In this video, an ISIS fighter displays the ammunition and military equipment which were dropped by the U.S. for Kurdish fighters, but fell in an area controlled by ISIS. The fighter inspects a large package, still attached to a parachute, and then opens several crates, revealing hand grenades, RPG rockets, and bombs. The video was posted on the Internet on October 21, 2014.

Following are excerpts:

A parachute connected to cardboard boxes lies on the ground

Masked ISIS fighter: "Indeed, those who disbelieved spend their wealth to avert people from the path of Allah, so they will spend it, and it will be for them a [source of] regret. Then they will be overcome." This is some of the American aid that was dropped for the PKK atheists.

There is ammunition and military equipment here. This is some military equipment dropped by the American forces for the YPG and PKK. These are RPG rockets. These bombs are the bombs that the American forces dropped for the Kurdish parties. Allah be praised this is booty for the mujahideen.
