Social media: ISIL executes soldiers, takes hostages at Syria base
New pictures posted on social media show the ISIL Takfiri terrorists summarily executing several Syrian government soldiers in the country’s troubled northeast.
This comes as the ISIL terrorist group stormed the Tabqa military airport in the Raqqa Province on Sunday, after days of fighting which claimed more than 500 lives.
In one of the pictures, a group of the ISIL terrorists are seen shooting at least seven men identified as army personnel. Other photos show at least two dozen soldiers taken hostage.
Several dead bodies and abandoned military hardware around the base can be also seen.
Experts say the photos circulating online appear genuine and have been corroborated by other reports.
This is while the Syrian military says it is continuing airstrikes on the terrorists in the volatile area.
ISIL militants fighting against the Syrian government have committed numerous mass executions during the ongoing conflict.
Since the outbreak of the Syria crisis in March 2011, several video clips have been released showing the grisly crimes perpetrated by the Takfiri terrorists against innocent civilians in the crisis-torn country.
ISIL terrorists have been behind many of the deadly bomb attacks targeting both civilians and government institutions across Syria over the past three years.
The ISIL violence has spilled over to neighboring Iraq. Recently, a similar gruesome video was released, purportedly showing members of the ISIL Takfiri terror group brutally killing Shia Muslims in drive-by shootings in Iraq.
The terrorist group has links with Saudi intelligence and is believed to be indirectly supported by the Israeli regime.
