There is no way to be sure exactly what we are looking at. Everything ISIS releases needs to be taken with a grain of salt. We have no way to independently verify that the individuals being attacked are PMU troops, or civilians. That said, ISIS stated in this release that the PMU troops were taking a break from the fighting when their sniper initiated a near ambush on the group.
The first man is hit directly, and falls off of the structure he was standing on. He also appears to be in some sort of uniform, but the brightness on the video is a little too dark to actually tell. The other two men then come under immediate machine gun fire. In the foreground, the man in red shorts jumps over some sand bag-like objects to take cover. In the rear, a man ducks down behind some other structure just as fast.
There was no further statement or context found with the video.
