Alert When There Is Danger – April 2017

 

Twenty one minute video from al Furat, released April 5th, coinciding with Rumiyah 8 and al Naba 75, all of which have a single common thread, Abu Sulayman, the Daesh on line media production creator, allegedly killed after an airstrike near Tabqa earlier this week. Sulayman aka Ahmad Abousamra, born in Paris, grew up in Boston, was the subject of a $50,000 reward stemming from connections to a Massachusetts terrorism investigation surrounding Tarek Mehanna, who was arrested in 2009 and convicted of terrorism-related charges in a Boston court in late 2011. 

The video shows a number of executions of retaliation for coalition strikes in which the King of Jordan is featured heavily in the images and news clips videos that accompany dialogue narrated in English. The brutal beheadings with the small near blunt knives is deliberate attempt to prolong the suffering of the victims.

Story of Nafir – Raqqa

Daesh recruitment video from July 2016, now recirculating on upload outlets, directed towards the young disillusioned and mentally unstable young men who are needed to drive IED’s and battle against over whelming odds as part of a skewed religious duty and negatively geared logic.

 

And You Will Be Superior – Wilayat Ninawa

Thirty five minute video from Ninawa “And You Will Be Superior” (Qur’anic verses 3:129 and 47:35), which documents the VBIED and sniper attacks in Mosul. The video starts with the attack on Iraqi forces from December 2016, (tangentcode) and proceeds through street fire fights between the Iraqi soldiers and Daesh. (video below)

Previous video from Mosul from August 2016 shows some of the same hospital personal. (tangentcode)

Drone video documents the suicide bombers driving up to their targets along with some intriguing video of helicopters passing by and at one point a coalition drone. *The explosions which are shown also provide an insight into the types of explosives Daesh are using.

The video includes sniper vision and demonstrates how injured fighters are used to man the VBIED’s with the familiar mantra “no excused” which was seen in Mosul in March 2015 (tangentcode), who can, will fight.

The video also shows a segment of Iraqi video showing men smoking cigarettes, something which was forbidden under Daesh administration.

Other interesting details are the “FILA” footwear one driver wears, which are identical to the “FILA” footwear worn by foreign fighters in Syria seen laying explosives at the Hayyan Gas Plant, February 2017.

Spot the take off area, then estimate the distance to the smoke on the horizon, this then provides an estimate of the range in which Daesh are currently capable of operating within.
