Daesh Drone Bombing-2


This video below is an extract from “Knights of the Departments – Wilayat Ninawa” from late January.


Similar to “Daesh Drone Bombing Run – POV”  it shows the precision despatching of small munitions from an unmanned aerial vehicle. The video shows what seems like a release mechanism.

Below is Featured Videos from Rumiyah-6


Daesh Drone Bombing Run – POV

The video below is the last scene from “Roar of the Lions – Wilayat al-Furat” a storyboard Daesh al-Furat video release January 30, 2017. The video is from a drone point of view, dropping an explosive into a compound. 






Daesh have been using drones extensively over the last twelve months from making propaganda videos to trailing VBIED’s, (tangentcode).  The system of delivery utilising hobby drones is as basic as it is destructive and is easily arranged with some modelling glue a plastic tube and the physics of time, speed and distance.

Military spec Drones have been looted (pic-28 July 2016) are not out of the box, but carefully constructed with long range capabilities. (tangentcode)

Solution – Disable the application that the device uses for telemetry and GPS. This could be done with regional restrictions through the Application developers, such as flight restrictions surrounding airports.

Crack Down Upon Them – Wilayat al-Raqqah


Nineteen minute video from Wilayat al-Raqqah which starts with an execution then proceeds through a collection of fire fights, a VBIED, the identification of dead Kurdish foreign fighter Ryan Lock, ending with an English speaking executioner with a distinctive accent.  


Daesh are downloading Kurdish fighters videos and using them to identify enemy dead with stylised digital transition pop ups. (example) Ryan Lock was reported killed 21st December 2016.cracj-2

Early vision in this video is disrupted as the Daesh fighter with the GoPro is shot dead.


The same tactics of overwhelming light arms fire, flank and encircle are executed like a training run. The second fire fight includes a VBIED with devastating results. The Daesh fighters are well trained and battle experienced, running into the dust after VBIED  explosion ready to loot and collect all the oppositions ammunition in typical guerrilla drill, (and capture and imprison any opposition left alive.)

The final execution performed by an English speaking fighter with typical knife pointing rant, beheadings are turn into bleeding out the victim, then kicking the lifeless body into the dust.



Made Me Alive With His Own Blood



An eighteen minute al-Khayr production designed to lure in heroes for martyrdom through scripted dialogue, play-training in urban ruins, leaping from roof tops and an unsettling focus on young boys. The execution beheading and shooting of the alleged Kurdish PKK spies in an abandoned amusement park in Deir ez-Zor, come after long winding often convoluted dialogues from the teen with the typical “lights are on, but no one is at home” stare. This can be seen in the November 2016 video “Repent and You Will Have Safety From Us” (tangentcode). One interesting note which pushes a once well worn notion,”if you can stand up, you can fight” is the appearance of the one armed fighter, although briefly. 



The video takes a direction which Daesh relish whenever the opportunity arises of using the youngest child executioners as possible. One of the children looks more like it is afflicted with a genetic or kidney disorder and struggles to pull the trigger on what must be the smallest pistol available. The beheading is just as remorseless as the production team take a horror movie long shot of blood dripping through the playground equipment.

The Procession of Light


The Procession of Light“, a forty one minute video from Ninawa, Iraq cataloging suicide VBIED attacks that have plagued the region in recent months.


Daesh have prepared for counter offensives and as their grip on Mosul slowly erodes, their adaptability to take the fight to another area, to gather ammunition or weapons is shown in this video. Small lightly armed mobile groups with a suicide VBIED leading the assault with ‘drone follow vision’ of the explosion. It seems an expensive effort as personal are concerned, and in some cases the damage is often minimal. The tactic of sending in the exploding vehicle shocks the target long enough for the ground assault to unfold. This  technique of overwhelm, capture and loot is used in a number of routines and variations throughout the video. One well used method is to approach with RPG followed by heavy calibre machine-gun fire, or small truck mounted canons and  relentlessly fire on the post for hours until there is no return fire. The Coalition have in recent weeks destroyed Daesh ability of manufacturing VBIED, as can be seen some vehicles are ‘nailed’ together, while others are quiet professional.

Iraq – twin bomb blasts – Jan 2017


 Twin attacks hit al-Sinak, a busy market selling car accessories, food and clothes as well as agricultural seeds and machinery. Minutes after the first suicide bomber detonated his explosives-laden belt, a second struck as a crowd  gathered at a football event. Dozens have been killed and injured in this early new year as the city is besieged by new year terror attacks as the Mosul offensive grinds on.

Raqqah’s Orphan Fighters

Twenty minute video showing the training of child orphan soldiers. This type of video has been well documented over the last two years, (tangentcode + tangentcode). The children are shown training with live fire and in one night muster, shown getting out of bed, putting on their webbing and standing in parade formations before marching into the night. One poignant moment in the video is when one of the children describes the loss of his family from the result of bombings, blubbering with tears standing in the house ruins is a pathetic moment endured only for propaganda purposes, and finally extorted during the execution scene.


In another section of the video the children can be seen watching the grotesque, “Makers of Illusion” (tangentcode) the camera catching their remoteness at the details of the slaughter scene.


