Car bombs (Vehicle Borne Improvised Explosive Devices Ė VBIEDs) have been one means to track the growth and operational strength of the Islamic State (IS). VBIEDs require supply systems to provide explosives and cars, intelligence gathering to find targets, and means to plant the bombs. In 2012 there was a dramatic increase in the use of car bombs marking ISís return from its nadir in 2011.
