They’ve executed captives by burning them alive, hanging them from crosses, and beheading them.
Now, the Islamic State group has come up with new ways to inflict terror on those who fight against them. A new video released by ISIS show the terrorist group’s prisoners being drowned to death in a cage, having their heads blown off with an explosive cord tied around their necks, and being positioned in a car that is then fired on by a rocket propelled grenade.
The SITE Intelligence Group, a research organization that tracks jihadist activity, said Tuesday that a new video of the barbaric executions was released by the Ninewa division of the Islamic State group in Iraq. The militants accused the men of spying.
More than a dozen men were seen in the video being executed using these previously unseen methods.
The graphic 7-minute video, which was reportedly shot in Mosul in Iraq, starts out with ISIS executing a group of accused spies by locking them in a car and having an Islamic State militant shoot the car with a grenade launcher, making it explode into flames.
According to The Daily Mail, the main section of the film show five men being locked in a tiny metal cage that has been suspended above a luxury swimming pool somewhere in the ISIS-held city of Mosul in Nineveh province.
Sections of the video were shot with an underwater camera designed to show the final moments of terror the men in the cage endured as they were lowered into the swimming pool.
Standing up straight with their legs bound, the men look reasonably calm until the moment the cage begins to be lowered into the pool.
As the water begins to enter, the victims start to panic, praying and pacing the tiny metal cell.
Once completely submerged, the video cuts to the high-tech underwater cameras, which show the men thrashing around until they appear to lose consciousness and fall to the floor.
The cage is then removed from the pool, and the dying men are seen foaming at the mouths as they lie piled on top of one another under the blazing sun.
Another murder scene shows seven captives in red jumpsuits being forced to kneel on the ground, when a masked jihadist ties an explosive cable around their necks. The prisoners are all connected by the same blue cable.
Seconds later the explosives are detonated, with HD cameras capturing the murder in full detail.
Several of the men are clearly decapitated by the massive blast, while others suffer horrific and fatal upper body injuries.
The film also includes interviews with prisoners, where they speak about the crimes they have been accused of and how they have been treated by the militants fighting for the Islamic State.
The video is horrifically graphic and it is not recommended to watch, but you can here if you must.
