ISLAMIC STATE MILITANTS BEHEAD KURDISH MAN IN IRAQ
Islamic State (IS) militants have released a video, titled “Message in Blood,” which shows them beheading “a Kurdish man as a warning to forces fighting the group in northern Iraq.”
According to BBC News, the video shows the victim “kneeling near a mosque in the IS-held city of Mosul” just prior to being executed. Three men draped in black stand behind him, two with AK-47s and one with a knife, IS flags to the left and right.
The video shows over a dozen other men in orange jumpsuits, whom IS claims are captured Kurdish soldiers. They warn that these, too, will be killed, as will all others who fight against IS.
“Message in Blood” comes on the heels of a video of IS militants executing approximately 250 Syrian soldiers. On August 28, Breitbart News reported that the militants forced the Syrian soldiers to strip, then marched them into the desert and shot them.
