The ROP body count continues to grow at an astonishing rate.
Via Daily Mail:
Sickening footage appears to show Islamic State militants parading 250 captured soldiers through the desert in their underwear before they are killed and their bodies piled on the bare earth.
An Islamic State fighter said the men were from the Syrian government’s Tabqa air base which extremists seized on Sunday – handing them warplanes, helicopters, tanks, artillery and ammunition.
The video, too graphic to be published in full, first shows dozens of men being marched through the desert and made to chant in Arabic wearing only their underwear.
It then fades to black and resumes on an image of a pile of bloodied bodies stacked on top of one another.
As the horrific footage progresses it pans slowly across a vast line of men who appear to be dead, and whose bodies have been laid out one by one.
The line forms a slow crescent across the desert, seemingly stretching to the horizon as militants stand beside it. Eventually, after more than a minute, the cameraman reaches the end of the line.
