BEIRUT, LEBANON (1:20 P.M.) – The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) terrorist group released a new video over the weekend that showed their fighters executing several people in eastern Iraq.
In the new propaganda video, the Islamic State terrorists execute several militiamen and village chiefs that are accused of passing information to the Iraqi security forces regarding the terrorist group’s activities.
“Stop killing the Mujahedeen and do not get involved in a fight doomed to defeat,” one of the terrorist combatants says in the video.
The terrorist group allegedly carried out these executions inside the Diyala Governorate of eastern Iraq.
Despite losing all of their territory in Iraq, the Islamic State still maintains several sleeper cells that carry out ambushes and kidnappings across the country.
The Iraqi security forces and Kurdish-led Peshmerga have carried out several operations to clear these sleeper cells over the last six months; however, the terrorist group continues to emerge in many parts of the country.
