A new video released on Saturday, January 30 by the Islamic State group in Iraq shows a French-speaking militant executing five men accused of being US spies. According to AFP, the militant also reportedly threatened attacks against Western countries.
The video, which was posted on several jihadi websites, shows young men admitting to have acted against ISIS militants before being shot dead. The video was produced by the ISIS media office in Iraq’s Nineveh province and was reportedly made after the Paris attack.
In the eight-minute video, the French-speaking militant, who is seen wearing a beige mask and carrying a handgun, brands the U.S.-led coalition fighting ISIS in Syria and Iraq “imbecile miscreants” and warns that the efforts by Western nations will fail to destroy the group.
The militant also vowed that ISIS will conduct more deadly attacks against the West. Among the Western nations, the militant made a reference to Spain, saying that the country will “pay dearly” for having crushed Muslim rule in ancient Andalusia — more than 500 years ago.
At the end of the video, the French-speaking militant and other ISIS fighters shoot dead five men wearing orange jumpsuits.
