DaeshDaily comment: In desert areas in western Salahuddin governorate, Daesh attack units have been operating in smaller groups of around ten fighters or less, sometimes supported by one or two vehicles rigged with explosives. These nimble units, designed for surprise attacks, are less vulnerable to airpower. In addition to their role in Daesh’s strategy to control the local area, the surprise attacks appear intended in large part to distract from their defeats in other areas where they have lost ground, in effect to bolster the credibility of the Daesh slogan that the Islamic State is “remaining and extending.” It is however worrisome to see such operations so close to Tikrit, which was cleared of Daesh forces.

Jordan. Local sources say the Jordanian Captain went to the training center carrying an AK-47 and didn’t use the official M16 in the attack. During lunch he started shooting, killing six and wounding seven before he was killed. Local sources say the killer didn’t kill himself; he was shot. The killer’s family is still refusing to accept the official statement. They say their son couldn’t have killed these people. [Khaberni] [Ammon] [Ammon]

DaeshDaily comment. Within tribal law, the family of the killer is held accountable for the families of the victims even if he was killed. That’s the reason the family is denying, because now they have to answer to the Jordanian victims’ families. In similar cases, Daesh published videos of such terrorists pledging allegiance before the attacks. What might they say if Daesh publishes a video like that with their family member?.
