A new image of the Saudi doctor who had joined the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria surfaced on Monday. Mustafa al-Anzi appears holding a large combat knife in the picture, showing that he had indeed joined the ISIS.

Al Anzi was reportedly killed on July 11 in an Iraqi military air-strike on an ISIS assembly in Mosul. Another image of Al Anzi yielding an AK-47 appeared a week ago. His brother explained to Al Arabiya News that bearing arms as doctor was necessary as he was operating in a conflict area.


Al Anzi’s family alleges he was working in ISIS field hospitals and had not been involved in combat. The family continues to claim he died while operating in a field-hospital struck by the Iraqi air-raid.