In some attempt to balance this content the children are last seen praying in earnest in a juxtaposition to what they are training for which becomes apparent as the final exercise unfolds.








Turkey – Reina Nightclub shooting








A single gunman has attacked a nightclub in Turkey killing thirty nine people and injured sixty eight, four critically. Reina is a popular nightclub which has patrons from all parts of the world. The stategic location of the club should be noted as it backs on to a river and has a small car park around a slightly curved road at its front. 

These details would have no doubt worked in favour of the lone attacker. Cover is provided for an attack on the entrance, as well as providing a staging area, (change into costume providing haemo splatter protection), which is out of sight from security. An escape would also involve such elements as the lone gunman “vanished” from the scene and is still at large.

The repetitiveness of terror attacks on Turkey have left the people numb, as if accepting that this type of event is a part of modern Turkish times. This acquiescence must be removed from a populous mind set as it does nothing but allow terror to become normalised, something which should never be allowed to happen in a society.

Australian Terror Attack Thwarted

Seven men arrested over an alleged Christmas terror plot targeting Melbourne CBD landmarks appeared in court. Three men have been charged and remanded in custody.  A 22-year-old man will face an out-of-sessions hearing later on Friday. A 21-year-old from Gladstone Park was released without charge. Abdullah Chaarani, 26, of Dallas, was the first brought to the dock at the Melbourne Magistrates Court, shackled and with his hands cuffed before him.



Police documents filed with the court allege that between December 1 and December 22, Mr Chaarani “did engage in acts done in preparation for or planning a terrorist act”. Wearing a black Adidas t-shirt and sporting a long beard, Mr Chaarani was calm during his brief court appearance before Magistrate Mary Robertson.


Turkish Soldiers Burnt Alive

The nineteen minute video from Halab has a clear message to Erdogan, the Turkish President. Starting with the fire fight in Al-Bab which proceeds the final event, the immolation of two Turkish Soldiers. The video details the attack showing the ATGM strikes against Leopard-2A4 MBT’s, 21st December in which sixteen Turkish soldiers were killed and thirty one injured. The video includes the now ubiquitous drone vision, as suicide bombers drive VBIED’s into the post, followed with ground vision of the aftermath from the counter strikes in retaliation from EuphratesShield. (10th Dec-tribune.com)

The dialogue spoken in Turkish, and delivered Daesh rant style, berating the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and calling for “destruction to be sown” in Turkey. 



One of the men is believed to be Sefer Taş, who was abducted November 2015.

Karlov Assassination Connections

Andrei Gennadyevich Karlov, (wiki) served as ambassador to Turkey and earlier in his career had worked as the Russian Ambassador to North Korea. He was assassinated on December 19th 2016 in Ankara while attending an Art exhibition by an off duty Turkish Policeman, Mevlut Mert Altintas. The attack was a cowards act and should be remembered as the act of a coward.


The first question that should be asked is. “why was an armed person standing behind the Ambassador?” Regardless of being an “off duty” policeman or any other excuse media offer, this is a “no brainer” in regards to security.


video below

This cowardly event may well be connected to this release from 15th December 2016.



It is very grief-stricken to look at the current conditions of Sham (Syria) and Iraq, especially the situation of Halab (Aleppo) where children, aged man and woman are being targeted. The blood of Muslims is so cheap that the Muslims are being killed in hundreds of numbers. Thousands of women are being widowed. The kids are being orphaned and fatherless. By witnessing the disgraced condition of Muslims, my heart bleeds.

That was a time when Muslims were living prosperously and conveniently under the Khilafah (caliphate) and splendid news and information of triumph were arriving from every place. Each and every place of Muslims was a place of peace and love.

But nowadays, by looking at current conditions, I cannot estimate that those were the Muslims who ruled all over the globe. It is because the Muslims are living inglorious life everywhere and they have accepted infidel and enslaved system of law. Every Muslim country is in state of war either with their unscrupulous leaders or stuck with crusaders. And the countries which are somehow safe from the war, have become alliance of the crusader and have absolutely accepted the enslaved life. They have preferred the comforts and joys of Kuffar (infidels) over the Muslims and in the same way, they mourn over the griefs of Kuffar (infidels) other than the griefs and sorrows of their Muslim brothers.
Though they would have considered the happiness of Muslims to themselves and in the same way, the sorrows of Muslims, too, as stated in Hadees as our Prophet Peace Be upon Him said:

الْمُسْلِمُونَ كَرَجُلٍ وَاحِدٍ، إِنِ اشْتَكَى عَيْنُهُ، اشْتَكَى كُلُّهُ، وَإِنِ اشْتَكَى، رَأْسُهُ اشْتَكَى كُلُّهُ

“The Muslims are like a single man. If the eye is afflicted, then the whole body is afflicted. If the head is afflicted, then the whole body is afflicted.”

Likewise if an individual Muslim is in pain, all Muslims must feel that pain too.

But now this quality is totally obsolete and we Muslims are completely senseless.

