Islamic State turns to widescreen TV propaganda in Iraq

BAGHDAD – Islamic State militants have set up giant television screens in the Iraqi city of Ramadi and are using them to proclaim that they will seize more Iraqi territory after capturing the provincial capital last month, residents said.

“They have started

to show videos of their military operations in Iraq and also show confessions by captured soldiers,” said the owner of a small food shop near one of the screens in central Ramadi. “Some programs are encouraging young men to abide by Islamic norms and also show military training of young men on carrying arms and how to fight,” he said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
