The VICE News web site has posted video footage it says has been taken from the headcam of an Islamic State fighter killed in March during a battle with Kurdish Peshmerga forces.

The battle took place in northern Iraq, about 50 kilometers north of Mosul.

In an article entitled "What it's really like to fight for the Islamic State," the web site says that contrary to ISIS propaganda that tends to present sweeping victories, the video it has posted shows chaos, panic and fighters retreating.
