BOKO HARAM LEADER CAN’T READ QUR’AN, NOR PERFORM ISLAMIC PRAYERS

Boko Haram leader cant read Quran, nor perform Islamic prayers

A man the Nigerian army has described as a leading member of the Boko Haram terrorist group could neither read the Quran, the Muslim holy book, nor explain how Muslim prayers were performed, according to video footage of his interrogation seen by Anadolu Agency.

Bulama Modu is said to be a Boko Haram commander from the Bulakuri area of Nigeria’s restive northeastern region, where, according to army spokesmen, dozens of militants were recently captured by the army, according to army spokesman Sani Usman.

“I don’t know how to read the Quran,” the captured militant chief admits in the footage in response to interrogators’ questions about his understanding of Islamic jurisprudence.

He adds: “And I don’t know how to perform [Muslim] prayers either.”

While Boko Haram says it wants to establish an Islamic state in Nigeria’s mainly Muslim north, the group is despised by most Nigerian Muslims who view its violent activities-which include frequent attacks on civilian targets-as entirely un-Islamic.

Nigeria on Wednesday claimed Boko Haram’s six-year insurgency was nearing an end, after the military said it had cleared rebel camps, rescued hundreds of women and children and arrested dozens of suspected militants.

But apparent government and military confidence in counter-insurgency operations was off-set by nearly 140 deaths in a series of bomb attacks and fears of more civilian bloodshed over the Eid al-Adha holiday.

President Muhammadu Buhari has given his new military high command until early November to end the rebellion, which has claimed at least 17,000 lives and made more than two million homeless since 2009.

Since the deadline was announced, the military has claimed successes against the terrorists and said troops had on Tuesday rescued 241 women and children near the town of Banki, close to the Cameroon border.

Hezbollah captures Israeli-made weapons from terrorists in Syria’s Zabadani

Hezbollah captures Israeli-made weapons from mercenary-terrorists in Syria’s Zabadani

Israeli-Made Weapons Seized by Hezbollah in Zabadani

(FNA) ~ A large cache of Israeli-made weapons was seized in Zabadani region during the mop-up operations by the Lebanese Hezbollah Resistance Movement.

After 10 days of the Syrian army and Hezbollah troops’ massive operations to cleanse different districts in Southwestern Zabadani region, efforts still continue to discover the terrorists’ linking tunnels and hideouts.

Only on Monday morning, Hezbollah forces could purge the terrorists from nearly 15 residential blocks in the Eastern part of al-Jasr mosque.

Also they arrested three members of Ahrar al-Sham terrorist group during their house to house searching in Zabadani.

Hezbollah forces also discovered and seized a large cache of Israeli-made weapons and military equipment in areas near al-Rahmah mosque in the Central parts of Zabadani.

The Syrian army and popular forces retook the city of Zabadani from terrorists on September 1.

The Lebanese Hezbollah resistance forces almost completed their mop-up operations in the city of Zabadani that was seized back from the terrorists last Wednesday.

“The resistance forces have purged terrorists from Zabadani in a two-day operation,” an informed source told FNA.

The source reiterated that the terrorists had dug tunnels underneath the buildings in Zabadani to get to other parts of the city.

Then on Thursday, Israel attacked a position of the Syrian Army in Zabadani that was used by government and Hezbollah’s joint troops to pound terrorists, according to a military source.

The Israeli Air Force has carried out airstrikes against an artillery position of the Syrian Army near the town of Zabadani, around 45 km (28 miles) from Syria’s capital Damascus, a military source told Sputnik on Thursday.

“Israeli Air Force planes carried out airstrikes at an artillery position belonging to the Syrian Army,” the source said. “The artillery was used by the army to repel attacks from militants in the eastern part of Zabadani.”

The source added that terrorists attacked Syrian army positions on the east side of Zabadani in the early hours of Thursday. The Syrian military, supported by the artillery shelling, managed to repel the attack after a three-hour battle.

After the Israeli Air Force carried out the airstrike, militants reportedly launched a second assault attempt, also repelled by the government’s forces, according to the source.
