Eyes on Jihadism. Monitoring Jihadist Propaganda #33
From 19 to 31 May
A weekly newsletter that collects the main propaganda of Jihadist organizations and groups, from 19 to 31 May 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.
This issue features all the main propaganda material from:
(AQAP, JNIM, Hurras al-Din, AQIS, Al-Shabaab);
Islamic State (IS):
(1 issue al-Naba, official IS material, Pro-IS Materials)
Hay’at Tahrir al-Sham (HTS):
(Brigade/Liwa and the SSG)
Jihadist groups integrated into Liwa HTS but with independent propaganda:
(Mujaheddin Ghuroba Division, Harakat Muhajirin Ahl-Sunnat Iran);
Jihadist groups aligned with HTS:
Independent Jihadist groups:
(Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Turkestan Islamic Party (TIP), Ansar al-Islam, Jaish al-Adl);
Jihadist Tactical Group:
(Muhojir Tactical, Yurtugh Tactical).
I would like to remind all readers to access the app or the site because within the e-mail you cannot read the entire analysis and not all photos are displayed.
Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) issued three statements and seven photos to claim three attacks, as part of the “Arrows of Truth” campaign, conducted by drones against the “Shabwa Defence Force” in the al-Musina’a area of Shabwa governorate. Yemen
Az-Zallaqa Media, Jama’at Nasr al-Islam wal Muslimin (JNIM), issued 3 statements and 6 photos to claim 6 attacks conducted against the Malian Army in the Bafarara area, Cercle of Kayes in the Kayes region, and the Koulikoro area; in Mali and against the Burkinabé army and VDP militias in the areas of Nong Faire, Yatenga Province, Northern Region; on the road between Boulou and Linguekoro, Comoé, Cascades Region; between Dedougou and Nouna, Mouhoun Province, Boucle du Mouhoun Region; and in Balga, Gourma Province, Eastern Region; in Burkina Faso.
Hurras al-Din (HaD), the al-Qaeda affiliate in Syria, issued a three-page statement entitled: “The Summit of Traitors, the Descendants of Abu Raghal”.
In it, he accuses the Arab governments present at the summit with al-Assad of betraying Islam and its people, of being tyrants created by Sykes-Picot, of repressing peoples in revolt, manipulated by the West. HaD also calls them traitors and criminals who have imprisoned mujahidin and reformers. Syria
As-Sahab Subcontinent Media, al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) has published a bimonthly magazine, the April-May issue, “Nawa-e-Ghazwa-e-Hind”. The main editorial condemned the attack on Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Siraj ul Haq (likely the work of the Islamic State), calling it criminal and against Sharia law. It also commented on the current political developments in Pakistan, taking advantage of the situation to promote its anti-democratic and military narrative. The 140-page issue contains many articles in support of the Afghan Taliban and on the decrees issued by Taliban supreme leader Haibatullah Akhundzada.
