So-called Islamic State militants have reportedly released a video to promote their own ‘health service’ that bears a striking resemblance to the British National Health Service.
Known as the Islamic State Health Service – ISHS – a rather obvious rip-off of the UK health system’s acronym.
The video that appeared across social media last night shows a medic, wearing scrubs and carrying a stethoscope, in a very similar style to legitimate NHS branding found across Britain.
Labelled as the ‘Islamic State Dewan of Health’, the video appears to be shot around the IS-held city of Raqqa in Syria.
The video appears to be part of a wider social media campaign by IS to recruit doctors and other healthcare professionals to its cause – which could be seen as a consequence of recent military successes by US-led coalition airstrikes and Iraqi army units.
ITV News has not been able to independently verify this video
