1. Most #Afghanistan analysis of late has been preoccupied with the strategic inroads being made by the #Taliban.

Meanwhile, #IS’s affiliate in #Afghanistan, #ISKP, has been experiencing a dramatic resurgence in the country, one that has gone almost entirely under the radar. Image
2. Yesterday, #ISKP reported 3 attacks, killing and injuring 44. The day before, it claimed to have killed/injured 20.

(While devastating, these ops are small compared to the 4 biggest of 2020, in which more people were killed than all other attacks combined since Jan '20.) Image
3. While #ISKP’s attacks in 2021 have so far been of a smaller scale than the biggest ops of last year, they are increasingly being targeted at civilians.

This graph shows how, since Jan '21, #ISKP has been walking back its war on the #ANDSF and focusing more on non-combatants. Image

Project your own atrociousness onto the adversary. Cast it far. Cast it wide. Those who act in parallel with yourself toward the same ends will recognize from a concentrated view of the aggregate picture.
Relentlessly attack the character of anyone who speaks this truth to the public. For surely they speak insanity.

The enslaved masses must never be taught how to read that which is projected upon and past them.

They are matte screen to be used and blinded by any illumination.

De journalist #Kashoggi, die in opdracht van de Saoedische kroonprins #MBS zou vermoord zijn, steunde #IS en noemde de onthoofdingen in #Syrië een 'efficiënte psychologische oorlogstactiek'.
#Kashoggi zou ook een goede vriend van Osama bin Laden geweest zijn.
Kroonprins #MBS van Saoedie-Arabië vaarde tijdens de #TrumpAdministration een gematigder en bredere koers: minder #islamisme en toenadering tot #Rusland.
De recente US-bombardementen op pro-Iraanse milities in oost #Syrië geven terug meer bewegingsruimte en bescherming aan #IS.
#Biden stelt nu Saoedie-Arabië verantwoordelijk voor de moord op #Kashoggi.
Zijn de islamisten terug aan zet met de #BidenAdministration?

[THREAD] 1/ Over the past year, the Islamic State claimed 2767 military operations. The overwhelming majority of these attacks targeted Sunni Muslims, although the group never described them as such. 40 attacks were against Shia civilians. 34 attacks against Christians/churches.
2/ Detail about the methodology: I gathered the data from the 53 issues of IS weekly magazine al-Naba’ published in 2020 (cf. the front page of the issue 219). For every single claimed attack, I analysed the following information: target, weapons used, spoils of war, geolocation. Image
3/ The first finding is that IS was a bit less active in 2020 than in 2019: - 423 military operations. #Iraq was in the first place. #ISWAP and to a lesser extent #ISCAP were on the rise and regularly on the front page of al-Naba'. #ISKP and IS in East Asia were much less active. Image

Military Situation in #Syria

As we entered #TheEndgame in the takedown of the dark #Cabal, it is not a surprise that #Daesh, a Jesuit creation, attacked and captured SAA-positions east of #Hama

#Hama lies in the middle of the Syrian #Goddess #Vortex

Map: ImageImageImageImage
The real hidden reason for the #Syrian conflict is the battle for the Syrian #Goddess #Vortex which is one of the most important energy points in the planetary energy grid

More info:…
The Syrian energy vortex is actually a pentagram w/ five ancient cities: Image
Whoever controls the #Syrian #Goddess #Vortex is very close to controlling the planetary energy #leyline system

Whoever controls the energy leyline system has direct access to global #consciousness of #humanity

This is why the Jesuits have engineered the creation of #Daesh #IS ImageImageImageImage

My second paper for @GI_TOC has just gone live.

It presents the first evidence of a criminal network based in #Somalia involved in the transfer of arms from #Iran to the #Houthis.

Some highlights (thread):…
The dhow Al Bari 2 was seized in the Gulf of Aden by the #Saudi Navy on 24 June 2020. It was discovered to be carrying a consignment of arms reportedly destined for the #Houthi administration in #Yemen.

Here's a full list of the seizure contents: Image
The head of the network responsible for the Al Bari 2 smuggling operation is Mohamed Omar Salim, a Somali national based in Bosaso. Salim's network has links to #Somaliland, Yemen, the #UAE, and Iran.

As Khalid yesterday claimed covering 2/3 of #Afghanistan territory with drones and formation super elite units "Rangers", pro #Taliban accounts announced introduction of drones into combat ops (this particular model on pics)
This is nothing special, because same tactic was used in #Syria way, way before. Only #Taliban have a late start. Until now they used drones only for media purposes #Afghanistan
If #Taliban really introduce drones into battle, it will be difficult to combat them, especially in urban areas #IS in #Syria inflicted significant casualties with drone usage #Afghanistan

Thread. Decades of non-Muslims carrying the water for Islamist extremists whose primary victims are Muslims.

