The Islamic State (ISIS) reportedly beheaded a Libyan soldier in front of a group of six-year-olds for “educational purposes.” Supporters of ISIS posted the horrific pictures on social media.
Breitbart (h/t Mike F) The images show a prisoner dressed in bright orange led out to the center of a floor at a mosque in Derna. Masked men with guns line up against the wall behind the captive. Men dressed in black from head to toe force the helpless man, identified as Abdulnabi al-Shargawi, to his knees before one of the barbarians takes a knife to his neck. ISIS charged the man with apostasy, which is the abandonment of Islam.
After the terrorists chop off his head, another man holds up al-Shargawi’s head as the young children gather around the body. Their faces are stone cold. Sky 105 reported that the images “surprised many” since the children “were never shocked.” But it is possible this is not the first time they witnessed a gruesome execution. ISIS is known to hold public executions and force the public to witness it. Children are often shoved to the front while fathers hold their sons on their shoulders.
ISIS captured Derna, located on the Mediterranean Sea and 801 miles west of Tripoli, in October 2014. The terrorists retained full control of the port city by January 2015. Videos emerged of large crowds pledging “allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.” The terrorists control the government and education while police cars are plastered with the ISIS insignia.
“Derna today looks identical to Raqqa, the ISIS headquarters town in Syria,” explained former jihadi Noman Benotman, who now works for the Quilliam Foundation. “ISIS pose a serious threat in Libya. They are well on the way to creating an Islamic emirate in eastern Libya.”
MUSLM SAVAGES fighting for the Islamic State in Iraq have brutally murdered three gay men by throwing them from the top of a high building in front of a huge crowd of bloodthirsty onlookers.
UK Daily Mail Disturbing photographs of the atrocity – believed to have been taken place in ISIS’ stronghold Mosul.
In one chilling shot, a man wearing a blue tracksuit is seen being dangled over the edge of the building by his ankles by a leather-jacketed ISIS jihadi just moments away from letting him fall.
In the event the horrifically injured men are not killed upon impact with the ground, the baying crowd are encouraged to surge forward and stone them to death with a mass of rocks helpfully provided by the ISIS savages who organise the terror group’s sickening public executions.
In a sequence of images, some of which are far too brutal to publish, the jihadis are seen with the men on the roof of the building before dropping them to their deaths.
The building is approximately 100 feet tall, giving the condemned men several seconds of harrowing free-fall before impacting with the ground.
One particularly gruesome image a blindfolded man with a beard is seen tumbling backwards through the air as the bloodied and mangled corpses of his fellow victims lie below.
In a horrific reminder of the local support ISIS has mustered in Mosul, the audience gathered to watch the brutal murders is so large that several militants are deployed as crowd control.
It is far from the first time ISIS savages have murdered men they accused of being gay in this way. In fact the terror group regularly uses images of men being thrown from buildings in front of baying crowds in its sickening propaganda releases.
One particularity brutal twist is that many of the victims are not immediately killed by the fall. But as one might expect, ISIS has its own particularly barbaric contingency plan for such a circumstance.
The jihadis who organise the public executions always ensure there is a large pile of rocks on hand at the site, which the baying crowd are encouraged to use to stone any survivors to death.
This sickening twist on audience participation is believed to be why attendance at public murders is so high, with men and boys using motorbikes to travel from nearby villages for such events.
The crowds also usually contain groups of niqab-wearing women, who are granted special permission to leave their homes in order to witness the atrocities.
Bahy Hassan posted a video of a man stripped naked, dragged through the streets of Qena while being kicked and beaten with sticks by local men wearing traditional Egyptian galabeyas. Several onlookers are cheering and recording the savagery on their phones.
Egyptian Independent A witness said that the incident occurred a week ago as part of a quarrel between two families in the village of Al-Hugairat, and that the man now is now undergoing treatment in Qena General Hospital, Al-Masry Al-Youm reports.
Authorities say they were not aware of the incident nor did they mention any official investigations currently underway, demonstrating that in poor rural areas in Egypt, such as Qena, tribal and familial rule often run deeper than the government.
