Woman Uses Hidden Camera to Show What Life Under ISIS Is Really Like

By

A video commissioned by France 2 and recorded by a woman using a hidden camera purports to show what life is really like under ISIS rule in Syria. The footage was filmed in Raqqa, a large Syrian city, which remains one of the terror groups’s strongholds.

The unnamed woman risked her life by hiding a camera in her niqab and filming daily life in Raqqa. The footage shows a mother escorting her children to a playground with an AK47 slung over her shoulder; an encounter with a man who tells the woman filming to dress more decently because “God loves women who are covered”; and an all-women internet café where French women who joined ISIS explain to their families abroad why they’re not coming home.
