Turkish-led forces film themselves executing a Kurdish captive in Syria

Source: Washington Post

BEIRUT — Videos posted on social media showing at least one execution-style killing have called into question the discipline of the soldiers engaged in Turkey’s near week-long effort to seize territory controlled by Kurds in northeastern Syria.

The most gruesome and explicit of the videos shows Turkish-allied Syrian fighters pumping bursts of automatic fire into the body of a bound man lying on the side of a desert road as a gunman shouts to his comrades to take his phone and film him doing the shooting. Another trembling, handcuffed man crouches on the opposite side of the road as the shooting erupts. “Kill them,” one man is heard shouting.

The video is one of a series of photographs and videos posted on Twitter accounts of the Turkish-backed rebel groups and circulated by the U.S.-allied Syrian Democratic Forces that suggest some of the Syrian rebels participating in Turkey’s offensive to capture territory in Syria might have committed war crimes.

Another fleeing pig has been liquidated by the hands of the National Army,” one of the fighters says as the others clamor to be filmed. “He was fleeing in an armored car.”

3. Thought 45 said it would be "humane?" He has zero idea or control. Kurds were disposible for 45.

Like most of the planet in his reptilian eyes.
