Operation Gladio And The False Flag Muslim Terror Hoax

In CIA, False Flag, Iran, Iraq, News on June 10, 2017 at 2:07 PM

via TheTruthSeeker

* “Most terrorists are false flag terrorists, or are created by our security services.” Robert Steele – Former CIA Clandestine Services Officer

* “It is from us that the all engulfing terror proceeds” – Protocols of Zion, 9-4

* “You had to attack civilians, the innocent people, unknown people far removed from any political game. The reason was quite simple: To force the public to turn to the state for greater security”. Gladio Operative Vincenzo Vinciguerra 2001

In his 2005 book, “NATO’s Secret Armies:Operation Gladio and Terrorism in Western Europe,” Daniel Ganser accused the US and their NATO allies of using Gladio, a decades long campaign of false flag terror Attacks directed by Western Intelligence agencies that were responsible for the murder of hundreds of innocent civilians. They attacked train stations, cafes, supermarkets and offices. According to captured Gladio agent Vincenzo Vinciguerra, units in Italy, in cooperation with the CIA and NATO, were responsible for murderous terrorist attacks against the Italian people. Gladio was set up after WWII as a clandestine group of operatives that were to be activated in the event of a Soviet invasion of Europe. Their plan quickly evolved into a program of political repression and manipulation directed by NATO and the CIA. What could go wrong? For decades Gladio carried out widespread terrorist attacks, assassinations and electoral subversion in democratic states such as Italy, France and West Germany, but were portrayed to the public as Communist or Left Wing terror attacks. Thanks to corrupt media disinformation and lies, the facts of this operation have been kept hidden from the public.

Gladio operatives were involved in a silent Coup d’etat in 1969, and multiple bombings in the1960’s, 70’s and 80’s in Italy alone. The Italian Government released a 300 page report on Gladio Operations in 2000. The report, unsurprisingly said that, the massacres, bombings and military operations were planned and executed by men within the Italian Government and the American CIA. In 1980, Italy experienced its worst ever terror attack at a train station in Bologna. 85 died in the attack and over 200 were wounded. The investigation led police to Vincent Vinciguerra.

Vinciguerra, the Joe Valachi of the Gladio conspiracy, under questioning, explained that he was protected from arrest and allowed to escape after these operations. This would explain why so few arrests were made in these attacks over such a long period of criminal activity. He also explained that the terror attacks since the 60’s were state sponsored and blamed on Communists or left wing groups like the Red Brigade.

Today the blame for their false flag terror is being blamed on the people who happen to live on land that Israel desperately wants and sits on top of a whole bunch of sweet crude Oil. Muslim terrorists are now our controllers bogeyman of choice. It appears Gladio has become an element of the “War on Terror.” Former President of Italy, Francesco Cossiga, the man who revealed the existence of Gladio, told Italy’s most respected newspaper that the 911 attacks were run by the CIA and the Mossad. Cossiga said this was common knowledge amongst global intelligence agencies. A group of Mossad Agents were arrested on 911. Police were called about some Middle Eastern men filming the burning towers and celebrating. Dubbed the “Dancing Israelis” by the New York Times. They worked for Urban Moving Systems, an Israeli owned company, who’s owner fled to Israel shortly after the attack. The company was likely a Mossad front. They later appeared on Israeli TV and admitted that they had been sent there to document the event. How did they know?

The Manchester attack appears to be another false flag terror attack. As usual the patsy being blamed had a long relationship with British Intelligence. Right on cue ISIS claimed responsibility for both recent attacks in England. How convenient. Does anyone really believe this nonsense? There is already a mountain of evidence that ISIS is funded and controlled by the CIA and the Israeli Mossad. The plan is to take out Assad and Balkanize Syria the same way they are tearing apart Libya and Iraq. What we have been seeing since the the first bombing at the Twin Tower Complex in 1993 is a continuation of Operation Gladio. The first bombing in the North Tower, like most of the so called Muslim attacks, would not have gotten off the ground without a lot of help from the FBI and the CIA. The Media doesn’t give them the credit they deserve. I guess our controllers don’t think it would be prudent for the rubes to find out that their Intelligence services were recruiting, training and providing explosives to terrorists.

