The notorious Islamic State terrorist, known for executing foreigners in a series of blood curtailing videos has been identified. He is known in western media as Jihadi John, his real name is believed to be Muhammed al-Amwazi with a mixed Kuwaiti and Iraqi origin. But CNN appears to have it’s own take on the Jihadi John’s real identity; according to the channel it is Vladimir Putin. Although CNN has apologized for the blooper, but the video has already become viral on Internet.
A new amateur video apparently recorded by a local Mosul resident showing life in Mosul under the rule of Islamic State in Iraq and al-Sham or ISIS. The video that is just few seconds longer than a minute is believed to be recorded on February 8, 2015. In the video, life seems to be normal and no ISIS militant is seen in the neighborhood.
After a surprise retreat by Iraqi army in Mosul on June 10, 2014, the ISIS militants were able to overrun the city. In the last two weeks, Iraqi and American military officials have indicated that Iraqi government troops would launch a major offensive to recapture territory “in the weeks ahead.”
