Germany pushes for greater video surveillance with newly-adopted regulation

The German parliament has adopted an amendment making it easier to ramp up video surveillance in public places like shopping centers and stadiums, following a spike in terrorist attacks last year.

The amendment to the Federal Data Protection Act was adopted by the Bundestag, the lower house, on Friday. The measure comes on the heels of government’s response to public criticism of security lapses exposed after a string of lone-wolf attacks that hit Germany in 2016.

The new measures will, according to the government statement, make it easier for private companies to install CCTVs and other surveillance systems in public spaces like shopping centers, stadiums and car parks, and also increase the number of surveillance systems they use.

Private companies or owners of public facilities are not obliged to increase security measures or the scale of video surveillance, though the government “would strongly recommend” that operators “make use of this opportunity.”

The amendment also covers the use of video surveillance in public transport, including trains, buses and water transport.

Initially proposed by Interior Minister Thomas de Maiziere, the legislation aims at “increasing the security level in Germany,” according to the government statement.

The statement also emphasizes that “protection of lives, health and freedom of people via video surveillance conducted by private operators in publicly accessible areas should be considered as ‘an issue of particular importance’.”

The Bundestag also adopted the introduction of body cameras that police officers will now wear on their uniforms. The bodycams are designed to protect officers, MPs believe. Police will also be allowed to install new surveillance systems capable of recognizing and registering license plates, said to be an efficient measure in the search for missing vehicles.

The approval of the amendment comes several months after the attack on the Christmas market in Berlin that claimed lives of 12 people and left 48 injured.

German police and intelligence services faced intense criticism following several high-profile attacks that hit the country last year, including the July killing spree in Munich and an ax attack on a commuter train near the Bavarian town of Wuerzburg, as well as a suicide attack at a fair in Ansbach.

PROMISE KEPT: Jihadis Flee Raqqa As President Trump Orders US Marines To Begin Process Of Destroying ISIS

by Geoffrey Grider

Watchdog groups and U.S. government officials say the Islamic State’s leadership in its caliphate “capital,” Raqqa, are relocating to Deir Ezzor as a coalition of Syrian rebels, Kurdish militias, Turkish soldiers, and U.S. troops prepare to battle for the liberation of the southern Syrian city.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Say what you want about President Trump, but let me ask you this. When have you ever seen someone elected to the office of president of the United States who has kept so many of their campaign promises starting on day one? Even Ronald Reagan, who I loved and voted for, didn’t start out this fast or this good. President Trump, we are giving you an A+++ rating as you approach the First 100 Days mark, so please keep it up!

While reports surfaced of plotting to escape Raqqa as early as a month ago, various media outlets report a newfound desperation among the terrorist group’s leadership to reestablish itself in another location before they lose their most significant conquest. Islamic State jihadists are also reportedly fleeing Mosul, including “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The outlet Voice of America (VoA) cites a number of activists from the organizations Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently and the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights – as well a leader of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) – stating they have evidence indicating that the Islamic State’s leadership is looking to leave town and resettle in Deir Ezzor. Hussam Eesa of Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently tells Voice of America that “dozens” of Islamic State vehicles have begun the march through the desert out of Raqqa. The outlet describes those fleeing as “high-ranking commanders and their families.”

This is what candidate Trump promised on ISIS and terrorism:

“When the Mosul offensive intensified, IS brought many leaders to both Raqqa and Deir Ezzor and so now some of those deployed to Raqqa have been moved to Deir Ezzor,” SDF media advisor Mustafa Abdi told Voice of America. Mosul, Iraq, is the nation’s second-largest city and has been under Islamic State control since 2014. A coalition of Iraqi troops, Shiite militias, Kurdish Peshmerga, and others have liberated half the city from ISIS control while continuing the arduous push into the heart of the city.

At a press briefing Wednesday, an unnamed American defense official echoed what the activists on the ground told VoA: numerous senior Islamic State terrorists have fled Raqqa. “The overall picture the official painted of the Islamic State was of an organization losing significant amounts of territory but still determined to fight,” the Times notes, estimating that 15,000 ISIS jihadists remain throughout Iraq and Syria, while up to 4,000 of these are stationed in Raqqa. This number is significantly smaller than the 25,000 estimated to be located in the region a year ago. “Daesh is on the run [and] being degraded by every measure,” the official told reporters.

Boots on the ground: President Trump sends in the Marines

Similar reports, on a small scale, surfaced in February. Pentagon spokesman Captain Jeff Davis told reporters last month that American intelligence had reason to believe Raqqa’s ISIS leadership had begun to flee the city. “An unspecified number of IS ‘bureaucrats’ are heading east along the north bank of the Euphrates River toward Deir el-Zour, because they see the end is near in Raqqa,” he said. At the time, those identified as fleeing were not jihadists but Sharia judges and other “non-combatant” terrorists.

As Islamic State terrorist officials began their escape, the group issued new decrees intended to keep civilians in the city to be used as human shields when the battle for Raqqa begins. “In the past, people couldn’t leave [IS] territory, but what’s new this time is that they can’t even leave their cities to other IS-held areas,” Eesa of Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently told VoA last month.

The Pentagon announced this week that it had deployed Marines to the outskirts of Raqqa to begin the operation of uprooting the Islamic State terrorist group completely. The Marines will be working with the SDF to launch artillery attacks on Islamic State outposts. The U.S. government has insisted that its cooperation is with the Arab, not Kurdish, elements of the SDF following repeated protests from the Turkish government, which considers Syrian Kurdish militias terrorist groups.

While the Islamic State has steadily retreated out of its centers of power in Iraq and Syria, its members have expanded the group’s global footprint, with significant Islamic State activity occurring in Libya, Afghanistan, Nigeria, and the Philippines. source