Former Marine Intelligence Officer, CIA Clandestine Officer and whistleblower, Robert David Steele, recently stated that, “Every single terror attack in the US was a false flag attack”. There is evidence of prior knowledge and government involvement in both Trade Tower attacks and the Oklahoma City Bombing. Reporters on the scene in Oklahoma City that day reported, the OKC Bomb Squad were finding unexploded bombs inside the building. General Ben Partin, a Bomb expert, said that the explosions did not come from a truck bomb filled with fertilizer, but plastic explosives placed inside the building. The official story of the fertilizer bomb nonsense will be written in our history books, even though General Partin laid that lie to rest the day after the bombing.

Shortly after the the Orlando shooting, it was revealed that shooter, Omar Mateen worked for a Homeland Security Contractor. Edward Griffin reported that not long after Orlando, a man named James Howell turned himself in to the Santa Monica Police. He told police that he had trained to take part in a coordinated CIA plan to attack homosexual events in LA and Orlando. He explained that he had gone through CIA training with Omar Mateen and was sent to California to participate in disrupting a Gay Pride Parade in LA. Their handler had told them they would be protected. When he heard Mateen hadn’t gotten away and had been killed by police, he panicked. In his article, Griffin says Howell described his CIA recruitment and training and concludes, “this case could be the smoking gun for all Federal Government false flag operations.”

It was disclosed after the Boston Bombing that the Tsarnaev Brothers were being handled by the Boston FBI. They also have an uncle, who not only has worked for the CIA, but was married to Senior CIA official Graham Fuller’s daughter. The Tsarnaev Brothers were probably set up to be patsy’s. They were likely told to be at the Marathon finish line by their FBI handler, to take part in the bomb drill that was taking place at the race site that day.

The 911 terrorists weren’t radical Muslims. They smoked, drank, snorted Coke, and dated strippers, They gambled on a boat owned by Republican super lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Before Abramoff went to prison he claimed to have a hundred Congressmen in his pocket. Why were they on Abramoff’s gambling boat shortly before 911? They took flying lessons at known CIA run airports and US Air Force Bases, and were protected at every turn by US Intelligence agents.

Few travellers remember that we are forced to take our shoes off at airports because of “Shoe Bomber Richard Reid. Even fewer are aware of Reid’s connection to British Intelligence through his radical Imam, Abu Qatada. Qatada, who has a 20 year year relationship with British Intelligence, was a big influence on terrorist Zacaria Moussaoui as well. Underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab was originally refused entry to American Airlines flight 63. He later was allowed to board the flight when American Intelligence officials interceded.

We live in an era of mass mind control and a blossoming police state. Cops stand down, while George Soros paid thugs and ignorant, college radical, wannabees rampage across university campuses. Cops sit and watch these violent masked rioters smash windows out at universities, set cars on fire and take over campus buildings without fear of recrimination. Meanwhile, police continue to beat, tase and arrest citizens for legally filming them. Police are stealing millions from honest citizens through unconstitutional civilian asset forfeiture programs. Small crimes become more of a priority for the police state as violent crime is reduced. Violent crime and gun crimes have been dropping for years but cops don’t want their budgets cut. What’s a police force to do? Enter Jeff Sessions and Donald Trump. They are law and order guy’s. This is code for, “I take a lot of dirty money from the private prison industry”. This might explain his push for more mandatory sentencing and a renewed war on Marijuana. Thanks Jeff. Your controllers in the private prison industry are, no doubt, toasting your treachery.

We will never get the truth from the media. The sickening government approved mouthpieces will not put the pieces together for you. You are on our own to figure it out. These false flag attacks will continue and become more frequent. We can expect an Increased police presence, more attacks on free speech, more hate laws and more harassment from the TSA when we travel. We can also expect censorship of websites, continued youtube censorship and the banning of books that go against this phony government narrative. The Military Industrial Complex faced the same dilemma as the police, but their manufactured “War on Terror” fixed that.

 

Here’s why Nazionists Launched Multiple False Flag Operations this Year

In NATO, News, Russia, USA, White House on December 19, 2015 at 8:49 AM
San Bernardino shooting

We have been annoyed at the successive barrages of shooting drama in parallel with actual militarized police exercises showcasing lone nuts, Islamist characters, punctuated by mainstream media nutheads’ idiotic tampering of the “crime scene.”

