PHOTOS: New ISIS Video Shows Men in Potato Sacks Beheaded by Militants in Damascus
In screenshots from a new video titled "The Bringers of Doom" purportedly released by the Islamic State from "Wilayat Dimashq," ISIS militants behead 5 "spies," allegedly with Ahrar al-Sham, held in gunnysacks. The video was released on ISIS terrorist channels on December 9 attached to the hashtag "Ahrar al-Sham." Ahrar al-Sham is short for Harakat Ahrar al-Sham al-Islamiyya and means "Islamic Movement of the Free People of the Levant" in Arabic. Ahrar al-Sham is a competing Sunni Islamist and Salafist group that is not only fighting against the Syrian regime, headed by Bashar al-Assad and supported by Russia, but also ISIS.
