Sunni Islamists in Iraq: "We Executed 1700 Soldiers"

ISIS

Armed terrorists from the organization that fights in Northern Iraq and Syria claim that 1700 Iraqi soldiers were executed and also pictures of the executions was published, according to a report in the American newspaper New York Times.

The Islamist revolt is being orchestrated by a terror group called the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, a radical terrorist organization that is connected with Al Qaeda that in recent weeks took over a great part of Iraq and now it is 150 kilometers north of Baghdad. There is a doubt to the authenticity of the report and there is no proof to what they stated. Senior level officials in the Iraqi leadership have a doubt related to what the organization stated and they claim have no idea about a massive execution of Iraqi soldiers.

If the terror groups' allegations are correct, it speaks about the worst war crime that was done in Iraq or Syria during recent years, which is a greater number than the people killed in the chemical attack in Damascus last summer. 1400 people were killed in that incident. The terrorist organization claimed that all the people who were shot to death were Shias. If that is true, it increases the chances of Iran interfering with what is going on in Iraq. There are worries about Shia revenge attacks in Sunni areas in southern Iraq, where most of the population is Sunni.