Below, is the map of mass shootings for this year alone.

Why are they continuously doing these unpalatable actions?

We can answer this basic question by putting ourselves into their shoes.

What do we do if our sources of funds, e.g. drugs trafficking, oil smuggling, national extortions, child and women trafficking, are being exposed, threatened and/or effectively being put out of business?

What do we do with our jobless militants? Should we just cry in one corner and do nothing?

Of course not. We should unleash our jobless militants to run wild in the streets of America and Europe. We need to show everyone who is the boss… still.

Putin is a spoiler, he needs to be dealt with accordingly.

Unfortunately for them, Vlad is already bringing the war into their own backyard.

You Want War? Russia is Ready for War

Pepe Escobar

Russia deploys S-400 air defence missile system in Syria

The Pentagon carries the same message embedded in newspeak: the Full Spectrum Dominance doctrine.

Syria is leading all these assumptions to collapse like a house of cards. So no wonder in a Beltway under no visible chain of command – the Obama administration barely qualifies as lame duck – angst is the norm.

The Pentagon is now engaged in a Vietnam-style escalation of boots on the ground across “Syraq”. 50 commandos are already in northern Syria “advising” the YPG Syrian Kurds as well as a few “moderate” Sunnis. Translation: telling them what Washington wants them to do. The official White House spin is that these commandos “support local forces” (Obama’s words) in cutting off supply lines leading to the fake “Caliphate” capital, Raqqa.

Another 200 Special Forces sent to Iraq will soon follow, allegedly to “engage in direct combat” against the leadership of ISIS/ISIL/Daesh, which is now ensconced in Mosul.

These developments, billed as “efforts” to “partially re-engage in Iraq and Syria” are leading US Think Tankland to pen hilarious reports in search of “the perfect balance between wide-scale invasion and complete disengagement” – when everyone knows Washington will never disengage from the Middle East’s strategic oil wealth.

All these American boots on the ground in theory should be coordinating, soon, with a new, spectacularly surrealist 34-country “Islamic” coalition (Iran was not invited), set up to fight ISIS/ISIL/Daesh by no less than the ideological matrix of all strands of Salafi-jihadism: Wahhabi Saudi Arabia.

Syria is now Coalition Central. There are at least four; the “4+1” (Russia, Syria, Iran, Iraq plus Hezbollah), which is actually fighting Daesh; the US-led coalition, a sort of mini NATO-GCC combo, but with the GCC doing nothing; the Russia-France direct military collaboration; and the new Saudi-led “Islamic” charade. They are pitted against an astonishing number of Salafi-jhadi coalitions and alliances of convenience that last from a few months to a few hours.

And then there’s Turkey, which under Sultan Erdogan plays a vicious double game.

Sarajevo All Over Again?

“Tense” does not even begin to describe the current Russia-Turkey geopolitical tension, which shows no sign of abating. The Empire of Chaos lavishly profits from it as a privileged spectator; as long as the tension lasts, prospects of Eurasia integration are hampered.

Russian intel has certainly played all possible scenarios involving a  NATO Turkish army on the Turkish-Syrian border as well as the possibility of Ankara closing the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles for the Russian “Syria Express”. Erdogan may not be foolish enough to offer Russia yet another casus belli. But Moscow is taking no chances.

Russia has placed ships and submarines capable of launching nuclear missiles in case Turkey under the cover of NATO decides to strike out against the Russian position. President Putin has been clear; Russia will use nuclear weapons if necessary if conventional forces are threatened.

If Ankara opts for a suicide mission of knocking out yet another Su-24, or Su-34, Russia will simply clear the airspace all across the border via the S-400s. If Ankara under the cover of NATO responds by launching the Turkish Army on Russian positions, Russia will use nuclear missiles, drawing NATO into war not only in Syria but potentially also in Europe. And this would include using nuclear missiles to keep Russian strategic use of the Bosphorus open.

That’s how we can draw a parallel of Syria today as the equivalent of Sarajevo 1914.

Since mid-2014 the Pentagon has run all manner of war games – as  many as 16 times, under different scenarios – pitting NATO against Russia. All scenarios were favorable to NATO. All simulations yielded the same victor: Russia.

And that’s why Erdogan’s erratic behavior actually terrifies quite a few real players from Washington to Brussels.

