Good day……this will be the last briefing until Friday…..enjoy your T’giving.
Item 1–ISIS has put a bounty on spies and informants……
ISIS announced it is offering $5,000 to anyone who can capture an informant or provide information leading to such a capture. Fliers announcing the deal have been reported around ISIS territory in Syria.
While they will no doubt eagerly take any spies for foreign powers, the effort seems in particular to find the spotters on the ground helping US warplanes pick out targets to bomb.
Item 2–ISIS in the process of capturing another Iraqi town…….
Islamic State fighters on Tuesday penetrated to the core of Ramadi, the provincial capital of Iraq’s largest province, prompting local security officials to warn that the city was on the verge of falling to the extremists. Such a gain would be the Islamic State’s most significant victory in months.
Officials said that extremist fighters were only tens of yards away from entering the main government compound.
Islamic State insurgents battled Iraqi forces in the center of Baiji on Tuesday, a week after the army broke their prolonged siege of the country’s largest oil refinery just outside the town, an army officer and residents said.Islamic State (IS) fighters were present in four of Baiji’s 12 neighborhoods, as well as areas on the perimeter of the sprawling refinery complex. But the army controlled its southern approaches, preventing insurgents from surrounding it, according to a Baiji resident who toured the area.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria has released another propaganda video showing militants training dozens of children from Kazakhstan to use assault rifles. The new video was produced by ISIS’ main media branch Al Hayat Media Centre.
The new footage opens with a slow motion scene of two lines of armed fighters running in the desert. In between the lines, a man can be seen holding the black flag of ISIS while riding a black horse. The video voiceover claims fighters have joined ISIS from Kazakhstan to stop “crusader aggression.” One of the fighters said in the video that they are preparing in the training camp, according to the Daily Mail.
Children ages 4 to 20 years old can be seen wearing the same grey uniforms as the adult fighters. The video showed the child warriors in action in a series of drills supervised by a bearded adult wearing a black tunic. The voice in the video claimed the children will be ready to join ISIS soon.
Another crime against humanity?
Sorry but a short briefing….not much coming out of the Middle East as long as Ferguson and immigration has the country’s attention…..
