Using the messaging App Telegram, the so called Islamic state militant loyalist showed how this plan of using birds as suicide bombers works.
An online sympathizer of ISIS has proposed a new way for militant group ISIS to use birds as suicide bombers. According to the Washington Post a new site Vocativ “which mines social media for its scoopes” reported this.
Using the messaging App Telegram the so called Islamic state militant loyalist showed how this plan of using birds as suicide bombers works.
According to Vocativ the proposal — “A New Way To Down Warplanes” — “looked like a trolling attempt at first, but at a second glance, it’s a detailed (and creative, albeit repulsive) plan” that “offers suggestions about which birds and explosives would be best to use, and about how to smuggle the birds into a war zone.”
The whole idea is strap a light weight bomb to a bird and train the bird to fly and detonate the bomb. The target is warplanes.
The so called ISIS loyalist says after research he found that two particular birds can be used for this purpose the peregrine falcon and Rüppell’s vulture.
The Washington post indicates that there is a precedent where reports have indicated that militants were strapping explosive devices to chickens “though the farcical images that appeared at the time could not be confirmed."
According to the Washington Post “What this would-be radical's proposal more directly echoes is a subplot in the acclaimed tragicomic 2010 British film "Four Lions," in which a bunch of buffoonish British jihadists attempt to hatch terror plots. One includes a plan to affix bombs to crows and fly them into targets; the predictable result can be seen in the clip above."
