ISIS Claimed Killing Of Canadian Service Members In Chad

Illustrative image

ISIS’ news agency, Amaq, claimed on November 26 that the terrorist group killed a number of Canadian service members during the recent attack in Chad.

The agency claimed that the Canadian military personnel were supporting Chadian government forces, which were preparing to launch a large-scale attack on ISIS positions along the shores of Lake Chad.

“Two days ago, the Chadian army transported dozens of its soldiers and Canadian soldiers into Lake Chad, as a part of preparations to launch an attack on the positions of the Islamic State’s fighters on the shores of the lake,” a security source in ISIS told Amaq.

According to the source, ISIS fighter attacked one of the boats which were transporting Chadian and Canadian with machine guns and an explosive charge, killing and injuring dozens.

“Among those who were killed there were at least four Canadian soldiers,” Amaq’s source said, claiming that the Chadian attack was delayed.

The terrorist group’s recent claims are highly-questionable as no Canadian troops are known to be deployed in Chad. No more than 50 Canadian service members are taking part in “Operation NABERIUS” in neighboring Niger, where they are training local forces.

Some sources claimed that ISIS deleted the claims of killing Canadian service members in its newspaper, al-Nab’a.

Formerly known as Boko Haram, ISIS in West Africa has been active around Lake Chad for many years. From there, the terrorists are launching attacks in Chad and neighboring countries, mainly Nigeria, on a regular basis.

High quality photos and videos would be needed to verify such claims. IF true, it’s either someone pretending to be from Canada or it was a clandestine Canadian op from JTF2 (I believe that’s what they’re called).

You probatly are right, but Danes bring in supply by Herculesses nown and then. They also has a service crow at the ground.

Servicemen can be seen as that.

Vox Populi

Canada is a wanne be neo-imperialist tool of France and US and just jumps to the masters commands. It is has third rate military that fled Afghanistan and like the other Crown puppet Australia, has been implicated in horrendous war crimes from Somalia to Afghanistan.

Frankly, Canada is just a racist little poodle.
