The video, which has been filmed with a forehead camera, shows several Daesh terrorists in an open terrain near the town of Hajin, which lies in the Abu Kamal district of the eastern Syrian province of Dayr al-Zawr, firing indiscriminate shots at the US-backed forces.
One of the terrorists, identified by the nom de guerre Abu Aisha, faces his commander Abu Ayman al-Iraqi, and urges him to order fellow Takfiris to retreat.
Iraqi, in return, refuses and commands Daesh terrorists to carry on fighting, Presstv reported.
The terrorists at last decide to abandon their commander and escape from the area onboard a military vehicle.
Iraqi, who is badly injured in the fierce exchange of gunfire with Kurdish-led forces, died of his gunshot wounds hours later.
On Friday, the SDF succeeded in capturing the entire town of Hajin, which served as one of the last Daesh strongholds in eastern Syria.
The recent advance of the US-backed militants came as Turkey said that there would be a campaign against “terrorists” in the eastern Euphrates region.
The SDF commander-in-chief said on Thursday that his fellow fighters would respond strongly to any Turkish attack, but noted that the US-supported Kurdish-led forces were pressing diplomatic efforts to deter an assault.
Mazloum Kobani told Reuters that Washington had made “serious attempts” to prevent a Turkish offensive, but the US should ramp up its efforts further.
Kobani warned that a Turkish assault would tie up militants from the People's Protection Units (YPG), who are purportedly fighting Daesh remnants in eastern Syria, which would allow the Takfiris to spread again.
“We are ready for any attack and will respond strongly ... within our areas. “Till now, our diplomatic attempts are ongoing to deter this,” he said.
Kobani said Turkey had been mobilizing militants from the so-called Free Syrian Army at fronts bordering the region, where SDF forces control areas in northern Syria.
