What It’s Really Like to Fight for the Islamic State




Watch TERROR: Islamic State: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eIU-KxUVk6A

VICE News has obtained footage taken from the headcam of an Islamic State (IS) fighter who died in March while battling Kurdish peshmerga troops in northern Iraq. The clash took place about 30 miles north of Mosul.

Unlike IS propaganda, which often presents sweeping battlefield victories, the video shows chaos, panic, and the fighters retreating.

VICE News shows the grim reality of an IS foot soldier.

  1. To be fair the man with the headcam and the guy handling the RPG seemed to be fairly capable and well trained for a roll of the mill terrorist group… Now Abu Hajaar on the other hand.
