The Anointed Warriors of Allah, (مسحت ووريورز من الله) or the AWA, is an Islamic Extremist group that primarily operates within the Middle East, between Syria and Iraq. Based on Sunni belief, the Insurgency focuses on spreading their radicalized practice of Islam to the rest of the Middle-East, where they will attempt to form and organize their own Islamic State.
The AWA remain the largest and strongest radical Islamic Insurgency group in the Middle-East. Holding more than half a million of fighters in their ranks, in the Present day.
The Mujahideen (1989-1996)
The AWA was birthed out of the Soviet-Afghan War. After the conflict had ended, members and experienced combatants of the Mujahideen movement would relocate and spread out across the entire Middle-East.
Around 1996, members of the Mujahideen would turn to radical Islam, and begin to spread their twisted practices and teachings within countries such as Syria and Iraq.
The Iraq War (2001-2011)
The small Mujahideen group would reform and fight alongside Al-Qaeda in a joint effort to halt the US invasion of Iraq. There, they would fight the US head on, along with many other opposing forces in numerous areas surrounding Iraq. The Iraqi War would serve as a lesson in teaching this group new methods of fighting, along with developing new tactics, and crafting a new stubborn resistance against invading military forces.
After the Iraq War, members of Al-Qaeda would separate and merge with the small Mujahideen movement in order to establish what is now known as 'The Anointed Warriors of Allah'. This was likely due to either disagreements with leadership or religious differences within the ranks of Al-Qaeda.
A man known as 'Abdullah' would ultimately lead this new zealous army, promising a unified Sunni Islamic State over the entire Middle-East.
Even despite many decades of activity, the AWA would finally gain Worldwide attention in 2015. The Middle-East is now in terror, with a growing Radical Islamic insurgency leaking into Syria. Since revealing itself to world, the AWA have recruited more than half a million fighters to serve in their Insurgency movement; ordering Sunni Muslims to take up arms against opposing religions, along with the oppressive Syrian Government.
The AWA will stop at nothing to conquer the entire Middle-East, in what they consider to be the "Prophet's Holy War."
The Syrian Conflict (2015-20??):
For a full-analysis of the Syrian Conflict, please refer to the Conflicts Timeline page...
The Path of Islam:
On April 6th, 2015, an insurgency group known as the 'Anointed Warriors of Allah' revealed themselves to the world. The insurgency established their own Caliphate in Syria, and declared that all followers of Islam rise up and join their army. And also threatened other religions in the Middle-East, claiming that they would be slaughtered and identified as non-believers.
But despite AWA's claims, the radical Islamic group wouldn't receive worldwide attention until American sleeper agents working for the extremist group commenced one of the most gruesome atrocities in the United States; in recent times. Labelled as the "Washington D.C. Massacre', over 100 civilian casualties were listed after a Subway was bombed twice, this included 200 more civilians being wounded. On two different areas in the subway, a large crowd of bystanders were blown up by a Suicide-bomber, whilst a train carrying 40 passengers blew up from another bomber. After the two explosions had gone off, 4 individuals wielding assault-rifles walked down into the Subway and blocked off the exits; shooting down dozens of civilians who were trying to escape from the carnage. The Sleeper agents managed to escape soon after they had ran out of ammo..
Ultimately, this led to PMCs all-around the world reacting almost immediately by accusing AWA for the terrorist-attack, and as a result had sent their armed forces into Syria to bring the fight to the extremist group. In the following days, PMCs including Blackforce Corporation, Hammerhead, Trinity Corporation would declare War on the Anointed Warriors of Allah. However, after a few months of fighting the Extremists, both factions Hammerhead and Trinity would pull out of Syria. Leaving Blackforce to be one of the original PMCs to remain in Syria, alongside supporting factions Elios Corporation, ODQ, and Phoenix International. The Syrian Civil War rages on...- 2016
A New Warfare:
On April 23, 2016, a year later into the Syrian Conflict, 2 moderately new factions including both the WLA and Kraaivuur Intl. were hit hard by Nerve-Gas bombings. Officially indicating that the AWA possesses a Weapon of Mass Destruction (WMD). Because of this, the AWA believes that they have an advantage against the opposing forces within Syria.
