What's This?

Abdelhamid Abaaoud has become a famous name for the wrong reasons. The 28-year-old Belgium national is believed to be the mastermind behind the Paris attacks. A video has surfaced which shows the man transferring corpses to a mass grave.


The video in question has become one of the most-watched ones online. The man who was believed to be in Syria has been traced. French police is running a mass raid to find the man believed to have a connection with ISIS authorities and the people who carried out the attack.

The Abdelhamid Abaaoud video is traumatic. He is seen laughing while he puts a mutilated body in his truck. They spell “Allah-Hu-Akbar” as they drag the bodies to a different location. It is so brutal that many parts of the video had to be blurred.

After the Abdelhamid Abaaoud video surfaced, the question has become, “Who is Abdelhamid Abaaoud?” The man from Belgium was assumed to have been killed in 2014. His family had no idea that he is still alive. This made it possible for him to travel from Syria to Europe so easily. Belgium is considered to be the heartland of Islamic State in Europe. There are numerous people who fly from Belgium to Syria for training. According to the government of Belgium, they have lost control over Molenbeek. Moving to Syria has become so easy, nothing can be kept under scanner.

The terror attack in Paris was planned in Syria. The French government also made its move after the attack when it sent 10 fighter planes to drop bombs on the base camp of Syria. Abdelhamid Abaaoud has been in the lists of counterterrorism bodies for quite some time. It was not clear if Abaaoud was present at the time of the recent airstrike, though.

Charlie Winter, a security analyst specializing in ISIS, said regarding Abaaoud, “He’s exactly the kind of people you would expect to plan something like this,” adding, “You don’t go from never trying anything to masterminding an attack involving multiple attackers, multiple targets and multiple weapons.”

A false passport with his name was found beside the body of an attacker. However, the Abdelhamid Abaaoud video has proven to be destructive to human emotions.
