A teenage girl was killed and her father and brother were seriously injured in a terrorist bombing at a natural spring outside the central West Bank settlement of Dolev on Friday morning, Israeli officials said.
 
The father and son, 19, were taken by military helicopter to a Jerusalem hospital in serious condition, the Magen David Adom ambulance service said. The daughter, 17, was critically wounded in the attack and received treatment at the scene from civilian and military medics before being pronounced dead of her injuries.
 
Israel Defense Forces Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said the army considered the blast to be a “serious terror attack.”

The army said an improvised explosive device was used in the attack, but it was not immediately clear if the bomb was thrown at the family or if it had been planted earlier and was triggered when the family approached it.
 
Security services were reportedly tracking a car that fled the scene shortly after the explosion. “IDF soldiers are searching the area,” the military said in a statement.
 
Manelis said the IDF did not yet know the identities of the culprits or if they belonged to an established terror group or were acting alone.
 
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who also serves as defense minister, said he was receiving constant updates on the search effort and would meet soon with the commanders of the country’s security forces.
 
The troops were working to find the terrorists behind the attack as quickly as possible, under the general understanding that the more time they have to flee, the more difficult the search effort becomes.
 
The explosion occurred at the Bubin spring — a popular hiking spot — approximately 10 kilometers east of the city of Modiin.
 
“Our surroundings are full of natural springs and hiking to them is an inseparable part of residents’ lives,” Yael, a resident of Dolev, told Channel 12 news. “There is a difficult feeling.”
 
She said a bomb attack was “a severe escalation” the likes of which the community had not encountered “in over 20 years.”
 
Palestinian media reported that the IDF had begun setting up roadblocks and conducting searches in the western Ramallah area, southeast of Dolev.

“This [search] mission is being led on several fronts — the first is the intelligence front with other intelligence services, the second front is the manhunt in the field with roadblocks… The third front is the regular security effort to prevent similar events,” IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis said.
 
Another IDF spokesperson said the military was working with the Shin Bet security service and Israel Police to track the culprits.
 
She said additional troops were also being sent into the West Bank both to find the terrorists and to boost security to settlements in the area.
 
Large numbers of emergency response personnel were called to the area, including the IDF helicopter that evacuated the victims.

Taliban suicide bombers kill one U.S. soldier, multiple civilians in Afghanistan
September 7, 2019 by Jerry McCormick
As the long-running peace talks between the Taliban and the U.S. seemed to be on the verge of a breakthrough, Taliban terror attacks took more lives.

At least one American soldier, one Romanian soldier, and a number of civilians were killed in three separate suicide bombings in Afghanistan on Thursday, Newsweek reported.

A strong response from the White House was not long in coming. After hearing the news, President Donald Trump said he has suspended peace talks and canceled a scheduled secret meeting at Camp David with Taliban and Afghan leaders.

“If they cannot agree to a ceasefire during these very important peace talks, and would even kill 12 innocent people, then they probably don’t have the power to negotiate a meaningful agreement anyway,” Trump said in a series of tweets late Saturday.

Taliban claims responsibility
The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, basically spitting in the face of the peace delegation working on the agreement.

In an all-out war, casualties will happen during peace negotiations. However, carrying out suicide bomber attacks and putting civilians at risk while trying to negotiate peace is completely unnecessary.

That is exactly what the Taliban is doing, though.

In Thursday’s attacks, in addition to the casualties, at least nine U.S. troops and several civilians were injured.

Difficult negotiations
In previous instances, U.S. officials have insisted that violence would not get in the way of a peace agreement being put in place. In fact, U.S. officials said on Monday the two sides have an “agreement in principle” that has not yet been finalized.

One key aspect of the deal has been a definitive schedule of U.S. troop withdrawal — the Taliban insists that it will not even begin to negotiate until that schedule is in place. Despite this, U.S. officials have said in the past that Afghanistan will not be left alone to fend for itself.

