An English-speaking battalion, named after Anwar al-Awlaki, has been composed by ISIS with the purpose of attacking western countries. This is a disturbing revelation that may result in paranoia and potential violence against random English-speaking middle easterners.
From The Daily Mail:
Islamic State has formed a new fighting battalion composed entirely of English-speaking militants with orders to carry out attacks in the West.
The ‘Anwar al-Awlaki Battalion’ has been created to focus solely on carrying out attacks abroad and is working to export its fighters after they’ve attended training camps, it has been claimed.
Anti-ISIS group Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently said its informants in the organisation’s self-proclaimed capital of Raqqa notified it of the development.
According to one of the informants, a foreigner fighter proclaimed: ‘Finally, the orders have been issued to implement an armed operation within my country.
He added: ‘I am now ready to return to my town and carry out operations, now I am able to Jihad in Europe.’
The new battalion was said to have been formed to make good on ISIS’ threats to carry its jihad to Europe after a U.S.-led alliance began its bombing campaign in September.
Its name is a reference to Anwar al-Awlaki, the American cleric who was killed in Yemen in a 2011 CIA drone strike who remains hugely popular with the militants.
Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently is a small activist collective which secretly documents the shocking violence and oppression ISIS has brought to their home city.
Using a network of informers kept anonymous to protect their safety, it leaks details of the ISIS occupation to the world.
The Home Office says over 550 individuals of interest to the security services have travelled to the region from the UK since the start of the conflict. It is estimated around half of these have returned.
