October 2, 2017

On September 29, 2017, the media office of the Islamic State (ISIS) in Raqqa, Syria released a video showing the group using unexploded U.S. bombs in its martyrdom operations, IED attacks, and drone attacks. The video, which was posted on multiple pro-ISIS Twitter accounts and Telegram channels, also featured a Yemeni fighter named Abu Hafs urging the mujahideen to ask Allah for forgiveness and showed another fighter making the bombs used in ISIS weaponized drone attacks.

The video then showed two drone-filmed martyrdom operations in a residential area carried out by Abu Abdalla Al-Ashami and Abu Khattab Al-Azeri. After showing a fighter using a substance taken from the unexploded bombs to make IEDs, the video showed footage of combat with fighters firing their weapons, throwing bombs, and launching rockets. Next, the video featured a man making the bombs that ISIS uses in its GPS-guided weaponized drone attacks. This was followed by footage of multiple drone attacks on vehicles, houses, and individuals.
