ISIS Murders Four Kurdish Soldiers in Revenge Video
So ISIS seems a little pissed off about the raid on the prison. Our hearts go out to the Kurds.
A video purportedly from ISIS surfaced online Friday and shows the terrorists beheading four Kurdish Peshmerga fighters in retaliation for the daring raid by U.S.-led coalition forces last week in northern Iraq.
At the end of the 15-minute video, a masked English-speaking man delivers a warning to U.S. President Barack Obama before he executes one of the prisoners, who is wearing an orange jumpsuit.
The three other prisoners are also seen being beheaded at the end of the video and Arabic text appears onscreen. It translates as "Peshmerga soldiers that Americans came down to rescue."
Earlier in the video, ISIS also claims to show the aftermath of the raid during which 70 hostages were rescued by Kurdish, U.S. and Iraqi forces from an ISIS prison in Hawija, in the northern Iraq province of Kirkuk.
Here is the English spoken bu the first killer to Obama. He sounds American to me. But he's not very eloquent, obviously reciting a prepared statement in a halting fashion. Despite his claims of "victory" it seems we made quite the mess for ISIS.
Obama you have learned a new lesson. Six of the soldiers of the Caliphate faced Four Hundred of your children. They killed and injured them by Allah's grace. You are probably surprised by this.This man then beheads the first prisoner as the other three are forced to watch. Its a as gruesome a beheading as I've witnessed.
Oh Crusader, it is the support of Allah.
You did not gain anything, you returned to your bases and with losses and humiliation. Obama you wage war against Allah, he supports us against you. It is the promise of Allah. Allah will never fail in his promise.
Then a warning in Arabic is given to the Kurds and the other three prisoners are beheaded. (screencap and video below the fold)
The video is available here by request.
(I'm not around to approve the requests so if you didn't get it by now, sorry.)
Its not clear if the following strike was before or after the video. But from the damage shown on the ground it may be after.
