Video below interview with one of the parents, Armagan Eriklioglu.

The astounding question reporter James Oaten asks – “do you think you have been mistreated?

The men, aged 21, 26 and 30, all had their passports cancelled this year in January, March and October because authorities suspected they wanted to travel to a conflict zone. The men are Australian nationals of Turkish background with little criminal history.

Hanifi Halis, 21, of Greenvale, Ertunc Eriklioglu, 30, from Dallas, and Samed Eriklioglu, 26, of Campbellfield have all been charged with planning a terrorist attack and have since faced court.

Since the threat level was raised in September 2014, 90 people have been charged in relation to 40 counter-terrorism investigations across the country.

Way of the Righteousness – Sayna

Forty-two minute video release from Islamic State Sinai which has a number of ‘stand out’ details.

The GoPro wearing fighter getting hit is one, (11.24)

The production is much the same as other Sinai releases but the one thing that sets this release apart are the audio errors in some of the multicamera edits. The firefights at a radio base with the hijacking of a tank, and also the roadblocks favouring the small mobile cells of fighters which dissolve back into the small villages and vast terrain. The attacks are not strategic or with any long term motivations, but a way of replenishing supplies, looting ammunition and taking prisoners for possible exchange or ransom showing the diversification of the fighter cells In one scene the old weapons the men carry are in contrast to the brand new webbing they have on. The video is a showcase for where the money went. 

The video has a number of executions and begins with the slaughter of a goat.

Inside the Caliphate – 8

 

After some nine months AlHayat release the eighth in the series “Inside the Caliphate” with some interesting details in the sixteen minutes of old battle videos cobbled together with some off the shelf animations and transitions.

The basic story-board is set up with Telegraph chat messages interspersed with narrated decrees glorifying terror events such as the Pulse NightClub event and strangely a few clips from the Boston Marathon bombing, together with battle fire fights accompanied with the ubiquitous chant like atonal music vibrating in background.  (Inside the Caliphate 7
