ISIS promises to 'defeat America' in new video

The Islamic State claimed it will “defeat America” in a video released by the group’s Amaq news agency on Tuesday, the AFP reported.

The footage was allegedly shot in the Iraqi city of Mosul, the organization’s last stronghold in the country, and shows ISIS militants with masks over their faces saying “As for you, America, we promise you ... America will be defeated in Iraq and will leave, God willing, again – humiliated, wretched, dragging its tail in defeat."

The United States is backing Iraqi and Kurdish forces in an operation to retake Mosul from ISIS which started yesterday morning. Mosul was first taken by ISIS in 2014.
