In their effort to drive ISIS out of Libya, British forces are reportedly using a new form of psychological warfare to “annoy” the terrorists.
ISIS considers music un-Islamic. So, according to the Times of India, a Pakistani-born intelligence officer, with the British Army, suggested using it to torment them. Specifically, hits from Bollywood.
Libyan troops are currently being trained on how to drive out ISIS from the town of Sirte- which lies halfway between Tripoli and Benghazi. It’s believed that the terrorist group has around 4,000 insurgents in the coastal city, which it’s held for nearly 2 years.
Sharia law, which is imposed inside Sirte, bans all things “western or frivolous” – including the famous tunes from northern India.
In this latest operation – British units are intercepting ISIS communications and blasting them with the music. They also reportedly dumped two cars in Sirte, which were blaring with Bollywood music.
Besides the fact that it’s tormenting the terrorists, this new method of using music as a weapon is helping reveal ISIS hiding places. According to several media reports, ISIS members complain over the radio about the music playing, giving away their exact locations.
