In an attempt to mobilize public opinion and gain support for its outreach in Syria and Iraq, over the weekend Iran released a four-minute video clip praising Mohsen Hojaji, a 25-year-old-member of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps who was recently beheaded by the Islamic State militants in Iraq.

Hajaji was captured in an ambush near the border with Iraq on August 7.

The video clip, titled “Beheaded Prideful”, has been aired several times on various TV channels in Iran, including the State Television. According to Article 44 of Iran’s Constitution, TV channels in Iran are fully controlled by the state.
