Sit and Wait For Them At Every Place – Kirkuk

Eleven minute video which has some resemblance to the series “Harvest of the Soldiers” (tangentcode). The title is Quranic verse 9:5 (here) and is used in this context to align roadside bombs and night attacks on passing traffic as combative counter actions. Roadside explosives are shown being made and ultimately detonated, some successful others not.

The video contains a number of executions which are rough and amateurish and void of any district measure of impact aside from the brutality.

” when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”

Harvest of the Soldiers – Parts 1 – 11

Nearly four minute videos made up of short transitions showing percentage statistics in an effort to convey an image of resilience or perhaps announcing the Islamic State are still an entity. This release may also be connected to the attack in Sweida, the Baath Party centre, and the executions in recent days of hostages with the intention of striking fear into the citizenry.

Mindanao – July 2018 Offensive

Mindanao, Philippines Government forces clear out thirty militants with allegiance to Daesh. Similarities can be drawn upon from the Marawi siege (tangentcode) & (tangentcode) almost a year to this month which left Marawi a heavily damaged ghost city.(The Atlantic) – video below

There are also concerns about Asian Isis fighters coming back from the Middle East possibly seeking refuge in the Philippines.

Indonesia and France – pre Ramadan attacks

Indonesia is again the centre of a “pre-Ramadan” attacks on three Christian churches within minutes of each other, killing eleven people (at this early stage) and injured forty, mostly children. The first attack at Santa Maria Roman Catholic Church, killing four people followed by an attack at Diponegoro that killed two people, and thirdly two died at the city’s Pantekosta Church which was perpetrated by a family of six. The father, later identified as Dita Oepriarto, exploded a car bomb, two sons aged 18 and 16 used a motorcycle for their attack, and the mother Puji Kuswati, was with daughters aged 12 and 9 for her attack.

 Map below show Christian Churches in Surabaya.

The style of this attacks is a counter point where women, along with their children are now the detonation catalysts. This can be seen almost in stereo as Daesh called upon women to fight at the front as seen inInside the Caliphate-7

The attacks in Surabaya comes nearly a week after the Depok Prison riot in which five guards were executed and one inmate died. (ABC) Again this event was claimed by Daesh media spigot AMAQ, which had the number of people dead incorrect, the real motivation for the riot may have arisen from something much more basic, National Police spokesman Muhammad Iqbal,

a dispute had broken out with prisoners who objected to authorities making checks on food being brought into them.”

Half way around the world an attack takes place in France in what is known as the “Opera district,” by an as yet unnamed twenty one year old French citizen born in Chechnya. He was categorized in France as “fiche S”, an indication used by law enforcement officials to flag people who may be a threat to national security. Police union representative Rocco Contento told Reuters that the assailant, after attacking bystanders with a knife, rushed at police shouting “I will kill you, I will kill you!”
He was then shot by the officers.

Francois Molins, the Paris prosecutor,

At this stage and on the basis on testimonies describing the attacker shouting ‘Allahu akbar’ while attacking passers-by with a knife, as well as the modus operandi, the counter-terror section of the Paris prosecutor’s office is investigating.”

Witnesses say the assailant was shouting “Allahu akbar” and trying to get into restaurants as diners barricaded the doors.” (Telegraph)

Daesh claiming responsibilty must be taken with a broad general view as in the past such claims remain unverified and unsubstantiated.
