As fighting remains fierce between Kurdish and Islamic State fighters in Syria and Iraq, Kurds have released a music video ridiculing the extremist Islamist group. 

In the video bearded men play air guitar on rifles and dance with swords. The clip was broadcast by KurdSat TV and posted on the internet last week according to MEMRI - The Middle East Media Research Institute.

"We are bearded dirty and filthy. We are brainless with nothing in our heads," the singers chant. 

Other selected lyrics include:

"We milk the goat even if it is male. We are ISIS. We are ISIS. Our pockets are full of Qatari money, our language is bullets and cutting."

"From Chechnya and the Hijaz we come smelling of garlic and onion." 

"We strive for Jihad and sex."
