Syrian Analyst: Israeli Thoughts Ruling ISIL’s Savagery
A prominent Syrian analyst said ISIL’s savage acts in Iraq and Syria indicate that Israeli thoughts are ruling the terrorist group’s command center.
“The intensifying terror and intimidation methods used by the ISIL in Syria prove that those supporting the terrorist group seek to obtain their goals through violence and want to fully raze certain races from the region’s population map,” Hessam Shoaib told FNA on Saturday.
He said that the new methods of execution used by the ISIL show that the US supports the terrorist group directly since the technologies it uses for recording and producing the videos of its beheadings and executions is completely different from other groups in the region.
“Israel’s presence in ISIL’s command center is indicated by the savagery of this terrorist group that is based on Talmudic rituals,” Shoaib said.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights confirmed on Friday that at least 20 people were executed by the ISIL terrorist group in the predominantly-Kurdish city of Kobani, in the Northern parts of Syria.
The ISIL executed 20 civilians and wounded 15 others, after locals fought back an ISIL surprise attack in the town of Barkh Butan in South of Kobani, the monitor said.
The ISIL Takfiri terrorists released a new propaganda video purportedly showing prisoners being executed by drowning, explosive beheading, and RPG fire in Iraq.
On Tuesday, the Takfiri group released a graphic seven-and-half-minute video titled “But if You Return, We Shall Return,” showing the execution of 15 prisoners accused of espionage in the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh.
The footage starts with ISIL militants pulling out human remains from a pile of debris, then shows the prisoners confessing to espionage against the terrorist group, and winds up by shots of their executions with three various methods.
In the first round of executions, three prisoners are shown locked in a car somewhere in the desert.
Then the video cuts to an ISIL executioner who fires a rocket-propelled grenade at the vehicle, which bursts into flames purportedly killing the prisoners, who can be heard screaming before burning to death.
The second execution was the drowning of a group of five people locked in a cage that was lowered into a swimming pool.
After a few minutes, the cage is raised from the water showing the prisoners lying motionless on its floor.
The last part of the video shows seven men tied together with an explosive necklace around their necks.
The video then shows the severing of the prisoners’ heads when the explosives are detonated.
Syria has been grappling with a deadly crisis since March 2011. The violence fuelled by Takfiri groups has so far claimed the lives of over 200,000 people, according to reports. New figures show that over 76,000 people, including thousands of children, lost their lives in Syria last year.
Over 7.2 million Syrians have also become internally displaced due to the ongoing crisis, according to the United Nations.
ISIL, with members from several western countries, controls parts of Syria and Iraq, and has been carrying out horrific acts of violence such as public decapitations and crucifixions against all communities such as Shiites, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
