Updated 13 hours ago from 5 tweets

A new, unverified video that appears to show the execution of Japanese journalist Kenji Goto was purportedly released by ISIS on Saturday.

  • To the Japanese government, you like your foolish allies in the Satanic coalition have yet to understand that we, by Allahs grace, are an Islamic caliphate with authority and power, an entire army thirsty for your blood, the man says, speaking with a British accent.
  • The Japanese government is working to confirm the videos authenticity, the Japanese news agency Kyodo reported.
  • It comes after Goto appeared in a video last weekend, announcing the apparent execution of fellow Japanese hostage Haruna Yukawa.
  • This latest video does not discuss the fate of Muath al-Kaseasbeh, a Jordanian fighter pilot captured by ISIS whom the group had also been threatening to execute if al-Rishawi was not released.

Updated 17 hours ago from 7 tweets

The United States helped build the bomb, the former official said, and tested it repeatedly at a CIA facility in North Carolina to ensure the potential blast area was contained and would not result in collateral damage.

  • The United States has never acknowledged participation in the killing of Mughniyah, which Hezbollah blamed on Israel.
  • Until now, there has been little detail about the joint operation by the CIA and Mossad to kill him, how the car bombing was planned or the exact U.S. role.
  • Moreover, he was killed in a car bombing, a technique that some legal scholars see as a violation of international laws that proscribe killing by perfidy using treacherous means to kill or wound an enemy.
  • Crocker said that he didnt know anything about the operation to kill the Hezbollah operative and had doubts about Mughniyah traveling to Iraq.
