A video posted by FiSyria, a group active on Russian-language social media and close to Umar Shishani’s faction in the Islamic State of Iraq and as-Sham (ISIS), claims to show the destruction of part of the border between Iraq and Syria.
The footage was presumably taken at the al-Yaarabiya crossing.
The titles added to the video state that, “The Taghut border no longer exist, taghut laws no longer exist”.
Sources have said that ISIS in Iraq have transferred weapons captured in Iraq to their counterparts in Syria. These photos, shared earlier this week, show ISIS military emir in northern Syria, Umar Shishani checking out an Iraqi Humvee stolen during the capture of Mosul and later transported into Syria.
