ISIS butchers have carried out one of the most terrifying executions in the terror group’s history by turning a prisoner into an airborne bomb. They took pictures and videos to turn on propaganda channels and show a prisoner and bound Syrian soldier being dropped head-first from a height and exploding on impact with the ground. They tied the man arranged with long sticks seemingly to keep him upright and aerodynamic. He was then fitted with a helmet filled with explosives, complete with an impact combine on the top to trigger the device when his head hit the ground.
Turning the prisoner of war into a human bomb may well have been vengeance for devastating airstrikes by Syrian and Russian armed forces on ISIS positions. A recent UN Security Council report said ISIS has held on to several Syrian regions including Yarmouk, where the brutal execution took place. In his monthly report to the council, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres also said military escalation continued across Syria, including in deescalation areas.
The ISIS destruction of history, culture, and lives has gone on for far too long. What will it take to stop this war?