Let Me Take You on a Missile Cruise

The Pentagon is very much aware of the tremendous heavy metal Russia may unleash if provoked to the limit by someone like Erdogan. Let’s roll out an abridged list.

Russia can use the mighty SS-18 – which NATO codenames “Satan”; each “Satan” carries 10 warheads, with a yield of 750 to 1000 kilotons each, enough to destroy an area the size of New York state.

The Topol M ICBM is the world’s fastest missile at 21 Mach (16,000 miles an hour); against it, there’s no defense. Launched from Moscow, it hits New York City in 18 minutes, and L.A. in 22.8 minutes.

Russian submarines – as well as Chinese submarines – are able to launch offshore the US, striking coastal targets within a minute. Chinese submarines have surfaced next to US aircraft carriers undetected, and Russian submarines can do the same.

The S-500 anti-missile system is capable of sealing Russia off from ICBMs and cruise missiles. (Moscow will only admit on the record that the S-500s will be rolled out in 2016; but the fact the S-400s will soon be delivered to China implies the S-500s may be already   operational.)

The S-500 makes the Patriot missile look like a V-2 from WWII.

Here, a former adviser to the US Chief of Naval Operations essentially goes on the record saying the whole US missile defense apparatus is worthless.

Russia has a supersonic bomber fleet of Tupolev Tu-160s; they can take off from airbases deep in the heart of Russia, fly over the North Pole, launch nuclear-tipped cruise missiles from safe distances over the Atlantic, and return home to watch the whole thing on TV.

Russia can cripple virtually every forward NATO base with tactical – or battlefield – small-yield nuclear weapons. It’s not by accident that Russia over the past few months tested NATO response times in multiple occasions.

The Iskander missile travels at seven times the speed of sound with a range of 400 km. It’s deadly to airfields, logistics points and other stationary infrastructure along a broad war theatre, for instance in southern Turkey.

NATO would need to knock out all these Iskanders. But then they would need to face the S-400s – or, worse, S-500s — which Russia can layer in defense zones in nearly every conceivable theater of war. Positioning the S-400s in Kaliningrad, for instance, would cripple all NATO air operations deep inside Europe.

And presiding over military decisions, Russia privileges the use of Reflexive Control (RC). This is a tactic that aims to convey selected information to the enemy that forces him into making self-defeating decisions; a sort of virus influencing and controlling his decision-making process. Russia uses RC tactically, strategically and geopolitically. A young Vladimir Putin learned all there is to know about RC at the 401st KGB School and further on in his career as a KGB/FSB officer.

All right, Erdogan and NATO; do you still wanna go to war?

Launching multiple false flag operations is the only option they have left. It’s the only thing they thought could justify gun control that will mitigate the growing restiveness inside America and the EU.

Gun shows

Even if the measure is backfiring as more and more people are buying guns instead, the false flag operations are not abating just yet. Maybe, they are stakeholders in gun manufacturing companies, too.

Both cases suggest, there will be more of the same next year and it will continue indefinitely until real patriots take decisive action.

One of the significant sources of funds for the fascist Nazionist Jesuit Khazarian Mafia is the healthcare industry which registered a whopping $3.09 trillion in 2014, and is projected to soar to $3.57 trillion in 2017, in the US alone.

Turkey Invades Iraq For The City of London Bankers

In Archive, Iraq, News, NWO, Syria, Turkey, World Bank on December 12, 2015 at 4:37 AM

B63 Gunung Sibayak views, BeristagiTurkey’s alarming invasion of northern Iraq represents a last-ditch desperate attempt by the City of London Illuminati banksters to wrest control of oil-rich Kurdistan from Baghdad’s lately-nationalist-minded government.

It’s no secret that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is collaborating with his coalition partner Gray Wolves fascists in their ISIS oil smuggling and, no doubt, their Afghan heroin trafficking as well. It is also no secret that Erdogan has been a willing tool of the global oligarchy via his increasingly belligerent military posturing.

(Excerpted from Chapter 10: Iran/Iraq War: Mutual Assured Destruction: Big Oil & Their Bankers…)

During the Iran/Iraq War it was the Israelis who worked hand-in-hand with the US to destroy both nations.  While supplying CIA employee Mustafa Barzani’s Kurds in their attacks on Iraq, the Israelis duplicitously provided missile targeting to Saddam Hussein for his attacks on Iranian cities via US spy satellites.  Barzani died in 1979, but his equally corrupt and easily-bought son Masoud Barzani has been President of Iraqi Kurdistan since 2005.