It is very sorrowfully stated that the Kuffar (infidels) have become successful in their profaned intentions and they have settled the democracy over us by abolishing the Khilafah (caliphate) and dividing the Muslim countries in pieces. Kuffar (infidels) have limited their thoughts to their countries only. And today, for the sake of his country, Muslims are ready to cross all the boundaries. Even they don’t grudge the killing of Muslims. In the same way all the Muslims have become the noxious patients of so called patriotism. Even the Ulama’ (scholars) are singing the songs of the country. They are relinquishing the system of ALLAH Almighty and are making efforts for strengthening of the system of Lord Macaulay.

The Kuffar (infidels) have targeted every Muslim country one by one on the name of so called terrorism and then they began the massacre of Muslims in that country. Initially, Afghanistan and Iraq became the victims of that war on terror but Muslims remain quiet and even some of them became the allies of Kuffar (infidels) against their own Muslim brothers.

Gradually Kuffar (infidels) targeted every Muslim country after one another and negligence of Muslims was expanded parallel and now the time has come that every Muslim country is besieged in this “coop” so called war on terror.

And now Ulama (Islamic scholars) have adopted the logic tacts and are living their lives under the infidel system of democracy. They are now shamelessly enticing their fiducial trustees on this foul path.

Despite the facts that the blood of Muslim is being bleed in all quarters but still neither the public is ready to get rid of this heedlessness nor the so called Ulama’ (Islamic Scholars) are willing to fulfil mandatory task, though they consider themselves as the inherits of Prophets.

But if the scenario is witnessed through the factual eyes then the most of these Ulama’ will give the practical example of the saying of the Prophet Peace Be Upon Him:

عُلَمَاؤُهُمْ شَرُّ مَنْ تَحْتَ أَدِيمِ السَّمَاءِ

“Their scholars will be the most evil under the sky”

And for the pleasure of these secular leaders, they never grudged to change the teachings of Quran and Hadees fallaciously and now in these current worst conditions they announce the jihad bin nafs as the Jihad-e-akbar (biggest Jihad)

And it can easily be identified from the lives and sayings of some Ulama’ (scholars) that they do not permit for Qitaal (Jihad) in the current situation rather than they believe in the implementation of religion within the boundaries of politics and expedience. Though the Quran has specified the Qitaal Fi Sabeelillah (Fighting for the sake of ALLAH) for the extermination of the harmfulness and noxiousness.

وَقَاتِلُوهُمْ حَتَّى لَا تَكُونَ فِتْنَةٌ

“And fight with them until there is no more persecution”

But Alas! The modern developed mentalities have declared the Jihad as terrorism and noxiousness rather than the Shar’iah has declared this, an open Fitnah (persecution).

And now where these modern inventors of religion are claiming the quitting of Jihad as peace and blessing but the Shar’iah has declared it disgraceful and inglorious.

As the Rasoolullah Peace Be Upon Him said:

وتَرَكْتُمُ الْجِهَادَ، سَلَّطَ اللَّهُ عَلَيْكُمْ ذُلًّا لَا يَنْزِعُهُ حَتَّى تَرْجِعُوا إِلَى دِينِكُمْ

“When you neglect Jihad, then Allah will send upon you humiliation that will not be dispelled until you return to your religion”

The antidotes are considered to be as poison and poisons are considered as antidotes.

O Allah, wake up the Muslims from this conscious sleep and help them to recognize the somnolent and true Ulama’ (scholars), for the aid of their oppressed brothers.

Let them to be on the path of Shar’iah al Mutahharah as a result of this.. Aameen.

This was n’t the only terror act that unfolded. An unknown driver, (which at this time seems to have hijacked the truck) ran through a crowd killing a dozen and injuring up to fifty. (here) in Germany. Initially a Pakistani man was detained in connection with this event, but was later released as the German authorities now expand their investigation to apprehend a Tunisian man.



The suspect in the attack has been identified as Anis Amri. Read more, (SkyNews article)


UPDATE – shot dead by police in Milan. Amri had arrived on a train at approx 1:00am and was stopped by police who thought he was “acting strangely”. Amri then shot and injured a policeman before killing himself like the coward he was.


Amri’s mother has appeared asking who had brainwashed her son. Authorities are also tracking his movements from Berlin through France into Italy to ascertain if he was supported by a network or if he was a rogue element. (SBS)

“Hunters of the Shields” – Abrams Tank v Islamic State (Mosul)



The forty seven minute video released, (originally through YouTube) titled Hunters of the Shields–Wilayat Ninawastarts with a historical run through of battle inclusive with battle elephants. This is in an effort to explain the guerrilla tactics as once extolled by Mao Zedong through the paradox, “revolutionary movements are not dependant on complex mechanical devices.” (Youtube)


The context of the video outlines the Islamic States battle with, and success in destroying armoured vehicles and the Abrahms Tank. John Cantlie appears watching the frontline battle videos in what seems like an editing room. No doubt stitching togther the video files received from frontline fighters.


