The Iraqi government will execute 36 members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS), who were found guilty of carrying out the 2014 Speicher Massacre that killed 1,700 Iraqi Army soldiers.

This heinous massacre reportedly took place on June 12th, 2014, when the Islamic State terrorists entered Camp Speicher near Tikrit and rounded up the soldiers by their religious denomination.

ISIS would then summarily execute all of the Shi’i soldiers, posting videos of their fighters dumping some of the bodies in the Tigris River after shooting the victims in the head.

Following Tikrit’s liberation in early 2015, the Iraqi Army unearthed the bodies of hundreds of soldiers that were executed by the Islamic State terrorists in June of 2014.

The Iraqi Armed Forces captured nearly 50 ISIS members that were believed to have helped carry out this massacre, trying them in a court of law immediately after liberating Tikrit.

Of the 47 captured ISIS members that were tried in February 2016, 40 were sentenced to death for their participation in the Speicher Massacre.

The Iraqi president Fou’ad Massoum immediately approved the death penalty for the guilty terrorists; this led to the execution of 4 ISIS members earlier this year.

The remaining 36 terrorists will be hanged by the Iraqi authorities some time this week; however, no date or time was given.

@leithfadel Should we praise the Iraqi government for this? 36 Wahhabis are equivalent to 1,600 of our men? Absolute nonsense

Its a start, but unless politicians who conspired to allow Daesh in, those who were too busy collecting money and the military commanders who were derelict in their duty should be punished too.

i wonder about non-muslim shias, thery abuse the Prophets’s companions, they dont accept the current Quran, they dont pay Zakaat, they believe Hajj should be done in Karbala. There was no Shia in the age of Holy Prophet (PBUH). O shias google about my statements. Please leave ur religion and embrace Islam.
ISIS is a terrorist group and what about the hizbuLlah supported by non-muslim country Iran and killing the innocent children women and aged persons coz they are Sunnis, This shia group more bigger terrorist than ISIS. Accept the reality

Shias are the true Muslims. 1. They abuse Yazid who massacred Prophet’s (PBUH) family. Wahhabis/Deobandis/Sunnis love Yazid and call him companion of Prophet (PBUH). 2. They live their lives according to current Quran. It is in Sunnis books, which say there are some pages missing in Quran. 3. They pay zakat to muslims not to you. 4. They perform Hajj in Mecca and respect the sacrifice of Prophet’s (PBUH) family in Karbala in the path of Allah. Fighting against your Wahhabi/Deobandi Caliph Yazid. 5. There were no Wahhabis/Deobandi/Sunnis in the age of Prophet (PBUH). Wahhahis/Sunnis were invented by your caliph… Read more »

Should you understand a bit of basic law and its common sense, then Who declares to be with ISIS (Mercenary entity from the whole world paid by Saudi Arabia and Quatar, armed by NATO countries, fighting any legal elected regime on behalf of CIA) is by any local or international law guilty of terrorism.

Daesh released many videos of the massacres they committed, their fighters didn’t hide their faces. After they were caught they confessed.

Exactly all terrorists. Every that terrorist who killed the innocent civilians, children, women, men aged persons. Now decide who are the terrorists? Only ISIS is terrorist? Syrian Air Force is also terrorist, google now how they are bombing the civilians. Google now non-muslim hizbuLlah shia group how brutally they r killing Sunni civilians. Google now the f*****g Russian air strikes killing innocent civilians. they all are terrorist including ISIS. if u dont agree, then you have to define the word TERRORIST.

Wouldn’t there have been much more than 50 (the number the Iraqi army captured over this) involved in the killing of 1,700 soldiers? Where are all the rest – still on the battlefields fighting?

For that you don’t need even 50 Isis members, you just need 1700 bullets. But on the other side now 50 isis members is too little to satisfy an urge for vengeance, so Iraqi officials should come up with something. Also even of those 50 (also an imaginary number) some are already dead, some still fighting, so on the trial there will be only a small fraction of the men responsible. In the eye-for-eye society it is not a sufficient satisfaction.

Funny how “Speicher” was named after a foreign soldier.
