ISIL'posts UK video threat'


The Islamist extremist group ISIL has posted a video on the internet making an apparent threat to attack Britain. The unverified footage contains images of UK MPs backing airstrikes in Syria.

The package also purports to show the last statements of nine of the people who took part in the Paris attacks in November. There are also shots of the locations targeted in the French capital where 130 died.

One of the images shows a man closely resembling Abdel hamid Abaaoud, the suspected ringleader of the attacks.

Abaaoud, a Belgian national, died in a police raid on a flat in Saint-Denis, near Paris, days after the attacks.

Nine suspected attackers died on November 13 or in the days after, and two more are on the run.

Meanwhile the violence in Syria goes on ahead of peace talks aimed at finding a solution to the civil war.
More social media videos purports to show devastation after shelling in an Aleppo town as well as heavy fighting between ISIL militants and Syrian troops as well as Russian forces.

Earlier according to Syrian government forces they’ve seized the last major town held by rebels in western Latakia province.
According to state TV Rabia, which has been in rebel hands for four year has been overrun by the army and so-called “popular defence” fighters. The province is a stronghold of the Alawite community to which President Bashar al-Assad belongs.