On May 20, 2016 3 out of 4 Dirty Bombs were detonated by AWA, in the city of Inkhil. The entire city was blown to pieces, along with insurgents and WLA soldiers; claiming more than 5,000 lives altogether. As a result, this has indicated that AWA possessed Nuclear Weapons. Because of this, AWA has become a much more prominent threat in the Syrian Conflict.
The Platine Inferno:
On June 4, 2016, 14 sleeper agents were smuggled into The Platine Commonwealth and initiated a violent and bloody terrorist attack in their country.
Claiming an estimate of 300 civilians and armed forces in the Platine Capitol, Corrientes, the attackers first blew up a subway and then headed straight for the streets where they massacred more than 200 people. Various buildings, shops, and cars had also been bombed claiming more lives in the attack; resulting in Platine armed forces to respond. However, several responding officers would too join the large list of casualties. In the end, more than 300 lives were claimed in total, and 13 out of 14 of the agents were killed.
- Summer 2016
Battle of Ash-Shaddadi:AWA insurgents fight off a combined force of PMCs in Ash Shaddadi, Syria. Supporting them in defending the city, the Smokkelaars Alliansie helped fortify and fend off as many of the attackers as possible. Many insurgents and smugglers had died off, leaving a small amount of AWA activity in Ash Shaddadi. Currently, small pockets of insurgents continue to fight back until reinforcements finally arrive...the battle is at a current stalemate.
- Winter 2016
The Tchvonian Butcher:
On December 11, 2016, a group of masked men entered a small Tchvonian village known as Bolshoy Laryak; Slaying and terrorizing anything in their path. The hunters first introduced themselves by casually walking door-to-door and shooting anyone who opened their doors. During the shootings, the powerlines were disconnected which prevented anyone from calling local police in the area.
The hunters then captured a few dozen other villagers and proceeded to force all of the captives to run out into the woods. Giving them a 10 second head start before the men hunted each and every last captive down, killing them like it was a sport. In total, 28 people were killed during the terrorist attack, leaving only a surviving population of 13 within the small village. 90% would perish in the gruesome attack.
As word broke out, AWA official, Al-Hasib, would claim full responsibility for the massacre; Jokingly calling it the ''Tchvonian Butcher". The terrorist attack was a show of force from the AWA, as well as an act of vengeance from TPAF's crushing air raid campaigns on Ash-Shaddadi.
Death of a Sultan:
On January 15, 2017, the founder/leader of the AWA, 'Abdullah', is killed in an airstrike launched by The Tchvonian People's Republic of Tchvonia.The operation was planned to cripple the AWA in its war efforts in Syria, and because of the recent inactivity, it seems that the operation was a complete successful in doing just that.
The death of the Sultan has silenced the AWA for over a year, causing the world to ask and wonder: "Did it really take one air strike to defeat the AWA ?"
Time would tell...
The Sultan's Resurgence:
On January 14, 2018, after an entire year of seclusion the AWA revealed itself to the World, once more. With Al-Hasib now leading the Insurgency as the new Sultan of the AWA; He had called upon all Muslims of Sunni belief to join their army in order to defeat the European Invaders in Turkey.
As he gave his speech, it had been revealed that a deadly terrorist attack was underway in The Eastern Roman Republic. The capital city of Adrianople was terrorized in arguably one of the deadliest terrorist attacks to date, resulting in the deaths of over 90 senators. The government officials were taken as hostage after a brutal raid on the Senate building, and each man was executed for their role in the Turkish Conflict. The chaotic raid spearheaded by 25 heavily-armed terrorists, with each cell being trained and skilled in close-quarters engagements.
