Posted by & filed under counterterrorism.

The prestigious International Institute for Counter-Terrorism, located at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC), Herzliya, Israel, released a new report concerning possibleJihadi Activity in Kazakhstan.

According to this extremely reliable source “Over the past six months, terror-related incidents have been on the rise in Kazakhstan, raising concerns of Islamist activity in this hitherto relatively peaceful and stable Central Asia republic.

On 17 May 2011, three people were wounded when a suicide bomber attacked a security services office in Aktobe. The motives were unclear, and opinions were divided whether this was terrorism or criminal case. Authorities blamed militant Islamists for the attack but called it an isolated incident.
In September and October 2011, the militant group Jund al-Khilafah released two videos of a rocket attack that they claimed to have conducted against an American military base in Khost, Afghanistan on 11 July 2011.
On 29 August 2011 Kazakh security services arrested 18 people in Atyrau and charged them with plotting terrorist activities.
On 31 October 2011, two bombs exploded in Atyrau, Kazakhstan targeting government buildings. An 18 month old baby was hurt by glass from broken windows caused by the explosion. The bomber was killed and was later identified as Baurzhan Kanatovich. Upon searching his apartment, police discovered a homemade bomb, bomb-making materials and instructions. The Kazhak Prosecuter-General’s office said three suspects had been arrested and confessed to involvement in both attacks, which were classified as terrorist acts by government officials. Jund al-Khilafah claimed responsibility for the attack, but said that the bomb exploded prematurely as the attacker was carrying it and that he was not a suicide attacker.
On 12 November 2011, seven people were killed when an ethnic Khazak man, identified as M. K. Kariyev, carried out an armed assault specifically targeting police in Taraz. The militant group Jund al-Khilafah claimed responsibility for the attack and threatened further attacks if the government of Kazakhstan does not repeal a recently passed religious law.”
