ISIS 2.0: New Clothes, New People, Same Horror

Fact checked

A graphic photo is circulating that allegedly shows a Croatian hostage, abducted by ISIS in Egypt, being beheaded. 

It seems that ISIS 2.0 has landed.

The new military garb has a more ‘westernised’ look, as ISIS ditch the traditional long black tunic in favour of a U.S. style camouflage uniform.

The hostage, holding cue cards, next to an upgraded version of the ISIS flag (now with gold fringe!) is all the more disturbing.  Some wonder if a video is soon on its way.


The still photo, circulated by ISIS supporters on social media, appeared to show the body of Tomislav Salopek, 30, a married father of two, wearing a beige jumpsuit like the one he wore in a previous video. A black flag used by the Islamic State group and a knife were planted in the sand next to his body.

A caption in Arabic said Salopek was killed “for his country’s participation in the war against the Islamic State,” and came after a deadline had passed for Egypt to meet his captors’ demands to free jailed Islamist women.
