ISIS has released a significant new execution video from the historic city of Palmyra, in the Syrian Desert.
Child executioners are shown in the video being forced to brutally slaughter a group of more than 25 regime soldiers.
A crowd of men and boys gathered in the restored ruin waiting for the slaughter, many wearing military uniforms and headscarves
ISIS fighters can be seen standing or sitting on top of the ancient ruins, watching over the crowd as they wait for the slaughter.
A leader spoke to the audience, in front of an enormous ISIS flag draped across the back of the stage.
On a command, the condemned soldiers were killed simultaneously with a shot to the head.
ISIS captured the historic city on May 21, and has been systematically destroying the city’s treasured ancient monuments.
The group was accused of executing hundreds of people in and around Palmyra since it swept into the city in May, after a lightning advance across the desert from its stronghold in the Euphrates Valley to the east.
ISIS is known for using children – dubbed ‘caliphate cubs’ – as suicide bombers, soldiers and executioners in their attempts to instill fear across Iraq and Syria.
