Yesterday several videos of the execution of three men in the North Eastern city ar-Raqqa, Syria, were released on YouTube.
Analysis of the video was already made by @Brown_Moses
What follows is a translation of the video, shot from two angles.
This first video seems to be filmed by a guy just passing by, getting interested in what is going on.
The second recording is far more professional and even carries the logo of the Islamic State in Iraq and as-Sham
Highlights of the translation:
Thanks to Allah, Lord of all mankind, and peace and blessings on leader of all fighters, all combatants, our Prophet, his family, companions, and all those who follow him with kindness till the day of judgement.
Allah The Almighty says:
Qur’an, Sura at-Tawbah, 9, verse 14
Fight them; Allah will punish them by your hands and will disgrace them and give you victory over them and satisfy the breasts of a believing people.
The crimes committed by the tyrant Bashar, are still on the rise day after day, and he is showing most torture and harassment to People of the Sunnah.
He didn’t differentiate between children or woman, young men or elderly, with the hands of his troops and his criminal Shabihas, of the Alawites sect, and those of the Sunni Apostates (reverts), and their allies.
And not last of their atrocities committed in Banyas, And our answer to their crimes committed, and in revenge to the Free women of Banyas and Homs and doing with what The Almighty said:
فمن إعتدي عليكم ……
Qur’an, al-Baqarah, Sura 2, verse 194
… and whoever wrongs you, wrong him in a similar way …
And so with our intention to get closer to God Almighty (Allah), with those coward Alawites, so I ask Allah, The Great, to accept our and your deeds.
And we ask the Almighty to grant his peace and blessings upon his prophet, Muhammed, his family and companions.
The Islamic state of Iraq and Sham.
Other proof of ISIS was already shown in video’s like this one, posted on YouTube on April 25th:
Yet, these executions, in front of the banner of al-Qaeda in Iraq, seem to confirm what was known for over a month; Jabhat an-Nusra is no less than the Syrian branch of al-Qaeda in Iraq. ISI, the Islamic State in Iraq can be called ISIS from now on, the Islamic State in Iraq and as-Sham.