More insidiously, such obscurantists conflate Islamism with Islam -directly tarnishing the faith and stoking Islamophobia- while camoflaging Islamists in the West.
Oct 2020: Aside the "copy and paste" journalism on display below, this is the grossly misleading headlines reporting on the beheading of French school teacher Samuel Paty. These are two major mainstream outlets - not fringe alternative media, Al Jazeera or satire site.
Two terrorist leaders of the world's most brutal, extremist, leviathan regimes that oppress and behead Muslims, hang them from cranes, throw them off buildings, enslave, mass rape Yazidi women and girls while carrying out attacks globally are headlined in these Kafkaesque terms:

Ich habe das Gefühl ich müsste mich mehr zum Thema #Islamismus äußern. Einfach das Ganze verurteilen reicht aber nicht. Stattdessen möchte ich euch die Geschichte des Islamismus erzählen und meine Ansicht verdeutlichen wie man dagegen am Besten ankämpft. (Thread) /1
1. Was ist eigentlich #Islamismus?: Der Begriff wird häufig sehr unterschiedlich von Medien und Experten verwendet. Manchmal einfach nur als Synonym für "politischen Islam", andere Male eher synonym mit islamischem Fundamentalismus und Radikalismus. Beide Gleichsetzungen /2
sind problematisch. Ursprünglich beschrieb #Islamismus fast ausschließlich "politischen Islam". Hierunter vielen aber eine ganze Reihe sehr unterschiedlicher politischer Strömungen, Ideen und Einzelpersonen. Mit unterschiedlichen Haltungen zu Demokratie, Modernisierung etc. /3

So, who joined #IS but has been ordered to keep it quite (by al-Qurashî's audio)? The keeping it quite part IMO rules out groups with a monopoly on jihâdist violence in their area. #IS has never been shy to announce such acquisitions even when this meant international scrunity. /
Cases in point would be its provinces in Libya and the Phillipines whose territorial control was crushed by bombings of international coalitions. I don't think that this approach has changed when looking at Mozambique right now. 2/
The #ISCA province is very much on the offensive and has been noted as a security risk by international actors. The military intervention of a strong local or global force is only a question of time. 3/

After a very, very long time #IS #Khurasan uploaded video about its attacks mostly on #Taliban positions in #Nangarhar and #Kunar I can't say when those combat footages were recorded-last year or this one, but I will post them later in this tread
First segment-tirade against #Taliban : accusation of collaboration with #USA and #Kabul, corruption, appeasement to Shias (they used segment with Hazara commander from several months ago)
First segment #Khurasan raid on outpost I would say in #Nangarhar Close combat footage which reminds on some golden times of #IS media

NDS claimed killing #Khurasan chief judge Abdullah Orakzai. One Abdullah Oarkzai aka Aslam Farooqi was arrested back in April. Who is really killed who knows? Regarding #IS #Khurasan I would say that NDS knows little to nothing Image
Seems that everyone among #ISKP are either called Abdullah or Assadullah. And everyone are from Orakzai band ImageImageImage
According to local account NDS yesterday killed 2 people in Dawlatzi village, Chaparhar district #Nangarhar One on the pic was later identified as Abdullah Orakzai. Photo of another person I won't post because his face is mutilated Image

After #Taliban offensive against #Khurasan in the 2nd half of last year, #IS #Afghanistan branch restarted its activities in #Nangarhar #Herat and #Kabul (province itself or areas around it like #Parwan maybe #Baghlan)…
While article itself argues that TTP factions could join #Khurasan ranks (possible to some extent) I want to ask another question: Can some Jamiat militias join #IS umbrella? No one theorized about that in a light of Doha deal…
"Tajik, Uzbek and Russians also populate ISIS-K’s ranks"....Russians? Really? You must be better then that Mr. Lawrence 😆…

Thread recording every known #R9X Hellfire (aka #NinjaMissile & #FlyingGinsu) strike.

The AGM-114R-9X is an inert variant of the AGM-114 "Hellfire" developed by #Lockheed that is meant to reduce risk of civilian casualties while using pop-out blades to maintain lethality.
The #R9X has received much attention since a @WSJ article by @glubold & @wstrobel last year where it was said to have been used "about a half-dozen times" against high level terrorist targets in "#Libya #Syria #Iraq #Yemen & #Somalia"…
Its extreme precision, exotic nature, and increasingly visible usage by what is presumed to be #JSOC and #CIA according to a piece by @FranticGoat for @thewarzonewire have kept it in the spotlight though.…

Polish Internal Security Agency #ABW have detained on May 7 four 4 #Tajiks on charges of attempting to recruit Muslim converts to carry out militant attacks. The suspects were inspired by the #IslamicState terrorist organization but are not members of the group.
This is another terrorist plot in Europe with citizens of Tajikistan in recent days. On April 15 German authorities detained 5 Tajiks suspected of forming an IS cell plotting attacks in #Germany.
Two individuals in this Tajik cell in Germany were alleged to have traveled to Albania with plans to carry out a contract killing. Around two weeks later, authorities in Albania said they arrested a Tajik citizen sought by Germany for suspected membership in an IS cell.
