The video is believed to be recorded near the Iraqi city of Tikret where Soleimani is reportedly leading the Iraqi Army and its allied Shiite militias in the fight against the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS).

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.”