Security Director Adel Abdel Moneim said he was never notified of the incident. “I would have moved immediately,” he said, requesting the person who recorded the video to take him to the location for him to arrest the culprits of the crime.
Egyptian authorities have now criminally charged Reda el-Fouly with ‘inciting debauchery’ and ‘disrupting morality’ for her part in the racy video.
Reda is seen with her partner Wael Elsedeki in the Egyptian music video titled Sib Eddi (Hands Off) as she dances and sings in a series of low-cut outfits. The boyfriend is thought to have fled to Tunisia and is wanted by police along with a third suspect.
The ISIS news Agency Amaq just published a video showing an extensive fire which consumed the entire refinery of Baiji, the largest in Iraq, as battles took place following a series of car bombings on the last Iraqi army stationed at the Baiji refinery.
Shoebat Iraqi forces and the militias are still bombing with rockets and artillery shells trying to progress toward the refinery to take control of whats left of it still failing to break into the Baiji refinery which, as we see the great catastrophe, is all up in smoke.
Iraq’s Interior Ministry said government forces were able to “severely” attack IS members at the oil refinery, and that they had cleared the main road from the city to the refinery, according to Rudaw, a Kurdish news agency.
In the wake of the capture of the city of Palmyra (known in Arabic as Tadmur), the Islamic State has begun releasing media from the region, including photos of executions and two videos from the area.
Long War Journal According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), the Islamic State has executed “no less than 17 people in Tadmur city.” Those executed, according to the SOHR, included National Defense Force personnel, Syrian Army soldiers, and locals whom the Islamic State accused of working with the regime.
Photos have emerged that seem to confirm this reporting, The photos show roughly seven beheaded bodies laying in a street in the city.
The Islamic State has also released two videos (below) from the area through its unofficial news agency, ‘Amaq News. The first video shows several Islamic State fighters clearing buildings that were used by Syrian soldiers. The jihadists also showcase captured weapons and desecrate pictures of Hafiz and Bashar al Assad.
In the second video, the Islamic State features footage of the captured prison while other scenes show its fighters driving through the streets of Tadmur. Other footage shows local residents celebrating with Islamic State fighters.
Additional photos released by the jihadist group, which can be seen below, show at least two crashed helicopters, but it is unclear if they were downed in the fighting. Other images show the hospital in Tadmur, the gate to the city, and the Tadmur airport.
The Islamic State took full control of the city over the past 24 hours after a weeklong offensive. Syrian troops began evacuating civilians yesterday before withdrawing in the face of the jihadist group’s onslaught.
At least 462 civilians, 241 government troops, and 150 Islamic State fighters were killed in the fighting in and around Palmyra since May 13, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The jihadist group also took over several nearby towns and the Jazal oil field.
The Islamic State (ISIS) used two French suicide bombers in a coordinated assault on the western Iraqi town of Haditha. One of the bombers has been featured in the past in an Islamic State propaganda film calling for more French recruits.
Long War Journal The two French have made ”dozens of deaths” according to the propaganda of the Islamic state .Abu Maryam Al-Faransi (Kevin Chassin) and Abu Abdul Aziz Al-Faransi committed two suicide attacks against military objectives near Haditha, a town in western Iraq.
In the official martyrdom statement released by the Islamic State, the jihadist group said that Abu Maryam al Firansi “targeted a headquarters where the apostates gathered in the area of al Khasfa,” according to a translation of the statement by SITE Intelligence Group.
“He invoked Allah and wounded his steed amidst their gathering, leaving dozens killed and wounded, and turning their structures into rubble…” the statement continued. The Islamic State said that the other French suicide bomber, Abu Abdul Aziz al Firansi, “followed him with a second truck, to target barracks of the apostates.”
One of the two men named Kevin Chassin (Abu Maryam), as researcher and consultant on Islamist Romain Caillet questions. This young Toulouse had grown up in the city Bourbaki. Coming from a non-Muslim family, he converted before radicalized and join the ranks of the Islamic state.
