The report focuses on the punishment rules of living under Daesh, but the video displays more insights – included within the arts and crafts area for children. The reporter passes through a room where children are instructed to create, wired adult-human-sized silhouettes that act as false positives aerial infrared scans. Further insights display the multinational influence on Daesh including a large use of the Russian and English language, as well as support for the Real Madrid Soccer Club.
