ISIS News Update: The terrorist group is at war against the United Kingdom (UK), and on Sunday, the extremist group released another gruesome video showing five men in orange jumpsuits being killed with a shot to the head.
According to a report from the AFP, the five men recently executed were said to have been “spies” working for the British government, as the country continues to participate in an international coalition that combats the Islamic State group in both Iraq and Syria.
In the video, one militant had said that those fighting “under the banner of Cameron” should ask themselves what would happen to them should they get captured by ISIS. In response to the release of the video, the British foreign office had simply issued a brief statement, saying, “We are aware of the video and are examining the content.”
At the same time, the video also targets British Prime Minister David Cameron. Speaking to the camera, the masked gunman refers to Cameron as both an imbecile and a “slave of the White House.” Moreover, the gunman had also claimed that the video itself is a message to the British Prime Minister, telling him that he (and his allies) “will lose this war, as you lost in Iraq and Afghanistan.” Meanwhile, the gunman also had a message for “the people of Britain,” saying that ISIS shall “one day invade your land, where we will rule by the Shariah.”
The coalition has recently managed to successfully liberate the city of Ramadi in Iraq from ISIS and the Independent reports that Middle East analysts have since reported a sharp increase in propaganda videos released by the Islamic state. Meanwhile, this latest video reportedly ends with another trailer for another execution as well as a young child with a British accent who uttered, “We will kill the kuffar [non-believers] over there.”
ISIS is an international terrorist group responsible for the Paris attacks last 2015 and the execution of various journalists. They reportedly hate being called Daesh, and some media organizations have started calling them that. They are also referred to as ISIL.
