The Islamic State group has created a self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate in Iraq and Syria, and is waging a horrifying battle for the control of the largely Sunni Muslim population in the region.
Despite much of the world being opposed to the group’s barbaric behavior, and quite contrary to remarks from President Barack Obama, the radical Islamists of the Islamic State group are not “contained.”
In truth, the fundamentalist Islamic State group has now moved beyond the borders of Iraq and Syria and set up shop in several different countries, most notably Afghanistan in central Asia, Yemen in the Arabian Peninsula, and Libya in North Africa.
Although the radical jihadists have enjoyed some success in their efforts at expanding their rule and imposing their strict Islamic ideology on conquered territories, they are facing some opposition.
While most of the pushback against the Islamic State group has come from the Kurdish people in northern Iraq and Syria, the terrorist organization has been the target of numerous airstrikes and bombing runs over the past year.
The following combat footage shows an airstrike on an Islamic State group compound, which likely claimed the lives of several jihadists.
The radicalized fighters can be seen milling about the compound, suddenly becoming aware of an approaching missile a mere split second before it struck the building.
Though some of the fighters attempted to escape the imminent explosion by running, they didn’t get very far before the blast sent them flying through the air.
If only this scene were to be repeated at least 100 times per day, for a sustained period of time, the Islamic State group’s nascent caliphate would soon crumble and cease to exist, somewhat restoring a semblance of peace to the region.
