In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “The Epic Battles of Constancy 3,” ISIS militants are shown on the attack in “Wilayat Dijlah,” Iraq and Syria. “Wilayat Dijlah” was one part of nine Syrian provinces claimed and subdivided by ISIS when they expanded from Iraq into Syria in April 2014. “Dijlah” means “Tigris” in Arabic.
The video begins with “historic” and recent battles out of the war torn Middle East.
Later in the video, a Western ISIS suicide bomber is introduced. International terrorism watchdog group Site Intel has identified the man as Abu Anwar al-Baljiki.
According to the group, al-Baljiki tells ISIS sympathizers in an interview before his August 9, 2016 attack that Muslims in Belgium, France, and Germany should not “fear death or love life.”
He then drives an armored VBIED (vehicle-borne improvised explosive device) into an Iraqi military compound in Qayyarah, Iraq.
