A rifle's journey from Belgium to Gaza – BBC News

There are an estimated 875 million registered firearms in the world. And each year, that number goes up by hundreds of thousands. Three years ago, arms experts spotted a single advanced Belgian rifle in the hands of militants in Gaza. But how had a group listed by the EU and the US as a terrorist organisation obtained the weapon? Arms expert Nic Jenzen-Jones and the BBC’s Thomas Martienssen have tracked its journey.

  6. NeoPup on July 21, 2022 at 7:51 pm

  7. Parousia on July 21, 2022 at 7:53 pm

  8. beck on July 21, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    ok, so Quad-hi-fi got a shipment of F2000 from FN. This is news?

  9. Rudy Smd on July 21, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    BBC hand of zionist media.. this is a real teroris media backup Israel …

  10. Zach Nall on July 21, 2022 at 7:55 pm

    If we were going to arm the middle east it should have been with a new productionΒ rifle firing a newly designed caliber of bullet that only we supply. That way when the conflict is over and we got what we wanted we can stop the supply of this specialty ammo. That way thousands of AK rifles aren’t changing hands half a dozen times within their lifetime possible to terrorists.

    Is the Hague Declaration (IV, 3) of 1899 as much as a joke as the CWC?

  12. mehedi hassan on July 21, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    who care what the hell told fake news organization BBC

  13. SpaceMissile on July 21, 2022 at 7:58 pm

  14. 6mmFilms on July 21, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Paid for by the CIA

  15. GRSL on July 21, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    Select fire and the gun is stupid: 1st shot okay, 2nd and 3rd make it stupid.

  16. Antonio Remedios on July 21, 2022 at 8:02 pm

    To be honest I would have much rather heard about the AK-103 the gent mentioned near the end.

  17. SPVCS on July 21, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Greatest gun ever made. One of my favorites. πŸ’― Splinter Cell πŸ“²

  18. DL_Crabz on July 21, 2022 at 8:04 pm

    What is also remarkable is the fact you see other belgian weapons like the FN Fal / SA58. they say nothing about that.

  19. govinda102000 on July 21, 2022 at 8:07 pm

    Belgium just gave a bunch to Ukraine.

  20. Aleksandr Kamarov on July 21, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    They send the rifle to help! How nice and considerate from them

  21. EE GY on July 21, 2022 at 8:08 pm

    I be more interested how did the F2000 end up in Lybia…

  22. MuayThai Warrior on July 21, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    They are not jihadist’s… They are freedom fighters… Fuck the BBC

  23. Bob Thompson on July 21, 2022 at 8:12 pm

    It is from a video game. It was in splinter cell on the original xbox.

  24. ADAM HAZIQ on July 21, 2022 at 8:13 pm

    Before arab spring, libya special forces used fn2000

  25. Matthew Davis on July 21, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    Dont they have that on mordern warfare

  26. Joshua Radick on July 21, 2022 at 8:15 pm

    I can understand why anyone would want that gun. The Tactical Tuna is pretty cool.

  27. OperationFoxley19441 on July 21, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    The FN57 is an awesome pistol well-done Belgium!

  28. Psithurism on July 21, 2022 at 8:16 pm

    103 is 7.62 tho. Disregarding aesthetic propaganda purposes ofc.

  29. mehedi hassan on July 21, 2022 at 8:17 pm

    Palestinian Freedom Fighter all world with you

  30. Anfrac on July 21, 2022 at 8:18 pm

    2:19 Is that an Australian Ian McCollum?

  31. Lyubomyr Maron on July 21, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Aaaa yes the combat tuna

  32. Jhon Gonzalez on July 21, 2022 at 8:19 pm

    Taliban have most advance weapons thanks to usa

  33. silenciummortum on July 21, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    Fuck the BBC. Eat shit commies!!

  34. Sam Broere on July 21, 2022 at 8:21 pm

    lol i’d rather have an AK anyways

  35. R Preston on July 21, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    1:54 look closely at the background text it says that greentip means POISON not true LOL

  36. Hassan Saeed on July 21, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    What about the grenade launcher attached ,would you say that people in that car ,were carrying under barrel grenade launcher for their safety ,that is too strange .you are actually lying

  37. James alders on July 21, 2022 at 8:22 pm

    People aren’t understanding the purpose of this video, its just an interesting piece on how a modern $3000 dollar gun ended up in the hands of various organisations that are at war with each other. F2000’s are rare, let alone being owned by third world terrorist organisations.

  38. Helljumper on July 21, 2022 at 8:25 pm

    Ahhh Belgian gun on the hands of a terrorist while Belgium sanctioned us on arms.

  39. Hasan Miazi on July 21, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    The real terrorist is America backed Isreal

  40. Local Boi 23 on July 21, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    Is it me or the fs2000 look like a HALO πŸ˜‡ assault rifle πŸ€”

  41. Spetsnaz Indonesia on July 21, 2022 at 8:30 pm

    I hope Palestinian have more State of The Art weapons such as G36C, Famas, Steyr Aug, AK-12

  42. xXDeathMetalThrasherXx on July 21, 2022 at 8:31 pm

    Not only did they get a hold of one, they got one with a GL1 launcher which is even rarer.

  43. Abhishek Dev on July 21, 2022 at 8:32 pm

    OK..so this shoots 5.56 much smaller than an AK.

  44. mrkiiprototype on July 21, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    The f2000 is a joke of a weapon lmao

  45. Leo Aksil on July 21, 2022 at 8:33 pm

    they support the terrorist under the table

  46. Amistrophy on July 21, 2022 at 8:36 pm

    FN herstal is gaming my dudes

  47. Paleo PH on July 21, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    0:32 Jonathan Ferguson, explaining the F2000 before he would talk about the same gun in his review of Battlefield 4 guns

  48. Al W on July 21, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    Why would FN stop selling weapons, the only thing they sale? It makes absolutely no sense that FN would just stop. As long as war is profitable, profit will attract weapon manufacturers.

  49. Vtg gas_295 on July 21, 2022 at 8:37 pm

    They sell the guns to them, and now scream about itπŸ’―πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈβœ”
