Beirut (AsiaNews/Agencies) - The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) announced in a video that it has captured four "religious extremists" who were preparing a plot against the "Caliphate".
In a video posted on jihadist websites a voiceover talks about the capture of "a cell of religious extremists who were planning to take up arms against the Caliphate in order to destabilize the internal security of the Islamic State in preparation for an attack "by the international coalition of the Free Syrian Army" and by the regime in Damascus.
The four "extremists" confess - with what could be an Azerbaijan accent - their desertion of ISIS because the Islamic state does not consider "all Iraqis and Syrians infidels" and they accuse the "Caliph" Abou Bakr Al-Baghdadi of being "an infidel, because he takes money from the infidels."
The video does not specify when or where the seizure of the "extremists" took place, but it bears the initials that mark the province of Raqqa, Isis' stronghold in northern Syria. Nor does it reveal the fate of the prisoners, but the video ends with a phrase from the Koran according to which those who fight against God and his prophet deserve death, and to have their feet and arms cut off.
Meanwhile in Raqqa, according to the Financial Times, the mass murder has taken place of 100 Western guerrillas of the Islamic State who were attempting to flee the war zone.
