(English version here)

1) India ha declarado al hijo del terrorista Lashkar-e-Taiba Hafiz Mohammad Saeed, Hafiz Talha Saeed, como “terrorista designado”. Hafiz Talha ha participado activamente en el reclutamiento, la recaudación de fondos, la planificación y la ejecución de ataques por parte de LeT en India, y a intereses indios en Afganistán. La designación se produce un día después de que el padre de Hafiz Talha y autor intelectual del ataque terrorista en Mumbai, Hafiz Saeed, fuera sentenciado a 33 años de cárcel.

2) El gobierno de India designó como terrorista al ciudadano paquistaní Mohiuddin Aurangzeb Alamgir, quien estuvo involucrado en el ataque terrorista contra un autobús del CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force de India) en Pulwama en Jammu y Cachemira en 2019, con cuarenta miembros del CRPF muertos.

3) India y Estados Unidos pidieron a Pakistán que tome “medidas inmediatas, sostenidas e irreversibles” para garantizar que ningún territorio bajo su control sea utilizado para ataques terroristas, y pidieron que los perpetradores del ataque del 26/11 en Mumbai y el ataque de Pathankot sean arrestados.

4) En el primer trimestre de este año, Pakistán registró 52 ataques terroristas, en comparación con 35 en el mismo período del año pasado. Los ataques se han vuelto más letales. En lo que va de año, 155 personas en Pakistán han muerto en este tipo de ataques, en comparación con las 68 del año pasado. Los más letales han sido reivindicados por el Estado Islámico. Mientras, los ataques del EI parecen haber disminuido en Afganistán.

5) Desde que tomaron el poder en Afganistán hace ocho meses, los talibanes, a pesar de sus propias atrocidades y abusos, han promocionado su éxito en la represión del grupo Estado Islámico, que se han expandido al vecino Pakistán, intensificando los ataques allí. Los analistas dicen que el EI se ha transformado en un grupo terrorista sin fronteras, uno de los más mortíferos en una región, que ha generado muchas organizaciones violentas y radicales.

6) La Embajadora de Australia en la República Islámica de Irán anunció la disposición de su país a cooperar con Irán en la lucha contra el terrorismo. Dijo que Australia e Irán comparten una preocupación común sobre los talibanes.

7) Actualmente, los ataques del Estado Islámico en Irak están en el nivel más bajo, no solo en términos de números, sino también en términos de complejidad y efectividad, según el Instituto Washington.

8) Varios informes confirman que las fuerzas de ocupación de EE. UU. transfirieron a cientos de terroristas del Estado Islámico desde Irak y desde prisiones controladas por la milicia QSD (Fuerzas Democráticas Sirias, SDF) en Hassakeh, a las cercanías de la base de ocupación en el área de al-Tanf, en la frontera sirio-jordana, para entrenarlos y armarlos, para llevar a cabo ataques contra el estado sirio.

9) El presidente Joe Biden rechazó la demanda de Irán para que Estados Unidos elimine el Cuerpo de la Guardia Revolucionaria de Irán de la lista estadounidense de organizaciones terroristas extranjeras. La demanda de Irán es condición para el reingreso de Estados Unidos en el acuerdo nuclear.

10) Egipto lanzó un proyecto denominado “El costo del terrorismo” para realizar investigaciones sobre los impactos económicos y sociales del terrorismo en Egipto y los países islámicos.

TOP NEWS FROM APRIL 9 TO APRIL 15, 2022

GGN JIHADISM:

GGN Jihadism selects, analyzes and synthesizes weekly the most relevant news about jihadist terrorism, presenting them in few pages, in an organized way, without inaccurate, inconsistent and confusing data, so that the reader can, after a quick reading, detect perspectives and trends.

(Spanish version here)

1) India has declared Lashkar-e-Taiba terrorist Hafiz Mohammad Saeed’s son Hafiz Talha Saeed as a “designated terrorist”. Hafiz Talha has been actively involved in recruitment, fund collection, planning and executing attacks by the LeT in India and Indian interests in Afghanistan. The designation comes a day after Hafiz Talha’s father and Mumbai terror attack mastermind Hafiz Saeed was sentenced to 33 years in jail.

2) The government of India designated as terrorist Pakistani national Mohiuddin Aurangzeb Alamgir who was involved in the terror attack on a CRPF (Central Reserve Police Force of India) bus in Pulwama in Jammu and Kashmir in 2019, with forty CRPF personnel killed.

