Video From ISIS Member’s Helmet Camera Shows Grim Reality Of Terrorist Fighters

Contrary to the terrorist group’s propaganda, the video shows its fighters panicking in the middle of battle.

The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) is a terrorist group led by Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It has taken over territories in Syria, western Iraq, Libya, and northeast Nigeria.

In his 2015 article in The Atlantic, “What Isis Really Wants,” journalist Graeme Wood writes, “Our ignorance of the Islamic State is in some ways understandable: It is a hermit kingdom; few have gone there and returned.” He went on to say, “We can gather that their state rejects peace as a matter of principle; that it hungers for genocide; that its religious views make it constitutionally incapable of certain types of change, even if that change might ensure its survival; and that it considers itself a harbinger of — and headline player in — the imminent end of the world.”

ISIS propaganda has always presented its members as tireless combatants who don’t flinch in the face of danger. At least, that’s what the organization wants us all to believe.

However, footage from a helmet camera worn by a member of the terrorist organization may prove that these terrorists are all too human. They’re brutal, but that doesn’t mean that they’re invincible.

Vice News obtained a copy of a video that was taken during the terrorist’s final battle with Kurdish Peshmerga troops sometime in March 2016. The encounter was said to have taken place around 30 miles north of the Iraqi city of Mosul.

The video begins with one of the fighters facing the camera and talking about martyrdom being “the nearest way to paradise.” Later on, the man and his fellow combatants panic as the battle intensifies. At some point, they even blame the guy named “Abu Hajaar” for making mistakes.

It’s painful to watch.

Watch the video and see for yourself how they dealt with their less-than-ideal situation. Towards the end, the man with the helmet camera is shot and screams. The video ends shortly after his fall.

As Vice News indicated, “Unlike ISIS propaganda, which often presents sweeping battlefield victories, the video shows chaos, panic, and the fighters retreating.”

Hackers Compromise Bangladesh Bank Security Due To Cheap Routers And No Firewall

This should serve as a reminder for financial institutions to tighten security solutions.

Last month, news about hackers attempting to steal from the Federal Reserve bank of Bangladesh made the rounds. These hackers targeted $1 billion from the bank account but only managed to successfully wire $80 million.

Investigators back then didn’t explain how the hackers managed to breach the bank’s security network.

But now, the truth is out and apparently, the hackers succeeded in their job because there was never a security solution from the bank. With the absence of this security solution, the hackers successfully stole $81 million and only a spelling error stopped the completion of wiring the rest of the amount.

Sicilian Mafia Cosa Nostra ‘Declares War’ on Refugees

Sicilian Mafia versus African criminal gangs.

Due to the influx of refugees in Italy, the Sicilian Mafia is fighting African gangs in a desperate move to maintain supremacy. They have now declared "war" against migrants.

Recently, a 21-year-old Gambian man was shot in the head by a local mobster. The incident took place in Ballaró, where the migrant population dramatically increased from five to 25% since the migrant crisis began. The vicious attack was an example of the violence gripping the island, and people fear that it will soon spiral out of control.

Kindhearted Man Uses An Excavator To Rescue A Trapped Fawn

Two videos show how a pair of fawns were rescued from sinking in the sludge at a construction site in Tacoma, Washington.

Bill Davis — a resident of Tacoma, Washington — checked on a construction site for his employer. He was quite surprised when he saw two young deers struggling in the sludge. To his horror, Davis realized that the two fawns were sinking.

Davis recalled, "I wouldn't have seen them if they hadn't moved and caught my eye!" He then added, "It broke my heart to see this!"

Indeed, the animals were covered in mud and had practically blended into the sludge. They must have been struggling to get out of it for some time as they already looked exhausted by the time Davis came along.
