The Islamic State released a video Wednesday showing the beheading of a man it identified as a Russian spy.

The video says that the man had joined the Islamic State terrorist group, but they determined he was a Russian spy, according to NBC news.

The video is titled, “You Shall be Disappointed and Humiliated O Russians,” according to CNN.  The authenticity of the video could not be immediately confirmed.

The man doing the killing on the video says the bombing of Islamic State positions by Russia “has only made us more certain and firm.”

Russia has been bombing Islamic State targets in Syria since the militant group claimed responsibility for the downing of a Russian airliner over Egypt on October 31.

Coalition forces target oil operations

The beheading comes as United States led coalition forces continue to face major challenges trying to defeat the militant group. France has stepped up air strikes of Islamic State militants after terrorist attacks in Paris that killed 130 people on November 13.

One target of United States, France and coalition partners is Islamic State oil operations.

Islamic State sells oil it has stolen to pay for its terrorist operations, said the Obama administration.

Islamic State makes an estimated $100 million dollars to $500 million dollars a year from oil sales, said a congressional report. It is not the largest source of revenue, but still critical, according to the Obama administration.

It is difficult to stop these oil sales, it said.

Bombing by the United States and coalition forces stopped some oil sales, but not enough, the Obama administration said.

In addition, it is hard for some to resist cheap oil, even if sold by a  terrorist organization, said Ben Bahney, an analyst for the Rand Corporation. 

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused Turkey recently of shooting down one of its fighter jets “to protect oil supply routes to Turkey” from the Islamic State.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan denies this.

U.S. to send special forces

Defense Secretary Ash Carter told Congress Tuesday that the U.S. plans to send 200 special forces personnel in Iraq within weeks.

The job for the special forces troops will be ambitious, Carter said.

“These special operations will over time be able to conduct raids, free hostages, gather intelligence and capture ISIL leaders,” Carter said.
 
Islamic State militants and the Taliban in Afghanistan continue to terrorize in other parts of the world, as well.

More than two dozen priests and religious leaders in Bangladesh said they received death threats recently. The threats were made via text messages, phone calls and postal letters.

And, in Afghanistan, the Taliban Wednesday criticized NATO’s decision to extend its mission in the country. NATO is an alliance of nations from Europe and North America.

NATO announced Tuesday it will keep 12,000 troops in Afghanistan through 2016. It will continue military and financial aid to the Kabul government through 2020.

伊斯兰国放出了周三的视频,证明被斩首的人是一名俄罗斯间谍。

根据NBC新闻报道:视频中显示,这个男人加入了IS恐怖组织,但是他们确定该男子是俄罗斯人。

根据CNN报道:视频标题是“作为俄罗斯人你应该感到失望和羞愧”该视频的真实性还不能第一时间得到确认。

该男子在视频里准备大干一票,并且说到,是俄罗斯让炸伊斯兰国的“这一点只有我们能确定。”

从10月31日,军队宣称要为俄罗斯开往埃及的客机坠落事件负责之后,俄罗斯已经在叙利亚共和国向伊斯兰国投了炸弹。

联合军队目标是石油操控

被砍头的间谍事件,使得美国带领联合军队继续面临挑战,试图打败军队组织。11月13日,巴黎发生的恐怖事件,致使130人死亡之后,法国加入了对伊斯兰国的空袭。

美国,法国和联盟成员的目标是对伊斯兰国石油操控。

奥巴马政府称,伊斯兰国卖出石油所获的钱,偷偷用于恐怖行动。

国会报告宣称:伊斯兰国做出证明,一年卖出的石油赚了1000万到5000万美元。

据奥巴马政府表示,石油并不是最大收入来源,但其事实仍然有待证实。

据说,很难阻止伊斯兰国卖石油。奥巴马政府还说,美国发动的爆炸,以及联合军队阻止过一部分石油售卖,不过不彻底。

除此之外,阻止低价石油销售很难,即使是恐怖组织在售卖,也很难。Ben Bahney说到,他是Random公司的分析师。

俄罗斯总统弗拉基米尔·普京近来指控土耳其,发送喷气歼击机,“这是为了保护石油运送到土耳其的飞行路线。”伊斯兰国发言人说到。

土耳其总统雷杰普·塔伊普·埃尔多安否认了上述说法。

美国派遣了特殊武力

国防部长Ash Carter周二向国会表示,美国计划近几周内派遣200名特种部队兵驻扎伊拉克。

Carter说,此次任务,特种部队将会非常有信心。

Carter说:“诸如此类的特殊行动将会发生很多次,从而控制他们的雷达,解救人质,收集情报,捕获ISIL的领导。”

伊斯兰国军队和阿富汗塔利班在世界其他地方继续恐怖暴行。

在孟加拉国超过二十个教士和宗教领导说,最近他们收到了死亡威胁。死亡威胁是通过短信,电话和邮政信件寄来的。

周三,在阿富汗塔利班批判北大西洋公约组织的决定,即在全国范围内开展他们的任务。北大西洋公约组织是欧洲到北美洲国家的联盟。

周二,北大西洋公约组织宣布,2016年他们将派出12,000军队到阿富汗。他们还将继续对喀布尔政府进行军队和财政支持,并且持续到2020年。
