The Islamic State section in Libya (ISIS) released a video on Sunday purportedly showing the beheading of a man who identified himself as being a citizen of South Sudan.
The captive, dressed in dressed in orange jump suit, made a short statement in which he uttered his name but was not audible and confirmed his nationality.
The masked ISIS fighter in the video, who carried out the beheading, justified the killing by saying that “this is a message to our Muslim brothers in South Sudan who are suffering injustice, uprooting and slaughter at the hands of the Christian aggressors; we are conveying good news to you that Allah has deployed the soldiers of the caliphate to avenge for you and defend you”.
“We will cut every hand that hurt you. O’ Christians in South Sudan know that as you kill you will be killed and as you displace dour brothers we will do the same …No safety or shelter for you except that of the Islamic state.. We will fight all of you as you fight us”.
