An ISIS hostage who has been abducted more than two years ago by the Islamic State terrorist group has been appearing in a series of videos shot by the ISIS group itself. The ISIS hostage is a British photojournalist named John Cantlie, who appears in a video released on Monday. Apparently, the video was shot in Kobani, a Syrian town near the Turkish border. The video shows him as a war correspondent who broadcasts that the town where he currently lives is going to be taken under siege by the ISIS group. The ISIS hostage said that this will happen regardless of the American airstrikes.
The ISIS hostage is shown wearing black clothes saying that “Now the battle for Kobani is coming to an end.”
The British Foreign Office could not verify the video immediately and they do not know exactly when or where the video was taken. They stated that the video is being analyzed as we speak.
The ISIS hostage, Mr. Cantlie has appeared in a series of short videos filmed by terrorist group, where he explains the strategies of the militants as they are trying to establish in Syria and Iraq an Islamic caliphate of their own.
The ISIS hostage shown in the recent videos is in contrast with the horrific images of the other four hostages, two British and two American, who have been beheaded while they were forced to kneel in a bare landscape. The hostages were forced to explain that they deserve their death because of the Western actions taken against the extremist militants.
In one of the most recent videos of the ISIS hostage, he is standing on a rooftop, gesturing over his shoulder and saying that what is behind him is Turkish territory. The video also shows aerial images of the town below, which means that the ISIS terrorists have drone technology for a more accurate surveillance.
The British Foreign Office will continue to analyze the contents of the videos in which the British photojournalist appears and we will keep you posted with any updates on this case.