Cantlie then narrates the POV videos showing the mujahideen sneaking up and throwing a grenade into the opening of the tank’s turret. Cantlie calls the “Abrams”  tank “the Abrahams”  through the dialogue and gives a run down on its cost and capabilities,

Cantlie then takes the viewer on a guided tour of the Al-salam Hospital, which has been almost completely destroyed by ambush on the 7th-8th December 2016, (red marker in map below). The tactic as Cantlie explains, was to allow the Iraqi Division to take the Hospital and then surround it, “like a fish and a lure”. Fox News described this as “a lethal mistake” (here)

Rummaging through the debris Cantlie picks up an Iraqi soldier’s helmet from the 9th Armoured Division, “he won’t be needing that anymore” he quips. He also shows a fragment from a Hellfire Missile which was used in an attempt to re-take the hospital. 




The video is complete with a “drone” hovering over the base as a suicide bombers explode in to dust. Cantlie also explains how the ‘mujahideen’ have no fear and see their death as a release from this world to a paradise.


It is interesting to note that during the Gulf War seven Abrams were destroyed due to friendly fire.

Australian Man arrested advocating terrorism to kill Jewish People

A South Australian man was arrested in relation to videos he had made in November 2015. The man, his name surpassed by the courts, was at the time of his arrest, in jail in the States high-security Yatala Labour Prison. 

“In each video the defendant is depicted advocating with other persons engaged in acts of terrorism via the defendant providing explicit verbal instructions as well as physical demonstrations with weapons as to how to kill Jewish people,” said Commonwealth prosecutor John Clover.

The man is charged under section 80.2C of the Criminal Code Act 1995, which prohibits advocating the “doing” or “commissioning” of a terrorist act.

Videos advocating harm to Jewish people are not uncommon on internet upload sites. The charges alleged arise from a hotline tip which may have arisen after the videos were seen publicly


The case is listed for a hearing in March when declarations would be filed, a hearing in February is listed when a mental health report will be received.

Harbinger of the Deaths – Wilayat Dimashq


Sixteen minute video released through Dimashq, “Harbinger of the Deaths”  on or about the 9th December 2016. This video release coincides with terrorist bombing in Egypt, Yemen, Istanbul, and Baghdad. Connected or not these releases condense fear and confusion giving birth to lingering fears in the citizens everyday lives. The death machine has also released killing instructions through Rumiyah 4 rumiyah4in concord with this release which ends in the execution of five captured Syrian “rebels” who are dropped off to the waiting black clad executioners in hessian sacks. The death blows are gratuitous with anatomical details in high definition. The fire fights which precedes this final atrocity are heightened with the use of ‘night-vision’ camera vision, sparks and tracers illuminating the pitch black creating a science fiction like backdrop.

Those Are My Fathers – Recruitment drive with a bullet

The fifteen minute video released through Al Khayr is a recruitment drive with a bullet. In recent times it has been painfully obvious that the fighter numbers are dwindling. In March 2015 video appeared showing what seemed like orphans being trained for fighting, (tangentcode). The extreme intent of “Those are my fathers” far eclipses any previous recruitment propaganda. With Daesh losing huge swarths of territory some estimates put the attrition of fighters as much as a half  and not less than a quarter. (pic below from January 2016)


The “farm or fight” mantra seems to have been lost in the realisation that it’s every able bodied man to the front lines. The storyboard ends with the execution of four men by the “fathers” who have lost their own sons in battle. The death sentences arise from alleged collaboration with coalition forces.

John Cantlie – Mosul has a problem

John Cantlie pops up in time to detract headline attention away from the SAA’s advances in Aleppo with a sympathy beat down Mosul style.

Throughout the video Cantlie neglects to mention the fact that Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, has been held hostage by Islamic State for just over two years, and that the supply of water to the civilians has been a tactic Daesh used in both controlling and punishing the population. Why let the truth get in the way of a good story?

The other flaws in Cantlie’s dialogue are propped up with interviews from civilians who theatrically gesticulate explanations of the hardships living in Mosul, whilst pointing out the painful obvious. Aside from the scripted narrative and over emphasising drama verbs Cantlie looks almost ghoul like with translucent skin and bony needle like fingers. The only thing missing in this quaint story board and bad two camera swipes…the Christians.

Before watching the video read this statement from the Archbishop of Mosul.


Daesh Recruiter Captured in Turkey

Neil Prakash, the Australian recruiter thought to have been hit by hellfire missile has been captured trying to cross into Turkey from Syria.

This vermin had appeared in a number of videos espousing the logic of death and the hijrah, (tangentcode) and was a key mouthpiece in the brainwashing of teenagers in Australia which led to the foiled Anzac Day plot 2015. (tangentcode)

The value of the intelligence which Prakash will offer will be invaluable to the battle against this vermin scourge. One reason why he was travelling could be his need for medical treatment.

An extradition process will now commence.

Repent and You Will Have Safety From Us


“Repent and You Will Have Safety From Us”  from Wilayat al-Jazirah Media, which feeds into the Islamic State Central Command along with Euprhates Media Office. The video is long on rants and finger pointing, one in particularly annoying ear bashing while the executioners accomplice  stands, mute as if for a moment sensing the ridiculousness of the situation they are in.


The despatching of the collaborators after a tour of airstrike damage is quick and played in reverse slow motion for that trademark shot for the purposes of validation.


