WATCH: ISIS Shares Video of Alleged US Airstrike in Mosul Neighborhood

Footage shared on Islamic State terrorist channels shows buildings in the Quds neighborhood of Mosul, Iraq in ruin, allegedly destroyed by American coalition airstrikes. The video was shared by ISIS on November 3 and it is claimed in a title screen prior to the footage to have been filmed on November 2.

We cannot independently verify any of this.

Two weeks ago, the American coalition, consisting of the Iraqi Army, the Kurdish Peshmerga, Shia militias, Christian militias, and the Turkish Nineveh Guard, descended upon Mosul to free it from the Islamic State. The official operation began on October 17 when it was announced by Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi.

Yesterday, Iraqi troops entered Mosul for the first time in two years. Mosul, Iraqi’s second largest city, fell to ISIS in June 2014. Fox News reports:

Tuesday’s battle opened up with Iraqi artillery, tank and machine gun fire on ISIS positions on the edge of Gogjali neighborhood, with the extremists responding with guided anti-tank missiles and small arms in an attempt to block the advance. Airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition supporting the operation added to the fire hitting the district.

At the same time as troops entered Mosul, Islamic State “caliph” Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi released an mp3 of a speech for his followers a rally cry to motivate the terrorist forces.

According to a partial translation by CNN, he says:

God’s enemies from the Jews, Christians, atheists, Shiites, apostates and all of the world’s infidels have dedicated their media, money, army and munitions to fight Muslims and jihadists in the State of Nineveh after they witnessed it become one of the bases of Islam and one of its minarets under the Caliphate.

Nineveh refers to “Wilayat Ninawa,” ISIS’ name for the occupied Nineveh Governorate of Iraq.

Al-Monitor further transcribes the speech into English:

Do not retreat… Holding your ground with honour is a thousand times easier than retreating in shame.

However, despite the rally cry, the numbers are against ISIS. CNN reports that there are about 5,000 ISIS militants in Mosul facing nearly 109,000 troops.

  1. The US gave plenty enough time for you and your Isis Muslim leaders to exscape and now you’re crying because you stayed there to help your buddies and your family turn over all of your Isis Muslim leaders

  2. this is kind of a too bad so sad moment considering all the kidnaps, rapes, tortures, murders, atrocities and terrorization people have seen in past daesh videos as well as eye witness reports and footage. . Personally I think they all deserve to be turned over to the Kurds with a good Yazidi backup. Their bastardization of the Koran has ruined any concept of it being understood as well as practiced by outside individuals. A brief quote from an article: “Considered infidels and heretics by ISIL, Yazidis have been subjected to genocide, says a United Nations human rights inquiry that confirmed systematic killings, sexual slavery and torture. The buying and selling of captured Yazidi women often happens in marketplaces where slaves as well as other goods are traded.” They are an abomination, I am not Islamic but I have studied religions and it i against the Koran every stinking thing they have done. The Koran outlaws slavery and I could go on but there is no reason and no sympathy or mercy in my heart.

    • I want to add that if they are alarmed at what the Americns did to them they are really gonna be shocked at what happens to them at the hands of the Russians and they deserve it. Any coward that suicide bombs innocent people deserve to feel the iron hand of Putin

      • nd yes, I realize they are two seperte places about 300 miles apart and in different countries but hey what does it matter? they started this, they wre a united front and pwers that be now intend to wipe them off the face of the earth as they deserve for what they hve supported and dne
