—————————

[Comment: Note that in the above translation, any parenthetical insertions in square brackets are my own. These documents provide a useful overview of a battalion of the Islamic State’s forces in the west Mosul, appearing to date from May 2017 not long before the conclusion of the battle of Mosul. Personnel in the battalion can take on a variety of functions: some function as kitchen staff, others take on a Shari’i function, but the majority are sentinels (called ‘murabiteen’ in Arabic: i.e. they man the front-lines). It is also worth noting the survey number, a system of marking formal members who have pledged allegiance to the Islamic State, as opposed to the ‘munasir’ (‘supporter’) who is of a different category. The survey number generally takes the form of A,BCD,EFG,HIJ. Normally, A is 1, B and C are treated as one number ranging from 00 to 20, D and E are both 0, and the remaining digits appear to be variable. For example:

1,170,011,285.

From this list, by far the most prevalent combination is 1,17 for A,BC. This suggests that that combination is particular to personnel registered in the Ninawa wilaya of the Islamic State. As for combination 1,19, I have observed it for personnel lists from Qayyara (which came under the ‘Dijla wilaya’ of the Islamic State), suggesting it is particular to personnel registered in that wilaya.

An analysis of the names shows the overwhelming majority of personnel in the battalion are Iraqis. I count five personnel with the name ‘Shami’ in their kunyas suggesting they are Syrians originally (most likely) or from the greater Levant. One fighter has ‘Manbiji’ as part of his kunya suggesting he is from Manbij in Aleppo province. Only one fighter in the battalion appears to have a kunya suggesting he is from outside Iraq and the Levant: namely, Abu Khalid al-Jazrawi, whose kunya suggests he is from Saudi Arabia].
