Is­lamic State fighter ac­cused of slaugh­ter­ing 60 sol­diers

The Kurdish Globe - - News -

An Is­lamic State (IS) fighter ac­cused of slaugh­ter­ing 60 sol­diers in one of the terror group's most grue­some mass ex­e­cu­tions was forced to chew a san­dal as he ap­peared in front of news cam­eras in Iraq.

In Arab cul­ture, even show­ing the soles of your shoes is con­sid­ered a great in­sult.

The man - named on so­cial media as Ad­nan Ab­dul Ridha - was re­port­edly ar­rested for his role in the bloody Spe­icher Camp mas­sacre where an es­ti­mated 770 un­armed Iraqi air force cadets were cap­tured, gunned down and buried by Is­lamic State thugs.

An Iraqi court used satel­lite im­ages of the site where they were killed, as well as IS's own pro­pa­ganda video of the killings, to sen­tence 24 IS mem­bers to death for their role in the mas­sacre.

Ridha is ac­cused of gun­ning down 60 of them him­self and could also be sen­tenced to death although the Iraqi Se­cu­rity Forces have not con­firmed this.