3) India and the US have asked Pakistan to take “immediate, sustained, and irreversible action” to ensure that no territory under its control is used for terrorist attacks and called for the perpetrators of the 26/11 Mumbai attack and Pathankot attack to be brought to justice. This came a day after Shehbaz Sharif replaced Imran Khan as the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

4) By late March this year, Pakistan had seen 52 attacks by militants, compared to 35 in the same period last year. The attacks have also gotten deadlier. So far this year in Pakistan, 155 people have been killed in such attacks, compared to 68 last year. The worst have been claimed by a ruthless Islamic State affiliate. Meanwhile, IS attacks appear to have declined in Afghanistan.

5) Since seizing power from Afghanistan’s elected government eight months ago, the Taliban, despite their own atrocities and abuses, have touted their success in repressing the Islamic State group, but the militants have expanded into neighbouring Pakistan, stepping up attacks there. Analysts say IS has morphed into a borderless terrorist group, one of the deadliest in a region that has spawned many violent, radical organisations.

6) The Australian Ambassador to the Islamic Republic of Iran announced her country’s readiness to cooperate with Iran in the fight against terrorism. He stated that Australia and Iran share a common concern about the Taliban.

7) At the moment, Islamic State attacks in Iraq are at the lowest level — not just in terms of the numbers, but also in terms of the complexity and effectiveness.”, according to Michael Knights, a fellow at the Washington Institute, ISIS has never been weaker in Iraq. The group has still been able to launch isolated fatal attacks, but in many villages like Lheiban, intimidation tactics are more common than mass carnage.

8) Several media reports confirmed that U.S. occupation forces transferred hundreds of ISIS terrorists from Iraq and from prisons controlled by the QSD (Syrian Democratic Forces, SDF, editor’s note) militia in Hassakeh to the vicinity of the occupation base in the al-Tanf area on the Syrian-Jordanian border to train and arm them to carry out attacks against the Syrian state.

9) President Joe Biden is rejecting Iran’s demand that the United States remove the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps from the U.S. list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations. Iran wants the terrorist designation removed for their military branch as a condition of the U.S. reentry into the nuclear deal.

10) Egypt launched a multidimensional scientific research project -dubbed ‘The Cost of Terrorism’- to conduct research on the economic and social impacts of terrorism in Egypt and Islamic countries

2) U.S. military commanders urged the White House to approve the movement of several hundred troops in Somalia to help deter the growth of Al Qaeda’s most successful local export, Al-Shabaab. The terror group’s has acquired an estimated 5,000-10,000 fighters over the last decade.

5) The Minister for National Security of Ghana has stated that Ghana is on high alert against a possible terrorist attack.

6) Sub-Saharan Africa is already on track to surpass its 2021 numbers and potentially account for more than half of global terrorism deaths in the world this year. More concerning, jihadist activity is veering south, which will inevitably shift the threat thought to be contained in the Sahel belt to the Gulf of Guinea coast.

7) Turkey is ready to cooperate and share experience in the field of counterterrorism with Mali and the African continent, according to the Turkish Defense Ministry. Turkey has been seeking to strengthen its presence in Africa. Since 2003, the volume of its trade with the continent has increased from $2 billion to at least $25 billion.

8) The UAE has witnessed a wave of drone and missile attacks from Houthi militants due to its change in strategy regarding the Yemen war. To prevent the group from controlling oil rents, the UAE renewed its involvement in the conflict by backing the Giant’s Brigade, a local Sunni militia, to fight against Houthi advancements.

9) A man with knife attacked the seminary students at Imam Reza shrine in the holy city of Mashhad in northeast Iran, which led to the killing of a seminary student and injuring three seminary students. Taliban condemns the attack and assured has nothing to do with Afghans and Afghanistan.

10) China and Iran have agreed to strengthen “cooperation in counter-terrorism”. “The two countries should remain highly vigilant against the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) and other terrorist and extremist forces taking advantage of the situation in Afghanistan to create chaos”.    

11) The Biden administration is seriously considering to remove the terrorist designation for Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC), despite the hardline paramilitary organization is a driving force for religious terrorism throughout the region and the world.

12) Israel’s defense establishment estimates that some 200 Israeli Arabs identify with the Islamic State, 20 of whom they believe might carry out attacks in Israel in the organization’s name (see also last week’s report, ISIS attacks in Israel)

13) Pakistan is working with the Afghan caretaker government and other neighbors to ensure that terrorist groups are no longer allowed to use the territory of one country against another, according to Pakistani Chief of Army.

