The explosives were inside two motorcycles that were parked in areas. No word on if they have video footage (if infront of pdki they will) or who initiated the attack. But where the political office is there are numerous checkpoints for vehicle searches and such so it wasn't some amateur lonewolf ISIS attack. The motorcycles passed through atleast 3 checkpoints on the road to koyesinjaq (or koya)

There's been a attack in sistan/balochistan against security forces as of 10 minutes ago the fight is still on going. There is coordination happening between pdki and other parties now for a coordinated push on Iranian positions. As for the attack so far 10+ KIA with dozens wounded. KIA includes Iraqi forces and Iranian kurds. This looks like a event that will propel Iranian Kurdish nationalism to another level. There will be reciprical attacks in the coming days/week's. I will post as they happen and links to pics/vids of contacts

The area I am at we've been told to get ready but not to attack yet. It looks like the group's are going to be hitting outpost positions and or the actual Iraq/Iran roadways. Waiting on orders now for the go ahead. And heavy weapons are being moved along with t echnicals are being put in entrenched areas.

Lol. As bad as it sounds I came to the region to help, not make money. I just got caught up in a on going insurgency in multiple areas (balochistan and Iranian kurdistan). Could I make $ probably. But is $ everything? Nah. How many people have crept into the Iranian border with seperatists or in waziristan area without approval. I like to fight for the democratic underdogs that our political policies have neglected. It's as much as a social excitement as it is trying to right the wrongs out country has done to areas by misunderstanding cultures,religions etc. I'll probably die in a inhospitable area with a insurgent group but atleast I have gained cultural and political knowledge that many don't see. I've picked up Urdu,Arabic,behdini,sorani and kurmanji in 24 months as well. So it's enjoyable. I get to see a side not many get too.

Since I am sure I'll get messages. I spent some months with a group associated with the hiqqani network. And unlike our intel or scholars would believe they are nationalists over islamists. Theyve allied with the deplorables(ha Donald trump reference)as its a way for them to continue their fight. i spent months in paktia fighting against supposed islamists who I now spent time with to realize they are nothing more then a psychotic nationalist movement not Islamic.
much like Iranians. Majority are secular they just don't want to be hanged and or see no way out against their political system. They are however heavily nationalist over Islamist but will support the regime if attacked by a outside force.
And it is super easy to cross multiple countries in the ME to SW Asia without getting a single passport stamp.

The Hiqqani tribe is a mix of jihadist assholes, nationalists and thugs rolled into one. Many don't support attacking western countries in jihad but do support the expulsion of US forces and western countries out of Afgh. The thing with a lot of these tribes allied to the Taliban is the Taliban never really fucked with them but gave them space to do as they pleased for the most part as they didn't want to lose the support or have them against them. The tribalism in the afgh/pak area is significant. Piss off the tribes & elders and you have issues. Keep them appeased/somewhat incheck and your fine. The west failed to understand the issue on multiple levels.
I'm not pro Taliban by any means either but our failure was not getting the tribal areas to continually back a new afgh gov. They see the current gov as a puppet regime such as what was implemented in the soviet-afgh war.
Until this is resolved we either need to keep troops 24/7 in afgh or somehow reconcile these cross border tribes to not support insurgency activities and actions. And after 8+ years its going to be hard if not nigh impossible to do so.
