A mass grave found in Iraq points to ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) as having gassed its own militants, proving that ISIS draws a hard line of obedience not only for the civilian population within the territory of its so-called “caliphate,” but also for its own fighters. According to reports out of Iraq, there were at least 200 bodies found in the mass grave.
Daily Mail reported August 10 that reports out of Iraq allege that ISIS extremists bound the feet and hands of their own fighters, locked them inside of a car, and then allowed the vehicle to be filled with carbon monoxide gas until the occupants were dead. The gassing apparently was the execution method used for the sentencing carried out on ISIS militants that had fled the battlefield.
American Herald Tribune, which cites unnamed Arabic-language sources regarding the horrific finding, quotes those websites as providing details of how the 200 militants were executed.
“ISIS tied up hands and feet of its militants, put them inside a closed-door car with all the windows rolled up and opened gas hose sent into the car until they died.”
