The Syrian opposition group, Jaysh al-Islam has executed 18 alleged Islamic State militants. A video emerged of the rebel organization imitating many of the jihadist group’s own execution recordings, including similar sound effects and visuals.
The clip, which was just under 20 minutes long, showed fighters from Jaysh al-Islam (Army of Islam) wearing orange prison attire, that victims of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) are often executed in.
However, the ‘executed’ became the ‘executioners,’ as they slayed 18 prisoners, who were dressed in black cloths, reminiscent of IS’s main dress style.
The slick production, with numerous computer graphics and special effects included, showed the IS prisoners being marched in unison, and chained together at the neck and at their hands.
The alleged members of IS were then forced to kneel in a long line and were executed with a bullet to the head. The shots were filmed from numerous angles and also included some gruesome close-ups.
The captives were killed partly in revenge for the deaths of at least of three of the rebel group’s members, who were beheaded by the jihadist terrorist organization last week, AFP reports.
The video also included numerous use of sectarian language, while it also accused the group of betraying Sunni Muslims and allying with Shiite Muslims and “Nusayris,” which is a derogatory term for the Alawite sect, to which the Syrian President Bashar Assad belongs.
