Harrowing pictures have emerged which appear to show captured Kurdish fighters paraded in cages by Islamic State militants through the streets of Kirkuk, Iraq, in images eerily similar to what was seen when Jordanian pilot Lieutenant Muath al-Kaseasbeh was burnt alive.
The new images, first reported in the Daily Mail, come as it was reported that Islamic State have made their first strategic gain in months, capturing the town of al-Baghdadi, near an Iraqi army base where US soldiers are training troops.
The captives in the video, who it is claimed are fighters for the Kurdish peshmerga, appear to be chained inside the cages wearing the ubiquitous orange jumpsuits, as crowds cheer and flags are held aloft.
Reports suggested that the procession, where militants waved AK-47s, took place in the Hawija district of the city in northwest Iraq, where Kurdish and Islamic State forces are battling for control. Kurdish forces have also regularly displayed the dead bodies of IS fighters in the streets of the city, the Huffington Post reports.
Some claims that what ISIS does has nothing to do with Islam, and that it is simply un-islamic behaviour. But here is a quote from the Quran, which shows that ISIS is following it to the letter.
Surah 4.56. Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allah is Ever Most Powerful, All-Wise.
