ISIS Butchers Involved In The Killing Of Army Recruits Are Hanged

Dozens of ISIS fanatics involved in the massacre of 1,700 Iraqi army recruits have been hanged in front of their victims' relatives. The 36 jihadists had been found guilty of involvement in the 'Speicher' massacre, named after a base near Tikrit in Iraq where the recruits were kidnapped before being butchered by terrorists.

Officials say relatives of some of the extremists' victims attended the mass hanging at Nasiriyah prison. ISIS captured an estimated 1,700 soldiers after seizing Saddam Hussein's home town of Tikrit in 2014. The soldiers were trying to flee from nearby Camp Speicher, a former US base just outside the northern city.

Shortly after taking Tikrit, ISIS posted graphic images of gunmen shooting the men dead after forcing them to lie face down in a shallow ditch.
