IED Entry Problems with Project Gecko

Post by Ryan » Thu Jul 16, 2015 8:36 am

From Eli...



Thoughts?

IED known threat. Not ground-checking and looking for deadspace lead to quick decisions and movement in unseen area.

(Non-organic meaning they have not worked with IDF before, they do not know their movements; organic meaning they work and sync well together even from separate teams or countries SOP)

Here's another example he sent:



SF reservists group but trained in EOD. They noted the house to be 'rigged to blow.'

He also talked about other hazards:
[*] Bug repellant used around house to make people itch and be disorientated, agitated. Occupied houses were often slept so this annoyed the soldiers.
[*] Oil and substances on floor where people fall.
[*] Floorboards that drop out under pressure, sometimes with pressure plates or IED underneath.
[*] EFPs and IEDs as threats disguised as common household objects.
[*] Flammable, toxic and dangerous substances around house.

What are common signs for an IED (within the context of room clearing)?

A loud noise followed by an even louder silence, impaired vision because of much dust and debris in the air. maybe screaming teammates or separated body parts...
That is how they work, you notice them when its too late.

You have to judge the suspect(s) or opposition. If you suspect they may have rigged the place to blow you need to be very careful and maybe have EOD personel with you.
