Posted November 10, 2020 05:30:00In a first for a news outlet in the Middle East, Al Jazeera Arabic published a documentary on the rise and fall of ISIS.
The title The War is titled after the war waged by the Islamic State group against the Iraqi Kurdish fighters of the People’s Protection Units (YPG) and the Peshmerga (the US-backed Kurdish force).
The documentary follows the rise in the group’s popularity and its rise to power during the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq in 2003.
“In 2003, when Iraq fell, Al-Qaeda, Al Qaeda-linked groups were all over Iraq and Syria,” said filmmaker Ali Haidar.
“So when the United States invaded Iraq, Al Qaida-linked factions were all in the area.
And the rise was a real shock to the region.”
The rise of the Islamic group and its brutal tactics is a common theme in Al Jazeera’s journalism.
The documentary also examines the political, economic, and social ramifications of ISIS’s rise and its impact on the region.
Al Jazeera Arabic, an English-language news channel, began broadcasting in the region in 2004.
It has also covered events such as the 2009 earthquake in Nepal, the 2008 riots in Bangladesh, and the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks.
In the documentary, Al Shabab leader and former commander of the Al Qaeda offshoot in Somalia, Abdulkadir Mashal, explains the group to a group of young men from different parts of Somalia.
Mashal, who was once a prominent member of Al Qaeda, was killed in a U.N. airstrike in 2006.
He was the head of Al Shabaab, a militant group that was blamed for the 2004 Mumbai attacks.
He led Al Shabbab in the north of Somalia, a region that was at the heart of the 2008 attacks on Mumbai.
Mackenham, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, said he was shocked by the documentary.
“It is an important moment for journalism in this region and in the wider Middle East,” Mackenham said.
“It shows the degree to which these groups are capable of turning into the sort of terrorist organisations they are today.”
Mashad explains that ISIS and Al Shabiha, an affiliate of the Syrian branch of Al Nusra Front, were created by a small group of Alawites in Syria to fight the U,S.-backed government in Damascus.
Al Nusrah was a splinter group of al Qaeda, and its leadership was killed by the U-S.
and its allies in 2011.
Al Shababe leader Abdul Rahman al Masri, who is now in prison, was one of the leaders of Al Qadiya, which was a precursor to ISIS.
Al Qaidah, a rebel group, was created after the U.-S.
invasion of the country.
Al Masri has been in custody since January 2017 and faces several charges of involvement in the 2007 Mumbai attacks, including a plot to detonate a suicide bomb in the Uman airport.
He was also charged with inciting the 2009 riot in Bangladesh.
The court has not yet decided whether he should be freed.
Mashi says he will remain a prisoner for now.
Al Masri will be released at the end of the year, Mashad says.MASHAD: Al Masryad is now a free man.
Al Shabeab is a freedom fighter.
Al-Qadiya is a liberation force.
The war is over.
It’s been a long road, but we are in the end victorious.
It is our freedom.
The end is coming.
Al Qadiyah has been fighting ISIS since 2015.
He is now an ISIS prisoner, but has also fought the group in Somalia.
He and others from his group have been fighting for years.
In Somalia, Mashadeh says he and his fellow fighters are taking on the fighters of Al Jazeera.
Masha says he is proud to be a part of the fight against ISIS and believes that the war will be won.
“I am happy to be fighting for my country,” Mashad said.
