A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “So Take Warning” shows a Free Syrian Army militant being brutally executed in “Wilayat Halab,” aka Aleppo, Syria. The video was released on September 18 on ISIS terrorist channels.

International terrorism watchdog group Terror Monitor has confirmed the identity of the man as Field Commander Ahmad Musa al-Hussein of the Free Syrian Army Hamza Division.

The video begins with a montage of imagery representing Turkey, Syria, and the United States. Focus is centered on Recep Tayyip Erdogan, President of Turkey. Turkey invaded Syria in late August.

FSA Field Commander al-Hussein is then interviewed. He wears an orange, “Guantanamo Bay” boilersuit like a majority of ISIS captives.

The Free Syrian Army was founded in July 2011 as one of the first factions in the burgeoning Syrian Civil War. It was founded by Syrian Armed Forces who turned their backs on Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad, and said that their mission was to see Assad be brought down.

The group eventually took a jihadist turn, and as of 2016 the Free Syrian Army “does not denote any form of coherent organization, but rather has become a promotional label which militia factions in the Syrian Civil War arbitrarily use or reject.”

In the interview portion of the video, al-Hussein refers the “rafidi.” Rafidi is a derogatory term for Shia Muslims used by Sunnis. It means “rejectors” because Shia Muslims believe in a different line of successorship for Islam following the death of its founder, Muhammad.

Rafidi is often used by ISIS to refer to “Iran” as a whole as Iran is majority Shia or for the Shia-backed government of Iraq.

al-Hussein repeatedly mentions Iran in the interview. Both the government of Bashar al-Assad and Iran are Shia.

Later, al-Hussein is taken to a pole and chained to it. An ISIS militant fires a machine gun at him and then beheads him.

  1. you might be able to contrast egyptian ancient religions with the desires of a failed christian religon if their is a general knowledge of it in the Millitant frame.

    this looks very detached, a strong reserve of ammunition usage, layering close to management, but one of the final buffers to management, you can tell because his eyes are so close to the camera,,,its sacrifical meat for the leadership system

  2. Why behead the guy when you’ve just riddled him with machine gun fire? I haven’t watched the video as I can’t witness their savagery anymore…

  3. These videos are grotesque. If you agree that these videos should not be hosted in full on this website join me at @end_of_daesh.
