Daesh video of ‘spies’ killing desperate propaganda: UK

Daesh members prepare to shoot five men who they accused of spying for Britain in Syria.

Daesh members prepare to shoot five men who they accused of spying for Britain in Syria.

A Daesh video showing a young boy in military fatigues and an older masked militant who both spoke with British accents is “desperate” propaganda from an organization that is losing ground, Prime Minister David Cameron said on Monday.

The video, which could not be independently verified, also shows the killing of five men accused of spying for the West.

The masked man threatens Cameron and vows that Daesh will one day occupy Britain before shooting one of the alleged spies in the head.

The footage revived memories of “Jihadi John,” a British Daesh member who appeared in several videos in which hostages were killed before his own death was reported in an air strike late last year.

“It’s desperate stuff from an organization that really does the most utterly despicable and ghastly acts and people can see that again today,” Cameron told reporters.

“This is an organization that’s losing territory, it’s losing ground … Britain will never be cowed by this sort of terrorism, our values are so much stronger than theirs. It may take a very long time but they will be defeated.”

In the latest fighting in Iraq, Daesh has largely been pushed out of the city of Ramadi, its biggest prize of last year.

Cameron’s spokeswoman said Britain was examining the video and the prime minister was being kept updated. She was not aware whether Cameron himself had watched it.

“It serves as a reminder of the barbarity of Daesh and what the world faces with these terrorists. It is also clearly a propaganda tool and should be treated as such,” the spokeswoman said, referring to Islamic State by one of its Arabic acronyms.

When asked whether the men shown had been spies, the spokeswoman refused to comment on intelligence matters but said the group’s past propaganda had not all been true.

After the killings of the five men, a young English-speaking boy, who is wearing a black bandana and appears to be about four or five years old, is shown saying: “So go kill the kuffar right over there.”
