Many of the Islamist terrorists shot their way into the In Amenas compound on Thursday using the AK104 model of Kalashnikov, which was typically used by Libyan rebels in the war against Muammar Gaddafi. They brought F5 rockets that also surfaced in the Libyan war, said the security source.The Islamists wore the same type of outfits provided to Libyan National Transitional Council rebels by Qatar – yellow flak jackets with brown patches, known as “chocolate chip” camouflage. The garments are copies of ones worn by Americans in the Gulf war. The terrorists also employed 60mm gun-mortars used by France and Libyan rebels. Other non-Libyan arms used in the Algerian terror attack included German and Chinese-made Kalashnikovs, classic rocket-propelled grenades and Russian offensive and defensive grenades. The Algerian army had two missile-carrying Mi24 Super-Hind helicopters, armoured cars, and Russian-made T90 tanks. For the assault on the gas facility itself, special forces used incapacitating gas, infrared cameras, heat-seeking cameras and “optical devices to be able to see under doors and through walls”.

Israel arrests 13 Palestinians on suspicion of being behind a shooting attack on an IDF force in Ramallah on Jan. 20

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) and Israel Defense Forces recently arrested 13 Palestinians on suspicion of being behind a shooting attack on an IDF force in Ramallah on Jan. 20, the security service said in a statement Monday.
There were no casualties during the shooting attack at the Am’ari refugee camp in Ramallah, but some damage was caused to a military vehicle.
Among those arrested are some employees of the Red Crescent, the Palestinian Red Cross, in Ramallah, one of whom also served as a goalie in the Palestinian Olympic soccer team.
It was also revealed by the Shin Bet that one of the weapons used in the attack, a Kalashnikov, was given to the terrorists by an officer in the Palestinian intelligence service, which oversees employees of the Red Crescent.
The 13 suspects who were arrested, all residents of the Am’ari refugee camp, revealed in their interrogations that they took part in extensive activities against IDF forces guarding the security fence.
The main suspects linked to the shooting attack at the IDF force in January are:
Salah Bararel, born in 1989, a resident of Am’ari, affiliated with Hamas, employed as a guard at the Red Crescent.
Omar Abu Ravis, born in 1989, a resident of Am’ari, affiliated with Hamas, employed at the Red Crescent in Ramallah, is also the goalie of the Palestinian Olympic soccer team.
Fuad Ousha, born in 1989, a resident of Am’ari; barber shop owner (in custody of Palestinian security forces).
Ahmed Khattab, born in 1989, a resident of Am’ari, worked as a guard at the Red Crescent.
During an interrogation of the suspects, it was revealed that Salah Bararel and Omar Abu Ravis used two Kalashnikov rifles, which Ravis received from his friend Manzar Abbas two months earlier, to carry out the attack.
Fuad Ousha acted as a lookout during the attack.
After the attack, the shooters left the rifles inside a bag in an abandoned house, and allegedly planned to transfer them to a new hiding spot the next day. Eventually, Omar Abu Ravis gave the weapons, in the bag, to Ahmed Khatab, who after Abu Ravis’ arrest transferred them back to Manzar Abbas.
During their questioning, the suspects also revealed that they had planned other shooting attacks against IDF troops stationed at Attara, Geva checkpoint, Atarot checkpoint, even in Maaleh Adumim, Ofra and Nablus.
Just like during the Holocaust… it was the ambulances of the Red Cross that supported the Nazi side.
Gaza terrorists have a new tool helping them to fire on innocent civilians living in southern Israel – the popular satellite mapping program Google Earth. A group of terrorists from the Al-Aksa Martyrs’ Brigades recently described their use of the program to a reporter for Slate Magazine. Time to Un Dhimmi “The technology is always improving,” a terrorist calling himself Abu Saif told journalist Sharon Weinberger. “Our struggle started with the Kalashnikov, and then it moved to the suicide bomb, then the locally made rocket, and now the Grad rocket.”
Gaza terrorists in rocket launching crews use Google Earth to aim their weapons, Abu Said said. The program is seen as superior to maps because it is more up-to-date and gives precise locations for potential targets. Gaza terrorists who spoke to Weinberger said they plan to continue with rocket attacks despite the deployment of the Iron Dome system, which shoots short-range rockets out of the air. “The Israelis are using a lot of money for this defense, but during the last rocket attacks, our rockets made it through,” explained Abu Hamza, a senior Islamic Jihad terrorist. Iron Dome goes three for four!