ISIS FANATIC, 25, PLANNING ‘LONE WOLF’ TERROR STRIKE ON UK MILITARY BASE RESEARCHED HOW TO USE A DRONE TO DROP BOMBS ON BRITISH TROOPS, COURT HEARS
Hisham Muhammad allegedly looked at how to adapt drones to carry weapons
Police found knives, bear claws, axes, combat clothing at his home near Bury
His cousin Faisal Ahmad, 24, is alleged at Old Bailey to have known of terror plot
Ahmad denies charge while Muhammad, 25, denies preparing acts of terrorism
By Mark Duell for MailOnline, 10 September 2019:

A 25-year-old Islamic State supporter planning a ‘lone wolf’ attack on a military site researched how to weaponise a drone to kill British soldiers, a court heard today.

Hisham Muhammad, of Whitefield, Greater Manchester, allegedly researched how to develop designs and buy products to adapt drones to carry and drop weapons.

He had visited a nearby Army barracks when police found knives, bear claws, axes, combat clothing and camouflage make-up at his home, the Old Bailey heard.


Hisham Mohammad (left) and Faisal Ahmad (right) are both on trial at the Old Bailey in London. They are pictured together in a court sketch today

Today, Muhammad and his cousin Faisal Ahmad, 24, who is said to have known of his terror plot, appeared in the dock after being arrested at their house in June last year.

Opening the prosecution case at the court in London, Anne Whyte QC said: ‘Hisham Muhammad is charged with preparing acts of terrorism.

‘IN SUMMARY, IT IS ALLEGED THAT HE HELD EXTREMIST VIEWS WHICH WERE ALIGNED TO THE SORT OF RADICAL VERSION OF ISLAM ADVOCATED BY TERRORIST ORGANISATIONS SUCH AS ISLAMIC STATE, THAT HE HAD ACCEPTED THE PROPAGANDA EXPORTED BY THE TYPE OF ORGANISATION AND HAD DECIDED TO COMMIT WHAT WE CALL A LONE WOLF ATTACK HERE IN THE UK.
‘He had researched and downloaded extremist material from the internet. This material glorified violence and martyrdom in the name of an extreme and ultra conservative view of the Islamic faith.

‘He had researched how small drones might be adapted to drop some sort of device from them designed to harm others. He had also obtained a variety of weapons and researched how to use knives to lethal effect.

‘He had purchased blade sharpening implements and had used them. He had also researched military locations and police equipment.

‘As you will hear, on May 23 last year, his research included expressing false interest in joining the British Army and in visiting Castle Armoury Barracks in Bury.

‘By the time of his arrest, he was planning we say some sort of physical attack using knives and other weapons, possibly involving the armed forces or the police. We will never know if he had got as far as identifying a particular target or type of individual.’

The research allegedly included visiting Castle Armoury Barracks in Bury, Greater Manchester

On Ahmad, she said: ‘It is alleged that he knew that his cousin had formed radical views and was planning a terrorist act of violence but failed, without reasonable excuse, to draw this to the attention of the police.’

The cousins, who are also brothers-in-law, both grew up in Bermuda and have wives who lived in Senegal throughout the alleged crimes.

Muhammad had lived in Gambia where Ahmad joined him after living in America, and both moved to the UK in 2013 without their wives, the trial heard.

Muhammad was arrested along with Ahmad after his landlord allegedly found Muhammad’s weapon stash at their three-bedroom terrace house share last June.

Anne Whyte QC, prosecuting, said the pair’s landlord Onkar Singh called police on June 4 last year after finding alleged terrorist material at his home he first rented to Ahmad’s mother.

Mr Singh, his friend Gavin Weston and nephew Daniel Singh called police after finding a huge stash of weapons and what appeared to be home-made bombs, jurors heard.

The Bomb Squad and police were called and Ms Whyte said two balaclavas, camouflage clothing, knife sharpening blocks, army recruitment documents, a tomahawk axe, machete, two axes on the floor, cardboard training knives and wooden sword were seized.

There were also two grip claws behind a heater, a toy AK47 assault rifle and a pizza box which had been used for stabbing practice, it was heard.

Muhammad denies one count of preparing acts of terrorism and is on trial at the Old Bailey

The QC said: ‘The diagrams and notes in the exercise book indicated that basic research and development was being undertaken aimed at releasing one or more expendable store from a commercially available model aircraft.

