Former Daesh militant talks about the group's distorted image of Islam

Middle East

Abu Abdullah is a former Daesh militant in Iraq. But after the organisation attempted to bomb the Prophet’s Mosque in Mecca (al-Masjid al-Nabawi), even he was shocked at their tactics and decided to leave the terrorist group.

He talks to Al-Aan about the build up to this attack, and the distorted view of Islam that Daesh attempts to propagate.
