New video showing Syrian rebel brutality emerges

Posted on: September 6, 2013

A video smuggled over the Syrian border by a former rebel features a mass execution of government soldiers by the Jund al-Sham group fighting Assad. The latest example of rebel brutality comes as Washington prepares to intervene into the conflict.

The video, obtained by New York Times and which has gone viral online, is a mobile phone recording of an execution that took place in April.

Seven government soldiers are shown shirtless on their knees in somewhat fetal positions with their faces to the ground. Some have their hands tied behind their backs.

Rebels stand behind the condemned men, pointing their firearms down at them and listening to their leader chant the verdict.

“For 50 years, they are companions to corruption,” the commander of the group says. “We swear to the Lord of the Throne, that this is our oath: We will take revenge.”

Having pronounced that, the man shoots the soldier closest to him. Other gunmen immediately follow suit to execute the rest of the captured soldiers. The dead bodies are then dumped into a well.
