DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 A.M.) – On Monday, ISIS released a propaganda video showing the decapitation of an alleged Russian spy, warning others not to infiltrate its inner circles.

Petrenko Afghene was said to be a Russian intelligence captain within ISIS ranks, gathering information on the terror group and secretly leaking it back to the Kremlin.

Previously, the Russian spy had infiltrated other jihadist groups in Syria, Turkey and the Caucasus on behalf of Moscow. While inside Islamic State ranks, his main task was to befriend the late Omar Al-Shishani.

However, his cover was blown during the mission, prompting the Islamic State to behead him for propaganda purposes. In characteristic Islamic State fashion, the knife-wielding executioner was a countryman who also spoke in Russian.

The lengthy video can be seen here – viewer discretion is advised:

  1. Is the video “for educational purposes only”? What kind of education is this? Assuming that he was a spy of Russia really and helped you fight Islamic State, why You have published this? Do you want his family and friends watch it? Shame!

  2. “All members of the Russian armed forces in Syria are alive, in good health, and performing their duties in combating international terrorism as a part of their units,” it said in a statement. “The actions of certain media outlets spreading information from international terrorist groups should be condemned,” it added.
