ISIS released a new execution video as graphically violent as previous ones.
In the highly edited video, which includes slow-motion photography and background music (apparently for dramatic effect), Islamic State group militants lead 10 men guilty of “apostasy” to a hillside purportedly in Afghanistan.
Militants are next seen burying explosives nearby.
In what appears to be a choreographed shot, additional Islamic State group fighters arrive on horseback wearing all black Muslim dress to assist in the executions.
The prisoners are marched in single file and made to kneel on the ground on top of explosives, with the men not knowing what fate awaits them.
Two armed guards stand by the prisoners to keep them in place and then sprint away only seconds before the explosives go off.
In the full video, which can be viewed here, the final scene shows the graphic results wrought by the brutal execution.
Last year, the Islamic State group released several videos containing the beheading of journalists and aid workers. As reported by Western Journalism, the group released a video in June of prisoners being executed by different methods, including drowning them in a cage, beheading them using explosive cord, and firing an RPG into a group of them locked in a car.
According to Fox News, the Islamic State group has also been engaged in selling women and children:
Last November, ISIS reportedly unveiled a menu of sorts for women and children for sale with women 40 and 50 years old sold for just $40, girls between 10 and 20 years old auctioned for $129 each, and children under 10 commanding higher prices. A Human Rights Watch report issued in April documented continued organized rapes, sexual assault, and other horrific crimes against Yezidi women and girls kidnapped from their homes and held as captives in Iraq and Syria.
