Islamic State is running a sophisticated top-secret training academy in Raqqa, the terrorists’ de facto capital in Syria, recently uncovered footage has revealed.
Footage recorded inside the training centre shows the shocking advances the terror group has made in their technological competence, having developed a variety of innovative weapons and highly-sophisticated bombs capable of causing carnage in major cities in the West.
The eight-hour-long video from the advanced university of terror featured Islamist professors training jihadis to bring down passenger airlines with rockets and execute complex and deadly bombing missions on European cities.
Trainers boasted of extensive stockpiles of explosives and advanced weaponry ISIS had acquired in the films which included two jihadi fighters trialling a driverless car.
Designed to be laden with explosives in remote bombing missions on high value targets in the West, the video shows the car independently accelerating, steering and braking whilst the pair occupy the driver and passenger seats.
Scientists from the militant group have claimed that the cars will be fitted with un-jammable radio sets to prevent intelligence services from disrupting the signal and averting a catastrophe.
According to security analysts, the content of the footage suggests that the films were intended to be shared with ISIS supporters in the West, with the intention viewers would be inspired to replicate the technology in order to cause carnage.
Major Chris Hunter, a former special forces bomb disposal expert, has expressed his shock at the level of technological competence ISIS has exhibited in the footage, adding that the films served an “intel gold mine” for Western security services.
He said: “I think this is one of the most significant intelligence finds in terms of Daesh.
“With this training footage it’s very clearly purely designed to pass on information – to pass on the progress in the research and development areas – and it gives us a very good insight into where they are now, what they’re aspiring to do and crucially the diversity of the types of threats we might face.”