On February 1, 2018, the terrorist attack had ended with a majority of AWA cells in the Senate building setting off their suicide vests. The explosion was so loud and spontaneous that it allegedly echoed, and shook the city of Adrianople for a brief moment.
Various other explosives were said to have been used, but none have since been identified.
In the aftermath, any remaining AWA cells in Adrianople would engage in numerous shootouts with civilians and ERR forces. Ultimately, resulting in their deaths as they were either shot or captured in the long-run.
A Fallen President:
On February 24, 2018, Herreran President Antoinne Larrisse held a parade all-across Herrera, celebrating the nearing-victory against the Netherlands. In Leeuwaarden, Holland, the President's vehicle would be explode from hand grenade. Perpetuated by radicalized Herreran secret-service agent Victor Depardieu, he was given orders to reveal himself and perform a suicide-bombing inside the Presidential car. Ultimately, 5 people were killed in the explosion, including the President, with 14 more people critically-injured by the blast radius.
Later that same day, new Sultan to the AWA, Al-Hasib would make a live-recording taking full-responsibility for the tragic attack. Making violent claims such as how Herrera was apart of the now-collapsed Central Pact, much like Tchvonia was. And how the Central Pact had planned the air raids in Damascus, which killed their previous Sultan, 'Abdullah'.
The AWA's 'hit-list' continues to be checked off, leaving many to currently wonder: "Who is next on the list?"
The Second Battle of Damascus:
On March 18, 2018, Herrera would spearhead an Invasion on the Syrian city capital, otherwise known as 'Fort Damascus', effectively declaring war on the AWA. The Herreran Navy's 4th naval fleet deployed both Blackhawks and UH-60 Ghost Hawks, as well as F-15s, initiating an air-to-ground invasion against the city. With an invasion force of around 60,000 marines up against 30,000 AWA insurgents, any sign of victory from either Belligerent will still result in mass-casualties.
During the initial invasion many helicopters and fighter jets were been downed by AWA AA-Gun emplacements. Proving that the AWA's defenses were quite methodical, but not superior by any means, as most zpu-4s had been taken out by Herreran Marines within the early hours of the invasion. Despite this, at least 57 Blackhawks have been knocked out of the air-space, along with 8 F-15s.
Currently the battle rages on, with no clear sign of a victor being revealed yet. The AWA defenders will fight tooth-and-nail for their city, while Herrera continues employing it's use of naval guns and air strikes...
The Caliphate System:
Following the death of Former Sultan, 'Abdullah', a new leader is expected to take his place, should such a scenario occur. As a result, second in-command to the AWA, Al-Hasib, was ordered to take the position. Thus making him new Sultan to the AWA.
The Sultan is a highly-prestigious rank within the Caliphate system. He acts as the ruler/leading figure, and provides political, religious, and combative tasks to further benefit his army. Because of this, The Sultan is beloved by his followers as he holds a religious connection that is arguably unmatched by followers of Islam.
Members of the AWA will listen and follow orders, without question. Even being willing to sacrifice their own lives, to save The Sultan's if he were to be threatened.
Apart from religious power, The Sultan appears to hold an alarming abundance of wealth and resources, as well. One may even question where or how such a figure had earned their wealth and riches...
AWA's most skilled and experienced fighters are enlisted into this rank, with the sole purpose of defending a person of interest, or specific area. These extremists can be comparable to that of a Special Forces unit in an official military branch. They will devote themselves to the practice of Islam, whilst performing difficult and often extremely dangerous operations, to further benefit the AWA. Almustanir will not hesitate to follow an order issued by those ranking above them. Even if it means sacrificing their own lives to protect said person/place/or thing.
Members of Almustanir are considerably imposing, as they use stealth and ranged attacks to their advantage.
They can be identified by their varied rugged robes, scarves, and sunglasses.
The Alsayadin act as the AWA's personal police, in which they enforce the Law of the State upon any occupied zones controlled by the AWA. Members of Alsayadin are also used a hunters and trackers against anyone who is believed or suspected of practicing any opposing religion to Sunni Islam, and there for are entitled to arrest and punish anyone who does not abide to the Caliphate's ideology.
