DAMASCUS, SYRIA (1:30 A.M.) – In its latest propaganda video, the Islamic State promoted an Australian volunteer nicknamed Abu Yousef who seemingly joined the caliphate to become a part-time doctor, part-time militant.

The Australian convert was shown in front of badly injured children whom had suffered lethal injuries due to an ongoing US-led coalition bombing campaign on the city of Raqqa.

Later in the disturbing video, the ISIS member called on foreign supporters to either join the Islamic State’s mainland in Iraq and Syria or aid the jihadist cause in other ways.

The video is highly graphic and depicts children with third-degree burns, some of which were caused by incendiary American airstrikes. Viewer discretion is advised:

According to the ISIS-linked Amaq Agency, around 200 civilians in Raqqa have fallen casualties to American bombs over the past week alone.

The terror group claims its capital is being targeted by indiscriminate air raids while the Pentagon insists it only conducts pinpoint sorties.

Exactly like Nusra did in Aleppo? l**o! Population isn’t blocked in the city by SDF! These rascals in IS use them as human shields for their propaganda purposes. Anyway, for ANYTHING war-related, as soon as children are shown, don’t look further, this is propaganda! It’s a DUTY for fighters to put civilians out of harm’s way and the city’s not surrounded by hordes of blood thirsty Daeshians. Forcing civilians to stay is a WAR CRIME! You should read the Hague convention one of these days 😉 Strange, you ain’t saying anymore that SDF=IS. I’ve found someone who doesn’t agrees :… Read more »

These people are no victims they gave their body and loyalty to IS when it was high.
Now they complain – like the Fascists did when WW II returned to Germany in 1945.

The MSM seems keen to have us believe that this b*****d is actually talking in SYRIA + that he has survived the conflict there… but he was actually last seen participating in a nude gay pride bike ride in the West coast USA… now his handlers are trying to shame Muslims into joining their fake jihad elsewhere… https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10208292868658599
