ISIS Releases Video Of Execution Of 200 Captured Syrian Troops

The Islamic State has released pictures it claims shows the execution of 200 Syrian soldiers after the capture of a key military air base earlier this week. The unconfirmed reports, which contain pictures and video footage of hundreds of soldiers being led into the desert dressed only in their underwear, were circulated on social media by IS supporters early this morning. Unlike in previous Islamic State propaganda exercises, no pictures have yet been circulated of dead or mutilated bodies. This comes after Twitter late last week cancelled the accounts of any Twitter user who circulated images of the decapitated photojournalist James Foley. But the accuracy of the pictures and video footage is being disputed, with some Syrian sources saying the men being marched into the desert were actually Sheytat tribesmen being executed earlier this month.
