BEIRUT, LEBANON (8:50 P.M.) – Islamic State media has released an 18-minute propaganda video (below) showing ISIS forces engaging rebel fighters during the terrorist group’s March offensive in southern Damascus.
As with all ISIS videos, the footage shown is extremely violent, showing the aftermath of close quarter firefights and the beheading of captured enemy fighters.
The combat footage offers insight into the tactics used by Islamic State forces in the highly-urbanized terrain of southern Damascus. Here, terrorist snipers and machine gun teams are are seen suppressing enemy positions whilst infiltration troops (inghamasis) storm key buildings.
Also shown is the use of a huge vehicle bomb (or VBIED) by ISIS to neutralize a building full of Jaysh al-Islam fighters.
Al-Masdar News does not in any capacity support or sympathize with the actions or ideology of the so-called Islamic State terrorist group. The footage displayed in this article is done so only for educational purposes.
