Nearly nineteen minute video released from North Baghdad made up of sections of video files shown in a postcard type storyboard up to recent times including VBIED attacks. Executions feature as most of the content of second half of the release showing the victims in military uniforms or in post of public office along with the building in rubble.
Note – bottom left hand corner of the frame below you can see the clip layer which is being used as audio.This is why “detach audio” exists. Very rare to see this error.

Eleven minute video which has some resemblance to the series “Harvest of the Soldiers” (tangentcode). The title is Quranic verse 9:5 (here) and is used in this context to align roadside bombs and night attacks on passing traffic as combative counter actions. Roadside explosives are shown being made and ultimately detonated, some successful others not.
The video contains a number of executions which are rough and amateurish and void of any district measure of impact aside from the brutality.
” when the sacred months are drawn away, slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them, and confine them, and lie in wait for them at every place of ambush. But if they repent, and perform the prayer, and pay the alms, then let them go their way; God is All-forgiving, All-compassionate.”
Fifteen minute release from Kirkuk which cycles through from Bush to Trump and the American – Kurdish coalition with a number of interesting details.
One of those details is the watch wearing assassins that kill soldiers in their beds.
Trump – “we should be arming the Kurdish”
Fifty five minute video Al Hayat released as a part three to the Flames Of War series. The English narration with its stylised nuances explains the history up to the present time of Islamic State.
The video with its slow motion RPG rocket firing is padded together with battle vision from previous releases, (for example the image below is seen in part three) together with production voice over audio and some off the shelf fire transitions add to the impact which the narrative attempts to impose.
The video ends with men digging a trench as English translations run over the lower third, the scene ends with their execution.
Nearly four minute videos made up of short transitions showing percentage statistics in an effort to convey an image of resilience or perhaps announcing the Islamic State are still an entity. This release may also be connected to the attack in Sweida, the Baath Party centre, and the executions in recent days of hostages with the intention of striking fear into the citizenry.