14) Taking advantage of the political turmoil in Pakistan, there has been an uptick in activity on terror launch pads in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, with terrorists in large numbers attempting to infiltrate the border into the Indian side, according to Intelligence reports, that also revealed that the presence of foreign terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir has increased in the first three months of 2022.

15) In a new video, the leader of Al Qaeda, Ayman al-Zawahiri, exhorts Indian Muslims to react to the hijab controversy in Karnataka, started when some girl students in a government school in Udupi were stopped from attending class in hijab.

16) The Congress of India lashed out at Al-Qaeda for wading into the hijab controversy in Karnataka and said the banned terrorist organisation has no business to comment about the internal affairs of the country.

Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting tourist locations, transportation hubs, markets, shopping malls, government facilities, hotels, clubs, restaurants, and public areas, the travel advisory said.

Las vuelca en pocas páginas, de forma organizada, sin datos inexactos, incoherentes y confusos, para que el lector pueda, tras una rápida lectura, detectar perspectivas y tendencias.

(English version here)

1) El Estado Islámico se está moviendo para solidificar el apoyo a su nuevo líder, Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi, compartiendo fotos en las redes sociales que muestran a combatientes unidos detrás de su liderazgo.

2) En la región suroccidental de Tillaberi en Níger, cerca de Burkina Faso, un ataque terrorista perpetrado por hombres fuertemente armados que viajaban en motocicletas y en un vehículo mató a 19 personas que viajaban en un autobús, incluidos dos policías.

3) Túnez derribó una célula terrorista de Daesh/ISIS en la provincia de Tataouine, en el sureste del país, que había estado planeado fabricar explosivos para llevar a cabo atentados. Túnez ha sido testigo de una serie de ataques terroristas desde 2011, principalmente contra personal de seguridad y turistas extranjeros.

4) La Oficina Central de Investigaciones Judiciales de Marruecos arrestó a cinco extremistas pro-ISIS en diversas operaciones de seguridad. Los sospechosos tenían como target a sitios militares y de seguridad, así como a la sede del gobierno.

5) En Cachemira, la policía arrestó a seis asociados terroristas vinculados con el grupo terrorista LeT en el distrito de Pulwama del sur de Cachemira. Se reveló que los arrestados estaban involucrados en proporcionar logística, refugio, y administrar y transferir financiamiento a terroristas y motivar a jóvenes a actuar como terroristas.

6) La rama afgana del Estado Islámico ha aumentado recientemente la producción, traducción y difusión de propaganda dirigida a los hablantes de uzbeko, tayiko y kirguís en la región. Este impulso forma parte de una campaña de información para deslegitimar al nuevo gobierno talibán de Kabul.

7) La inteligencia de EE. UU. y otros países estima que IS-Khorasan e ISIS-K casi duplicaron su tamaño a más de 4,000 combatientes durante la toma de control de Afganistán por parte de los talibanes el año pasado. El grupo ahora controla algunas áreas limitadas en el este de Afganistán, después de más seis meses de que Estados Unidos retirara sus últimas tropas del país.

8) Expertos estiman que la creciente influencia de la Dirección de Inteligencia de Pakistán (ISI) sobre los talibanes puede ser perjudicial para la India, tras considerar que la división Haqqani, la facción talibán mejor armada y entrenada, liderada por Sirajuddin Haqqani, líder adjunto de los talibanes, ya ha liderado varios ataques contra activos e individuos indios que residen en Afganistán. Según los expertos, la facción Haqqani usaría su poder para hacer propaganda contra los indios.

9) La salida de las tropas estadounidenses de Afganistán y Somalia ha limitado la capacidad de Estados Unidos para realizar operaciones antiterroristas contra grupos vinculados a al-Qaeda y al Estado Islámico, según los generales estadounidenses a cargo de Medio Oriente y África. Por ahora, parece que Estados Unidos está mayormente en modo de observar y esperar.

10) En África, Estados Unidos está trabajando con sus socios, incluida Sudáfrica, para desmantelar las redes de apoyo financiero de ISIS en el continente. Los miembros y asociados de ISIS en Sudáfrica están facilitando la transferencia de fondos desde la parte superior de la jerarquía de ISIS a sucursales en toda África.

11) Francia y sus socios están sacando recursos militares de Malí, generando dudas sobre la mejor manera de abordar las persistentes amenazas terroristas y la creciente huella rusa en las regiones circundantes.

