South Korean defense officials on Tuesday said Seoul launched fighter jets in response to “multiple” Russian military planes that entered into the country’s airspace.

A country official said this is the first time a Russian military aircraft made the violation and the responding fighters were forced to fire warning shots at the planes.

Navy identifies sailor who went overboard last week in Arabian Sea

The Navy identified the sailor who went overboard last week from the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln, prompting a search in the Arabian Sea.

The U.S. Naval Forces Central Command Public Affairs Office told Fox News that Aviation Electronics Technician 2nd Class Slayton Saldana was listed as Duty Status Whereabouts Unknown (DUSTWUN).

The Navy told Fox News that Saldana had been assigned to Helicopter Sea Combat Squadron (HSC) 5, which is part of Carrier Air Wing 7.

Saldana, a Virginia native, enlisted in the Navy in April 2015.

He had served with HSC 5 since last July, and was promoted to E-5 earlier this year.

Before then, he had served aboard the USS Iwo Jima.

The Abraham Lincoln was routed to the Arabian Sea in recent weeks in what U.S. officials say is a move aimed at deterrence amid heightened tensions between the U.S. and Iran.

Last week the Fifth Fleet said multiple ships had been conducting a search-and-rescue operation.

Refugee children praise ISIS, vow to ‘crush’ apostates, videos from Syrian camps show

Children born to wives and fighters of the crumpled ISIS caliphate who are now left to fend for themselves in wretched refugee camps throughout Syria are being radicalized at increasingly younger ages, an ominous trend that’s emerged as the newest front in the ongoing battle to stop terror from taking root in new generations.

At the al-Hol camp in Syria’s northeast Rojava region, the problem is on full display.

“We will stand on the heads of the apostates and crush them one by one. By the will of Allah, Islamic State caliphate remains,” five young boys and one little girl chant confidently with fingers waving, an ISIS signature, from inside a tent purportedly at al-Hol.

The disturbing new video, obtained this week by jihadist monitoring service Jihadoscope after being circulated on pro-ISIS Telegram channels, comes on the heels of two other videos which surfaced last week from al-Hol, featuring a group of black burqa-clad women beside an ISIS flag.

“The sun arose on the Islamic State; believers have come from all corners of the world in order to join the glory of jihad. However, the non-believers did not stand down and gathered their forces under the banner of the malicious coalition to kill the Mujahedeen,” the women say, referencing ISIS militants as freedom fighters. “The mujahedeen proved courageous and legendary… We are living in terrible conditions. We see them walking around freely in their (infidel) ways… We are longing to return to the land of (the Caliphate).”

THE LIVES OF ISIS WIVES HELD IN SYRIA: INFIGHTING, JEALOUSY – AND REGRETS

The women also offer a shout-out to their “brothers in the prisons,” insisting they remain both “faithful” and “pure” and are now “more fierce than the lioness when she feels a threat coming.” They also speak to ISIS’ mysterious sought-after leader.

“Our last message is to our dear, our crown, Abu Bakr the Khalifa, we say to you: stay on this righteous path,” they say. “There is no life here with these pigs and apes, and living under their bombs and machine guns… We’d rather die than live among them. And to you enemies of God, do you really think you will get away with what you did in Baghouz? We are like a ticking bomb. You wait and see what will happen to you.”

Most of the wives and children – many of whom are of Syrian and Iraqi origin – arrived at the camp in open-cattle trucks before and after the U.S-backed Syrian Democratic Forces took over the final ISIS stronghold of Baghouz in late March.

“During the height of the ISIS caliphate, there were literally thousands of children being radicalized by ISIS. Dubbed ‘cubs of the caliphate,’ many of these boys and young teen would often appear in segments focusing on training camps where children were readied for combat,” Raphael Gluck, founding partner of Jihadoscope, told Fox News. “And now there is severe infighting in the camp, with a very vocal element loyal to ISIS. The women also made note of the fact that they are raising the ‘cubs,’ the next generation of ISIS fighters.”

Indeed, many of the children in al-Hol are still in the care of their mothers, who also may be radicalized, and there is little in the way of professional help or programs designed to de-radicalize.

“Though relief agencies are trying to get children into educational environments and get them other necessary care, they remain surrounded by ISIS members – both widows and fighters who have embedded themselves among the refugees,” said David Ibsen, Director of the Counter Extremism Project. “They still believe the ideology and are dedicated to promulgating it, which means they are going to do whatever they can to reinforce the ideology in the children.”

