Diyala Governorate, Eastern Iraq. (here) An unsettling video showing a teenager being executed by an Iranian backed, Iraqi Militia Groups.
A photograph is taken of the ‘boy’, as the group of men check the teen over. Slapped about and obviously frightened, it’s only a few moments later that his life ends with a automatic fire and a round to the head.
As bad and as heartless as it seems this type of treatment of prisoners is common where collaborateurs are known to exist.
The group are unable or unwilling to take a prisoner, these missions are kill only. A Prisoner would only be a liability, a drain on resources.
This video also offers an opportunity for the Iraqi Militia to make a statement to Daesh.
“We take no prisoners”
