ISIS Fighter Who Defected Says ISIS Was Well Prepared For Coalition Airstrikes, Moving Fighters To Civilian Areas and Weapons Underground (VIDEO)
An ISIS defector says the atrocities by the group were too brutal for him so he shaved his beard and fled to Turkey. Speaking to CNN's Arwa Damon he says ISIS knew airstrikes were coming and prepared, moving weaponry underground and fighters to areas that wouldn't be hit
Damon then interviews an ISIS militant via Skype. The fighter, using the pseudonym Abu Talha, says ISIS was anticipating strikes from the west, "We've been ready for this for some time," Abu Talha said. "We know that our bases are known because they're tracking us with radars and satellites, so we had backup locations."
He tells Arwa Damon that strikes on oilfields are not having an effect, "We have revenues other than oil. We have other avenues, and our finances are not going to stop just because of oil losses"
He ends his interview with, 'we will defeat the infidels'
