An Iraqi-Kurdish television channel has broadcast a music video mocking the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), a militant group that continues to battle Kurdish troops to take control over parts of both Syria and Iraq.

The video features a group of men in fake beards singing, dancing and using their guns and sticks as instruments.

“We are bearded, dirty and filthy, we are brainless with nothing in our heads,” one of the men clad in a fake beard dancing around in a studio with the notorious ISIS black and white banner as a backdrop.

“We are ISIS, we milk the goat even if it’s male,” the group chants in the chorus.

The United Nations and various human rights groups have accused ISIS of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity in the areas it now controls in war-stricken Syria and Iraq.

“Our language is bullets and cutting, we have no knowledge in our brains, we scare women and children,” the men sang in reference to the militant group’s deadly attacks on the Sinjar region where the Yazidi ethnic minority dwelled.

“We strive for jihad and sex, we are comfortable and happy to see blood,” they sang.

In an issue of its online magazine released earlier this month, ISIS boasted capturing hundreds of Yazidi women and girls and using as slaves. The United Nations said there is evidence indicating that the women have been sexually assaulted.
