ISIS released a video of militants executing and beheading Syrian rebels as a way to threaten those that would join the cause to overthrow the Assad regime. The video is at the bottom of the article. ISIS is known to have a robust video production team and if you watch the video closely there is no struggle, one man lays his head down gently and there just seems to be something too produced about the film. But watch and see for yourself.
Is ISIS just trolling the world to get them to watch 18 minutes of their propaganda film just to see a short, highly produced beheading?
The name for the brutal mass execution is titled “And Allah will be sufficient for you against them”, and shows the execution of Free Syrian Army fighters. The entire video is 19 minutes. The first 17 minutes are propaganda with the last two minutes showing extremely graphic visual beheadings.
The video was filmed inside an ISIS-occupied area of Iraq. Two members of ISIS say in the video that they will not accept anything other than an ISIS-run state.
The video starts by saying, “In this video production is a presentation of some recorded scenes documenting the source of the program to train the sahwat vetted by America in Jordan under the wings of the Crusader coalition forces.”
“This is a small portion of what the sahwat left behind to become ghanimah in the hands of the Khilafah’s soldiers after they failed to advance on the city of Albu Kamal and their soldiers were either killed or driven out. And to Allah belongs all praise and favor.”
The “sahwat” are considered to be those who have abandoned religious belief. “Ghanimah” is the wealth that was taken during times of war.
Free Syrian Army troops can also be seen in the video performing Nazi/Roman salutes which shows their stance as being anti-Assad.
At the end of the video, ISIS members throw people of the Free Syrian Army to the ground and then behead them with small knives. Their heads are then placed on spears.
Here is the video. The beheadings occur at the last 30 seconds of their 19 minute propaganda film. You tell us – do you think it is fake?