This is almost over production for a video with low substance and relies on engaging outrage triggers through the manipulation of children.


Daesh Drone Vision VBIED Attack – November 2016

This is an extract from a video titled “Indeed, Victory [Comes] With Patience” via Wilāyat Dijlah which shows a ground forces attack in tandem with a VBIED recorded with a hobby drone. The overwhelming surprise of the attack coupled with the ferocity of the fire fight allows enough leadtime for the VBIED to travel to the target and drawing cover fire for the ground fighters. As far as a propaganda tool this video production editing between the ground and mechanical support gives a sense of control and confidence, and outlines the basic strategy Daesh have used in Iraq over the past two years. This type of video production is designed to back up or bolster morale, to make the fighters feel that they have the backing and support from his trained comrades, and that they all fight for the same thing, it makes the whole operation look easy and that there is no chance anything can go wrong. In another war the now infamous Baghdad Bob’s and his report, “The Americans are on the Moon” is perhaps similar in its intent.

Sydney Terror Arrests – November 2016

Sydney, Australia. Police have arrested two men, one a seventeen year old who attempted to travel to Syria to fight for Islamic State in January 2015 and the other a 24 years old, Mehmet Biber (below) for travelling to a conflict zone to fight with Al-Qaeda affiliate Jabhat al-Nusra in July 2013. Both have links to other men who are part of investigations under counter terror police.


Mehmet Biber was refused bail and is due to appear again, via video link, on December 15 2016.

The 17-year old faced foreign incursion charges at the Parramatta Children’s Court today where bail was also refused. The matter was adjourned until a date in December, when the boy is due to appear via video link. 

And God Will Be Sufficient For You Against Them (2)


Nearly ten minute video delivering a warning to collaborators through pattern transitions and graphics meshed with Western News clips, some detailed personal slides of Coalition leaders, with executions of prisoners affiliated with the US-backed FSA-linked New Syrian Army.


One the executed men, Abduallah Abdl Hay worked in a mobile phone shop, was arrested after his brother appeared in a training video of the NSA in Jordan. Another man executed, Anis Ismail, was a firefighter, arrested after Daesh inspected his phone and found one of his conversations with some of the NSA affiliates. The charges and reasons that that led to the execution of the third man, Mohamed Abdlallati have not been identified yet.

Teen Terror Arrests – October 2016


Sydney, Australia. Further teenagers arrested in relation to planning acts of terror and allegiance to Islamic State. Two sixteen year olds were arrested carrying large “army style” knives, heading towards the “Bankstown Musalla” prayer hall in Adnum Lane off Featherstone Street. 



One family member, whilst leaving the police station, was asked what the knives were for, answered that the boys were “going fishing”.


One of the teens had previous police contact in relation to not standing during the National Anthem at school September 2014.(7News)


The terror arrests echo back to another two men who had planned a terror attack in February 2015, here (tangentcode).

Police believe the teenagers attended the 15th September 2012, Hyde Park Riots (video)+(video) and held a sign saying: “Behead all those who insult the prophet.”  The two teens remain in custody as police investigate the possibility that other teens at East Hills Boys High have also been radicalised.

Economic and Social Inclusion to Prevent Violent Extremism – World Bank Report


The World Bank MENA Economic Monitor  from the Chief Economist’s Office of the Middle East and North African Region report,  “Economic and Social Inclusion to Prevent Violent Extremism” (pdf).

The report  splits up by region and in one aspect, points out what has become apparent that the Daesh and Foreign Fighters come from a educated and wealthy sector of a society. This was particularly of note with the Dhaka attack where five young man from stable and well supported and financially stable backgrounds perpetrated a terror attack. It is also noticeable from the ‘teen terror arrests’ that these radicalised young men come from comfortable backgrounds. (Operation Rising)


foreign recruits from the Middle East, North Africa and South and East Asia are significantly more educated than what is typical in their region


Two slides of interest shown below show the ‘average age’ of Daesh and Foreign Fighters and the ‘Schooling attained”. The report makes shows how macroeconomics and oil prices in the different regions have crashed in commodity prices, pushing economies into deep recession.

The Syrian war has ravaged the economy, output has shrunk between 50 to 60 percent, the Syrian Pound has lost 80 percent of value, the population has fallen by 23 percent, 12.4 million are displaced internally (7.6 million) and externally (4.8 million) since the start of the conflict, and education is on hold for many of the children living inside and outside of the country.”

The 18-month civil war in Yemen has resulted in 10,000 civilians killed, 2.8 million people displaced and most Yemenis suffering from shortages of food, water, sanitation and healthcare

The outlook for each of the regions is projected.

as projected oil prices trend upwards and production rises, growth is expected to pick up in the medium term. Tight fiscal policy will hold back government expenditure growth while simultane- ously developing new revenue sources, thereby reversing the fiscal deficit

Videos like this are not entirely uncommon however this one comes at a time when UK dandies jig about in the UN calling out Russia and Syria for acts of “barbarism” (BBCwhen the UK fund (over£2 billion) groups, either directly or indirectly, such as the ones seen beheading a teenager (tangentcode), and now beating a defenceless individual into unconsciousness. 


