The Afghan Taliban announced the commencement of its 2017 springtime military offensive, “Operation Mansouri,” and indicated that it will primarily focus on foreign forces in Afghanistan.


The Islamic State (IS) revealed in the 78th issue of its al-Naba weekly newspaper that its “anti-aircraft detachment” in Mosul possesses Strela rockets, which it recently used to shoot down an M28 helicopter of the Iraqi army.


After calling on the Islamic State’s (IS) Sinai Province and the Bedouin Tarabin tribe to resolve their conflict, and following Sinai Province recently carrying out a suicide bombing on a Tarabin position, the group “Rabitah Ahl al-Sunnah wal Jama’a” reiterated its demand for the fighting to end.
