Turkey conducted a raid on ISIS in Jinderes, northwestern Syria, on April 28 that likely resulted in the death of an ISIS leader, but not the groupÔÇÖs ÔÇťcaliph.ÔÇŁ Read this week's Salafi-Jihadi Movement Update here:ÔÇŽ (1/4)
Turkish President Recep Tayyip #Erdogan claimed Turkey killed IS ÔÇť#caliphÔÇŁ Abu al Hussein al Husseini al Qurayshi during the raid. #US officials said they could not confirm the raid's target was the #IS "caliph." (2/4)
#Erdogan may seek to inflate his military successes in #Syria to improve his standing ahead of #TurkeyÔÇÖs presidential election on May 14. The Turkish president is currently losing according to election polls.

[THREAD] 1/ In 2022, the Islamic State claimed 2,028 attacks in 24 countries. It carried out large-scale operations in Syria, Nigeria and Afghanistan. Sharp decline in #IS operations in Iraq. Africa was the continent most afflicted, with a sharp increase in attacks at Christians.
2/ Detail about the methodology: I have analysed all the information provided by the Islamic State in the 52 issues of its weekly magazine al-NabaÔÇÖ (cf. the front page of the issue 369). For every single IS claimed attack, I have analysed the target(s)/weapon(s) used/geolocation.
3/To start with, interestingly, the number of Islamic StateÔÇÖs attacks has dropped consistently since the fall of Bagh├╗z (March 2019), last #IS stronghold in Syria. This is particularly striking in the case of #Syria and #Iraq, where the group is a mere shadow of what it once was.

I read AG Rantos' #SuperLeague Opinion (available atÔÇŽ) for you and here are my main takeaways ­čžÁ­čžÁ­čžÁ

#Sportslaw #EUlaw #BosmanDay #FIFA #UEFA
It opens with some drama, "the very existence of the organisational structure of the modern game" and "the the future of European football" are at play. (┬ž2)
The first really interesting part of the Opinion concerns the AG's assessment of the relevance of Article 165 TFEU and the European Sports Model in the case (┬ž┬ž27-42).

1. In recent months, weÔÇÖve been tracking chatter about the World Cup in #Qatar across #IS, #AQ, and Shi'a militant group (#SMG) networks online.
2. Interest has been fairly limited in #AQ & #SMG ecosystems but #IS|ers have been calling for attacks, with momentum for these calls spiking in recent days.

Graphs show incidence of posts with ÔÇťQatarÔÇŁ (yellow), ÔÇťWorld CupÔÇŁ (blue), and ÔÇťfootballÔÇŁ (red).

1: #SMG; 2: #AQ; 3: #IS
3. One #IS call-to-arms singles out teams / supporters of Coalition member states, above all #US and #France.

There have also been multiple assertions that attacks neednÔÇÖt happen only in #Qatar, the logic being that an attack anywhere during the WC will be maximally disruptive.

Nach den schwachsinnigen ├äu├čerungen des t├╝rkischen Innenministers zum "#Taksim-Anschlag" in #Istanbul, kann man vermuten, dass der t├╝rkische Geheimdienst MIT involviert ist.
Es deutet nichts auf die #PKK hin und erst recht nicht auf die #YPG.

Solch ein Anschlag entspricht nicht der Handschrift der PKK, es gab auch nie Hinweise auf einen solchen Anschlag und es wird abgestritten (normalerweise bekennt sich die #PKK zu jedem Anschlag). Ziele der PKK sind Milit├Ąr, Politik oder die Polizei. Niemals Zivilisten!

Die #YPG ist eine Volksverteidigungseinheit in Nordsyrien und k├Ąmpft dort gegen den #IS und andere Dschihadisten. Sie operieren nicht in der #T├╝rkei und haben noch nie die T├╝rkei angegriffen. Sie ver├╝ben keine Terroranschl├Ąge und sind keine Terrororganisation.

ISIS's Amaq news agency has released video said to show #Shiraz attacker giving pledge of allegiance to the "caliph".
Pledge is prompted line-by-line by someone offscreen

2/Pretty much impossible to confirm if this is the same person seen in CCTV footage of the Shiraz attack Image

Jameza/Jameesha #Mubin was 29y.o. man from the area #Ukkadam.

Reports say that he was radicalised by the #IS philosophy and was planning an #EasterBombing style operation in #Coimbatore and was planning to kick start the same from Konniyamman temple or Kotta Eswaran temple.
It is also being said that he was already on the watchlist of the #Tamilnadu police as he had tried to set off an explosion few years ago.

He is also set to have close contacts with Mohammed Azharuddin, now in #Kerala jail for his involvement with #ISIS.
It is important to know that Azharuddin had close contacts with #ZahranHashim, the chief mastermind of the #EasterBombings in #Srilanka in 2019.