They are infamous for storming buildings and homes at random and unexpected intervals, and are rarely seen, unless performing city patrols. They are highly skilled in hand-to-hand combat, and appear much more physically-fit than an Average Islamist.
Alsayadin can be identified by their all-black uniforms, as well as appearing heavily-armed and brandishing machetes and daggers.
Juundin, or Soldiers (In English), are essentially operators with far better experience than the typical Jihadist. They're better equipped, fairly trained, and are much more efficient insurgents. Juundin make up the second-bulk of the AWA's army, and are used as an efficient Support unit as they have a larger scale of equipment to use in combat. This can range from powerful explosives like grenades, RPGs and IEDs, to a variety of guns such as DMRs and assault rifles; these insurgents are not only of capable accessing an array of arsenals, but can also take advantage of their environment: This can range from using actual camouflage, to lurking in ruined buildings, to even entrenching.
The Juundin role is earned through aggressive physical training, combat experience, and prolonged experience within the Caliphate. Veterans of the Syrian Conflict will easily meet this criteria, considering their skills and knowledge of guerilla warfare have hardened overtime.
Juundin can be identified by their varied camouflage jackets and pants, vests, helmets and other modern equipment.
The Jihadist are the most common fighters of the army. They're willing to sacrifice themselves in the name of Allah and thier Sultan. Jihadist are considerably the most expendable troops in the entire Caliphate. These insurgents are also the newest initiates enlisted into the Militia, and therefor are ill-equipped, unskilled, and are generally unprepared for combat. Despite this, their loyalty to the AWA's cause makes them also one of the most determined fighters, as well.
Jihadists are often reckless, blood thirsty, and in some cases are considerably most-deadly in large quantities. This is evidenced during a large ambush led by militants, who charged into the direct line of fire from Blackforce agents. Leaving only one operator alive, and countless insurgents killed in the attack.
Because of how successful this tactic was, it has become an official method of attack and has adopted the name 'Jihad Charge' as a majority of the participants are expected to die.
Jihadists can be identified by their civilian clothes, implying that they were once civilians, prior to joining the insurgency.
Equipment/Weapons & Vehicles:
Status: Sworn Enemies----.
The AWA despises any non-believer of Islam. And The Order are no exception to this powerful hate. Their zealous Christian ideology conflicts directly with the AWA's zealous and radical practices of Sunni Islam, deeming them a true enemy of their religion.
Naturally, the terrorist group will force people of other religions to convert, or flee the country. However, with how powerful The Order's control over Christianity is, the AWA have deemed to commit religious genocide of Christians, without hesitation. This is practiced, in order to prevent The Order's wretched teachings from spreading across the Middle-East.
As of yet, neither faction have engaged each other in conflict. However, with the senate attack on the ERR, The Order's leader has revealed himself, and thus declares war on the Muslim religion...
Status: Sworn Enemies----.
The AWA despises any non-believer of Islam. The UZF is the prime example of such hate and disgust seen from the Islamic terrorist group. Zionist and Jews alike have recently become an issue for the AWA, as recent terrorist attacks on the Syrian Capital have revealed a new threat. And thus, resulted in stronger fortifications being built within Fort Damascus.
The UZF has clearly shown themselves to be a true threat to the AWA, and their Islamic ideology. Because of this, the Syrian Jewish population will soon be subjected to antisemitic prejudice and be slaughtered without question by the AWA. The destruction of Judaism is now one of the AWA's main goals, aside from their campaign in conquering the Middle-East.
Growing concerns and future counter-methods are being planned by the AWA, with laws to rid Syria of Jews already being developed.
Status: Sworn Enemies----.
The AWA were held responsible for the assassination of Herreran President, Antoinne Larisse, in a sudden terrorist attack. Claiming that he and many other members of the now-collapsed Central Pact, had colluded with Tchvonia in the death of 'Abdullah'.
