The last video release by the Islamic State on the first day of ‘Eid al-Fitr at first looked like just another propaganda movie. The “usual” videos made up of about 80% of the already uploaded material.
We witness battle, drive-by shootings, the massive destruction of Shi’a tombs and / or mosques, da’wah meetings and at the very end, when you least suspect it mass executions. A whole caravan was led to their execution place, shot in the head and dumped in the river
I summarized on Twitter :
In short: battle, parades, drive by shootings, destruction of Shi’a tombs and above all executions Last 2 minutes made me think of Khmer Rouge
Another tweet referring to the matter by @Mario_Greenly :
The killing fields of the Islamic State in Iraq
Video: (very graphic)
Source: all official Islamic State Twitter accounts shared this. All videos were deleted. Aaron Zelin’s archive however is as accurate as ever. See here