According to a May report from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, approximately 11,000 children at the camp between the ages of 6 and 18 have not been to school at all in the past five years, thus as Ibsen underscored, “these children haven’t known much else other than life under ISIS.”

Steven Stalinsky, executive director of the Middle East Research Institute underscored that continued use of children in ISIS propaganda. Last week, the terrorist outfit released a video titled “Victory is to the Most Pious” featuring armed boys sitting and studying the Quran, and weeks earlier disseminated a poster of a boy in fatigues with the text “London, stay tuned for the invasion of the Caliphate Cubs!”

That same week, boys at the al-Hol camp could be seen in footage raising their own homemade ISIS flag, Stalinsky said.

Since the final fall of Baghouz this year, more than 150 children are alleged to have died from war wounds and illnesses according to the World Health Organization. All the while, most foreign governments hesitate to bring the families of fighters’ home citing myriad reasons including legal and safety pitfalls and a lack of adequate psychological resources. Similarly, there is next to no political desire from Baghdad or Damascus to assimilate the languishing ISIS families.

The squalid al-Hol camp has swelled to more than 70,000 displaced persons – some 30,000 over capacity with more than half being under the age of 12. It is filled with both those belonging to ISIS families and those who were victims of the terror group’s brutality.

The guards put in place by the Kurdish Syrian leadership that governs Rojava have long expressed concerns the extremist women and children also present an inherent danger to their own safety and the safety of the broader civilian population. In early March, a female ISIS militant stabbed a guard and, a couple of weeks later, camp guards were forced to shoot as a mob of ISIS-aligned women launched attacks.

“ISIS women are sometimes painted as innocent victims, but many of these women played a crucial role in indoctrinating their children through formal education and indoctrination in the home,” observed Thomas McClure, a researcher for the Rojava Information Center. “This indoctrination is ongoing, as ISIS women organize ideological training for their children in tents, out of sight of the camp authorities.”

He pointed out the salaries of SDF fighters have been cut just to meet the exorbitant daily costs of running the camp, and that only covers the basic supplies and barely the security that is needed. All the while, the radicalization is manifesting itself through hostility to outsiders, to education and to camp authorities.

In May, UNICEF called on UN member states to assist the displaced children, stressing that they must be repatriated to their homeland as soon as possible and that they are “among the world’s most vulnerable.”

“Children are basically blank slates and ISIS took advantage of their innocence to indoctrinate the next generation of fighters,” Ibsen added. “But the threat is that these children will continue to grow up clinging to ISIS’s ideology and one day will put it into action. Until the children are properly de-programmed, they remain threats to everyone which is why it is so important to ensure that they are removed from ISIS’s influence.”

Tainted alcohol kills at least 19 in Costa Rica, health officials say

At least 19 people have died since early June after drinking alcohol tainted with methanol in Costa Rica, prompting a national alert and widening the focus on the problem of bootleg liquor in Latin America.

The Costa Rican Health Ministry said in a preliminary report on Friday it counted 14 men and five women, ranging in age from 32 to 72, who’ve died after drinking adulterated liquor.

“The Ministry of Health continues to carry out operations throughout the national territory in order to reduce the exposure of consumers to adulterated products,” the ministry said.

Six of the deaths were reported in San José, one in Heredia, four in Cartago, two in Guanacaste and one in Limón, according to the health department, which added three of the fatalities are still under investigation.

At least 19 people have died after drinking alcohol tainted with methanol in Costa Rica, according to officials. (Costa Rican Health Ministry)

Government officials have so far seized around 30,000 bottles from brands suspected of containing methanol, with names includintg “Aguardiente Molotov” and “Guaro Gran Apache.” Aguardiente translates to English as “fire water.” Both it and guaro are traditionally distilled from sugar cane.

According to the World Health Organization, a trace amount of methanol is common in fermented drinks, but, in large quantities, it can make someone very sick. Dr. Devi Nampiaparampil, an associate professor at the New York University School of Medicine, told “FOX & Friends First” on Monday that methanol is typically used in wiper fluid to clean windshields and solids.

“The problem with methanol is that it’s so much more dangerous than alcohol,” she said. “It can make you blind, it can damage your kidneys and you might not even realize this at first and then you can die.”

Nampiaparampil said just 30 milliliters — about two-thirds of a shot glass — is enough to cause permanent blindness.

“That’s the danger,” she told “FOX & Friends First” “Let’s say you drink too much alcohol, you might know pretty much in a couple hours that you’re sick. Methanol you might not realize it right away, it can happen days later.”