Wilayat Bengal – Boko Haram – September 2016



Fourteen minute video under the banner Wilayat Bengal, And The Disbelievers Planned, But God Planned. And God Is The Best Of Planners ” (Qur’anic verse 3:54) from 23 September 2016 set around the July Dhaka Cafe Attack (wiki). This is not the first time Daesh elements have popped their head up in this region. Four men were arrested in January 2016, after making video media aligning themselves with Daesh. (tangentcode).


The Bengal production could be seen as a gasp for breath as Daesh suffer geographically across Iraq and Syria. One point to remember regarding the Dhaka attack is that the young men were not from impoverished or disrupted back grounds, rather from comfortable middle class families, which provide a nursery for Daesh ideology planted by an extremists elements often disenchanted with their own misunderstandings and spiritual vacuums.  

In related news six top Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (wiki) activists arrested (here), “planning subversive activities in some South Indian states.”

A similar event of push media has also occurred with the reappearance of Boko Haram’s Abubakar Shekau, thought to have been killed, showing up in video media. (Reuters) in a low quality YouTube video. Below is Abubakar Shekau from the Wing Commander Hedima “Nigerian Pilot Beheading” video (tangentcode) February 2015.


And as seen in the September 2016 YouTube video (below) 


Further to this images appear of Nigerian Army attack and Looting .

Malaysian Terror Arrests – September 2016

Video below is an interview with Elina Noor from the Malaysian Institute of Strategic and International Studies with ABC.


The secondary event which is also notable is the 30 tons (1500 bags) of Ammonium Nitrate which was intercepted off the coast of Bali. (here ABC)

South Sulawesi was the intended destination of the chemical. Indonesian Police have six suspects who have been detained.



So Take Warning – Wilāyat Halab


Nearly seven minute video ‘So Take Warning” which refers to Qur’anic verse 59:2. The video runs through the actions of coalition forces attempts to disrupt and destroy Islamic State from within. The execution takes place after a confession, the alleged spie is tied to a light pole, a machine gun pointed at him. The shooting once complete is not the end as the murdered man is then beheaded, blood dark and syrup like.


It is He who expelled the ones who disbelieved among the People of the Scripture from their homes at the first gathering. You did not think they would leave, and they thought that their fortresses would protect them from God; but [the decree of] God came upon them from where they had not expected, and He cast terror into their hearts [so] they destroyed their houses by their [own] hands and the hands of the believers. So take warning, Oh people of vision.”

Ninawa Execution with Cub first kill

Fifteen minute execution of spies video, (below) from Wilayat Ninawa. The executions take two distinct formats with close up beheaded nerve spasms, rolling eyes and the guided child execution. This video is similar to “So Take Warning” which is a reference to Qur’anic verse 59:2 (tangentcode)


The men in the video are alleged to be part of a group who are gathering support from outside Mosul. A FaceBook page is shown which includes a video of in front of an Iraqi flag. With a projector playing executions the men name themselves and describe their charges.



The full terror of the men’s murder is reinforced with the child who can barely reach the trigger of the automatic pistol it carries. This does n’t seem to be an obstacle as the child holds the pistol, the trigger actioned by an adult fighter. This type of child extortion or terror has been used by Nazi’s in WW2, children would often report their own parents if they overheard anti-Government small talk and again the same concept is seen in Orwell’s 1984. The institutional genocide embedded in the child lays waste to any ideas of normality in the future and does more to destroy a future society than can be rationally expected after decades of war.

Somalia – Pledge and Threat



Seventeen and a half minute Furat video released 16 September 2016 with Somalian Mujahideen out on picnic/prayer session with multi-lingual threat fest. The video is quirky with its rough editing and layers of ‘smudge censor’ in an effort to conceal the groups identities. This seems a waste of time as through the video there are moments when the faces can be made out from under the polyester veils.


Through the dialogue words and the names of capitals cities can be made out, the “get ready brother” and the “if you cannot follow you must have an excuse’ narrative is repeated. The video ends with a camel being slaughtered and skinned.

Making of Illusion – process killing


“The Making of Illusionis another one of the few Islamic State videos that will leave an impression unlike any other. The twelve and a half minute “Wilayat al-Khayr” video is much like previous videos such as “Inspired by Satan” in which the individuals murdered have some suspicion cast on them by their use of the internet. Scenes from other videos make a montage of elements, inserts from Paris and Obama round out the usual Daesh storyboard. The deliberately disturbing abattoir scene catches all the animal gratuity of slaughter, the hyper, silent processing of the victims adds a disturbing soundtrack.

The Glory of Jihād – Wilāyat al-Barakah


The Glory of Jihād – Wilāyat al-Barakah” released at almost the same time as “Rumiyah” (tangentcode) is a battle front production interspersed with historical comparisons with the basic premise that death is Glory. video below

The video contains some interesting details, we see the motorbike riding, finger pointing ranter from a previous release “Raiding the Villages to Spread Guidance (tangentcode). (Which may be inviting a hellfire missile his way)


The quirky images continue through the video as we see a falcon chick sitting quiet comfortably on the shoulder of a fighter as he fires an automatic weapon.


