BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:30 A.M.) – As Syrian Arab Army troops operating on the eastern bank of the Euphrates River in Deir Ezzor province continue to expand their zone of control throughout towns situated along the shoreline, unexpected items of the ISIS legacy in the region have begun to appear.

Footage (below) captured by Syrian troops has emerged on social media showing them clearing a building within a settlement located on the eastern bank of the Euphrates.

The video shows Syrian troops discovering a range of objects which are, technically,  outlawed under ISIS rule including a Ukrainian flag (non-ISIS flags are forbidden under Islamic State rule), cigarettes (supposedly forbidden to all who live under Islamic State rule) and flamboyant (riyaa) luxury home-wares.

The footage offers a look at the hypocrisies in which ISIS members were allowed to indulge during the three years of their uninterrupted rule throughout the region.

Daesh was nothing but a bunch of rag tag losers from all over the world who came together on the invitation by another loser who stood in a mosque and proclaimed himself Caliph and proclaimed to the whole world about implementing a pure form of Islam and every sucker who believed it joined it. A lot of foreigners came from Chechnia, Ukraine because they hate the Russians. Brits, Americans, Aussies, Far East countries Singapore, Malaysia, Uighurs, even Muslims from Pakistani, India and few more countries Sunnis who loved Daesh joined. There was so much of support from so many Sunnis… Read more »

I am not so sure the term ‘Special’ is relevant when describing the Ukranian Military 🙂

Perhaps the term ‘Spastic ‘ would better describe them. Especially after all the US training they have been given.

All is correct. This video is the production of Russian militants. Because it is easy for them to make a Ukrainian flag, but it was not easy to find Ukrainian cigarettes. Russia is a country – fake, the country is a liar. This is an aggressive, militant horde – the sponsor of all terrorists in Europe and Asia.
