Isis militants have released a disturbing video purporting to show militants shooting a young man dead with a bazooka.
The shocking footage, which has not been independently verified, was reportedly filmed in Syria’s eastern province of Deir Ezzor on Wednesday. It shows a man tied to a post and surrounded by armed militants, who ask his name, place of residence and tell him to recite his alleged ‘crime’.
Abu Mohammed Hussam, an activist with the Syrian group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, said the man was executed after being accused of killing two Isis fighters and working for the Free Syrian Army. Mr Hussam said the victim was a member of the Shaitat tribe.
