The ISIL group has released a video purportedly showing the beheading of a Kurdish man in the city of Mosul.
The footage uploaded on the Internet on August 28 shows several ISIL Takfiri militants standing by the captured Kurdish man.
The victim is then seen kneeling near a mosque before being decapitated.
The video, entitled “a message of blood,” meant to send a warning to the Kurdish forces fighting the ISIL in northern Iraq.
The terrorists warned that they will execute more Kurds if Kurdish leaders continue to back the US.
On Wednesday, the ISIL terrorists summarily executed four Iraqi officers and dozens of people in two separate incidents in the western province of Anbar.
This comes more than a week after the terrorist group released another gruesome video showing the beheading of US journalist James Foley.
Since early this year, Iraq has been facing a growing militancy by the Takfiri ISIL Takfiri group and its allied militants, who have taken over areas in the country’s west and north. The crisis has deteriorated since June, when the ISIL declared a so-called caliphate in the territories they have seized.
The ISIL terrorists have threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds, in Iraq. They have been committing heinous crimes in the areas they have taken, including the mass execution of civilians as well as Iraqi army troops and officers.
The Iraqi army, backed by Kurdish forces and thousands of volunteers, is engaged in fierce fighting with the ISIL militants to push them out of the captured areas.
