(FILES) - A file image grab taken from a video uploaded on YouTube on August 23, 2013 allegedly shows a member of Ussud Al-Anbar (Anbar Lions), a Jihadist group affiliated to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Al-Qaeda's front group in Iraq,  holding up the trademark black and white Islamist flag at an undisclosed location in Iraq's Anbar province. ISIL gunmen seized Iraq's second-largest city on June 10, 2014 as troops threw away their uniforms and abandoned their posts, officials said, in another blow to the Iraqi authorities, who appear incapable of stopping militant advances. Arabic writing on the flag reads: "There is not God but God and Mohammed is the prophet of God."
