ISIS has released a new video, the title of which translates as “Defiant Response to the Bombing of Tyrants“. The video was reportedly filmed in Nineveh Governorate of Iraq.
The video starts with images of destruction apparently caused by aerial bombardment of areas under control of Islamic State. Aside from material damage to property, torn up remains of victims, including children are shown.
Later, a young man dressed up in an orange jumpsuit is shown being interrogated. He probably wasn’t a soldier, just some random, young guy who was unlucky enough to end up being captured. ISIS accused him of “dealing with the Iraqi army” and executed him “in retaliation for the strikes by the coalition.”
The execution was carried out by beheading by curved blade sword. In line with other professionally edited videos released by Islamic State, the moments leading to the execution are presented in slow motion, with dramatic images of masked gunmen standing guard, and the moment of beheading is partially censored out.
Props to Best Gore member Baby14 for the video:
