3. Two bombs kills and wounds people in Muslim area of the Philippines
A bomb explosion that killed two people in a Muslim community in Manila was sparked by a personal feud, Philippine police officials said Sunday, but the Islamic State group claimed its fighters were responsible.
Police said a package being delivered by a man exploded late Saturday in downtown Manila's Quiapo district, killing him and another man receiving it at a Shiite centre. Police said four others were wounded.
Another explosive, either a homemade bomb or a grenade, went off more than two hours later near the scene of the first blast and wounded two policemen deployed to help secure the area and investigate the bombing, according to authorities.

4. ISIS widow Sally Jones moved up on US "kill list" after inspiring female terror recruits
ISIS bride Sally Jones has been moved up the US army's kill list amid claims she and her late husband plotted a series of failed terror attacks.
The 49-year-old mother of two from Kent is now considered a "high priority" for assassination after she and her jihadi husband Junaid Hussain masterminded an IS recruitment drive and devised several potential terror plots against allied troops.
The entire article is quite interesting and shows the depth of murderous fanaticism in the whole family. However it never gives her convert name of Um Husan al-Britini. Western media often tends to use the Western name for people who convert to Islam and commit terror or antisocial acts, while using the convert name for people who convert to Islam and preach the narrative of a peaceful Islam.
Here is a video on her from September, 2016:
5. Israeli police kill Palestinian girl who tried to attack them in Jerusalem
Israeli paramilitary police officers shot and killed a knife-wielding Palestinian teenage girl who tried to attack them at an entrance to Jerusalem's Old City on Sunday, a police spokeswoman said.
The incident was the latest in a 19-month-long period of sporadic street attacks by Palestinians against Israelis, and the bustling Damascus Gate entrance to Jerusalem's walled Old City where it occurred has seen many attacks.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said a knife was recovered from the scene together with a farewell letter from the teenager to her family quoting a verse from the Koran that signed off with the word "shahida" - Arabic for martyr.

7. Saudi Arabia will be razed except for Mecca & Medina if it attacks Iran: Defense minister
Responding to Saudi Arabia’s latest threats to take their conflict inside Iran, Tehran said it will leave nothing standing in the kingdom except for Muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina if the Saudis do anything “ignorant,” Al-Manar reports. […] Dehghan’s comment followed unusually blunt remarks by Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who said on Tuesday that any struggle for influence between Riyadh and Tehran would take place “inside Iran, not in Saudi Arabia.”
In a rare interview broadcast on multiple Saudi TV channels, the 31-year-old prince, who was named in 2015 by his father, King Salman, as successor to the throne, outlined his vision of modern-day Iran.
Making use of sectarian terms, Prince Salman said Iran is eager “to control the Islamic world” and to spread its Shiite doctrine, according to AP.
(This may be a good time for the KSA to move all their aircraft and missiles to Mecca & Medina.)
