By Transterra Editor
16 Sep 2013

-Al Qaeda affiliated rebels in Syria executed two Alawite men on September 16 in the main square of the rebel-controlled city of Raqqa. Fighters from the “Islamic state of the Levant and Iraq”, a Sunni extremist group affiliated with Al Qaeda, justified the execution on the grounds that the men were “Nusaries”, a derogritory term used to describe members of the Alawite sect of Islam, from which Syrian president Bashar al-Assad hails.

When local women witnessing the execution protested the actions of the fighters, the fighters cursed the women and claimed that the men had raped women in the city of Homs. The men were subsequently executed and their bodies carted away in the back of a pick-up truck. This event has reinforced fears that Sunni extremists will try to eliminate the Alawite community of Syria if president Bashar al-Assad falls from power.

The problem of street children in Kinshasa continues to worsen, despite more than two thousand former street and orphaned children who have been housed and rehabilitated by a national government program. In the DR Congo, the street children are called “enfants sorciers,” meaning the witch kids who are usually victims of domestic violence, the HIV epidemic, early pregnancies, or suspected of practicing voodoo. Most of the children have confessed to pick-pocketing, regular drug use, expecially marijuana and sniffing petrol. A pilot project to rehabilitate thousands of children living on the streets of DR Congo is failing because government is excluding civil society from the rehabilitation program.Two years ago, the government began recruiting Kinshasa’s street kids and placing them into training centres under the auspices of the DR Congo National Service, to provide them trade skills, such as carpentry and tailoring. However following their graduation from life and trade skills training, the children often return to their old lives because there has been no planning by government on how the skills could be utilized by the kids to their benefit.

STORYLINE:

Egypt’s Interior Minister Mohamed Ibrahim said that the Egyptian security forces are fully ready to implement a plan to release the seven kidnapped soldiers in Sinai.

The minister said in a statement to the Independent Egyptian newspaper al-Watan that they already have sent 30 armored vehicles, 90 battle groups, special police units tasked with special duties (to free the hostages), noting that the armed forces won’t take part in the operation and its role is limited to the siege of the region.

The entrances to the governorate of Sinai also witnessed a heavy security presence.

Security forces managed to identify the area where the kidnapped have been detained, according to the statement.

On the other hand, the Egyptian army intensified its presence in Sinai by sending more troops, getting ready for a possible military operation to release the seven kidnapped soldiers.

A military source in Sinai said troops are ready for launching the military operation for freeing the seven abducted soldiers and that troops were waiting for the zero hour.

The source added that a military operation to free the soldiers is ready, but they are still waiting for the orders of the president.

The special operations troops which have arrived in Sinai earlier are characterized by a high level of training as they contain members of the contingent 777 which is specialized in combating terrorism and the implementation of these operations.

First Undersecretary of Health Ministry in North Sinai Dr. Tareq Khater said the state of emergency was announced in all the governorate hospitals.

The Egyptian presidency said earlier that all options were open in dealing with the kidnappers of the Sinai soldiers and securing their release.

Police stations in North Sinai have announced a strike in support of the Rafah and Ouga crossings and in protest against the continuation of the crisis of the abducted soldiers.

The Rafah crossing with Gaza still closed for a fifth consecutive day on Tuesday. The police said they would not reopen Rafah crossing until their kidnapped colleagues were released.
