Islamic State (ISIS) executes 150 Syrian troops

  • Over 150 Syrian troops have reportedly been executed by Islamic State (ISIS) militants, in the latest instance of mass killings carried out by the Sunni Islamist fighters.

    A majority of the troops killed had been captured when Isis seized the Tabqa airfield a few days ago.

    ISIS has also released a video purportedly showing the beheading of a Kurdish fighter who was detained in northern Iraq.

    Meanwhile, more than 40 United Nations peacekeepers have been detained by armed men in south Syria and dozens of peacekeepers are stranded in the area near Golan Heights, reports indicated.
