ISIS has released chilling footage which appears to show the desperate final moments of four US soldiers ambushed and killed in Niger. The terror group published the video yesterday that purportedly captured its fighters attacking a US convoy with machine guns and grenade launchers during a patrol. The graphic footage appears to have been recorded on multiple helmet cameras worn by US soldiers, but has been edited. US troops were said to be returning from an operation near the Mali border when they came under attack.
The video appears to show soldiers pinned down by gunfire as they use their Land Cruiser vehicles for cover. Red-coloured smoke grenades have been set off in an apparent attempt to call for air support and make it harder to be seen by the enemy.
Soldiers are seen sprinting for their lives until one, reported to be Sergeant Johnson, falls to the ground. The attack sparked scrutiny on the role of US troops in Niger, where special forces were deployed to help the country's counter-terror operations. Later, it caused further controversy when the widow of Sergeant Johnson claimed President Donald Trump made an insensitive remark during a condolence call. Myeshia Johnson alleged Trump told her that her husband "knew what he signed up for" moments before she met his coffin at Miami Airport.
The President denied making the comment, despite the account being back up by Sgt Johnson's mother and Democrat Congresswoman Frederica Wilson, who became embroiled in a war of words with Trump.

The beheadings received wide coverage around the world and attracted international condemnation. According to Professor Ibrahim al-Marashi, ISIL is using beheadings of locals to intimidate people, including their own soldiers, into obeying the dictates of a weak state. Beheadings of Westerners are designed to strike back at the United Kingdom and the United States for military actions against ISIL that they have no other way of responding to.

July 13, pm Updated July 14, am. Graphic video posted online this week purportedly shows a group of Iraqi soldiers giving ISIS fighters a taste of their own medicine — tossing them off a cliff and pumping their bodies full of bullets as soon as they hit the ground. The footage shows the broad daylight executions of at least two Islamic State militants, one of whom tries desperately to get away from his captors. Iraqi officials are reportedly investigating the disturbing, two-minute clip after it was posted on Twitter Wednesday by the local blog, Mosul Eye.
The footage seemingly shows an ISIS fighter being held in a building and then dragged by soldiers to a cliff with a drop of at least 30ft. After a brief struggle, he is tossed to the ground below — where the body of a dead jihadist is already waiting. The soldiers at the top then proceed to fire numerous rounds at the man, striking him several times and presumably killing him.
It appears as if the other militant met the same fate. The video comes amid mounting witness reports of torture and executions in Mosul — committed by Iraqi soldiers — after they managed to re-capture the city from the Islamic State.
While several media outlets have been unable to verify the video, the Human Rights Watch group said Thursday it was authentic and had been filmed in the Old City, along with several other executions. An Iraqi interior ministry spokesman said Thursday that if the video is, in fact, authentic that those behind the killings would be brought to justice.
