On Tuesday night, the terrorists launched a nocturnal attack on two sister villages of Mussaram-1 and Mussaram-II in Monguno local government, according to sources, where they rounded up all the men in the villages and opened fire on them.
“We received the sad news (Wednesday) that Boko Haram terrorists had attacked some communities near Monguno,” said Mr. Monguno. “Since their dislodgement from the Sambisa forest, many Boko Haram terrorists have relocated to areas around Monguno where they have been picking on hapless villages and killing residents there.
“On Tuesday, the terrorists attacked the twin villages of Mussaram I and Mussaram II in the night. They went there in the night when the villagers were resting after the day’s fasting and assembled them before opening fire on them.”
Barely 24 hours after the Monguno incident, Boko Haram terrorists attacked Kukawa, a town about 30km away from Monguno. The gunmen arrived Kukawa at about 7pm when the majority Muslim community were observing the evening prayer, preparatory to breaking their fast.
Shamima Begum, 15, Kadiza Sultana, 16, and Amira Abase, 15, who ran away from home in February, spent their first months in Isil’s caliphate under lock and key in an apartment in the jihadists’ stronghold city of Raqqa.
The schoolgirls, from Bethnal Green, east London, were put in the care of a woman handler known as Um Laith – “Mother of the Lion” – tasked with “purifying their Western minds” by instilling the practices of Isil’s hardline version of sharia law.
Hillary Clinton lied to Congress, gave arms to terrorists and destroyed her emails. How much longer can she hide the truth? How much longer can her lawlessness go unchallenged and unprosecuted? Does she really think the American voters will overlook her criminal behavior and put her in the White House where she can pardon herself?
High level officials from Gulf and other states have told this newspaper that all attempts to persuade Mr Obama of the need to arm the Kurds directly as part of more vigorous plans to take on Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have failed.

Before his capture, Salhi allegedly strangled and beheaded his boss, took the perverse photo, covered Cornara’s head in Arabic writing and attached it to the gates of the factory along with homemade ISIS flags, officials said. “This macabre act of decapitation, staged with flags, is new in France.”
In a scene echoing the gruesome violence used by Islamic terrorist groups in Syria, Mr. Salhi’s 54-year-old boss was found decapitated, prosecutors said. His head was affixed to a fence and framed by a pair of flags emblazoned with the shahada, an Islamic creed declaring “There is no god but God, and Muhammad is the messenger of God.”
An analysis of four polls surveying Arab public opinion towards the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) reveals that the group has a bare minimum of 8.5 million strong supporters and that's a conservative estimate. If you include those who feel somewhat positively towards the Islamic State, the number rises to at least 42 million.
ISIS has spread its tentacles further around Europe after a major terrorist group which commands 'as many as 15,000' in the Caucuses region of southern Russia pledged its allegiance to it.
The leader of the Caucuses Emirate, which has carried out over 900 terrorist attacks on Russian soil since its formation in 2007, personally declared his loyalty to ISIS commander-in-chief Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi.
'We need to hurry up and unite so we can cut off the heads of the infidels,' Aslan Byutukayev says in a new propaganda video allegedly filmed inside the predominantly Muslim republic of Chechnya.
It was so much so that we have always suspected that high up “dupes” were used to sandbag on this childish “arm the moderates” nonsense, knowing it would not only be a smokescreen for the shadow government to field their own units, but also to tap into the Pentagon kitty for funding.
In working to track the money flow — a normal tool in establishing who is running operations — our source told us, in regard to the Jordan training for example, that once the money got to Jordan for training, weapons and ammo, the paper trail hit a firewall.
There was no way to determine what the money was spent on from that point, nor who was responsible for making those decisions, as it could be used for subpoenas.
The blast in the town of Ariha in northwestern Syria went off as members of the Nusra Front gathered at the mosque for iftar, the meal with which Muslims break their fast during the holy month of Ramadan.
Observatory, which tracks the war, said the explosion in Salem Mosque in Ariha, also killed a senior non-Syrian member of the hardline jihadist organization. Opposition-based social media websites had conflicting casualty figures with some saying more than 40 people were dead.
No group announced responsibility for the blast, but supporters of Nusra Front blamed rival ultra hardline Islamic State militants who have fought the group on several frontlines in Syria.
Fighters of the self-declared Islamic State have killed some 146 people in a house-to-house massacre of civilians in the Syrian border town of Kobani, a conflict monitoring group says, calling it the second-worse such mass killing by the Islamist extremists since last year.
NPR's Deborah Amos, reporting from southern Turkey, says the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has spoken to witnesses who reported the shooting spree.
Citing medical sources in Kobani, the Syrian Observatory said the civilians "were executed by [the Islamic State] in their homes or killed by the group's rockets or snipers," Rami Abdel Rahman, the Observatory's director said. The group said that militants "fired at everything that moved."
Following their shocking attack in Tunisia, ISIS have released a new video showing militants carrying out a deadly assassination of several high profile court judges in Egypt.The brutal video comes just hours after a car bomb killed one of Egypt's top prosecutors, Hisham Barakat.
It is thought that ISIS's Egyptian franchise, ISIS in the Sinai province, may have been responsible for the deadly blast.
Mr Barakat had been one of the key prosecutors for referring hundreds of alleged Islamists to trial following the trial of former Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi two years ago.
Islamic State (IS) fighters reportedly re-entered the key city of Kobane on Wednesday night as they launched a joint attack on Syrian and Kurdish forces.
The jihadists staged a suicide car bombing that wounded dozens in an area near the Turkish border, and fought Kurdish forces in the streets.
"Fierce clashes erupted… in the center of the town and there are bodies lying in the streets," Rami Abdel Rahman, director of the UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told the BBC. He said fighting was ongoing on Thursday morning.
The United States and other nations negotiating a nuclear deal with Iran are ready to offer high-tech reactors and other state-of-the-art equipment to Tehran if it agrees to crimp programs that can make atomic arms, according to a confidential document obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.
Terrorist attacks worldwide surged by more than a third and fatalities soared by 81 percent in 2014, a year that also saw Islamic State eclipse al Qaeda as the leading jihadist militant group, the U.S. State Department said on Friday.
