Following on the heels of a brutal ISIS video titled “The Making of Illusion” that showed 19 Syrians having their throats slit, ISIS has released another Eid al-Adha video titled “So Pray to Your Lord and Sacrifice to Him Alone.” The new video was released on September 16 and comes from “Wilayat al-Furat,” Iraq. Eid al-Adha celebrates when Allah stopped Abraham from sacrificing his son and gave him a lamb to slaughter instead.
According to the Terrorism Research & Analysis Consortium, “Wilayat al-Furat, also known as Wilayat Euphrates, is located north of Wilayat al-Anbar and borders Syria.”
Anbar is the westernmost Iraqi government province. Anbar is the largest Iraqi province and links the Iraq-Syria border directly to Baghdad. It contains the important cities of Ramadi, Hit, Haditha, and Rutba and has been an area of intense fighting.
The video begins on the battlefield, where ISIS militants are shown patrolling.
Later, a man is shown preaching to a group of squatting jihadists. Sheep are shown, but a man in an infamous, orange, “Guantanamo Bay” jumpsuit is brought out.
One of the ISIS militants then beheads him.
