The Islamic State’s Al-Furqan Media purportedly puts out a couple of videos a week showcasing their terrorism throughout Iraq and Syria. Here are their videos from early May 2015.
The focus of this week’s Islamic State media blitz has been on Homs, Syria, where they have been trying to take over nearby checkpoints that enter and exit into adjacent Iraq. In doing this, they have been mainly battling Assad regime loyalist forces, one of whom’s decapitated head can be seen above.
By publishing these videos we are not supporting ISIS but are trying to inform the world about the violence and terror that is currently occurring in the Middle East by all belligerents involved. The Islamic State just happens to be the one with the cameras.
Viewer discretion is advised.

Along with the above videos, ISIS has released more of insight into day-to-day life inside Islamic State-occupied territory. Graphic video stills of two men executed by a giant sword were released by the Islamic State yesterday, too. You can view them here.
On May 2, ISIS released a video showing the execution of an alleged Iraqi spy. The video has since been scrubbed from the internet, but video stills can be viewed here.
On May 8, a new video was purportedly released by the Islamic State showing the execution of at least 10 Iraqi “spies” adorned in blue jumpsuits, not the traditional orange ones. You can view uncensored screengrabs here.
Again, by publishing these videos we are not supporting ISIS but are trying to inform the world about the violence and terror that is currently occurring in the Middle East by all belligerents involved. The Islamic State just happens to be the one with the cameras.
