Editor’s note: This story contains extremely graphic content that may be offensive to some readers.

New video posted on YouTube purports to show the graphic murder – execution style – of three Syrian truck drivers who did nothing more than belong  to a minority faith the local Al Qaeda affiliate does not like.

In the video, a small band of Islamist radicals with the Al Qaeda-linked ISIS (Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) group is seen 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.

When they “fail” the Sunni jihadis’ pop roadside quiz, the truck drivers are seated in a line in the median of the road and shot in the back of their heads firing squad style by the self-appointed law enforcers, jury, judge and executioner.

The three truck drivers are shot in the back repeatedly, as 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.”

To learn more about the video, TheBlaze reached out to Jonathan Spyer, senior research fellow at the Global Research in International Affairs Center, who speaks Arabic and has been monitoring the Syrian conflict.

“The men first claim to be Sunni Muslims, and the gunman asks them various questions relating to Sunni religious practice. They are unable to answer the questions and in the end admit that they are Alawites,” Spyer explains of the incident that he says likely took place near Ramadi in Iraq’s Anbar Province.

The perpetrators wear military-type uniforms and black scarves over their heads, holding machine guns, while at least one is fully masked with a large ammunition belt hanging around his neck.

It appears the incident may have been pre-planned for public relations purposes, as the scene shown in the YouTube video was filmed from two separate angles.

“The ISIS organization has emerged as a scourge in rebel controlled areas, carrying out kidnappings and sectarian killings. This is an example of the phenomenon,” says Spyer.

While Christians are at risk daily in countries like Egypt, Syria and Iraq, the video provides an example of the dangers facing other other religious minorities in the crosshairs of Sunni radicals, including practitioners of the Alawite faith, an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam of which Syrian President Bashar Assad is a member and protector.

“The jihadi uses the insulting term ‘nusayri’ to describe the Alawites.  The jihadis are referred to as the ‘lions of Anbar’ and the incident appears to be taking place in Anbar province, Iraq, probably close to the border with Syria.  The men are referred to as ‘nusayri (alawi) spies’ in the title,” Spyer adds.

At the end of the video, one of the ISIS members is seen throwing a burning object at one of the trucks, which begins to burn and smoke.

Here is the video that was posted on YouTube. Warning, it is graphic beginning shortly after the 8:00 minute mark:

  1. Please stop wasting my time with these stories it is clear you don’t understand the Islam or the Muslim Mind. It does not matter who is in power they will use Nerve gas or any weapon on who ever is on the bottom or who they fight with. It is Islamic Culture, there are no ethical limits in Islamic war, and every means is used from terrorism to genocide. Read Patai’s The Arab Mind and Salzman’s Culture and Conflict.

    The truth is Islam is Evil, what part of “EVIL” do people not understand? It enslaves the mind, body and soul of a person. It must be destroyed.

  2. The whole situation in the Arab/Muslim world appears more and more vicious. Naturally the murderers think like Nazis when they allow videos go public. The dire the pictures of misdeeds the more respect to the perpetrators. The jihadis think that we all submit when they show off their depravity.
    Despite all the failures in the Arab world they have still not learned the lesson: their way of thinking and their evil inclination drags further down the people practicing evil. – Maybe the time when their lands are totally desolated, and just ruins of their Capitals are left the few left will be as peace-loving as today’s Germans and Japanese.

    1. That’s what a country becomes when it’s mildfed on a doctrine to hate others, and justify murder of others. There exist no moral format in Muslim culture where they assess their own conduct as sinful.

  3. education is the key ignorant masses. Al Qaeda formed by the British, friends of USA, lost tribe of Israel. They are armed and will kill sunnis, shias alike. Do some research. Robin, taken your big pharam meds yet?
