PHOTOS: New ISIS Execution Video From Mosul Comes Out During Coalition Siege
In screenshots from a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled "Deterring the Hirelings 2," ISIS militants execute members of the Mosul Brigade. The video was released as the retaking of Mosul by the American coalition begins. The video may perhaps be the last ISIS propaganda film to come out of the Iraqi capital. Two days ago, conflicting reports came in that the American coalition, consisting of the Iraqi Army, the Kurdish Peshmerga, Shia militias, Christian militias, and the Turkish Nineveh Guard, had descended upon Mosul to free it from the Islamic State.
It was later confirmed to be true by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, reports the BBC.
Mosul is the last major ISIS-held city in Iraq. It fell to the terrorist organization in June 2014.
Because of the current dynamics in Mosul, this may be the last Islamic State propaganda film to come from the city.
