DAMASCUS, SYRIA (0:00 A.M.) – Controversial amateur footage emerged on Thursday evening, depicting what appears to be an Egyptian Army unit executing three alleged ISIS militants, held prisoners of war, in cold blood.
The video was recorded at an undisclosed location in the Sinai desert which has witnessed an Islamic State insurgency uprising in recent months:
Al-Masdar News could not independently verify the video authenticity which could possibly be a false-flag operation carefully staged by the Islamic State.
Earlier in the day, the media wing of the Egyptian Armed Forces released a video of aerial sorties conducted against ISIS militants in the Sinai Peninsula. 19 jihadists were killed over the past week, the army outlet stated.
