Eyes on Jihadism. Monitoring Jihadist Propaganda #26
From 25 to 31 March
A weekly newsletter that collects the main propaganda of Jihadist organizations and groups, from 25 to 31 March in one publication.
Propaganda will be divided into individual organizations:
In the case of al-Qaeda (AQ) and the Islamic State (IS), central leadership and official branches and provinces will be included.
In the case of Hay'at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS), the propaganda of HTS, those of the Liwa/Brigades belonging to its circle, and those relating to the Syrian Salvation Government (SSG) governing the areas under HTS control will be published.
Later, a section will be devoted to groups that are integrated into the Liwa of HTS but publish independent propaganda.
This will be followed by groups aligned with HTS (operationally and militarily, they coordinate with the “al-Fateh al-Mubin Operations Room” of HTS or they respect the policies of HTS), but not integrated with it.
Then there will be the independent groups, i.e. those that even though they have alliances and close relations with other jihadist groups, have independent operations and propaganda.
Finally, there will be the Jihadist tactical groups.
