West Africa – Islamic State

Five and a half-minute video from West Africa titled “Disperse By [Means Of] Them” showing Islamic State affiliates attacking a Nigerian soldiers base with the same over run and looting tactics which have become the staple attack methodology. The attack on troops followed  the seizing of Gudumbali on Friday September 7th in Borno State. Print media are now reporting that the situation has returned to “normalcy” (The Guardian).

The title comes from Qur’anic verse 8:57 – “So if you, [Oh Muhammad], gain dominance over them in war, disperse by [means of] them those behind them that perhaps they will be reminded.”
