New propaganda from the Islamic State has emerged showing the brutal executions of 15 alleged Iraqi spies, the Wall Street Journal reports.
The 7 1/2-minute video shows ISIS fighters loading three of the men, hands bound behind their back and clad in orange prison jumpsuits, into a car. A masked man then blows up the car with a rocket-propelled grenade. The men can be heard screaming as the car burns.
The video then cuts to a second execution. Masked terrorists load five men into a cage and then seal it with padlocks. The cage is lifted off the side of a pool of water and then slowly lowered down until the four men are submerged. An underwater camera shows the men screaming and struggling to escape. The cage is then raised back above the water, and the men are seen foaming from the mouth as they die.
In the final part of the video, seven men are tied together and forced to kneel. An explosive necklace is then tied around each of their necks. The explosives are detonated, severing their heads.
The video also shows the accused spies confessing to their alleged crimes of espionage before their executions.
According to the Wall Street Journal, the video was recorded in northern Iraq. A narrator says that the men are being executed because the gave coordinates for U.S.-led air strikes on the ISIS-held city of Mosul. The video shows the destruction caused by those strikes, and ISIS claims a child was among those killed.
