ICC Note: As the Islamic State is engaged in a losing battle against the coalition forces in Iraq, it has released a new graphic video propagating their enduring caliphate and cruelty. The 40-minute long clip shows Christian executions, children being beaten, crucifixions and child soldiering. The video was reportedly released from an IS base in Syria. The video is entitled “Enduring Glory” and spreads the message of the group’s endurance despite the loss of territory.
10/31/2016 Iraq (Christian Post): A new propaganda video released by Islamic State shows Christians being killed, children being beaten up, women being executed, men being crucified and cubs of the “caliphate” executing captives under its brand of Sharia law.
Released on terrorist channels affiliated with the Islamic State, also known as IS, ISIS, ISIL or Daesh, the nearly 40-minute video comes as the Sunni group’s militants are fighting a losing battle to protect their Iraqi stronghold Mosul.
The video was apparently released from “Wilayat Raqqah,” the IS base in Syria, and shows Sharia law enforcement with clips of beheadings, floggings and executions, including those of Christians and women.
Titled “Enduring Glory” and re-posted by Heavy, the extremely graphic video seemingly seeks to portray the terror group’s endurance amid loss of territory. It shows its militants engaged in battles across the Middle East region.
About 30,000 troops from a broad coalition including the Kurdish peshmerga, the Iraqi army and special forces, Shia militias allied with Iran, U.S. warplanes and military advisers and Turkish forces positioned to the north of the city are involved in the battle against 6,000 ISIS fighters in and around Mosul.
The terror group uses brutal methods to torture and punish those who it considers to be its enemies, including Muslims who do not believe in its version of Islam. Christians and other minorities are among its main targets.
Earlier this month, a Syrian woman recounted horrifying details of how IS jihadis killed hundreds of children in her village and executed her son after he refused to deny his faith in Jesus Christ.
During an interview with the Southern California-based human rights group Roads of Success, Syrian mother Alice Assaf, who hails from the Damascus suburb of Adra al-Ummaliya, described how militants aligned with IS came into her town over two years ago and went on a ruthless and barbaric killing spree.
