The image portrays an armed Jundallah fighter against a green, mountainous background.  In this frequently reproduced image, the fighter holds an AK-47 and a  large  machete or knife bearing a religious inscription (likely takbir).  The inclusion of the machete is likely to suggest intimidation and slaughter of the jihadists’ enemies.    The image was posted in an article entitled جهاد و مجاهدان در قرآن (“jihad and mujahids in the Qur’an”).
