ISIL Takfiri terrorists have decapitated at least a dozen members of rival militant groups in Syria on charges of fighting against them.
The ISIL extremists, in a video titled Repent Before You Are In Our Hands released on Thursday, claimed the murder of 12 captives near the Syrian capital, Damascus.
The prisoners, dressed in orange jumpsuits, are seen pinned to the ground and kneeling in a field before masked ISIL militants force them to the ground and behead them with small knives.
ISIL said the 12 rival militants were captured following fierce clashes in Eastern Ghouta on the outskirts of Damascus. Three of the men were identified as members of the foreign-sponsored terrorists group, Jaish al-Islam, which has been fighting Syrian government forces, and a fourth from al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front.
Meanwhile, ISIL terrorists have killed five people in the northern Iraqi city of Tal Afar, located 420 kilometers (260 miles) northwest of the capital, Baghdad.
Saeed Mamouzini, the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP)’s spokesman, said the ISIL militants executed the victims by firing squad in front of a large number of onlookers. The Takfiri terrorists had accused the five men of espionage and collaboration with Iraqi security personnel.
The developments came only two days after the Takfiri group released a gruesome execution video that showed Iraqi men being drowned in a cage and killed in other barbaric ways in Iraq’s northern province of Nineveh.
Some men, who were confined in a cage, were drowned while others were put inside a car and blown up with a rocket-propelled grenade. A few others were killed by explosives tied around their necks.

The Iraqi army, backed by Kurdish forces and volunteer Shia and Sunni fighters, has been engaged in operations to drive the ISIL terrorists out of the areas they have seized since June 2014. Syrian government forces are also fighting against the extremists.
The Takfiri militant group has been committing heinous crimes against all ethnic and religious groups, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Izadi Kurds and others.