In 1988 Mossad launched Operation Brush Fire, a psychological warfare campaign designed to draw the US military further into the Middle East conflagration.  Their ultimate goal was to have the US destroy Iraq’s powerful military, while leaving their “perfect villain” Saddam in power.

The campaign was launched when Israeli commandos bombed an Iraqi weapons plant at Al-Iskandariah in at attempt to make “Iraqi weapons of mass destruction” a global household phrase.  Mossad set up a London Observer freelance journalist named Farzad Bazroft to take the story international.  Bazroft had been investigating the death of Shah-loyalist tuned Mossad arms dealer Cyrus Hashemi and had gotten too close to the truth, which was that Mossad had eliminated Hashemi.  Knowing Bazroft would be seen as a foreign spy by Baghdad after the Mossad terrorism at the weapons plant, they sent him into Iraq.  Saddam took the bait and Bazroft was hung as a spy creating an even bigger international incident.  To speed things along, Mossad leaked secret documents on Iraqi weapons programs to ABC News.

US and Israeli arms merchants made a killing during the war.  The US refused to supply spare parts to either side, so when a weapons system broke Iran or Iraq would be expected to buy a whole new system.  This policy bolstered the bottom lines of US defense contractors and assured that battlefield weapons malfunctions could not be fixed on the spot, thus negating the momentum which the side on the offensive had attained. This helped keep the war in a constant state of stalemate.

Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon used the conflict as an opportunity to bomb Baghdad’s nuclear facilities in 1981.  In 1982 Sharon declared that Israel was siding with Iran, but his exact words were more revealing.  Sharon declared at a conference in Paris that, “Israel has a vital interest in the continuing war in the Persian Gulf and in Iran’s victory.”  In 1986 retired Mossad Chief General Aharon Yariv declared the US and Israeli position more succinctly when he stated bluntly, “It would be good if the Iran/Iraq War ended in a tie, but it would be better if it continued”.

Fast forward to 2015 and it seems the Mossad got its way. The Turks will try to lop off Kurdistan and its massive Kirkuk oilfield for Exxon Mobil. ISIS will handle the arms, drugs and oil traffic. Raytheon, Lockheed Martin and BAE will mop up on GCC, Turk & Israeli military contracts. And the Four Horsemen of oil will sell oil to all sides.

You see, for the City of London inbreds, permanent war is quite a successful business model.

Putin, “NO Regime Change in Syria”: US Ready to Destroy Another Nation

In News, Russia, Syria on September 19, 2015 at 9:12 AM

The post-Incirlik period looks like it could produce an entirely different outcome due to the fact that the US will be able to deploy its drones and warplanes from a Turkish airbase (Incirlik) that’s just 15 minutes flying-time from Syria.

That will boost the number of sorties the USAF can able to carry out while increasing the effectiveness of its jihadi forces on the ground which will conduct their operations under the protection of US air cover. This will greatly improve their chances for success.

The New York Times calls the Incirlik deal a “game-changer” which is an understatement. By allowing US F-16s to patrol the skies over Syria, Washington will impose a de facto no-fly zone over the country severely limiting Assad’s ability to battle the US-backed militias that have seized large swaths of the countryside and are now descending on Damascus.

And while the war cannot be won by airpower alone, this new tactical reality tilts the playing field in favor the jihadis. In other words, the Incirlik agreement changes everything.

putin-assad_2577178b

The Obama administration now believes that regime change is within its reach. Yes, they know it will require some back-up from US Special Forces and Turkish combat troops, but it’s all doable.  This is why Obama has shrugged off Russia’s plan for a transitional government or for forming a coalition to defeat ISIS.

The US doesn’t have to compromise on these matters because, after all, it has a strategically-located airbase from which it can protect its proxy-army, bomb cross-border targets, and control the skies over Syria.

All Obama needs to do is intensify the war effort, put a little more pressure on Assad, and wait for the regime to collapse. This is why we should expect a dramatic escalation as we begin Phase 2 of the conflict.

