Islamic State – North Baghdad October 2018

Nearly nineteen minute video released from North Baghdad made up of sections of video files shown in a postcard type storyboard up to recent times including VBIED attacks. Executions feature as most of the content of second half of the release showing the victims in military uniforms or in post of public office along with the building in rubble.

Note – bottom left hand corner of the frame below you can see the clip layer which is being used as audio.This is why “detach audio” exists. Very rare to see this error.

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.”

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.

Conquer the Enemies Kirkuk

Twenty five minute video (below) with formula story board grievances listed along with video of the events generally in the form of political leaders giving speeches and some explosive transitions leading onto a roadblock kidnapping which ends in finger pointing rant execution in which one of the men is prompted to display his tattoo. The release is a day after Syria announced Aleppo is one hundred percent eradicated of vermin Daesh.

Iraq have executed forty women (here) with nearly one thousand rounded up out of the ruins of the Iraqi liberated cities. With the election of Moqtada al-Sadr does this signal  more of an Iranian influence which has increased since the US invasion in 2003. This in parallel to a change in ideological areas as religious centres fluxing between Najaf, the capital Shiadon as opposed to Qom, which was popular under Hussein’s regime.

 

The second half of the video extends the road block kidnapping in what looks like soldiers on leave returning to their base being captured and driven away.

The next connection is shown matching the men with their social media images posing with heavy artillery, some in uniform with other prominent military leaders.

 

The men are cruelly executed, one with large calibre fire. 

 

Then is it the judgement of ignorance they desire? Furat

Fifteen and a half minute video from Furat which is in parts a re-run of previous videos. The title is from the Quaran verse 5:50, “they desire and want this and ignore Allah’s Judgement.”

Iraq is nearing elections with seven thousand candidates competing for three hundred and twenty-nine seats on May 12. The pressure will be ramped up by Daesh in an attempt to destabilise and contort the process no doubt with suicide bombing and general mayhem.

Some of the video is taken from other releases which make up the quick fire editing and scenes of hudud being performed.

It’s all about the money.