Nampiaparampil said issues develop when the liver tries to get rid of methanol and converts it into something “that is more dangerous.”

“So you can have headache, abdominal pain, all these things but unless you thought you had some other issues you might just think you’re sick, you’re on vacation or you ate something wrong,” she said.

Liquor sellers sometimes dilute products with toxic methanol to increase profit margins or raise alcohol content.

“Most likely this is related to some type of manufacturing error, that when they were trying to make ethanol they accidentally made some methanol,” Nampiaparampil said. “So that can happen in some counterfeit liquors.”

Donald Corella, head of emergency services at Calderon Guardia Hospital in San Jose, who was quoted in the Argentine daily newspaper La Nacion as saying some of the alcohol tested contained between 30 to 50 percent methanol.

Corella added that while four people at the hospital survived, they sustained “very serious after-effects” ranging from irreversible total blindness to brain lesions that cause tremors similar to Parkinson’s disease.

President Carlos Alvarado said on Twitter he “deeply regrets” the lives that have been lost and has instructed the Health Ministry and other authorities to collect “all possible data” in order to determine who is responsible.

Bootleg liquor has recently come under the microscope after the deaths of several Americans either during or soon after their stays at resorts in the Dominican Republic and establishments in Mexico.

Islamic extremists detonate car bomb in Somalia, killing 10, police say

A car bomb by Islamic extremists in Somalia’s capital on Monday has killed at least 10 people, say police.

At least 15 others were injured when the car packed with explosives and parked near a busy security checkpoint by the city’s airport was detonated by remote control, said Capt. Mohamed Hussein.

Responsibility for the attack was claimed by Somalia’s homegrown Islamic extremist rebels, al-Shabab, who are allied to Al Qaeda.

The powerful explosion which rocked Mogadishu occurred in the morning when many people were on the road going to work and others were traveling to attend the Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabia’s Mecca.

Many of the victims injured by the bomb blast have suffered critical wounds, said witnesses.

Ambulance sirens echoed across the blast scene as soldiers at a nearby checkpoint fired in the air to disperse onlookers who gathered nearby and to stop motorists trying to speed through the site amid the chaos.

Israel’s internal security service said Sunday it had foiled a plan to carry out a terror attack at a hotel in Israel, according to reports.

Adel Abu Hadayeb, an Arab-Israeli man accused of supporting the militant group Hamas, was caught trying to carry out the attack at the Leonardo Hotel in Ashdod, which is about a half-hour from Tel Aviv, The Times of Israel reported, citing The Shin Bet security service.

Abu Hadayeb, of the southern Bedouin town of Rahat, reportedly was indicted on Sunday for allegedly trying to bomb the hotel, which is near where he worked as a gardener.

The 20-year-old allegedly became a supporter of Hamas after being exposed to promotional materials online. Shin Bet explained it was part of a trend in which Israeli citizens were being “influenced by Hamas propaganda spread on social networks and through Palestinian media,” the Times of Israel reported.

The online newspaper reported that Abu Hadayeb had already tried to build a bomb and a rocket for the attack when he was arrested last month.

He allegedly led investigators to five grenades and a gun he had in his possession as well.

The teen allegedly went to military checkpoints and police stations and sent the Hamas operatives footage from the Temple Mount in Jerusalem and other sites.

Venezuelan fighter jet ‘aggressively shadowed’ Navy aircraft over Caribbean Sea, US military says

A U.S. Navy intelligence aircraft was “aggressively shadowed” by a Venezuelan fighter jet over the Caribbean Sea on Friday in a move that U.S. officials are calling “unprofessional” and endangered the safety of those on board.

The U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) said Sunday in a news release that a U.S. Navy EP-3 Aries II aircraft was flying a mission in international airspace when it was approached “in an unprofessional manner” by the Venezuelan SU-30 Flanker fighter plane.

“After reviewing video documentation, we have determined the Russian-made fighter aggressively shadowed the EP-3 at an unsafe distance in international airspace for a prolonged period of time, endangering the safety of the crew and jeopardizing the EP-3 mission,” SOUTHCOM said in a statement.

SOUTHCOM said that the U.S. “routinely conducts regionally-supported, multi-nationally recognized and approved detection and monitoring missions in the region to ensure the safety and security of our citizens and those of our partners.”

The EP-3 aircraft was “adhering to international standards and rules” at the time of the incident, SOUTHCOM said.

SOUTHCOM also shared a video of how close the Venezuelan fighter jet got to the Navy plane on Twitter.

