On March 13, ISIS released a video documenting many of its recent attacks against government forces and civilians in the northern Iraqi province of Kirkuk.

The 30-minute video, titled “Victorious Over Their Enemies,” starts with footage from attacks by the terrorist group’s cells on two positions of the Popular Mobilization Units (PMU) and a post of the Iraqi Federal Police near the towns of Daquq, Rashad and Tuz Khurma.

The video also shows six ambushes by ISIS terrorists, who targeted vehicles of the PMU and the Iraqi military as well as civilians from the Shiite and Yarsanism sects.

A series of mortar attacks by ISIS cells were also shown in the video. The attacks were not limited to military sites, but also targeted civilian areas in Kirkuk. The attacks were apparently a form of ‘collective punishment’, especially for Sunni areas.

“From the Wilayah of Iraq, from Kirkuk to the apostates of Sunnah, Kurds and Arabs, how dare you, don’t you learn, every time getting tricked … Don’t you know that our swords are out, that our spears are up and that we now have the initiative … Don’t be the fuel of a lost battle, lengthening it with your filthy blood before we prevail, regret won’t help you then,” an unknown commander of ISIS said in the video warning Sunnis.

Besides regular attacks, the video contained graphic footage of ISIS terrorists executing fourteen Iraqis. The victims were a policeman, five PMU fighters, two pro-government tribal fighters, a Kurdish Peshmerga personal and five Sunni civilians.

ISIS concluded its video with footage from a horrendous attack that targeted a football field in Kirkuk. Several young men were executed on spot after being captured, simply because they were Shiite.

None of the attacks shown in the video were dated by the terrorist group. However, observers said all the attacks took place in 2019.

The video is clearly meant to threaten ISIS foes in Kirkuk, especially local Sunnis supporting the government. The group attempted to showcase its presence in the province as “strong”. Likely, the group hopes to involve some locals to join its ranks.

      • Ed

        Err no. I would have SouthFront STOP relying on bullshit propaganda claims from terrorist groups for their news stories actually.

        • Toni Liu

          Dont too harsh, they just put all this to make sure we know this shithead still active and we must be careful about that especially iraqi people so they can put more attention to clear that area from these growing threat ASAP

  • good american

    US death squads.

      This is what happens when CENTCOM kills Iraqi PMU soldiers in order to protect the U.S./Israeli-owned K1 pumping station on the U.S./Israeli-owned Kirkuk-Haifa pipeline. The Shia are simply the best motivated and – by far – the most effective ground force for containing and killing U.S.-backed Wahhabi head-choppers. Piss off the PMU at your own peril, Israeli Foreign Legion (CENTCOM) commanders. Your f’king head-choppers are going to attack MY soldiers you’re using to guard the Blood-for-Oil Pipeline. Get them the fuck out of Iraq, you extra-chromosome Israeli fellators, and obey the U.S. constitution. Either that, or piss in your pants crying like a little girl in front of a military firing squad once you’re court martial is over. Your call, I guess…

  • You can call me Al

    Handy timing hey ?, the US are getting a battering so they send out their goons again. I honestly despise the Yanks.

    • JIMI JAMES

      Yeah but which goons?

  • cechas vodobenikov

    CIA in disguise and/or CIA funded

  • ‘Terrorist’ is a really hackneyed word these days, and generally just means ‘the enemy’.

    In the case of ISIS tho, everyone is in agreement. If theyre not terrorists, nobody is.

  • igybundy

    Guess US did not have much luck even with such attacks against the PMU using ISIS so instead intervened directly with their air force.

  • Yasir Khan

    they are all from mid 2019 JSUK.
