Stay For the End Times – Halab

Twenty minute video “Stay For the End Times” from Halab showing suicide VBIED’s and the over running of an outpost, but the video also contains some  “before and after” scenes. Transitions are smooth in this production and the POV video game like reality turned up to maximum.  

The videos depicts a dead infant in a staged pose for the video. The full injury is shown through a sweeping pan as the men stand motionless.

 

 

 

Arrows of the Monotheists – Karkuk

There are a number of close calls for some of the targets and some interesting shots with tracer fire for the spectacle, along with laughing from the sniper and spotter.

London Car Terror Attack

London.

On the anniversary of the Brussels attack (wiki) a man, (later named as Khalid Masood, aka Adrian Russell Ajao) has driven a car into people injuring up to 40 people and killing three. The attacker was quickly neutralised however only after stabbing and killing a policeman.

(One of the deceased was later identified as Utah man, Kurt Cochran).

Video below showing the speed the car was travelling, and the person who fell into the river. later identified as Andreea Cristea tourist from Romania.

Update – April 6th 2017 A 31-year-old Romanian tourist who plunged into the River Thames during last month’s terror attack outside the British parliament has died.

The car used in the attack was rented in Birmingham, where a number of arrests have recently taken place.

Almost a full day later Daesh push out a release through Amaq which has been seen by media as “claiming responsibility”. This is merely an acknowledgement of the act. If Daesh were responsible the notification would have been released minutes after, not nearly a day later.

“authorities will be concerned he may have become radicalised in prison.”

“He had a young child, who I’d think was about five or six years old” (read here)

Update – In Belgium a 39 year old French national was foiled as he attempted to copy the London Attack. (here) Weapons were found in the car.

Update – Further arrests 27th March 2017 (here – Daily Mail)

Words Drenched in Blood

“Words drenched in Blood” is a ten minute production from Furat, mostly taken up with a rant about the obligations and duties of Muslims as seen through the teachings of extremist Islam. The English speaking finger pointer sits in his VBIED with a wild glazed stare, as he reads from what seems to be an iPad or a laptop, (in the reflection in his glasses).

This is a video which is desperate in its attempt to remain viable. Daesh now rely on the suicide VBIED and have adjusted their spin to include this new angle. This video narrative is aimed at the mentally unstable and vulnerable, isolated and easily controlled individuals to act out in terror acts.

Daesh Battle POV – The Sword of Courage

The twenty three minute video, “Sword of Courage” from Jazirah is a threaded together POV battle vision of Daesh storming an outpost and looting equipment.

This attack and plunder methodology has evolved from late 2014 as technology, training and equipment have become available. Daesh now start the attack from greater distances. As opposed to “sneaking up” and overwhelming their target, Daesh now have guided rockets, artillery and drones which has given them an ability to attack with fewer fighters for the same resource rich outcomes.

daesh-3-3-1

The video shows a half dozen lightly armed APC’s carry fighters to a post which has come under advanced fire and drone bombing. The advanced attack has used a grader-tractor to breach the post’s defensive dirt berms allowing a VBIED to drive through and detonate. A small number of survivors from the initial attack are slowly and maliciously picked off, their bodies defiled. The ammunition is looted and anything else that is not nailed down is either destroyed or stolen.

Drones dropping small explosive are now common in lightening war.

Recent reports from Coalition claim the numbers of Daesh fighters has taken a toll in recent months, however there remains a hard core of well trained and fluid fighters  still causing damage and providing training.

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.
