DAMASCUS, SYRIA (9:00 P.M.) – On Saturday (July 22nd), ISIS released a 50-minute propaganda video covering events in Deir Ezzor city where a garrison of Syrian troops have stood steadfast against a full-blown jihadist siege that began in 2014 when the Syrian Arab Army’s (SAA) supply line was definitely cutoff.

In addition to battle footage from the eastern city, the ISIS narrator blamed rival opposition groups and their spies as the main reason why Islamic State militants have failed to crush government forces. Rebel factions controlled most of Deir Ezzor from 2011 to 2014 before ISIS expelled them after a few months of clashes at the time.

During this jihadist infighting, both sides sustained thousands of casualties, thereby reducing the Islamic State’s fighting capabilities when the time came to defeat the SAA’s pocket.

The video covers much of the 2014 fighting, but was first released now for reasons unbeknownst to Al-Masdar News. Some of the footage is graphic and thus, viewer discretion is advised.

AMN condemns terrorism in any shape or form but contrary to the mainstream media insists on allowing its readership access to unfiltered information, regardless of the source.

‘…the ISIS narrator blamed rival opposition groups and their spies as the main reason why Islamic State militants have failed to crush government forces.’
Lies, it is because Allah wants them to die.
