Islamic State have reportedly launched their own ‘health service’, bearing remarkable similarities to the publicly funded British health service, the National Health Service (NHS).
Known as the Islamic State Health Service (ISHS), even the acronym appears to be an unimaginative copy of the UK’s free health system.
The video features an Australian pediatrician and an Indian physiologist, urging foreign doctors to travel to Syria and help ISIS with their new health care service.
Emerging last night on social media, the video’s poster show a cropped image of a doctor, wearing an NHS style blue surgical scrubs, almost identical to images seen on the British healthcare service’s leaflets.

A stethoscope can be seen hanging around the male doctor’s neck and a small microphone appears to be attached to his gown, suggesting the health worker was interviewed.
An electrocardiogram and the outline of an x-ray also appear in the western style health service poster.
Billed as the ‘Islamic State Dewan of Health’, the video features an Australian doctor, known as Abu Yusuf al-Australi. It is unclear of his real identity but it is possible he is a convert.
Abu Yusuf says: ‘My name is Abu Yusuf. I am one of the media team in Raqqa.I made hijrah from Australia to the Islamic State to live under the khilafah.
‘I saw this as part of my jihad for Islam, to help the Muslim Ummah (community) in the area that I could which is the medical field.’
The doctor is shown monitoring and handling babies in a maternity unit as well as teaching another doctor how to care for the infant patients.
He says: ‘When I got here, I was very happy I made the decision and I was a little bit saddened by how long I delayed it. I wish i had come a lot sooner.
‘After being her, it is disappointing to think how many fellow Muslims brothers and sisters in the medical field, who are doctors and nurses, physios, who are still living in the West and are unfortunately the Muslims living here are suffering, not necessary a lack of equipment or medicine but a mainly a lack of qualified medical care.’
‘It is a good system that they are running here. Everything is living up to my expectations completely and we really need your help.
‘It is not the equipment that we are lacking, it is truly just the staff. Inshallah see you soon.’
The video comes at a time when jihadis on social media, most notably British fighter Omar Hussain, has called on European doctors to join Islamic State.
British female jihadi Aqsa Mahmood, could also be drafted into working as part of the Islamic State Health Service.
The Glasgow born radical, also known as online recruiter Umm Layth, studied radiography at Glasgow Calendonian university.
She originally had high hopes of becoming a doctor before she left her family home and traveled to Syria in November 2013.
The 20-year-old, who was privately educated Craigholme School and Shawlands Academy in Glasgow, is currently believed to be a prominent member of the fearsome al-Khansaa brigade.
The al-Khansaa brigade is an all-female militia, mostly foreign female jihadis, who patrol the streets and punish any woman caught committing acts against Islam.
However it is likely that with mounting casualties, any jihadi with medical training will be drafted in to work in the ISIS hospitals in Raqqa and Mosul.
The new video also comes after nine British medical student reportedly traveled to Syria last month, claiming they were going to help treat the war victims.
The students are all believed to be of Sudanese origin and were studying at a medical school in Khartoum, Sudan.
The four men and five women reportedly crossed the Turkish-Syrian border last month. Their families traveled to Turkey, desperately attempting to persuade them to come back from the war-torn country.
‘They have been cheated, brainwashed. That is what I, and their relatives, think,’ Turkish opposition politician Mehmet Ali Ediboglu said after meeting the families.
‘We all assume that they are in Tel Abyad now, which is under IS control. The conflict out there is fierce, so medical help must be needed.’
He insisted that the students wanted to volunteer in hospitals, adding: ‘Let’s not forget about the fact that they are doctors; they were there to help, not to fight.’
The students were named as Lena Mamoun Abdelgadir, Nada Sami Kader, Rowan Kamal Zine El Abidine, Tasneem Suleyman Huseyin, Ismail Hamdoun, Tamer Ahmed Ebu Sebah, Mohammed Osama Badri Mohammed, Hisham Mohammed Fadlallah and Sami Ahmed Kadir.
