ISIS Films of Death Becoming Too Frequent

Yet another video has been released from the Islamic State, showing prisoners locked in a cage who are killed. Through different segments, the viewer is able to see how draconian the Islamic State really is.

In one segment of the video, prisoners are shown locked in a cage and lowered into the water and drowned in the ISIS stronghold of Mosul, even with underwater footage. In another, prisoners are locked into a car and shot by an ISIS jihadi with a grenade launcher. In yet another, prisoners are chained together through explosive necklaces, which are then detonated, resulting in decapitation.

So far, 16 people have been subjected to execution methods like these. Not limited to the filming of the beheading of several British and American hostages, the burning to death of a Jordanian pilot, and others who have been shot or stoned to death for one reason or another that ISIS deemed worthy of a horrific death.

All of the filmed deaths are split up between interviews with prisoners who talk about how they had been treated by the Islamic state and what they are being accused of. Then their deaths, shot in HD quality.

The Islamic State is known for its violence, but its film skills are quickly becoming more readily available, allowing the terror of them to be brought to everyone’s homes.
