Graphic YouTube video shows Al Qaeda stopping Syrian truck drivers and murdering them for not being Sunni VIDEO
A new video posted on YouTube purports to show the graphic murder, execution style, of three Syrian truck drivers who were killed by Al Qaeda operatives for not being Sunni.
With the Al Qaeda-linked ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) group is waving the tractor trailers off the side of an Iraqi road and then proceeds to interrogate the unsuspecting drivers about their “prayer habits, trying to discover if they are Sunnis or members of the Alawite minority in Syria.”
The truck drivers are seated in a line in the median of the road after failing their quiz. The drivers are then shot in the back of their heads firing squad style by the self-appointed law enforcers, jury, judge and executioner.
Chants of Allahu Akbar (“Allah is the greatest”) are audible in the background.
More than a dozen shots are fired into the men’s bodies, even after it appears they are already dead.
Joshua Landis, who is President of the Syria Studies Association in the U.S. and is Director of the Center for Middle East Studies at the University of Oklahoma tweeted, “Iraqi #ISIS stop three #Alawite truck drivers; ask them how many time they kneel for prayer. Wrong answ. Are executed.”
