A new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State alleges to show ISIS militants targeting Kurdish fighting forces in Sheikh Kif Village, Syria. The photo report was released on ISIS terrorist channels on December 1. An accompanying summary reads: "Targeting Positions of the #PKK Apostates in Sheikh Kif Village, North of the Industrial City." However, despite the claim of battle, opposing forces are never shown in the photo report and the entire set may be staged. Viewer discretion is advised.