‘The approach taken by Hisham Muhammad in creating these images, notes and objects was variable and could be used to deliver a range of payloads.’

She added: ‘Due to the unusual and unidentified nature of some equipment in the house, the police took the precaution of ensuring the attendance of a defence explosive ordnance disposal operator, somebody called Sergeant David Podmore.

‘For example, in the front small bedroom there was the plastic bucket seen previously by Mr Singh containing two Tupperware boxes and a switch.

‘Mr Podmore also examined a variety of test tubes which contained miscellaneous items and substances including powders which tested as probably flour.’

Jurors heard he found a notebook of sketches of improvised explosive devices in the room.

Ms Whyte QC said: ‘On a shelf in the same room, they found more lollipop sticks attached together with a battery and electrical component.

‘Mr Podmore examined them and X-rayed them. Some of the component seemed to correspond to sketches found in a notebook in the property.

‘The sketches included details and notes for building or modifying a drone to drop a potential improvised explosive device or IED.

‘The first, though simple enough to look at, corresponded to sketches in the exercise book of a point impact initiation system – i.e. of a released device that is designed upon impact to ingite.

‘The other items with the various lollipop sticks attached together consisted of various lengths of lollipop sticks, with a home made hinge and an electrical servo switch which Sergeant Podmore assessed as being a possible improvised underling release mechanism for a drone.

‘When all the evidence is taken together, research into and development of adapting a drone to enable it to drop some sort of harmful device.

‘Whilst this research and development was by no means complete, you will be able to see it w

ISIS SUPPORTERS CALL FOR POISONING OF FOOD IN GROCERY STORES ACROSS U.S. AND EUROPE
BY JACK MOORE ON 9/7/17 AT 5:12 AM EDT
Grocery Store
Customers shop at an Aldi grocery store on June 12, 2017 in Chicago, Illinois.
 
The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) and its followers have traditionally used shock and awe tactics in their attacks on the West, taking knives, assault rifles and trucks on as weapons in shocking assaults. But the group's followers are now calling for a hidden weapon: poison. The target? Western grocery stores.
 
"In the third part of an English-language series promoting lone-wolf jihad in Western countries, potential attackers are advised to inject food for sale in markets with cyanide poison," U.S.-based jihadi monitoring group SITE Intelligence reported.
 
A graphic posted by the ISIS supporters in the Furat Wilayah channel on the encrypted messaging app Telegram, a platform popular with jihadists because of its secrecy and lack of takedowns compared to other platforms such as Twitter, read: "First method: poison."
 
The potential use of poison is one that has been publicized by the group's supporters for several years, but never used. Jihadists published a guide that directed "six ways to kill the Jews" in October 2015, the methods given were to "stab him, burn him, poison him." They have also distributed a guide on how to poison food eaten by "crusaders." Pro-ISIS groups have also published handbooks on how to make homemade poison.
 
Even though it has yet to be used, one U.S. case points to a jihadist attempting to follow the orders of the group and its followers. Police charged Amer Sinan Alhaggagi, a 22-year-old man from San Francisco, who spent time in Yemen. He is alleged to have tried to support ISIS, but also to "redefine terror" in the Bay Area.
 
In his December 2016 court hearing, details emerged that he had discussed lacing drugs with rat poison and distributing them in nightclubs across the Bay Area. He had sought information from an undercover agent about mixing highly-toxic pesticide strychnine and cocaine, according to ABC.

It was also reported in July that a Lebanese suspect detained over a plot to bring down an airliner from Australia to the United Arab Emirates, directed by ISIS, had planned to release a poison gas to incapacitate the passengers and crew of the aircraft.
 
The suspect abandoned the plot before boarding the plane because his bag weighed several kilograms more than the weight limit for hand luggage to board the flight. The alleged poison gas plot represented a new threat to aviation security.
 
