Benghazi, 3 August 2015:
Daesh has posted a video threatening the House of Representatives and armed forces commander Khalifa Hafter . . .[restrict]with unspecified retribution for their operations against the organisation.
An unmasked man with a clear Tunisian accent stars in an adroitly-edited sequence which uses three separate cameras. In the course of the six minute clip, which includes cutaways to serried ranks of seated fighters and is overlaid by the normal martial singing, the Daesh man says that he is speaking from Sirte.
He insists that Daesh is a threat to the “tyrant Hafter” because it is acting in the name of God. He adds that Hafter and his men were fighting Daesh because they wanted money but unlike Daesh, they were also afraid to die. [/restrict]