The Navy plane, an EP-3 aircraft is generally used by the Navy for anti-Submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare and has a range of 2,380 nautical miles, according to a Navy fact sheet.

The incident underscored rising tensions between the two nations. The U.S. backs opposition leader Juan Guaido’s attempt to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

Venezuelan officials claimed the aircraft entered Venezuelan airspace without notification and was “a clear provocation” in addition to being in violation of international treaties. Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said on Twitter the incident happened around midday on Friday, and created a safety risk for commercial aircraft from the country’s main airport.

The Venezuelan  Operational Strategic Command also shared a map of where the incident took place.

VENEZUELA’S WAR ON CHILDREN AT A ‘BREAKING POINT’ OVER LACK OF MEDICAL CARE

SOUTHCOM said that the “unprofessional” act demonstrated a continued action by the Maduro regime to “undermine internationally-recognized laws and demonstrate its contempt for international agreements authorizing the U.S. and other nations to safely conduct flights in international airspace.”

“Despite the Venezuelan people’s suffering, his nation’s vital infrastructure crumbling, and children starving, Maduro chooses to use his country’s precious resources to engage in unprovoked and unjustified acts,” SOUTHCOM said.

The incident over the Caribbean Sea came just over a month after a Russian fighter jet buzzed a U.S. Navy reconnaissance plane over the Mediterranean Sea three times in what the Navy called an “irresponsible” manner. The U.S. P-8A Poseidon aircraft was flying in international airspace on June 4 at the time of the intercepts, Navy officials added.

The Russian SU-35 “conducting a high-speed pass directly in front of the mission aircraft” that caused turbulence “put our pilots and crew at risk,” according to a statement from the Navy’s 6th Fleet. The entire encounter lasted almost 3 hours and the U.S. plane was not trying to “provoke this Russian activity.”

Venezuelan fighter jet ‘aggressively shadowed’ Navy aircraft over Caribbean Sea, US military says

A U.S. Navy intelligence aircraft was “aggressively shadowed” by a Venezuelan fighter jet over the Caribbean Sea on Friday in a move that U.S. officials are calling “unprofessional” and endangered the safety of those on board.

The U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM) said Sunday in a news release that a U.S. Navy EP-3 Aries II aircraft was flying a mission in international airspace when it was approached “in an unprofessional manner” by the Venezuelan SU-30 Flanker fighter plane.

“After reviewing video documentation, we have determined the Russian-made fighter aggressively shadowed the EP-3 at an unsafe distance in international airspace for a prolonged period of time, endangering the safety of the crew and jeopardizing the EP-3 mission,” SOUTHCOM said in a statement.

SOUTHCOM said that the U.S. “routinely conducts regionally-supported, multi-nationally recognized and approved detection and monitoring missions in the region to ensure the safety and security of our citizens and those of our partners.”

The EP-3 aircraft was “adhering to international standards and rules” at the time of the incident, SOUTHCOM said.

SOUTHCOM also shared a video of how close the Venezuelan fighter jet got to the Navy plane on Twitter.

The Navy plane, an EP-3 aircraft is generally used by the Navy for anti-Submarine warfare and anti-surface warfare and has a range of 2,380 nautical miles, according to a Navy fact sheet.

The incident underscored rising tensions between the two nations. The U.S. backs opposition leader Juan Guaido’s attempt to oust President Nicolas Maduro.

Venezuelan officials claimed the aircraft entered Venezuelan airspace without notification and was “a clear provocation” in addition to being in violation of international treaties. Defense Minister Vladimir Padrino said on Twitter the incident happened around midday on Friday, and created a safety risk for commercial aircraft from the country’s main airport.

The Venezuelan  Operational Strategic Command also shared a map of where the incident took place.

SOUTHCOM said that the “unprofessional” act demonstrated a continued action by the Maduro regime to “undermine internationally-recognized laws and demonstrate its contempt for international agreements authorizing the U.S. and other nations to safely conduct flights in international airspace.”

“Despite the Venezuelan people’s suffering, his nation’s vital infrastructure crumbling, and children starving, Maduro chooses to use his country’s precious resources to engage in unprovoked and unjustified acts,” SOUTHCOM said.

SOUTHCOM added the action by Venezuela “demonstrates Russia’s irresponsible military support to the illegitimate Maduro regime and adds to Maduro’s growing legacy of reckless and negligent behavior, which undermines international rule of law and efforts to counter illicit trafficking.”
