BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:40 P.M.) – The Iraqi security forces have arrested one of the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL/IS/Daesh) members that helped carry out the 2014 Speicher Massacre of over 1,500 Iraqi cadets and military personnel in the Salaheddine Governorate.
The Islamic State member has since been transferred to the competant authorities where he will be tried for his participation in this heinous act.
On June 12th, 2014, the Islamic State began the gruesome massacre by carrying out different types of executions.
Several cadets were ruthlessly executed by single shots to the head before the Islamic State terrorists threw their bodies in the river.
The Islamic State’s executions at the Speicher Camp marked the deadliest massacre carried out by the terrorist group since they first emerged in the Middle East and North Africa.
The Iraqi Army has since liberated the Speicher Camp and all of the Salaheddine Governorate after a fierce battle with the Islamic State terrorist group.
