ISIS fighters have released a new video on social media, in an apparent drive to recruit deaf and mute people.

Titled “From Who Excused, To Those Not Excused,” the video features two men who are apparently deaf-mutes and brothers.
The two men are shown working as traffic officers in Iraq’s Mosul, which is under ISIS control.

In the five minute clip, the two men speak in sign language with English and Arabic subtitles and refer to ISIS as the “Islamic State.”

“I am a deaf mute who works in the traffic police in the Islamic State with my brother Abu Abdur-Rahman,” said one.

The pair, dressed all in black with ammunition pouches and rifles, add that they wish to “slaughter” their enemies, including America, France and Britain.

The brothers are then shown assembling simple rocket launchers, which they say are being fired against Kurdish Peshmerga fighters.