Russian President Vladimir Putin knows this, which is why he’s sending more weapons, supplies and advisors to Syria. He’s signaling to Washington that he knows what they’re up to and that he’ll respond if they carry things too far.

In an interview with Russia’s state Channel 1, Putin said, “We have our ideas about what we will do and how we will do it in case the situation develops toward the use of force or otherwise. We have our plans.”

The administration is very nervous about Putin’s plans which is why they keep probing to see if they can figure out what he has up his sleeve. Just days ago,  Secretary of State John Kerry phoned his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov to express his concerns about “an imminent enhanced Russian military buildup” in Syria.

The call was a clumsy attempt to trick Lavrov into volunteering information that might shed light on what Moscow intends to do if Washington goes ahead with its regime change strategy.  But Russia’s foreign minister didn’t take the bait. He stuck to his script and didn’t tell Kerry anything he didn’t already know.

But the fact is, Putin is not going to allow Assad to be removed by force. It’s that simple. Obama and his advisors suspect this, but they are not 100 percent certain so they keep looking for confirmation one way or the other.

But Putin is not going to provide a clear answer because he doesn’t want to tip his hand or appear confrontational. But that doesn’t mean he’s not resolute. He is, and Washington knows it. In effect, Putin has drawn a line in the sand and told the US that if they cross that line, there’s going to [be a] trouble.

So it’s up to Obama really. He can either seek a peaceful solution along the lines that Moscow has recommended or push for regime change and risk a confrontation with Russia. Those are the two choices.

Unfortunately, Washington doesn’t have an “off” switch anymore, so changing policy is really not in the cards. Instead, the US war machine will continue to lumber ahead erratically until it hits an impasse and sputters to a halt.

Once again, the immovable object will prevail over the unstoppable force (as it did in Ukraine), albeit at great cost to the battered people of Syria, their nation and the entire region.

Keep in mind, that the imperial plan for Syria is subtler than many people realize. As the Brookings Institute’s Michael E. O’Hanlon states in his piece titled “Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war”:

“The plan… would not explicitly seek to overthrow him (Assad), so much as deny him control of territory that he might still aspire to govern again. The autonomous zones would be liberated with the clear understanding that there was no going back to rule by Assad or a successor. In any case, Assad would not be a military target under this concept, but areas he currently controls… would be. And if Assad delayed too long in accepting a deal for exile, he could inevitably face direct dangers to his rule and even his person.” (“Deconstructing Syria: A new strategy for America’s most hopeless war”, Michael E. O’Hanlon, Brookings Institute)

This is the basic plan: To seize major cities and large parts of the countryside,  disrupt supply-lines and destroy vital civilian infrastructure, and to progressively undermine Assad’s ability to govern the country.

The ultimate goal is to break the state into a million disconnected enclaves ruled by armed mercenaries, al Qaida-linked affiliates, and local warlords. This is Washington’s diabolical plan for Syria.

It is strikingly similar to the Zionist plan to “effect the division of the whole area into small states by the dissolution of all existing Arab states.” (“The Zionist Plan for the Middle East”, Israel Shahak) In fact, it is virtually identical.

It’s clear that Obama is emboldened by the Incirlik deal and believes that, with Turkey’s help, he can achieve US imperial ambitions in Syria. But it’s not going to happen.  Russia, Iran and Hezbollah are prepared to defend their ally Assad and stop Washington dead-in-its-tracks.

Obama will have succeeded in destroying another sovereign nation and scattering its people across the Middle East and Europe. But the US mission will fall short of its original objectives. There will be no regime change in Syria. Putin, Nasrallah and Khamenei will make sure of it.

Jihad vs Jihad: Islamic State & Syrian Rebel Group Army of Islam Release Videos Executing Each Other’s Fighters

In Archive, Army of Islam, Islamic State, Syria, Terrorism on July 1, 2015 at 6:29 AM

is-06-25-2015

06/25/2015

Islamic State in Syria has released a video showing the brutal beheading 12 men accused of fighting for the terrorist group’s Al Qaeda and Army of Islam (Jaysh al-Islam) rivals. The video – titled ‘Repent Before We Apprehend You’, was released by the lesser known Damascus branch of IS. Filmed close to Syrian capital and regime stronghold Damascus, the footage shows the terrified men being interviewed and paraded in front of the camera before their execution. After ‘confessing’ to the crime of opposing Islamic State and failing to declare allegiance to the terrorist group’s leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the men are led out into a desert clearing where they are forced to their knees and each man executed by a different masked member of the IS.

