In a new video released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants in “Wilayat Kirkuk,” Iraq are shown mass executing Shiite Muslims. The video is titled “Harvest of the Years” and was released on July 10 on ISIS terrorist channels. Shia Muslims believe in a different line of successorship for Islam following the death of its founder Muhammad. It is often used by ISIS to refer to “Iran” as a whole as Iran is majority Shia or for the Shia-backed government of Iraq.