The next is the GoPro adorned, one armed shooter, which may signal the fact that if you can hold a rifle and pull a trigger, you can fight.


The video shows the over running and suicide truck bombing of an electrical station, the defiling of dead bodies, which has become a back and forth insult between the ground fighters, a weapons haul and the arrival back at their outpost followed by an impromptu prayer session. The intent behind this release should not be lost in the recent week as events tear like shrapnel through the media, such as France, (here) and the “car attack”, the Belgian “chainsaw attack”  (here) and further terror arrests in UK, (here).

The instalments of terror continue and  are now entrenched in the psyche of the disaffected and lost individuals looking for some meaning to their existence as it is all too common for a man’s worth to be gauged by the mobile phone he carries. The coincidence of September 11th and Eid al-Adha (here) is something the Daesh fear factory tried to seize upon with their inflammatory rhetoric calling for mayhem across the world. The supreme court in Saudi Arabia  announced (here –AJ) that the Muslim festival of Eid will be on Monday, September 12. 

If a new moon was sighted on September 1, then the first day of Eid al-Adha would have been on  September 11 . But since the moon was not visible, the festival will be celebrated on Monday, September 12.”


The coalition continue to battle against the bandit forces (here) who do not employ a conventional battle strategy.


The opportunity, surprise, loot, then run tactic is hard to win against with air power and long range artillery alone. This is shown in the video as the insurgents wave at the planes as they fire upon areas redundant in battle. The fight and the fighters have long past evacuated, disappearing back into the surrounds, as coalition forces pour millions into ordinance, landscaping the region, like shifting wheel barrows of sand on a beach, it is still the same beach.


UPDATE – Sydney Terror Arrest – Minto (here) 9-Sept 2016

Rumiyah – Australian Threat



Rumiyah (Rome) first publication (36°21′N 43°9′E) has caused a stir with its four page rant urging “lone wolf” attacks in Australia.


The response from the Victorian Chief Police Commissioner was cool and firm.

This type of reaction through publications is not a new event. This comes with the news of Sevdet Besim being sent down for 10 years (here) after planning a terror attack in April 2015 (OpRising). The other element is the dusting of Ezzit Raad in Manbij in August. (here) As Daesh forfeit geography on the battleground Rumiyah can be seen as a gasp for doctrine action.

Ezzit Raad

Ezzit Raad was arrested as a result of Operation Pendennis in 2008 and slipped through border control making it to Syria. He had also appeared in Daesh videos along with the now dusted Reyaad Khan from Wales in 2014.


Video released as a tribute.”They envied the boy did not get as quest

The publication itself is a copy of other such zines released in early September.


Some of the images used with the intent to deliberately evoke outrage such as the targeting of the elderly and innocents.


Martydom of the Mujahid Shaykh





The second last paragraph of page 17 (above), is what all the upset is about…Therefore, O lions of the Umma, and those living in Australia..

 Premier of Victoria, Daniel Andrews played directly into the agitation by appearing at a press conference with a wild stare, which does nothing but achieve the goal set about by the publication. Leave it to professional Mr Andrews.


Australian Prime Minister appeared live from Vientiane, Laos to settle things down and reassure citizens in regard to matters of national security.

The Threat Level remains at “Probable”


ISIS European Terror Travel Network

Terror Route

Documents obtained by CNN show how ISIS have an organised network which enables jihadists to travel to Europe. The report centres around men who had been arrested and stopped from perpetrating more attacks in France. 



via CNN

The documents show:
  • a fuller portrait of the suspected terrorists’ extensive use of social media platforms such as Viber, Telegram and WhatsApp, many encrypted for secure communication. One app let them pick their own phone number, allowing them to disguise who was calling them and from where.
  • how ISIS handlers protect their missions by: giving operatives only as much information and money as they need to reach the next phase; contacting them on each leg of their journey; and insisting on pseudonyms, even within teams.
  • how the suspected terrorists constantly exchanged logistical advice with others in their network, including whether or not to use real names at border crossings and how to sneak across those borders illegally. One tip was to hide in train restrooms.

Rats in Paradise – Hamdi AlQudsi sent down

ABC Report in regard to Hamdi Al Quudsi who has been sentenced to six years jail for aiding men to travel to Syria to fight as foreign insurgents. (here)

“Alqudsi made arrangements for the men to travel to the war-torn country between June and October 2013, so they could fight alongside militant groups such as the Al-Nusra front (Jabaht al-Nusra), IS and Al Qaeda affiliates.

Two of the men he assisted — Tyler Casey and Caner Temel — were killed in Syria, while two other men — Muhammed Abdul-Karim Musleh (also known as Abu Hassan) and Mehmet Biber — have since returned.

