Anbar, Iraq: After being driven out of Syrian cities of Palmyra and al-Qaryatain, the Islamic State has released a new propaganda video to spread terror among people.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, the undated footage has been shot in Anbar province in Iraq. The video shows Islamic State militants beheading their prisoners as they plead for mercy.
The militants are shown killing Iraqi soldiers and government officials in the video. It also shows how ISIS hurls bombs at civilians and government vehicles.
The video then moves forward to show an Iraqi official begging for his life before being brutally killed.
The number of Islamic State militants have recently dropped to the lowest level since the year 2014. The terror group has also witnessed a downfall in their caliphates, especially after Syrian army retook major cities from them.
The territories captured by ISIS in Iraq have dropped to nearly 40 per cent, an official was quoted as saying.
Last month, Barack Obama vowed to wipe out Islamic State and put an end to the war situation in Iraq and parts of Middle East.