12) Los militantes del grupo Estado Islámico planeaban matar al presidente francés durante una visita a Beirut en 2020 (Macron voló a Beirut solo unos días después de la explosión masiva del puerto el 4 de agosto). También planeaban matar a políticos libaneses, incluido el ex primer ministro y jefe del Movimiento Futuro, Saad Hariri, así como el jefe del Movimiento Patriótico Libre y el parlamentario Gebran Bassil, que tiene estrechos vínculos con Hezbolá, respaldado por Irán.

13) Arabia Saudita anunció ejecuciones de 81 miembros del Estado Islámico y Al-Qaeda condenados por terrorismo.

14) Hezbolá condenó la ejecución masiva por parte del “régimen terrorista saudita”.

(Spanish version here)

1) The Islamic State group is moving to solidify support for its new leader -Abu al-Hassan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi- sharing photos on social media showing fighters uniting behind his rule.

2) In the southwestern Tillaberi region of Niger, near Burkina Faso, a terrorist attack by heavily armed men traveling on motorcycles and in a vehicle killed 19 people traveling in a bus, including two police officers.

3) Tunisia had taken down a Daesh/ISIS terrorist cell in the country’s southeastern province of Tataouine, who had planned to manufacture explosives to be used in carrying out attacks. Tunisia has witnessed a spate of terror attacks since 2011, mainly targeting security personnel and foreign tourists.

4) Morocco’s Central Bureau of Judicial Investigations arrested five pro-ISIS extremists in separate simultaneous security operations in several cities and towns. The suspects were targeting security and military sites, as well as government headquarters and planning to murder government members, according to a statement.

5) In Kashmir, Police have busted a terror module by arresting six terrorist associates linked with proscribed terror outfit LeT in South Kashmir’s Pulwama district. It was revealed that these arrested terrorist associates were involved in providing logistics, shelter, managing and transferring terror finance and motivating youth to act as hybrid terrorists.

6) Islamic State Khurasan Province, the Islamic State’s Afghanistan branch, has recently ramped up the production, translation, and dissemination of propaganda directed at Uzbek, Tajik, and Kyrgyz speakers in the region. This push comes as part of an information campaign to delegitimize Kabul’s new Taliban government.

7) Intelligence from the U.S. and other countries estimate that IS-Khorasan and ISIS-K, nearly doubled in size to more than 4,000 fighters during the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan last year.  The group prioritized retaking territory and now controls some limited areas in eastern Afghanistan, more than six months after the U.S. pulled its last troops from Afghanistan.

8) Experts estimate the growing influence of Pakistan’s Inter-Service-Intelligence Directorate (ISI) on the Taliban can be harmful to India, considering the Haqqani faction, the best armed and trained Taliban faction, led by Sirajuddin Haqqani, deputy leader of the Taliban, has already lead several attacks on Indian assets and Indians residing in Afghanistan. According experts, the Haqqani faction may use their power and assert anti-Indian propaganda.

9) U.S. troops’ exit from Afghanistan and Somalia has limited the United States’ ability to conduct counterterrorism operations against groups linked to al-Qaeda and the Islamic State, according to the American generals in charge of the Middle East and Africa. For now, it appears that the United States is largely in a mode of watching and waiting.

10) In Africa, the United States is working with its partners, including South Africa, to dismantle ISIS financial support networks on the continent. ISIS members and associates in South Africa are playing a role in facilitating the transfer of funds from the top of the ISIS hierarchy to branches across Africa.

11) France and its partners are pulling military resources out of Mali, raising questions about how best to address persistent terrorist threats and growing Russian footprints in the surrounding regions.

12) Islamic State group militants were plotting to kill the French president during a visit to Beirut in 2020 (Macron flew to Beirut only days after the massive port explosion on 4 August). The IS militants were planning on also killing Lebanese politicians, including former Prime Minister and head of the Future Movement, Saad Hariri, as well as head of the Free Patriotic Movement and MP Gebran Bassil, which has close ties with Iran-backed Hezbollah.

13) Saudi Arabia announces executions of 81 Islamic State, Al-Qaeda Members convicted of terrorism and capital crimes, targeting residents in the Kingdom and traveling to regional conflict zones to join terrorist organizations

14) Hezbollah condemns mass execution by ‘Terrorist Saudi Regime’, lashing out at Riyadh’s “awful sectarian discrimination.”
