In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State of Afghanistan, AKA “Wilayat Khurasan,” one man is beheaded and two are executed before a suicide bomber detonates in an army outpost. The video is titled “Khorasan,The Graveyard of Murtadeen.” “Khurasan” is a Daesh occupied “province” announced in January 2015 that includes areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan. According to Islamic Basics, a “murtadeen” is an apostate, or someone who willfully leaves Islam.
In the video, various jihadist military footage is shown before the video cuts to a beheading and execution scene somewhere in the mountains of Afghanistan or Pakistan. One man is beheaded and two men are shot point blank in the back of the head. Later, a suicide bomber says goodbye to his fellow ISIS militants before driving a vehicle-borne improvised explosive device (VBIED) into what appears to be an Afghan National Army outpost.
