‘Paris Attackers’ Behead Captives In ISIS Video

One militant holds up a captive’s head and warns he will do the same on the Champs-Elysees in newly released footage.

Islamic State has released a video appearing to show the militants who later carried out the Paris attacks beheading or shooting prisoners and training with weapons.

The 17-minute video claims to include the last statements of nine of the jihadis who took part in the 13 November attacks that killed 130 people.

“These are the last messages of the nine lions of the caliphate who were mobilised from their lairs to make a whole country, France, get down on its knees,” a narrator in the video says.

It was uploaded to the group’s online channel and shows some of the militants wearing camouflage clothes in a desert location.

One of them appears to be Bilal Hadfi, who became known as the “baby-faced terrorist”.

He blew himself up outside the Stade de France during the Paris attacks.

“You destroy our homes and kill our fathers, our brothers, our sisters, our mothers, our children,” he says.

Samy Amimour, who was raised in a Paris suburb near the French national stadium, says “soon on the Champs-Elysees” as he holds up a captive’s head.

Salah Abdeslam, who fled Paris on the night of the attacks and remains at large, is not in the footage, but his brother Brahim, who blew himself up at a cafe, is shown at a makeshift shooting range.

The video also appears to show Abu Qital al Faransi – the gunman blew himself up after he opened fire in the Bataclan theatre.

The attackers are all identified in the video by noms de guerre, referring to their nationalities: three French, four Belgian and two Iraqis, referred to as Ali al Iraqi and Ukashah al Iraqi.
