French-Speaking Terrorist Executes in IS VideoFrench-Speaking Terrorist Executes in IS Video

The self-styled Islamic State militant group released a video on Saturday purporting to show a French-speaking terrorist threatening attacks against the West and executing so-called apostates and spies in Iraq.

The footage, posted on terrorist websites, is said to have been produced by the IS media office in Iraq’s Nineveh province, and shows young men testifying to have acted against the extremists before being shot dead execution style.

The French speaker wears a beige mask and military fatigues and carries a handgun. Curls of blond hair can be seen below his mask, AFP reported.

The French-speaking man brands the US-led coalition fighting IS in Syria and Iraq “imbecile miscreants” and warns that they will be unable to crush the extremist group.

He vows that IS will carry out acts that will make the West forget the September 11, 2001, attacks against the United States that killed nearly 3,000 people, or the Paris carnage.

The terrorist also vows that the West, particularly Spain, will “pay dearly” for having crushed Muslim rule in ancient Andalusia, in southern Spain where the Moors ruled from 711 AD to 1492.

At the end of the almost eight-minute video, the French speaker and other IS fighters shoot dead five kneeling men in orange jumpsuits.
