WATCH: ISIS Executes ‘Crossdresser’ & Beheads 8 ‘Apostates’
In a new video purportedly released by the Islamic State titled “Battle to Avenge the Arrest of Muhajirat Sisters,” ISIS militants in “Wilayat Khorasan,” Afghanistan show an attack on Afghan National Army soldiers before committing brutal executions. The video was released on August 19 on ISIS terrorist channels.
The title refers to the “Muhajir people.” “Muhajir” is an Arabic term to describe a person who emigrates from a non-Muslim country to a Muslim country. It usually refers to Muslim emigrants who left Hindu majority India for the newly formed Pakistan during or after the 1947 Partition. Parts of Pakistan are also claimed by the so-called Islamic State for the occupied territory known as “Wilayat Khorasan.”
The muhajir “sisters” that were arrested that ISIS is claiming to avenge is shown in a screenshot of a news article in the video. According to Khaama Press, the Afghan National Security and Defense Forces A (ANSDF) arrested and detained two Pakistani women in May for attempting to transfer classified documents to ISIS. The documents contained information on how to make explosive devices and other weapons.
The video begins with ISIS militants being briefed on an upcoming attack on Afghan National Army outposts in Kot, Nangarhar, Afghanistan. The attack is then shown with “first person shooter” camera angles.
After the attack on the outposts, a captured ANA police officer fleeing ISIS and dressed as a woman is shown. This footage is video of an ISIS photo report showing the execution of the crossdressing police officer from late July. The video portion of the police officer’s execution is shown at the end of the video.
After the capture of the police officer, ISIS shows the executions and beheadings of multiple “apostates.” Their exact charges are unknown.
