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.
