ISIS Muslims took multitudes of peopled, lined them up and slaughtered all of them:
According to one report:
The Islamic State terror group has carried out a new series of mass executions of prisoners it considers traitors in a video released on Tuesday in Iraq, dubbed “Hell of the Apostates.”
Heavy reported that the video was shot somewhere near Baghdad, the capital of Iraq, and like past IS videos shows scenes of graphic and horrific violence, mixed in with propaganda messages against Western leaders, such as President Barack Obama.
Parts of the video show armed IS fighters leading groups of blindfolded men to pre-dug graves, where they are executed by being shot in the head one by one.
Other segments depict intense fighting between IS jihadis and opposition forces. The radical group has been trying to keep hold of its captured territory across Iraq and Syria, but has faced heavy opposition in the form of U.S.-led airstrikes, and ground troops from regional forces.
The people executed by IS in the latest video are referred to as “sahwat,” people who received assistance from the U.S. in the fight against IS’ predecessor organization, al-Qaeda in Iraq.
IS accuses such people of “stabbing it in the back” for taking U.S. assistance and combating Islamic extremism, and has sought to punish and make an example out of them.
Heavy reports that the identities or allegiances of those executed is so far unclear.
