I understand.

But my idea is to encourage them to abandon their duty to allah!

The media is going to criticize regardless.

Does it really matter what types of rifles were used? Would tactics (defensive) change based on the type of assault rifle/carbines? I don't know.

And I assume that experienced personnel can identify rifles based on their sound.
