Quality of this video is somewhat compromised plus I don’t have any reliable background info, but it is what it is.
Apparently, the victim in the video was executed by members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (الدولة الاسلامية في العراق والشام) also known as ISIL – the flag suggests that it’s indeed the case. The victim looks to me like a boy, maybe in his early to mid teens, though I could be off on this one. He was executed with a gunshot to the head and dumped head first into a hole before the killers popped a few more rounds into him. What cowardice to murder such young men, too young to fully understand what is going on.
Best Gore member russ0 contacted us with the following info:
I am the original owner of this file but don’t worry I am not here to complain about taking it down. I am simply providing further information on this video.
The video came from the same insurgent that was detained by my unit in Iraq in the summer of 2008. Technically speaking, these guys are NOT ISIL as that did not exist back then. They were a small AQI cell operating in our AO of Western Iraq. The reasoning behind all of the executions was to kill off Shiite Muslims as they were viewed as apostates according to the Sunni insurgent.
As far as how I came upon these videos: I was a video forensic examiner in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I decided to keep the particular videos from this case to show friends how utterly brutal the people were that we were fighting. I recently decided to upload them for the hell of it.
Props to russ0 and Best Gore member Cold World who originally provided the video:
