ISIS fanatics have filmed themselves spray painting the top of a man’s head with black paint before shooting him dead in a sick execution video.
A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “Deterring the Hirelings 2” comes out as the retaking of Mosul by the American coalition begins. In the video, “spies” are mass executed by ISIS militants.
It may perhaps be the last ISIS propaganda film to come out of the Iraqi capital.
Last night, conflicting reports came in that the American coalition, consisting of the Iraqi Army, the Kurdish Peshmerga, Shia militias, Christian militias, and the Turkish Nineveh Guard, haddescended upon Mosul to free it from the Islamic State.
It was later confirmed to be true by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, reports the BBC.
Mosul is the last major ISIS-held city in Iraq. It fell to the terrorist organization in June 2014.
Because of the current dynamics in Mosul, this may be the last Islamic State propaganda film to come from the city.
In the video, ISIS rounds up these men, allegee “spies,” and execute them in front of their anti-Islamic State graffiti.
More men are then publicly executed as a large crowd watches.
WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT AHEAD
But while many may cower at videos like these, it’s important to realise that the release of them is to distract from the reality of ISIS rapidly losing territory and power.
