Soleimani blown into chunks…hardest hit, @brhodes

An airstrike killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, head of Iran’s elite Quds Force and architect of its regional security apparatus, at Baghdad’s international airport Friday, Iranian state television and three Iraqi officials said, an attack that’s expected to draw severe Iranian retaliation against Israel and American interests.
The strike also killed Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, deputy commander of Iran-backed militias in Iraq known as the Popular Mobilization Forces, or PMF, the officials said. The PMF media arm said the two were killed in an American airstrike that targeted their vehicle on the road to the airport.
I believe that’s called “sending a message”.
This may be the most significant strike since Osama bin Laden was killed. As Qods Force leader, Soleimani had his hands in every Shia-related insurgency and terror attack in the Middle East and beyond. Muhandis was deputy commander of Iraq's PMF, an official Iraqi govt unit. https://t.co/5slAyLwO40

Islamist groups have recruited dozens of former French soldiers, a troubling new report has revealed less than three months after a terrorist attack by a staff member at police headquarters in Paris shocked the nation.
More than a third of the ex-servicemen are converts to Islam and nearly half served in elite Foreign Legion, parachute, commando or marine units where they acquired expertise in combat and handling weapons and explosives.
The conservative newspaper Le Figaro published excerpts on Wednesday from the forthcoming report by the Centre for the Analysis of Terrorism, a Paris-based think tank.
Very big developments may be afoot in Iraq. The indispensable Abu Ali reports on a series of 9 unusual and worrying events that have taken place in the last 24 hours — which, when the dots are connected, paint a worrisome picture. They are:

Scotland Yard is investigating how 28-year-old Usman Khan was able to launch the attack in London Bridge, despite being known to the authorities and fitted with an electronic tag to monitor his movements. He was allowed out a year ago after serving time for his part in a plot to blow up the London Stock Exchange.

The US will legally designate Mexican drug cartels as terrorist groups, President Donald Trump says.
The move would enable a wider scope of US action. Mr Trump also said he had told Mexico the US was ready to “go in and clear out” the cartels.
In response Mexico’s foreign minister said his country would not allow any “violation of national sovereignty”.
Maybe Mexico should build a wall.

Update: Just spoke to a leader in the Sheitat tribe, who survived the deadliest ISIS’ massacre in Syrian history. 650 Sheitat men were executed for rising up against ISIS. “Relatives of the dead feel a sense of comfort, some of their desire for vengeance has been satisfied.” – @Elizrael
This seems to relate to the raid in northern Idlib, Syria where U.S. led coalition forces were pursuing a high value terrorist target. No confirmation yet, some chatter it could be Baghdadi. https://t.co/I8aCl3oG5W