A hatred has surged within the Insurgent army, seeking to destroy anything and anyone relating to Herrera. Because their former President was Anti-Muslim, the AWA also use this as another reason to justify their actions against Herrera. Believing that Herrera and her allies are enemies against the Muslim religion.
Since then, both the AWA and Herrera have come in contact through a massive invasion led by Herrera's Navy, against the Syrian city capital, deemed 'Fort Damascus'.
Status: Sworn Enemies---.
The AWA hates Communism. This hatred is also influenced by the assassination of the AWA's great Sultan, Abdullah; Who was murdered in an air strike spearheaded by Tchvonia. Causing a massive outcry within the terrorist group.
The Insurgency now calls for the blood of all Tchvonian people, seeking vengeance over the death of their great Leader.
The FEK were always viewed as enemies to the AWA, as they were a former member of the now-collapsed Central Pact. Members of this former Pact have recently faced terrorist attacks, which one can only assume that Karaq would also be on this list.
Karaq's transition from a Republic to Empire also threatens the AWA's goals in forming unified Islamic States, all across the Middle-East. The FEK's powerful political views, and strong atheist ideology also challenges the AWA's radical Islamic ideology. Thus making their hate and hostility, even stronger.
But in 2018, official contact between the AWA and FEK was made as a small squad of Karaqi commandos had infiltrated a city held by the AWA. A massive Jihad Charge was initiated, which resulted in the many deaths of AWA insurgents, along with the 10 Karaqi commandos who were savagely butchered during the ambush.
The AWA has since declared war on Karaq, in the aftermath of the failed attack.
After the AWA had fallen into silence over 2017, the terrorist group watched the world carefully. It wasn't until the country known as ERR, who would declare war on Turkey, that the AWA would begin plotting a new attack. This was partly due to the religious genocide of arabs, along with European invaders threatening a Middle-Eastern country.
As of the beginning of 2018, the AWA have commenced a brutal terrorist attack on the ERR's main province of Adrionople. Slaying and dismantling their country's whole senate in a violent massacre.
The Commonwealth made no public threats to the AWA. However, arguably one of the deadliest terrorist attacks has been committed on Platine soil. And the main motive simply being that the Country was left vulnerable, and needed to be demoralized.
With over 300 people dead in considerably one of the largest mass-shootings Worldwide, the AWA has proven to attack any country.
Trinity's cloning process is viewed as inhumane, and are seen as abominations to mankind. Trinity and it's clone series of battle-hardened soldiers have been a constant scourge in the AWA's campaign to conquer Syria. The shear hate for these 'creatures' has resulted in paranoia and fear of AWA cloned soldiers, who were believed to turn against their own comrades in battle, resulting in the Insurgency burning their own dead whenever the army comes into contact with Trinity soldiers.
The AWA and Trinity have had many clashes within Syria, between 2015-2016. With brutal battles taking place at Abu Kamal, and Ash-Shaddadi.
Trinity's cynical CEO, Silvia Dawson, has also become a symbol of hate for the AWA. As she is openly seen scrutinizing the AWA, along with their Leader.
Both Blackforce and the AWA have fought countless offensives during the initial uprising in Syria. The AWA view Blackforce as a foreign invader that threatens their way of life, and who seek to dismantle the Insurgency's attempt at forming an Islamic State within the Middle-East.
Attacks on the faction range not only in the Middle-East, but also in the United States. In fact, it was in Seattle, Washington, where AWA terrorists disguised as Blackforce agents and attacked the populace on sight.
The WLA was a lingering threat to AWA, and had to be crippled at all costs.
The AWA seeks to remove the threat of any Foreign militaries and PMCs out of Syria, and this included the WLA. Their army hindered the Insurgency's attempt on establishing an Islamic State, which had led to many brutal battles. The WLA would ultimately be tricked twice into engaging the AWA, in which they would be struck by Nerve-Gas in Daara, and then nuked in Inkhil.
In the end, the WLA were defeated and thus pulled out of the conflict.
