Revealed: ISIS Video Claiming to Show Hundreds of Children Being Executed is Actually a Year Old Propaganda Film

People were understandably horrified when a video was posted claiming to show ISIS slaughtering 200 children. But it turns out that the video is actually a year-old propaganda film, and while it does show ISIS conducting a mass execution, they were killing soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army.

A horrific ISIS video which purportedly shows 200 Syrian children being lined up and gunned by militants has been revealed to be a jihadi propaganda video from 2014.

The sickening mass execution video was posted online by an anti-ISIS activist based in Yemen and quickly started to draw condemnation from social media users shocked by the atrocities.

However the footage is believed to have filmed in late August 2014 and the victims are prisoners of war who were caught by ISIS after the jihadi group overran the Assad held Tabqa airbase in Syria.

Forced to lie side-by-side and with their faces in the dirt, the video shows about 200 Assad regime soldiers fighting in the Syrian Arab Army stretched out in a long line to the left and right.

Behind them, at least a dozen gunmen armed with assault rifles and handguns stand poised and ready to fire.

One militant then begins firing at point blank range – shooting each prisoner individually as he makes along the row of victims.

… In addition to the mass killings, the terrorists have also attempted to invent new ways in which to murder people.

Public beheadings, dismemberment, and throwing people from tall buildings are a common occurrence within ISIS territory.

Other killings are held in areas of significance. After the jihadis overran the ancient city of Palmyra, Syria, in May, they killed dozens inside its ancient Roman amphitheatre.

Of course, the fact that they were killing prisoners of war isn’t much better. But at least — for now — they haven’t resorted to mass murdering a group of innocent children.
