Libyan Foreign Ministry attacked by soldiers of the caliphate, 3 people dead.
December 26, 2018 | Brainwave Science
Three suicide bombers stormed the Libyan foreign ministry in the capital Tripoli, killing at least three people including a senior civil servant in an attack claimed by the Islamic State jihadist group.
According to Libyan authorities, three attackers began the assault with a car bomb, damaging vehicles and buildings, then opened fire on the ministry. Twenty-one other people were injured in the attack. Two suicide bombers who managed to get inside the ministry blew themselves on the second floor of the building while security forces killed the third assailant outside the premises.
Foreign Minister Tahar Siala said in a press conference that one of the deceases was a senior diplomat Ibrahim al-Shaibi.
ISIS claimed the responsibility of the attack through social media, declaring it was carried out by three “soldiers of the caliphate” who were armed with suicide belts and automatic weapons. ISIS has been active in Libya since the overthrow of Qaddafi in 2011. The extremist group took control of the region but lost major part to local forces backed by US air strikes in 2015.
Interior Minister Fathi Bash Agha admitted that current situation of Libya i.e. security chaos offers propitious condition for ISIS and other terrorist groups. Libya is torn apart by a power struggle between administrations to control the territory and country’s vast oil wealth which has become a haven for jihadis.
According to authorities, law enforcement agencies lacked proper equipment necessary to restore law and order. The foreign minister requested UN to lift an arms embargo that was imposed on Libya since the 2011 uprising.
Extremist groups especially ISIS are responsible for the majority of attacks, which have targeted foreign and diplomatic personnel in the past. Libyan authorities fear that due to security chaos, ISIS might take control over the oil field which could be like winning a jackpot as the finance would be much stronger. However, unlike in Syria and Iraq, Islamist militants have never controlled oil fields in Libya, but officials worry this could happen in the future if the internal unrest continues.
Although GNA- aligned forces against terrorism, aided by U.S. airstrikes, acknowledged the defeat of ISIS in Libya, however with recurring terror attacks by ISIS proves otherwise and group remain a serious threat to security in Libya. The important question arise for the Libyan counter-terrorism agencies is what can be done to eliminate terrorism regardless of the existing internal problem?
With the current situation and investigative tools equipped by Libyan law enforcement agencies, the terrorism situation in Libya is far from being resolved. It is next to impossible for law enforcement personnel to produce an effective work without well-equipped investigative tools and supportive government. Due to weak and conflicting government, a poor security situation, unprotected borders and largest oil reserves in Africa, Libya remains the most alluring country for the remnants of ISIS and Al Qaeda which pose a threat to the country, its regional neighbors and even the entire European continent.
The war between terrorism and law enforcement agencies has been going on since decades. The NATO might have been almost successful to defeat the ISIS and other terrorist organizations, but the threat still remains imminent. Defeating these extremist organizations would require something advanced, modern and unknown to these terrorist organizations.
Libyan Foreign Ministry’s case demonstrates exactly why the counter-terrorism agencies need a better and advanced investigative tool in order to eliminate terrorism from Libya. The tool that is well suited for Libyan counter-terrorism personnel is an advanced neuroscience forensic technology that can distinguish the terrorists from innocents before they plan/commit a crime and further reveal what specific information the terrorist is trying to conceal within an hour. The existing investigative methods such as interrogations and polygraph which are opted by counter-terrorism agencies as an intelligence-gathering tool do not guarantee accurate results and are time-taking.
All these terrorist attacks are carried out by foot-solider of a terror group. However, the mastermind behind these attacks plans the next one with new foot soldiers. Only possible way to end this cycle of terrorism is through Brainwave Science which has already developed and designed one-of-a-kind advanced neuroscience-based technology that provides a scientific and legal way for the law enforcement personnel to tap inside the suspected terrorist’s brain to reveal the specific crime-related information with over 99% accuracy and it’s called iCognative. This technology is based on scientifically proven and accepted P300 and P300-MERMER brain responses, which only activates when a suspect sees an information that his/her brain already possess. Terrorists irrespective of extreme physical and mental training, cannot lie or cheat iCognative as these brain responses are involuntary.
A 45-minutes iCognative test when utilized by law enforcement agencies on suspected terrorists would reveal all the specific information such as the terrorists plan, group’s modus operandi, financial details, training location, future plan, identification of known or unknown terrorists of ISIS, specific codes used by terrorists, etc., which are available in their brain. All the investigative details related ISIS in Libya is uploaded into the iCognative system protocol. The system records and analyses the brainwave responses of each suspect’s brain when all the case related including confidential information (called Stimuli) in the form of words, phrases and pictures is flashed on a digital screen to determine what information he/she possesses or trying to conceal from the investigator with over 99% accuracy.
Brainwave Science’s iCognative can support law enforcement agencies to eliminate the terrorism within few months. iCognative is the only forensic technology that isn’t biased, its primary goal is not only find terrorist but also protect innocent from any injustice.
