DAMASCUS, SYRIA (6:00 A.M.) – Amaq Agency published 11 gruesome images showing what appears to be a massacre comitted on captured Syrian soldiers, seemingly young conscripts, near the Palmyra Silos on Wednesday.
According to the pictures, the ISIS raid saw four soldiers of the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) captured and 8 soldiers killed. At least one was beheaded in the highly graphic pictures.
Viewer discretion is adviced:
Nevertheless, the SAA captured the large Al-Shaer Gas Fields on the very same day, gradually pushing back the Islamic State as the latter depends increasingly on hit-and-run attacks and suicide bombings to slow down government advances in eastern Homs.
