A new video purportedly released by the Islamic State shows three men out of 280 captives killed before a ransom is demanded for the remaining hostages. The video is believed to have been filmed in the Khabour River region of the Al-Hasakah Governorate in February 2015, but was released on October 8.


According to a translation of the video by

…the terrorist group threatens to execute the remaining 280 captives if a ransom of $50,000 per hostage is not paid to them in the coming weeks; this monetary demand aggregates to $14 million (U.S.) in order to release the prisoners.

The three Assyrian men that were identified in the video are Dr. ‘Abdel-Maseeh Aniyah of Tal Jazirah (Al-Hasakah), Ashur Rustam Abraham of Tal Jazirah, and Bassam Issa Michael from Tal Shamiram (Al-Jazirah).

We are currently looking for a raw video of the latest ISIS propaganda film.
