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.

    • ISIS cares 😀 Wait, you’ll soon have some pro-salafist activists to criticise human rights violations, thus, it can perfectly be false-flag propaganda and well, in case of warfare, I’m not sure that non-regular combatants are protected from being executed on the spot by Hague convention, thus, it also may depend on country’s law : such thing would be considered a murder in most of democracies, especially in the EU.

    • @joseph, can You tell from their dialect from which part of the country and from which religious group or town?

      p.s. I know that with some languages like Sorbian You can tell – whether they are Lutheran or Catholic. Just by hearing their language variant.

      With German dialectal speakers You can sometimes even tell what part of a bigger town or area.

      This does not only work in European languages. In Syria You can tell whether they come fro Horan, Damascus or Latakia… …

      • Personally I don’t know if it’s Iraqi. Maybe. I don’t know Iraqi very well. What is definitely true is that it’s not Egyptian like it’s spoken along the Nile. However, this is Sinai. Maybe they are local forces. I don’t know the dialect they speak down there.

  1. IMHO false flag or other IS propaganda. Even if You killed POWs You would not post it.

    p.s. You do not do such things because it is good for the fighting spirit of the enemy. They cannot give up and they know it. That is IMHO one of the two reason why religious texts ask for a human treatment of POWs. So You it is not only forbidden because it is against the conventions of war (see DbSx comment & I do not know why some voted it down. BTW @ DsSx. The smaller and weeker nations claim that even insurgents & guerrilla are protected. Like the French who claim their resistance was protected, tongue out.).

    Egyptians have a specific dialect (Like kpi & joseph noted it).