Abu Maryam al Firansi was previously featured in an Islamic State propaganda video that was released late last year. The video (below) promoted three French fighters of the Islamic State who burned their passports and called for French Muslims to wage jihad. In another part of the video, Abu Maryam threatened France by saying Islamic State “fighters will not hesitate to chop off the heads of the enemies of Islam if the French government continues bombing Iraq and Syria.”
LeFigaro The family of Kevin Chassin Saturday received a strange phone call. His half-brother Brice was called by a jihadist from the Islamic state. It was announced that Kevin, aka Abu Mariam, was far one of the two leading French Friday kamikaze attacks against Iraqi military targets in Anbar province, says La Depeche du Midi .
In the process, the young man received a photo of his brother Kevin smiling, the index pointing to the sky, just before boarding a truck. Soon after, the young man rushed the vehicle loaded with two tons of explosives against an Iraqi military base. “From what I was told his friend, May 17, he recorded a video where he apologizes to his parents,” says Brice to Depeche du Midi.
The young man lives north of Toulouse, near the city Bourbaki where Kevin grew up. Two months earlier, he had learned that his older brother had left Syria for Iraq. “He said he had an ongoing project but it was useless to ask him questions. He always answered: I can not tell you about it, “he said to the newspaper.Recently, Brice said that Kevin had obtained a 10 day holiday in a palace of Mosul. A trip that takes today looks like a last journey.
In the French video below, the brother of Kevin Chassin speaks about the phone call he got from ISIS:
The Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group said in an online statement that “the soldiers of the Caliphate” were behind the attack by a suicide bomber “who detonated an explosives belt” in the mosque in the Shiite-majority city of Qatif. It identified the bomber as Abu Amer al-Najdi, and published a picture of him.
Dawn A suicide bomber detonated an explosives vest during Friday weekly prayers at a Shia mosque in eastern Saudi Arabia, killing 20 people and wounding several others, a hospital official said. The official reached by telephone said more than 50 other people were wounded, including some who are in serious condition.
The kingdom’s Eastern Province has been hit by previous attempts by extremists to foment sectarian tensions with its large Shia community, including a deadly shooting in November.
The interior ministry said a suicide bomber detonated a bomb at the mosque in Shia-majority Qatif, SPA news agency reported. “An individual detonated a bomb he was wearing under his clothes during Friday prayers at Ali Ibn Abi Taleb mosque in Kudeih in Qatif province,” the ministry spokesman said in a statement.
Qatif hospital issued an urgent call for blood donations after the attack and called in off-duty staff to cope with the high number of casualties, the activist said.
Naseema Assada, a resident of Qatif, said worshippers were celebrating the birth of revered Imam Hussein when the blast occurred. “The people are very angry,” she said, adding that they tried to stop police from entering the Kudeih area.
Residents had feared such an attack was coming, she said, because the government was failing to curb hate speech on social media against the Shia community.
“We don’t want a repeat of what is happening in Syria or Iraq here. This is our country and we love it. “The mufti of Saudi Arabia, the highest-ranking Sunni cleric, denounced the attack in a statement broadcast on state television. “It is a criminal act aimed at dividing the sons of the nation… and at sowing trouble in our country,” he said.
Islamic State (ISIS) terrorist group has released a video which shows the brutal beating of fellow jihadists for smoking cigarettes.
Raqqa-sl ISIS prohibits smoking under strict Islamic rules. The militant group has burned millions of cigarette packs in Iraq and Syria to enforce the ban on smoking. Anti-ISIS group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently head Abu Mohammad Hussam described the punishment to The Independent. “The first time he will be arrested and flogged (40 lashes). If he smokes again, he will be whipped and imprisoned.
Malaysia and Indonesia will take in the Muslim boat people but only for one year. After that, they have to be repatriated back where they came from or dumped into Western countries.
Hey, Ms. CNN Reporter, if you feel so sorry for them, why don’t you take some of them into your home?
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has slammed Egypt for sentencing the ousted president to death, saying the country was returning to the “old Egypt.”
“Old Egypt” as in before Islam? Sounds like a plan! Erdogan buddy, Barack Hussein Obama, also is “deeply concerned” about an Egyptian court decision to seek the death penalty for former President Mohamed Morsi, a State Department official said on Sunday.
