No surprise in some respects as yet another exploding family attack a police checkpoint in Surabaya. The attack killed the four perpetrators, six civilians and four officers were wounded. The Surabaya death toll now stands at twenty-eight—some thirteen bombers and fifteen civilians, together with more than fifty wounded.
Another attack ended with four men “weilding swords” being dusted. (ABC)
Indonesia is estimated have an eleven hundred strong returning nut jobs from middle east conflicts. Videos on this site alone show Indo-foreign fighters appearing in executions videos all the way back to when the disaster of madness started late 2014.
The explosives used in these attacks are not uncommon in the region as they are commonly used in “explosive fishing.” In these events we see againg the tri-acetone tri-peroxide “satans breath” being utilised, again which has detailed explanation videos showing the process of manufacture posted all over the internet. Daesh have also produced videos with this single minded process front and centre of thier content. (Bomb recipe edited “Just Terror”- December 2016 – tangentcode )
Separately on Sunday some 14 hours after the Church attacks, three members of another family were killed when homemade bombs exploded at an apartment in Sidoarjo (red marker in map below), a town bordering Surabaya, police said. (Jakarta Post). The manufacture of the explsoive is extremely volitile and sensitive to friction and abrupt temperature change.
Travel warnings to Indonesia warn against travel to the region.
Note – without seeming jaded or cynical the adoption of one the “bomb children” survivors by an Indonesia policeman could be more of a media prop…just sayin’ – don’t believe everything in the media.
“Instructions to Indonesia” (tangentcode) Jan 2016
and March 2015
and October 2016
Eleven minute video from Al Battar media, which views as ‘fan art‘ production. The video starts with a collage of Baghdadi speeches accompanied with Engish translation graphics as music from the August, 2015 “Fisballah“, (tangentcode) accompanies the colours and sounds which are exaggerated to produce a similar visual effect.
The content then redirects to the Philippines along with the January ASEAN 2017 (pdf) meeting references, and past clashes between Moro and Government, the video ending with the obligatory rant and allegiances to the new brand. One of the transistion graphics with large text spells out the word “Trustworthy” and is profoundly presented, interspersed with scenes of training and flag waving, flag waving and training.
Image below and similar can be seen in the early 2016 videos listed top of page.
AbuAbdillah al Muhajir
Twenty two minute video, with Indonesian subtitles, showing POV fighting, some drone bombings, and a number of fire fights sewn together with the obligatory beheading scene and the overly emotional rant. The details in the video are what make this production interesting.
Video released June 21st through the new “Wilayat The Philippines” on “just paste it” listing various upload venues, some of which have been scrubbed from the internet, calling on the Philippines, Malaysian and Indonesia jihadists to terrorise non-Muslims and especially Catholics.
The video starts with the Abu Sayyaf jungle outposts showing “Bayan” or allegiance to Islamic State. The vision is cobbled together from previous releases, including the April 2016 attack on the Philippine army patrol which is celebrated showing the cache of stolen weapons.
The video continues with a change of background, no longer is the viewer in the jungle, but on the beach with a finger pointing vermin who spews dialogue like a ruptured autobot, AK-47 lazily resting on his skeleton like shoulder.
This is n’t the end of the artillery rant, a second and then a third vermin repeats the rat-a-tat-tat dialogue. Finally, and in English, the classical knife pointing “O Obama” Jihadi John-esque rhetoric culminates in the beheading murder of three orange clad men. The beheading is slow as the blunt knives rips through the unfortunates throats, screams all gargled and muffled, in possibly one the cruelest beheading murders to date.
Video released June 19th, through Al Furat media with a shared dialogue over five different speakers in five different languages. This is much the same as the dialogue going back to ‘Healing of Believers’ chest” and is echoed again, just with different actors.
The title refers to Qur’an verse 4:84
“So fight, [O Muhammad], in the cause of God ; you are not held responsible except for yourself.
And encourage the believers [to join you] that perhaps God will restrain the [military] might of those who disbelieve. And God is greater in might and stronger in [exemplary] punishment.”