Hollywood-style graphics begin the clip and show the 12 victims hunched over as they are dragged through a remote stretch of desert to the site where they will be murdered. The men walk uncomfortably due to the way their arms are bound, each forced to wear bright orange jumpsuits, and led by heavily armed men wearing full battle fatigues but with their faces exposed. The victims are then handed over to executioners, who cover their faces.

The footage momentarily rewinds and fades into a montage of Al Qaeda and Army of Islam fighters battling Islamic State, a reminder that the three jihadi groups remain fierce rivals despite having a common enemy in Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

Over the next few segments, the 12 prisoners are interviewed about the so-called crimes and are forced to confess that they wish they had joined Islamic State before it was too late. The overall theme of the video is along the same lines, and sends a clear signal to other rebel groups fighting in Syria that they must declare allegiance to IS ‘before being overcome’.

While speaking directly into the camera, the men appear clean-shaven – a rarity for jihadis and something likely to have been intended to humiliate the men before they are killed. Seconds later the clip cuts back to the victims wearing orange jumpsuits being led to their deaths.

After being marched to the execution site, the armed jihadis take a step back and another group – all of them masked and a wearing different style of combat gear – step forward to carry out the beheadings.

One fighter whose face is slightly more exposed than the others speaks in Arabic and issues another warning that other jihadi groups must accept Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as their leader or otherwise face certain death.

Over the following three minutes, the video follows the same format as other Islamic State murder videos released over the past year. Once the lead executioner finishes speaking, the militants begin to execute the victims, pushing their fingers into the men’s eyes while cutting their throats with small knives. The men wince in agony before dying, at which point the camera cuts to the altogether too familiar site of the victims’ heads being placed on their backs as a final act of humiliation.

A terrorist group battling Islamic State in Syria has turned the tables on its enemies by capturing and slaughtering 18 IS soldiers on camera. Dressed in orange jumpsuits – attire usually worn by Islamic State’s victims – Army of Islam (Jaysh al-Islam) soldiers lead the shackled jihadis to their deaths. Islamic State’s captured soldiers are forced to kneel as a commander announces: ‘Allah did not make a disease without appointing a remedy to it.’ The jihadis – dressed entirely in black – are then given something to drink before each of their faces are clearly shown in the 19 minute-long video. They are then shot in the back of the head at point blank range with shotguns.

Before the Islamic State fighters are killed, an Army of Islam militant says: ‘The most serious calamity for our jihad today is a group of people who grow at a time of division among Muslims. This group claimed to be the mother state and made Takfir [accused of apostasy] on other Muslims, shed their blood and looted their properties and dignities. They worsened… the ordeal of Muslims by corrupting their religion and livelihood and killing the jihadi leaders who did their best to help our stricken nation. They wreaked havoc on our people in liberated areas and cut the supply route of jihadis. They left… Tehran intact and instead they attacked our mosques. This is the penalty for what they have committed. We also call on their fellows to repent.’

Also in the video, Army of Islam claims that through investigation and confessions, they have allegedly uncovered collaboration between senior Islamic State commanders and high-ranking officers of Syrian intelligence in Damascus, regarding destroying rebel factions in Eastern Ghouta and the government ceding the area to IS to establish an emirate there. Bear in mind that this is coming from Islamic State prisoners under duress, and from Army of Islam, who’s goal is to overthrow Syrian president Bashar al-Assad. So this information, though newsworthy, should be met with skepticism.

Led by Zahran Alloush, Army of Islam reportedly commands as many as 25,000 fighters. It was created in 2011 when Saudi Arabia allegedly engineered the merger of over 50 rebel factions after growing alarmed at the rise of al-Qaeda and Islamic State in Syria. Saudi Arabia has reportedly sent millions of dollars to arm and train their fighters, who operate in the war-ravaged Syrian city of Damascus, in their ongoing battle against President Bashar al-Assad. In April this year, the group released a striking video showing off 1,700 troops, a fleet of armoured tanks and special forces soldiers in an impressive military parade.
