Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and his AK Party leaders have been launching threats against north and east areas of Syria liberated from ISIS, which was publicly supported by Turkey, where ISIS sold the stolen oil from Syria and Iraq to Turkey.
Throughout SDF battles against ISIS in north and east of Syria, the Turkish president and his party have been trying to hinder the defeat of ISIS by opening the border to cross arms and foreign mercenaries and transporting and treating the wounded in government hospitals. The support is sometimes up to the attack on SDF's positions to allow Daesh to regain its strength.
In conjunction with Erdogan's threats, ISIS mercenaries broadcast a video on Telegram on Sunday, the second since they were declared geographically defeated on March 23 this year after liberation al-Bagouz town in the countryside of Deir-ez-Zor by SDF.
In the video, ISIS vows to intensify its attacks on the US-led International Coalition, as well as the Kurds in Syria, according to AFP.
"The battle between us and them has stoked its fire and will intensify," the video addresses ISIS mercenaries and their loyalists in Syria (soldiers of Islam and the Caliphate in Syria, al-Khair, Baraka, al-Raqqa, Damascus, Idlib and Aleppo).
The 10-minute video shows beheadings and executions of people ISIS says are fighters from SDF, and also includes clips from television reports and testimonies confirming that ISIS has not been defeated and remains in Syria.
The last video broadcast by ISIS dates back to April 29, when its leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, appeared five years after his first appearance, calling on his pledges to continue fighting, and then vowed Baghdadi's "long battle" with the West.
ISIS mercenaries have recently detonated several motorcycles and booby-trapped vehicles in northern and eastern Syria, and these attacks coincided with recent threats by Recep Erdogan.
