ISIS releases second beheading video; victim a Kurdish soldier

Following the execution of American journalist James Foley less than two weeks ago, the ISIS has released a second video showing another man in similar orange boiler suit being decapitated by a jihadist in black mask.

The alleged victim this time was a captured Kurdish Peshmerhga fighter and the execution took place in Mosul, Iraq as the Great Mosque of Mosul can be seen in the background.

The video is distinctly similar to that of Foley’s, well lighted and even the costumes are well- coordinated. The orange uniform is thought to be in mocking the Guantanamo base, where prisoners used similar suits.

In the beginning of the 6-minute video, believed to be uploaded on You Tube by ISIS supporters on Thursday, 15 men in similar orange jumpsuits (including the victim) were shown. The men are said to be captive Kurdish Peshmerga soldiers from an air base in Tabqa a few days ago. (Click here to read more)
