As ISIS continues to spread its reign of terror across the Middle East, video has emerged of the group using an RPG (rocket propelled grenade) to execute a Syrian Muslim man who fought against the Islamic State.
Walid Shoebat, a former Muslim Brotherhood terrorist who converted to Christianity, shared the graphic ISIS-produced video on his site, which YouTube has since taken down. The video shows a Muslim rebel from eastern Syria (near the Iraqi border), Ibrahim Shraideh, tied to a post confessing to ISIS interrogators that he had used an RPG to kill two ISIS fighters. It is not clear whether the ISIS fighters were in a vehicle or protected position, which would be some likely scenarios for use of the weapon.
The ISIS fighters in the video say because Shraideh used an RPG to kill their fighters, they would use an RPG to execute him. They quoted the Quran as justification:
“And one who attacketh you, attack him in like manner as he attacked you.” (Q:2:194)
Shoebat shared the translated dialogue:
ISIS: Listen here, what’s your name?
VICTIM: Ibrahim Shraideh.
ISIS: Where are you from?
Victim: Abu Haman
ISIS: What have you done?
VICTIM: I have fired an RPG
ISIS: how many brothers of ours have you killed?
ISIS: You killed them?
ISIS: Ok very well, that’s not a problem.
ISIS to group: He’s an enemy of Allah. He killed to [sic] brothers with an RPG and by Allah’s will he’ll be punished the same way with an RPG.
Another Terrorist: The one who begins the mischief is the evil-doer.
The ISIS executioner then launched the RPG, killing the man.
