Way of the Righteousness – Sayna

Forty-two minute video release from Islamic State Sinai which has a number of ‘stand out’ details.

The GoPro wearing fighter getting hit is one, (11.24)

The production is much the same as other Sinai releases but the one thing that sets this release apart are the audio errors in some of the multicamera edits. The firefights at a radio base with the hijacking of a tank, and also the roadblocks favouring the small mobile cells of fighters which dissolve back into the small villages and vast terrain. The attacks are not strategic or with any long term motivations, but a way of replenishing supplies, looting ammunition and taking prisoners for possible exchange or ransom showing the diversification of the fighter cells In one scene the old weapons the men carry are in contrast to the brand new webbing they have on. The video is a showcase for where the money went. 

The video has a number of executions and begins with the slaughter of a goat.
