In the latest ISIS news, a video by the Islamic States shows American men being slaughtered like lamb.
ISIS News: The Making of Illusion
The new video, titled “The Making of Illusion,” was allegedly released by the Islamic State. It came out on the first day of Eid al-Adha.
According to Heavy, Eid al-Adha was celebrated when Allah prohibited Abraham from sacrificing his son and instead gave him a lamb to slaughter. On September 12, the video was released from “Wilayat al-Khayr,” aka Deir ez-Zor area of Syria.
Beginning with a montage of a reported “spy” footage, the video stole from TV shows and movies. The scenes include what appears to be a clip of Simon Pegg from Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation.
After the montage, the video further shows past Islamic State executions and recent terrorist attacks conducted by them. The video flashes photos of the Eiffel Tower and the Bastille Day terror attack in Nice, France.
After this, the rest of the video shows extreme violence, in which men are having their throats slit. These men hang from meat hooks and were allegedly “U.S. spies.”
ISIS News: Islamic State Second-in-Command Killed
According to NBC News, it was confirmed by the Pentagon on Monday that a U.S. airstrike killed Islamic State’s second-in-command, Abu Muhammad al-Adnani. However, Russia earlier insisted that it was one of their planes that killed him last month.
The Islamic State has already commented that al-Adnani died in the August 30 strike in al-Bab, a province in Syria’s Aleppo. Second-in-command al-Adnani also acted as the terrorist group’s main spokesman.
Peter Cook, Pentagon press secretary, said on Monday that the United States’ airstrike particularly targeted al-Adnani and killed Islamic State’s “chief propagandist, recruiter and architect of external terrorist operations.”
On the other hand, Russia Defense Ministry said that al-Adnani was among the 40 Syrian rebels who were killed by a Russian Su-34 bomber in Aleppo.
