kitted with body armor and ballistic helmets, the men can be seen
defending bunkers, storming buildings, and even posing by whiteboards
giving tactical lessons. Though the titles of these YouTube videos are
written in Russian Cyrillic, their background music is an a cappella

Syria's Aleppo takes first tiny steps toward recovery
Angus McDowall ALEPPO, Syria (Reuters) - In the ruins of the Sabbagh
textile factory in Aleppo's Belleramoun Industrial Zone, one wall
smashed open by shellfire, a Belgian-made weaving machine stands idle
while a family carefully strips the office of wood paneling for fuel.
The scene attests to the devastation visited on the economic
infrastructure of Aleppo, Syria's most important industrial hub before
the war, and the challenges facing any long-term plan to revive the
city. The government is gradually restoring some basic infrastructure in
Aleppo: a train service has started operating inside the city, the
airport is scheduled to open soon and bulldozers are clearing streets of
barricades and other debris.

high-ranking, influential Islamic State foreign fighter linked to
numerous attacks and plots in France may have been killed in a coalition
airstrike. “Coalition forces targeted Rachid Kassim, a senior ISIS
operative near Mosul, in a strike in the past 72 hours,” Pentagon
spokesman Major Adrian J.T. Rankine-Galloway said, using an acronym for
the militant group. “We are currently assessing the results of that
strike.” Kassim traveled to Syria with his wife and three children in
2012 and has been tied to at least four plots to attack France since
June 2016. Among them was the murder of a French priest in Normandy,
France, in June 2016 and the attempted attack on the cathedral of Notre
Beyond Yemen, the Ghost of Anwar al-Awlaki Will Long Haunt US Forces
Donald Trump has begun forging his own legacy in the ongoing wars on
terror. On the same weekend that he signed his executive
order temporarily banning travel to the United States from seven
Muslim-majority countries, U.S. Navy SEALs, alongside UAE special
forces, were preparing to raid Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)
targets in Yemen, the first U.S.-led ground action in the country since
2014. While over a dozen al-Qaeda fighters were reportedly killed, so

propagandist, killed by a U.S. drone strike on September, 30, 2011,
while traveling through al-Jawf, Yemen.
