Afghanistan – “Surely Falsehood is Ever Bound to Vanish” an eight minute quasi professional video narrated in English which attempts to show the American tax payers the enormous resources which are poured into the thirty tear war with no end in sight. The title comes from (Qur’anic verse 17:81.)
The video shows militants gunning down soldiers as they escape, even taking one prisoner. The final scene shot from the ubiquitous floating drone shows a HumVee, packed with TNT, oxidise into dust.
Eleven people are dead and more than fifty hospitalised after an early afternoon, terror attack. A home-made nail bomb detonated on the St Petersburg metro coinciding with a city visit by the Russian president Vladimir Putin.

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.
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.
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.
“Confronting ISIS” from 2016 with reporter Martin Smith explains in detail the emergence of the Islamic State through a well presented and detailed timeline.

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.