Amin Mohamed never left Australia and in the Victorian Supreme Court last year, the Melbourne man was found guilty of three charges relating to plans to travel to Syria to fight against the government of Bashar al-Assad.” – ( Raveen Hunjan and Sue Daniel-ABC)


Canadian hostage in Afghanistan – video

Joshua Boyle and his American wife, Caitlan Coleman, who were taken hostage in 2012 near Wardak province, a mountainous region just 40 kilometres from Kabul, and have appeared in a two and half minute video, making a plea for their captors not to be executed in reprisal attacks.

our captors are terrified of the thought of their own mortality approaching, and are saying that they will take reprisals on our familyThey will execute us, women and children included, if the policies of the Afghan government are not overturned, either by the Afghan government or by Canada, somehow, or the United States.”

The Crumbling Nations

Crumbling Nations

A (nearly) nine minute video released through sendvid from Wilāyat al-Raqqah, August 26th, called “The Crumbling Nations” has spiked the interest of a number of groups as it shows the child executioners of Raqqa. This is by no means a new phenomenon and has been well documented over the last two years. Children play an important part in Daesh propaganda and continue to do so. In this video the boys have been labelled, as  Abdullah al-Britani  (the Briton), al-Masri (the Egyptian), al-Tunisi (the Tunisian), al-Kurdi (the Kurd) and al-Uzbaki (the Uzbek). (The yelling or shrieking is ear splitting and has been adjusted in this video)

To the atheist Kurds, what is between me and you are days during which the hair of young children turns grey. The war with you has yet to begin. Neither America, France, Britain, nor Germany will benefit you,”

Update 30 August – al-Britani Child identified by father (here)

Video has appeared back in November 2015 showing the children in school.(tangent code)


The video contains three executions one performed by the ubiquitous camo wearing Mujahideen, then the children and finally the bearded old men squad of four. (It is interesting to note that ammo is used sparingly.)



Interspersed in between the blood fest are images of coalition bombing aftermaths and Obama rants, which follow the formula of Daesh videos from the media production arm.

Life inside the Caliphate – Kirkuk August 2016


Video released from Kirkuk showing life “inside the Caliphate”. The video breaks down into three parts showing a battle scene and weapons looting and the dragging of dead bodies around, the paying of funds and the dispersement of staples such as cooking oils to foreign fighters and finally a session of goat herding.


The video is peppered with long monotonous dialogues spoken aloud by men who look like they need a good nights sleep. The video shows how the flag waving, finger pointing, Quran quotes are just a thin veil over what the Caliphate’s main preoccupation really is, making money….and goats.


South of Manbij – VBIED

Video released through Amaq showing the detonation of VBIED in the village of Maqta Hajar Saghir, south of Manbij directed at YPG fighters. By counting the seconds between the visible explosion and the when the blast sound is heard, the distance from the explosion (where camera is) can be calculated at about 2.1 kilometres. Sound travels at 344 metres per second or 1129 ft/ sec.

Mosul Hospital – August 2016

Video released through Amaq showing Mosul hospital. The video is as short as its intended message and basically shows a basic pharmacy, dialysis patients and a few Atom Incubators.


The lack of goons standing around with guns does n’t mean they are not  there, just out of shot for this video. Of course, trying to verify this video being made in Mosul in August 2016 is something of a magic trick, the video could have been made anytime in the recent past. It may be more pertinent that Amaq have either just received this video or it is ‘stop gap content’ as other field contacts have been neutralised or disrupted.

The state of the Euphrates : Vsikveckhm God

Eighteen minute video released through Al Furat titled “The state of the Euphrates:Vsikveckdhm God” (word of God). The title also appears in other uploads as “And Allah will be sufficient for you against them


In the video there are some surprises that may lead one to think there is an insider within the coalition forces. In one segment a Free Syrian Army officer is shown being video dialogue coached and told how to present body language while speaking.


Next, the failed attempt to seize Abu Kamal, after air support failed to attack the checkpoints, because the beacons on the ground were not activating, (i.e, men on the ground using cell phones to send GPS co-ordinnates to coalition command), the confusion is evident from the recorded messages between the commanders. The soldiers that were left behind, are later shown beheaded, followed by the ubiquitous weapons haul shots.  In one of the many boxes seized are new “Phantom Hobby Drones” shown with Go Pro gimbal and other range extending components attached. Ammunition boxes full of plastic explosives, anti-tank guns and electrical components, computers, radios, all which will make for revenue raising or trade. The complete video is subtitled in English as it is directed to primarily to an American forces audience.

In another segment, the recorded messages between commanders are shown with reference to Daesh commanders escaping battle dressed as women. Interesting, a video appears showing Daesh dressed as women. (here)

Change-of-Heart Jihadists

Change of Heart Jihadists has a golden shine about it for media outlets who squeeze every drop of credibility from a story. But this time the jingo journos have come up with a “weaponised backhander“, an internet catch cry which any Islamic State Media producer with the slightest idea of  propaganda and ‘on the ground’ moral, would shudder at hearing.

Change of Heart Jihadists if correctly propelled could melt a hole through the recruitment drive and ultimately be the beginning of the end for the foreign fighter death cult.

Home sick, and bored, tired of being overly scrutinised, the guest house is like a prison, hours of prayers can all lead to a corrosion of moral. 

Of the 60 Australians currently on the ground with Islamic State groups in Iraq and Syria, it has been revealed up to a dozen want to get out. ”
