ISIS Fighters Detained by Al-Qaeda in Yemen: Islamic State Does Not Care About Its Captured Soldiers; It Has Rejected Prisoner Swaps on Multiple Occasions; Our Blood Is Cheap

In a video uploaded to the Internet on July 31, 2019, a group of four ISIS fighters detained in Yemen by Al-Qaeda criticized the Islamic State for refusing the negotiate prisoner swaps with Al-Qaeda on multiple occasions. In a message to other ISIS fighters, they said that ISIS betrays its soldiers and that it does not care about them. One of the fighters explained that they had been captured almost one year ago by Ansar Al-Shari'a after a battle in Al-Sukhar.
