London: The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has released a third video featuring British journalist, John Cantlie, in a series of videos released by it with an aim to explain the ISIS philosophy to the world and to condemn the military build-up in the region.

The five-and-a-half minute video titled “Lend me your ears” was released on Monday night and showed the 43-year-old hostage reading from a prepared script, reported The Guardian. Cantlie, dressed in an orange outfit, described himself as a “long-term prisoner” and went on to criticize United States President Barack Obama’s air strategy to take on the ISIS.

The report said that it was unclear when the video was made but added that it appeared to be well-produced with good quality sound and lighting.

Cantlie had made it clear in the previous video released on Tuesday last week that he was making the videos under duress. He was captured almost two years ago by the ISIS.
