Analysis: Assassination attempt on Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal

Analysis of Assassination

Analysis: Assassination attempt on Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal

Firstly, I am using this as an example of how operations can go wrong and how both sides made mistakes. I am not Israeli or Palestinian so, the politics are none of my business or interest!

This case highlights how basic mistakes can lead to big problems. As you watch the below video you will see both sides ignored or were very lax with their counter surveillance. Even when the Palestinians spotted the Mossad Agents acting suspiciously just before the assassination attempt they took no preventive measures; bodyguards just follow people around and open doors right? Counter surveillance is one of the basic factors for all operational security plans and professionally trained close protection personnel / bodyguards are preventive, not solely reactionary.

The fact that after the assassination attempt the Mossad Agents did not realize they were being followed is crazy, this would be the time I would think they should have on high alert for being tailed or intercepted by police etc.

Bjp0Vg0IAAAz_-HObviously the assassins had no plans for if the operation went bad, was this due to arrogance or just negligence, who knows. Would it not have made sense to split up or have protective surveillance personnel shadowing them after they left the vehicle right? I understand why they had no firearms but no improvised weapons? I tell me students the first rule of unarmed combat is always pick up a weapon! This is the real world, we are not interested in getting people to tap out or score points, we are interested in staying alive and not going to jail.

In this business it’s better to learn from others mistakes, I have learnt a hell of a lot from my own mistakes, but learning from others is by far a safer option… Enjoy the video!

Pro’s and Cons of Armored Cars

Pro’s and Cons of Armored Cars

I am regularly asked about whether I favor armored cars or not, as with everything they have their pros and cons. Armored cars do have an application, the first thing you need to consider is what level of armoring the car you’re buying or using has. I have come across people driving around in cars armored to stop pistol caliber rounds in areas where the bad guys carry assault weapons, they thought an armored car was all they needed and were unaware of the different levels of armoring.

You will also need to confirm where the car is armored; doors, windows, floor, engine, roof etc. Some cars may only have some armored panels in the doors and rear seat, always check for yourself and do not believe what people tell you. Also try to find out who armored the car; is it a production vehicle, was it armored by a reputable company or by the local mechanic. Some steel plates welded into the vehicle at the local chop shop may work fine, as long as the suspension holds out and the engine runs. As with all vehicle op’s, always do your maintenance checks or make sure the drivers do them!

Travel Security: Driving in Hostile Environments

If you are using a driver you should check his qualifications and make sure he can actually drive to a good standard and the vehicle you’re using is well maintained. Over the years I have encounter people who claim to experienced chauffeurs, drivers and bodyguards but in reality were a liability. The main thing you need to consider when hiring drivers or security personnel is whether they can be trusted or are they working with the criminals or kidnappers. This is where you always need to be personally security aware and know where you’re going and what you’re doing, never unconditionally trust anyone with your life or to have your best interests at heart.

Now think like the criminals, if you knew your target was driving around in a SUV armored to B6 level are you going to shoot at them when they are driving around or wait for them stop and get out of the car, or stop them and make them get out of the car? Think about how can you get someone out of a car; what would you do if a female driver bumped into the back of your car, get out to inspect the damage and then possibly be kidnapped by her two armed accomplices crouched in the back seat of her car? Always be aware of decoys that are intended to make you stop and get out of your vehicle, such as accidents or even bodies next to the road. Basic rule, stay in your car and keep moving between safe areas.

A criminal tactic when targeting armored cash-in-transit vehicles is to box them in, cover the van in gasoline, then give those inside to option of throwing out the cash, surrendering or being burnt alive. An issue with armored vehicles is that you cannot shoot at the criminals from the inside. There was one incident I recall from the mid 1990’s where an unarmored van that was moving cash was stopped and ambushed in a country I was doing business in Eastern European. The van was rammed by a truck the criminals had stolen, much like in the movie “Heat”, the fact the van was unarmored enabled the security personnel inside to be able to shoot through the side of the van and drive off the criminals, which they could not have done if they had taken and armored van that day.

Hostile Environment TrainingThere have also been numerous incidents where criminals have assassinated targets traveling in armored vehicles with IEDs, Rocket Propelled Grenades (RPGs) and improvised shaped charges all of which are available on the black market.

An armored vehicle can assist you in your security program and save your life but it should not be all there is to your security program. As always a proper and realist threat assessment need to be done and where budget allows you need to utilize advance security and protective surveillance.

This handgun book is a no-nonsense guide to the application of pistols for self-defense and tactical operations.

ORLANDO WILSON has over twenty-five years’ experience within the international security industry. His experience in risk management business began in 1988 at the age of 17 when he enlisted in the British army and volunteered for a 22-month front-line, operational tour in Northern Ireland in an infantry unit. This tour of duty gave him an excellent grounding in personal security and anti-terrorist operations. He then joined his unit’s Reconnaissance Platoon with which he undertook intensive training in small-unit warfare. Since leaving the British army in 1993, he has worked and coordinated projects in the U.K., South & West Africa, Western and Eastern Europe, U.S., Latin America, Middle East and the Caribbean. His experience has included providing close protection for Middle Eastern Royal families and varied corporate clients, asset protection, embassy security, crisis management, corporate intelligence, asset recovery, tactical, paramilitary training for private individuals, specialist tactical police units, and government agencies. He has become accustomed to working with minimal support and the types of complications that can occur when dealing with international law enforcement agencies and the problems of organized crime.
