The video shows Sharia law enforcement officials, decked out in blue uniforms as opposed to their usual black regalia, monitoring the coastal street of Sirte.

Masked to protect their identities, the soldiers take orders from their commander, as he addresses the camera in Arabic.

The footage functions as both a mockery of, and a warning to, the West, following a security vacuum in the country caused by warring factions following the fall of Colonel Muamar al-Gadaffi.

The city of Shirte still appears to be functioning well despite the presence of ISIS soldiers, with the video showing civilians shopping and electricity still being supplied.
