ISIS New Execution Method: Stabbing Through The Heart

Images have emerged of a heavily-built executioner ramming a knife through the chest of a man deemed to have committed “crimes against the caliphate”.

The victim, named by news agency ABNA as Abdulhadi Essa al-Salem, was stabbed in the heart before being shot in the head in the ISIS stronghold of Raqqa, Syria.

Shocking photos, posted on Twitter by Syrian activist group Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, show the victim then being crucified in public.

It is the latest gruesome method of execution carried out by ISIS extremists, who infamously set Jordanian pilot Moath al-Kasasbeh on fire before dumping rubble on his burning corpse.
