The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) released on Saturday a new footage of the bloody massacre it perpetrated last years in the city of Tikrit, nearly 140 km to the northwest of Baghdad.

The sickening footage shows the stone-hearted jihadis mass killing new recruits for joining the Iraqi Security Forces.

Up to 1700 young men (mostly Shiite recruits) have been brutally executed in Speicher military near Tikrit when the extremist fighters stormed the base in June 2014.

The group built a notorious reputation for massacring large numbers of their opponents by all means available.

In the video, a jihadi is shown shooting down an army Helicopter with a personal portable anti-aircraft missile. Another horrifying section shows the victims being shot in the head from a very close range and then thrown into a river.