The jihadist group has killed dozens of Westerners in attacks across the U.S. and Europe, the deadliest being the Paris attacks in November 2015, that left 130 people dead, the truck attack in the southern French city of Nice, that killed 86 people, and the shooting attack at a LGBT nightclub in Orlando that killed 49 people.
But in Iraq, the group has gone further, testing poisons on prisoners in experiments likened to those carried out during the Nazi era. Iraqi special forces reportedly discovered papers at Mosul University that documented the group's use of "human guinea pigs" to test chemical agents. British and U.S. forces verified the documents, according to The Times.

Arrests in Denmark over suspected Islamist terror plot
There has not been an attack in Denmark since 2015, when a lone gunman killed two people in Copenhagen.

Why you can trust Sky News 
Police in Denmark say they have arrested more than a dozen people during raids over a suspected Islamist terror plot.
 
Investigators are said to have carried out "comprehensive and coordinated" action at several addresses across the country to foil preparations for what they believe were "terrorist attacks with a militant, Islamist motive".
 
Several raids were carried out on Wednesday and "some 20 people" were arrested, police said.
 
Copenhagen Police Chief Inspector Joergen Bergen Skov said a number of the suspects would be charged under the country's terror laws.
 
"Some have procured things to make explosives and have tried to acquire weapons," he added.
There has not been a terror-related attack in Denmark since 2015, when a lone gunman shot and killed a man outside a culture centre that was hosting a debate on freedom of speech.
The attacker later killed a man outside a Jewish synagogue in the centre of Copenhagen, before being gunned down by armed police during a shootout in the capital.

Terrorists should 'not necessarily' serve full jail term, says Jeremy Corbyn
The father of terror victim Jack Merritt does not wish his son's death to be "used as a pretext for more draconian sentences".

JEREMY CORBYNLONDON BRIDGE ATTACK 2019
Jeremy Corbyn is calling for a review of the prison system
 
Release of terrorists 'depends on the circumstances'
 
Why you can trust Sky News 
Jeremy Corbyn has told Sky News that convicted terrorists should "not necessarily" automatically serve their full prison sentences.
 
The Labour leader's comment comes in the wake of Friday's London Bridge terror attack, which left two people dead.
 
The attacker, 28-year-old Usman Khan, was a convicted terrorist who was wearing an electronic tag after being released halfway through a 16-year prison sentence for plotting to bomb the London Stock Exchange.
 
Undated handout photo issued by West Midlands Police of Usman Khan, 20, one of nine members of an al Qaida-inspired terror group that plotted to bomb the London Stock Exchange and build a terrorist training camp, who has been jailed for a minimum term of eight years. He has been named as the perpetrator of an attack on London Bridge on Friday. PRESS ASSOCIATION Photo. Picture date: Saturday November 30, 2019. See PA story POLICE LondonBridge.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has said violent offenders "must serve every day of their sentence, with no exceptions".
 
Speaking to Sky's Sophy Ridge, Mr Corbyn said there were lessons to be learned from the incident and there should be a "full investigation" into the circumstances around the attacker's prison sentence and subsequent release.
 
Pressed on whether convicted terrorists should serve their full prison sentences automatically, he said: "No, not necessarily".
 
The Labour leader continued: "I think it depends on the circumstances and it depends on the sentence but crucially depends on what they've done in prison.

Mr Corbyn said police "had no choice" but to shoot Khan dead as they were "stuck with a situation where there was a credible threat of a bomb belt around his body".
 
Speaking later at an event in York, he said people cannot be kept safe "on the cheap".
 
London Bridge attack: Boris Johnson says terrorists must serve 'every day of sentences'
Mr Corbyn added: "We have to understand that no government can prevent every attack. No-one would believe any political leader who said they could. But the government can act to make such acts of terror less, rather than more, likely."
 
His remarks follow the prime minister's assertion that automatic early release must end and other laws must change to strengthen security.
 
Mr Johnson claimed that because the "broken hung parliament was preoccupied with blocking Brexit", his government was unable to make the changes required to keep violent offenders and terrorists in jail for longer.
 
He said: "This system has got to end - I repeat, this has got to end, as I've been saying for four months."
 
"If you are convicted of a serious terrorist offence, there should be a mandatory minimum sentence of 14
