The original uploader said that these were Kurdish men who were publically executed by hanging in Iran because of their religion. Hard to tell if it’s true or not. The video quite possibly is from Iran. The Islamic Republic of Iran does carry out the death sentences by hanging and we’ve had many videos of it on Best Gore so that’s nothing new. The only question is whether the condemned were really the Kurds or not. And if they are, whether being the Kurds was their only crime or whether the uploader merely used it to push his propaganda. They may have been criminals responsible for a heinous crime for all we know. The fact that they’re presumed Kurds may have had nothing to do with their execution. But that’s all left for speculation at this point.
I counted 5 men with noose around their necks. They each appear to be pretty young, maybe in their early 20’s? I think Saudi Arabia with their medieval executions by sword is much more merciful cause hanging takes much longer to kill and it’s an agonizing death. Plus them Iranians blast Islamic singing into the ears of the condemned making their death so much more agonizing. The last thing they get to hear in their lives is this god awful squealing that never seems to end.
All but the one in the dark shirt had their hands tied behind their backs for the hanging. Must have been a lousy job the executioner did that that man’s hands came undone. You can see there’s another man trying to tie his hands up again at the 0:52 minutes mark but it again comes undone so he’s hanged with his hands loose. Yet he accepts his fate and does not make an attempt to pull himself up the rope.
The frame on which the condemned were hanged appears to have been held in place on the far end with a crane. LOL… What’s the deal, Iran? You execute so many people by hanging over there, you should have these gallows built on every corner. Also – 5 men to go, but only two trucks which could hold two men each. One of the five had to kick his own table from underneath himself to get hanged. Lousy hanging indeed. And that singing…
