WATCH: John Cantlie Featured in New ISIS Video From Mosul

British hostage John Cantlie is featured in the latest propaganda video purportedly released by the Islamic State focusing on coalition airstrikes on Mosul, Iraq. Cantlie was last seen in an ISIS video released this past July.

In the video, Cantlie discusses power and water infrastructure as well as a coalition airstrike on the last bridge in Mosul.

Cantlie has previous appeared in ISIS videos in Iraq and Syria. His last few videos, however, have been out of Mosul. His last narration was released in July, with another video focusing on airstrikes in Mosul released in March.

He has now been seen in no less than eight ISIS propaganda videos. However, he is looking hairier and thinner in this video than his last.

According to the BBC, Cantlie, whose work has appeared in the Sunday Times, the Sun, and the Sunday Telegraph, has been held hostage twice in Syria. He escaped from his first kidnapping in July 2012 with help from the Free Syrian Army.

He was kidnapped again after he returned to Syria at the end of 2012. It is believed he was kidnapped his second time with American journalist James Foley, who was beheaded on video by the Islamic State militant “Jihadi John” in August 2014.

In an April issue of the Islamic State Dabiq magazine, an article allegedly written by Cantlie shares Foley’s “last words.” Read it here.

  1. You see, Allaah tells us in his Noble Qur’aan that when the enemies speak hatred against Islaam on their tongues, in their hearts is much worse. History always repeats itself. The return of the Khilafah is a prophecy made by Prophet Muhammad ( Piece and Blessing be Upon Him) over 1,400 years ago. Just like the 100’s of many other prophecies that came miraculously true!!! This prophecy is still going to happen it’s just a matter of time. What’s going on now in the Muslim world is an advantage for us Muslims. One might think ‘How could this be, since a lot of killings are occuring against muslims’. But these killings only wake up the other 1 Billion sleeping Muslims and gets them closer to Allaah, and stop repelling, sinning and chasing their desires. The Muslims will the come to their senses and start to follow Allaah’s commands, and WHEN that happens! The Kilafah of al-Mahdi will be established. So just wait and see! NOTE: read the miracles and prophecies of the Prophet Muhammad (piece be upon him) signs of the day of Judgement

    • Funny i can’t find one prophecy in the Quran, better stick with “messenger” also could not find any topics about “Love” either, in 1400 years there should have been something about it somewhere, truth is only Free individuals are allowed to find out if my words are true or not, if you’re muslim you’re best to ignore my statement and call me Kufar -kafir instead of looking for yourself and proving me wrong.

      • And so you turn turn to dirt. Then get resurrected then you burn in he’ll. While the believers go to paradise. Its people like you with arrogance that give hell it’s existance

    • You are a lemming doing the bidding of leaders that take advantage of you. They do not strap on suicide vests’ they do not abstain from women or alcohol. They open Swiss bank accounts and siphon money to them. The create misery for the average Muslim by relying on ignorance. You are a fool. If Allah was Akbar, Mosul and Raqqa wouldn’t be the shitholes they are now.

  2. I know the psychology they are attempting to be used, they are weak and losing so if they try to show that we are attacking everyday !Muslims who aren’t Islamic State we care about no Muslims and they all should rise to fight for their religious beliefs. Couldn’t be further from the truth, we would never be bombing everyday Muslims but they believe thid due to what they are told. Less than 1% are terrorist so obviously they don’t agree with you. You force religion, genocide and most likely had a gun and knife ready if they didnt Like what the interviewee is saying. Only reason we invented Islamic State wass to off Assad but they couldn’t even handle that, so now there is a new Sheriff in town and lets say he is Trump Tight with weapons and not scared to use them

  3. Fuking ISIS pussy holes…You think y
    ou’re getting a reward when you die you devil workers get maced and packed from hittas in the sky you fukin vermin…And What…#Ruthlessness
