Baghdad, Iraq: A horrifying video has surfaced online showing an Islamic State militant beheading three prisoners on a street in Iraq.
According to a report in the Daily Mail, the ISIS militant, before beheading the prisoners, threatens Peshmerga forces.
The video shows three prisoners, dressed in orange jumpsuits, sitting with their knees folded and head bent down. The ISIS militant can be seen standing behind one of them with a sharp knife in his hand. He then rants something looking at the camera and later beheads one of the captives.
In the video, the militant is also seen threatening Kurdish President Masoud Barzani.
Islamic State group has reportedly suffered heavy losses in their caliphate as Kurdish forces have taken over the Hasakah province, which was earlier captured by ISIS. In retaliation, the terrorist group beheaded three Kurdish prisoners.
Islamic State group has previously lost their stronghold in Tikrit, Kirkuk and in some parts of northern Iraq. Recently, ISIS fighters were driven out of Ramadi and Palmyra by Syrian forces.
Backed by US-led air strikes, the Kurdish forces plan to retake the city of Mosul from ISIS.
