Watheq Al-Battat: We are coming. We are coming to kill [Sunnis]. We are coming to take revenge, and we will show no mercy. We are coming to avenge the martyrs – from the martyr Al-Sadiq to the very last martyr of the ongoing battles. We are coming to take revenge for the mass graves. We are coming to avenge the martyrs killed in car bomb attacks. We are coming to take revenge.
I gave [my men] instructions to show them no mercy whatsoever, to treat them with no forgiveness. Turn their cities into rubble. Crush their children and elderly.
We will show you no mercy, and we don’t want you to show us any mercy either. We are coming. You have chosen death, while we have chosen life. You have decided that you want to die, while we have chosen eternal life alongside Hussein.
We want you to face us like real men. We want you to bring it on. We want you to heed our call, and come to us so we can fight.
