.

’s administration said it was following the situation.

"We’re aware of the reports about the incident in Rafah and are gathering more information," a spokesperson for the White House National Security Council told The Times of Israel.

The strike came hours after Hamas fired a barrage of eight long-range projectiles at central Israel, in the first such attack in four months. The IDF said later Sunday that it had destroyed the rocket launcher used in the attack.

The military also announced the deaths of two soldiers during fighting in Gaza on Sunday, as it continued major military operations in the northern Strip’s Jabaliya as well as in Rafah. This brought the corpse count of the ground offensive against Hamas and operations along the border to 288. A civilian Defense Ministry contractor has also been killed in the Strip.

Israeli tanks have probed around the edges of Rafah, near the crossing point from Gaza into Egypt, and have entered some of its eastern districts, residents say, but have not yet entered the city in force since the start of operations in the city earlier this month.

Hamas armed wing says it launched 'big missile' attack on Tel Aviv - a barrage of 8, says the IDF
[GEO.TV] Hamas
..not a terrorist organization, even though it kidnaps people, holds hostages, and tries to negotiate by executing them,...
armed wing al-Qassam Brigades said it launched a "big missile" attack on Tel Aviv on Sunday as the Israeli military sounded sirens in the central city warning of possible incoming rockets.

In a statement on its Telegram channel on Sunday, al-Qassam Brigades said the rockets were launched in response to what it called "Zionist massacres against civilians".

Hamas al-Aqsa TV said the rockets were launched from the Gazoo

Strip.

Rocket sirens had not been heard in Tel Aviv for the past four months. The reason for the sirens was not immediately stated by the Israeli military.

Israeli emergency medical services said they had received no reports of casualties.
Hamas is making a virtue of necessity. The Times of Israel adds:
During operations in Rafah, the IDF said it destroyed a rocket launcher used by Hamas to fire a barrage of eight long-range projectiles at central Israel earlier Sunday.

A fighter jet hit the site, which the IDF said was located near two mosques. IDF front man Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari in a presser said the site was some 800 meters from where Israeli troops were operating.

"As the IDF forces approached [the area of the launch], Hamas fired the rockets from within the [civilian] population. We see this pattern in many places where we operate. Hamas fears [losing] these munitions and rockets, and it fires them when it sees IDF troops approaching," Hagari said.

"This is further proof that the Hamas terror organization places its assets near civilian facilities and infrastructure while using the Gazoo population as a human shield," the military added.
"The guerrilla is the fish, the people are the sea," as Chairman Mao said.
The IDF published footage of the strike.

So, HAMAS is back to being a Genocidal Terrorist Group again, murdering civilian women, children and babies.

How will the LSD's, The EU, & MSM play this, to make Hamas look like the victims?

on Saturday, though the Israeli military denied the claim.

The Hamas armed wing front man did not say how many soldiers had been kidnapped and showed no proof of the claim.

"Our fighters lured a Zionist force into an ambush inside a tunnel ... The fighters withdrew after they left all members of the force dead, maimed, and captured," Abu Ubaida, the front man for Al Qassam Brigades, said in a recorded message broadcast by Al Jazeera early on Sunday.

The Israeli military on Sunday denied the claim by Hamas' armed wing.

s and tank shelling.

It described the fighting in Jabaliya as "high intensity."

Several booby-trapped buildings were also neutralized by troops in the area, the IDF said. In a video released by the military, an bomb is seen planted in a store in the market area.

In the latest raid on Hamas’s general security headquarters, the army said the paratroopers discovered documents and Hamas infrastructure at the headquarters. The headquarters had already been raided by the IDF in December, although it was not completely demolished at the time.

During the raid on the PIJ commander’s home, forces located a cache of weapons and "many intelligence documents." Several more caches of weapons were located in the Jabaliya market area, the military added.

The military released footage from the fighting in Jabaliya, some of the captured weapons, the bomb found in the market, and the demolition of the Hamas headquarters.

The IDF pushed into Jabaliya earlier this month for the third time during the war, in an operation focused on killing Hamas cells that regrouped in the city’s historic refugee camp, an area that the military had not reached previously.

The fighting has been described by the IDF and some officers as "intense" and the "most violent mostly peaceful" of the war, with many engagements, both above ground and with Hamas operatives using tunnels. The IDF has also recovered the bodies of seven slain hostages from tunnels in Jabaliya.

Southeast Asia
Some 45,000 Rohingya flee amid allegations of beheading, burning in Myanmar
[Al Jazeera] Escalating violence in conflict-torn Myanmar’s Rakhine State has forced another 45,000 minority Rohingya to flee, the United Nations
...boodling on the grand scale...
warned, amid allegations of beheadings, killings and burnings of property.

Clashes have rocked Rakhine State since the Arakan Army (AA) rebels attacked forces of the ruling military government in November, ending a ceasefire that had largely held since a military coup in 2021. The fighting has caught in the middle the Moslem minority group, long considered outsiders by the majority Buddhist residents, either from the government or the rebel side.

The AA says it is fighting for more autonomy for the ethnic Rakhine population in the state, which is also home to an estimated 600,000 members of the persecuted Rohingya Moslem minority, who have chosen to remain in the country.

More than a million Rohingya have taken shelter in neighbouring Bangladesh after fleeing Rakhine, including hundreds of thousands in 2017 during an earlier crackdown by the military that is now the subject of a United Nations genocide court case.

Syria-Lebanon-Iran
Israeli strikes kill eight people in southern Lebanon
[GEO.TV] At least eight people were killed on Sunday by Israeli strikes in villages across southern Leb
...an Iranian satrapy currently ruled by Hassan Nasrallah situated on the eastern Mediterranean, conveniently adjacent to Israel. Formerly inhabited by hardy Phoenecian traders, its official language is now Arabic, with the usual unpleasant side effects. The Leb civil war, between 1975 and 1990, lasted a little over 145 years and produced 120,000 fatalities. The average length of a ceasefire was measured in seconds. The Lebs maintain a precarious sectarian balance among Shiites, Sunnis, and about a dozen flavors of Christians, plus Armenians, Georgians, and who knows what else? It is the home of the original Hezbollah, which periodically starts a war with the Zionist Entity, gets Beirut pounded to rubble, and then declares victory and has a parade. The Lebs have the curious habit of periodically murdering their heads of state or prime ministers...
, Lebanese security sources said.

They said two people were killed in Aita al-Shaab, three in Houla, two in Yaroun and a driver whose cycle of violence was targeted along a main road in Naqoura.

Hezbollah said on Sunday it mourned four of its fighters from Israeli strikes, and that it responded to the attacks by launching dozens of katyusha rockets towards Israeli army reserve units along Israel's northern border.

Hezbollah announces deaths of six members killed in Israeli strikes over last day

[IsraelTimes] The Hezbollah terror group has announced today the deaths of six members killed "on the road to Jerusalem," its term for operatives slain in Israeli strikes.

The announcements come after several IDF strikes on Hezbollah positions and operatives in southern Leb today and last night.

Their deaths bring the terror group’s toll since the beginning of the war in the Gazoo Strip to 322.

IDF Spokesman Rear Adm. Daniel Hagari in a presser says the military has killed at least seven Hezbollah operatives in strikes today.
