Daesh (ISIS) has claimed executing Yemeni soldiers in a video posted online Thursday, AFP reported.

The group claimed to have beheaded four soldiers and shooting another 11 dead. According to SITE Intelligence Group, a US website monitor, the extremists were seen in the footage sharpening their knives and killing four men, whose heads were seen on the ground in Yemen's southern province of Shabwa. 

The footage shows ten other soldiers crouched to the ground. Most were then shot once in the forehead. SITE said the "Shabwa Province" claimed to be a division of Daesh and to have carried out the attacks. 

Daesh announced it had arrived in Yemen earlier this week in a video released online.
