The video shows the UK journalist appearing to criticise the US led airstrikes against the militant group.

ISIS militants have tonight released a third propaganda video showing a British hostage.

During the clip, the journalist – who can be seen wearing an orange jumpsuit –  attacks the current airstrikes led by the US which are taking out ISIS sites.

The man – who was kidnapped in Syria in 2012  – also appears to attack plans to use Iraqis and Syrians to fight the militant group.

Talking about the US airstrikes, he says: “Air power is good at taking out specific targets but it is not much use a taking and holding ground.

“For that you need effective and disciplined troops and it is hard to see how this hotch-potch army with a long history of underperforming is going to be any form of credible infantry.”

The video is the third time the photo-journalist has appeared in an ISIS video.

A video lasting for almost six minutes and introduced with the title Lend Me Your Ears and Messages From The British Detainee appeared last week.

He said western governments “were caught napping by the sheer speed of the Islamic State’s growth” and have underestimated “the strength and fighting zeal of the opponent”.

He added: “Not since Vietnam have we witnessed such a potential mess in the making.”

The terror group has recently beheaded three hostages in gruesome videos, including the British aid worker David Haines. It has also threatened to kill Alan Henning, from Salford, next.

A first video surfaced showing the British reporter in a similar setting saying he would speak about IS in future videos.

All the videos appear to be well-produced, with good quality sound and lighting.
