The image’s caption reads: “al-isdar al-khamis” (“the fifth production/installment”).

This image points to a video file featuring the bloody fight over Fallujah. Above the image in the post appears the caption: “al-qism al-i‘lami li-harakat al-muqawama al-islamiyya hamas al-‘iraq yuqaddim isdarahu al-khamis-malhamat Fallujah” (“Media department of the Islamic Resistance Movement Hamas-Iraq presents its fifth production-the fierce battle of Fallujah”). The image may imply ideological similarities between Hamas and the jihadi forces in Iraq, or operational cooperation between the two (Iraq’s flag and the logo of Hamas in Iraq are in the background).
