An IRE is a unit used in the measurement of composite video signals. Its name is derived from the initials of the Institute of Radio Engineers. A value of 100 IRE was originally defined to be the range from black to white in a video signal. A value of 0 IRE corresponds to the zero voltage value during the blanking period. The sync pulse is normally 40 IRE below the zero value, so, peak to peak, an all-white signal should be equal to 140 IRE. The reason IRE is a relative measurement is because a video signal may be any amplitude. This unit is used in the ITU-R BT.470 which defines PAL, NTSC and SECAM.

This is a risky ask, when you ask someone to make a video that criticizes ISIS or some other terrorist group, that's a lot to ask because you're asking them to put themselves out there and put themselves potentially in harm's way and no one wants to attract the ire of a terrorist group like ISIS, i never really found there to be a risk in it because I'm Muslim anyways.
The likely target here is instead the HDP. By striking hard at the PKK, the Turkish government is pressuring the HDP to pick a side, either it denounces PKK to end violence, risking political blowback among its Kurdish base, or it adopts a more pro-Kurdish rhetoric, risking the ire of the Turkish public as well as the judiciary, which has a long history of banning Kurdish parties and politicians.