It was just a year ago, before he was elected president by an overwhelming majority of the Egyptian people, that Abdel Fattah el-Sisi vowed to finish off the Muslim Brotherhood once and for all. Looks like he’s making good on his promise.
An Egyptian court has sentenced former President Mohammed Morsi to death in connection with a mass jail break in 2011. Sitting in a caged dock, Morsi pumped his fists in the air in defiance as the judge read his verdict.
SKY News The Muslim Brotherhood denounced the sentence as politically motivated and calls on the international community to stop it.
Another 105 members of the Muslim Brotherhood were also given the capital punishment. The defendants were accused of plotting jailbreaks and attacks on police during the uprising that overthrew longtime President Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
The cases, like any capital sentence, will be referred to Egypt’s top religious authority, the Grand Mufti, for his non-binding opinion before any executions can take place.
Morsi, however, was spared the death sentence by the court on charges that he and his aides passed state secrets to foreign groups, including Palestinians’ Hamas and Lebanon’s Hizbollah, to destabilise Egypt. But the court sought capital punishment for Brotherhood leader Khairat el-Shater and 15 others for conspiring with foreign militant groups against Egypt.
Muslim Brotherhood official Amr Darrag has condemned the ruling as politically-motivated and called on the international community to take action.
“This is a political verdict and represents a murder crime that is about to be committed, and it should be stopped by the international community,” Mr Darrag told Reuters in Istanbul.
Morsi is already serving a 20-year sentence following his conviction on 21 April on charges linked to the killing of protesters outside a Cairo presidential palace in December 2012.
He became Egypt’s first freely-elected leader in June 2012 in the wake of the uprising that ousted Mubarak. But he was removed from power by the army in 2013 after protests against his presidency.
Sky’s Middle East Correspondent Sherine Tadros said the verdict is significant because it marks the first time in Egypt’s history that a president has been sentenced to death. “Of course Mohammed Morsi will appeal this verdict, it will be a lengthy appeal, so don’t expect he will be executed any time soon,” she added.
The army chief who overthrew Morsi, Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, is now president after having won elections last year. He has taken several steps to totally eradicate the terror-linked Muslim Brotherhood, once the largest political movement in the country.
Human rights groups have accused Egyptian authorities of widespread abuses in a crackdown on Brotherhood supporters as well as secular activists, allegations they deny.
The months-long fight for the key central Iraqi city of Ramadi now appears to be going ISIS‘s way, with the Islamic terrorist group capturing police headquarters, the Ramadi Great Mosque and even raising its trademark black flag over the provincial government building.
CNN The ISIS push began Thursday, with armored bulldozers and at least 10 suicide bombings used to burst through gates and blast through walls in Ramadi, according to a security source who has since left the city. Dozens of militants followed them into the city center.
Anbar Gov. Suhaib Al-Rawi said the offensive, including suicide-attacks with explosive-rigged cars near security posts, continued into Friday.
Iraqi and allied forces fought back, with state-run Al-Iraqiya TV reporting at least eight coalition airstrikes on ISIS positions and Iraqi helicopters active in support of ground troops. At least 47 Iraqi security forces and 26 civilians were killed in the fighting on Friday, according to two security sources.
Ramadi has been hotly contested between the Islamic State and Iraqi forces for months, displacing at least 114,000 people from the area, according to the Iraqi government and United Nations estimates.
Offering Washington’s take on what’s happening, a U.S. official said Ramadi “remains very fluid.” The official characterized the situation as “50/50,” with Iraqi forces in control of much of the city center and ISIS in the suburbs surrounding it.
“There will be good days and bad days in Iraq,” State Department acting deputy spokesman Jeff Rathke said. ISIS “is trying to make today a bad day in Ramadi.” (Looks like they are succeeding)
He added: “We continue to provide targeted air support in ISIL-held and contested areas, and that includes numerous airstrikes in Ramadi today.”
The violence marks the latest in the tug-of-war for Ramadi. That city is just a few miles from an Iraqi army headquarters that ISIS blew up in March, and it’s also just 70 miles (113 kilometers) west of Baghdad and in the middle of Iraq’s Sunni Muslim heartland.
