Do not let the filthy Rafida get your brothers in those wilayat while there is still blood in your veins. None of you should save any efforts to support them. Defend God’s religion, and call upon the brothers in your regions to join the fight, headed by martyr seekers and inghimasies [those who submerse in enemy’s lines with no intent to come back alive]. Make sure that they are religiously dedicated, patient ones and war experts who don’t look back, fight and don’t lay down their weapons until they get killed or God grants them victory. When picking them, make sure that they voluntarily want to go [to fight in those two provinces]. Also, make sure not to give any promises that they are coming back or taking any leave before God grants his worshipers victory….

… someone who follows al-Qaeda told me that the inghimasiin are the new recruits (he did not specify whether they were soldiers or merely gunmen). He added that the fighters had to wear military uniform to be considered inghimasiin by al-Qaeda. Are these inghimasiin soldiers who were recruited?…

Hassan said the Inghimasy suicide team gets into close-quarter positions on the front lines. “If they succeed they move from one area to another. If they fail to break through, they blow themselves up and their opposition, creating holes in the enemy lines.” Syrian government forces could not afford to send support to the base because of the continuous flow of the Inghimasy fighters, as that would drain their already stretched resources.
