Video: Ansar Beit al-Maqdis reveals the reason for death of four people in Sinai, Tahrir News (Egypt), 5 October 2014

Ansar Beit al-Maqdis has released a new video titled “They are the enemy, be wary of them (2).”

Video: Ansar Beit al-Maqdis reveals the reason for death of four people in SinaiThe new video recording reveals details of the bombing of a house owned by one of the elders of the al-Meniei clan of the al-Sawarka tribe, Abdelmajid al-Meniei. In the video, people are seen storming the house, which appears to have children in it. A remote detonation then turns the two-story house into rubble. The organization accuses al-Meniei of collaborating with security forces against the mujahideen.

The recording then transfers to another scene in which a person calling himself Ahmed Eid Ayad Salim appears. The person describes himself as an “agent of the apostate army,” saying that he was commissioned by the army to arrest people and that he and his companions were wearing the army uniform. He said he was given a weapon and a vehicle to arrest people wanted by the army and to participate in the demolition of their homes.

The scene ends with the person being executed by being shot in the head at night. The organisation directs a message to members of Sinai tribes, saying “Do not think that the death of a small group of tribal members decreases your ability in our hearts, for we are some of your children. Our misfortune is your misfortune, be a partisan of God. We continue to reap the spies of the Jews, except those who repent. The door of repentance is still open and we grant you time to deliver yourselves.”

The organisation filmed ambushes carried out by members of the organization in several locations in Sheikh Zuweid and Rafah, as well as searching cars and comparing names of of car owners with a list carried by a masked member, and in other scenes by carrying a laptop. The film then moves on to show testaments of people who describe themselves as agents of the Jews, including a person named Suleiman Salman Salim Ali, from the al-Nowamis family of the al-Sawarka tribe. He said: “I have dealt with Israeli Mossad since 2009. Mossad asked me to form groups to confront and kill takfiris. They gave me 120 GPS devices to help with targeting takfiris, as well as instructions to acquire pictures and information from Cairo and Sham al-Sheikh.”

Another person, 23-year-old Gehad Salman Salim Abu Namous al-Namous al-Sawarka, as well as a third person, Aish al-Wifa al-Wishi from the al-Barikat tribe, who explained how the three worked with Israeli Mossad, their methods of recruitment and the tasks assigned to them, including collecting information from Sinai, about religious groups and army movements in Sinai. He also described how much they earned from Mossad agents and the surveillance equipment the got from the Mossad agents to plant in different locations.

The recording ends with a masked member saying that this is the penalty for all apostate traitors. He then proceeds to slaughter the three with a knife and places their heads on top of their corpses, directing a message to the Jews that they will not live long and that the coming battle of sticks and stones will be between the mujahideen and the Jews.