Mubin was NOT driving a gas vehicle but a petrol vehicle and the early triggering of the cylinder could have been an accident.

Did the #IS negotiate with the #USA in 2006?
Shortly after the establishment of the Islamic State in Iraq, a speech by its leader Hamid al-Zawi (Abu Umar al-Baghdadi) entitled "Truth Has Come and Falsehood Has Perished" was published on December 23, 2006. Image
In his speech, he rejected any negotiation with the U.S. However, he said "we announce to you today our demands so accept them obedient and humiliated before before you regret it.. We order you to withdraw immediately.. without any heavy equipment or weapons.."

1. Time for a status update on #IS.

WeÔÇÖve been collecting and analysing #IS comms and chatter continuously for the last few years.

This is what the short- (50-day) and long-term (200-day) rolling averages look like for #IS attacks as of 10 October 2022.
2. In #Syria, after a three-fold decline across 2020/21, #ISÔÇÖs reported activities have been hovering at roughly the same level since last summer.

Note that there was a fleeting surge after the #Ghwayran prison-break, but nothing sustained.

See tweet #12 for caveat.
3. In #Iraq, #ISÔÇÖs network is seemingly in a similar place.

These days, less than half as many attacks are being reported on average compared with this time in 2020 and 2021.

See tweet #12 for caveat.

Some "milestones" Jawlani achieved after few months to mub─ühal─ü (scholars say it's calculated within an year)

Al-Maqdisi - took back his support after Jawlani fought Jund al-Aqsa

(according to hts shar'i , mud'hir alweis , Maqdisi made takfir of hts)
Al-Atawi: Departs from Jawlani, exposes his taking 1 million dollars from Saudi "mouth piece" (As Maqdisi calls him) Sheikh Al-'Ar'ur. Gives several statements against Jawlani and gets caught in Saudi border (or surrenders)
Saleh Al-Hamawi: founder member and shar'i, defects and is full time critic against Jawlani front, supporting Ahrar.

Mufti of JN, al-Ureidi: Departs from it after Jawlani broke away from AQ, nd joins founder member of JN, Abu Juleibib along with (allegedly) 500 members.

1. In his latest statement, #IS spokesman Abu ÔÇśUmar al-Muhajir spoke at length about #ISÔÇÖs targeting of Christian communities in #Africa.

This continent-wide campaign is likely to intensify across #Mozambique, #DRC, and #Nigeria in the next few months, peaking in December.
2. As part of this, Muhajir spoke about recent developments in #Mozambique.

September has seen #ISÔÇÖs cells penetrating further south there than ever before, razing "Christian villages" to the ground as they go.

L: #IS-related violence in 2021
R: #IS-related violence in 2022
3. At the beginning of this month, about 20 #IS fighters from #CaboDelgado crossed the #Lurio river and entered #Nampula province.

Up until that point, #Nampula state had seen just one attack claimed by #IS. As of today, that number is at eight and counting.

A thread about the tactical difference with local forces between #IS and #AQ.
The big difference between the Islamic State and Al-Qaeda in dealing with local armed groups that cooperate with them is that #IS demands a merger under its complete control. #AQ, on the other hand, is satisfied with military cooperation without any control over these groups.
Al-Qaeda hopes to gain long-term loyalty by cooperating with these armed groups, even though they know that these groups do not pursue jihadist goals. The same tactics were used by jihadists in the past decades in countries like #Algeria, #Egypt or #Libya.

Thread: 17 August 2022: Day 175 of #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine
Latest @DefenceHQ update: notes the explosions on 16 August in Dzhankoi, home to one of two "most important Russian airfields in #Crimea" and "a key road and rail junction" supplying Russian forces in southern #Ukraine. "The cause ... is not yet clear" ­čśÂ
#Russia's state media is upset at the "repressions" of Donald Trump. In a strange segment, Vladimir Solovyov even wondered if "Teflon Don" might not be "[declared] a Russian spy" and if so would #Russia do a prisoner exchange "to bring Trump to Russia?".ÔÇŽ

1. The attack on #Kabul Cricket Stadium is as yet unclaimed, but itÔÇÖs worth noting that, as of today, #ISKP has been inactive for 13 days in a row.

ThatÔÇÖs the longest period since September 2021, when it was gearing up to launch the most intensive campaign in its recent history.
2. This summerÔÇÖs slump has seen #ISKP become somewhat sidelined as an issue in #Afghanistan.

This graph shows mentions of the keyword ÔÇťDaeshÔÇŁ on #Taliban social media since mid-2020.

Note how things peaked in Q4 2021 when #ISKP was at its most virulent.
3. WeÔÇÖve also seen a slump in official #ISKP media releases (as in, those published through #ISÔÇÖs Central Media Diwan).

Importantly, this lull hasnÔÇÖt been reflected in the activities of #ISKPÔÇÖs less globally prominent Pashtu and Dari media offices.
