In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State, three soldiers in “Wilayat al-Barqah,” Libya are executed by ISIS militants. The video was released on ISIS terrorist channels on May 9 and is titled “So Fight Against the Allies of Satan.”
Wilayat al-Barqah is one of three Islamic State “wilayats,” or “provinces,” announced in Libya on November 13, 2014, along with Wilayat al-Tarabulus and Wilayat al-Fizan. Wilayat al-Barqah contains the city of Benghazi, the site of the September 11, 2012 attack on an American compound that left U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and U.S. Foreign Service Information Management Officer Sean Smith dead.
In the new video, three men are introduced in orange, “Guantanamo Bay” jumpsuits. They are all interviewed. The first two men are executed while the last is beheaded. The Islamic State has been ramping up its interest in the African nation, which is a cause for concern due to its proximity to Europe. In fact, The New York Times reports that ISIS intends to make Sirte, a Mediterranean city in Libya, a back-up capital for the Islamic State in case Raqqa, Syria falls to the coalition.
