The Islamic State executed dozens of its own fighters for fleeing the battlefield, according to local media reports cited by Russia Today.
Ahlul Bayt News Agency reported that ISIS buried alive some 35 of its own fighters outside the town of Qayyarah, near Mosul. The fighters had reportedly run away from a battle against Iraqi government forces near Kirkuk.
IraqiNews.com also reported the number executed at 35.
The Islamic State is notorious for its ultraviolent treatment of those it regards as criminals and dissenters. It regards anyone who refuses to submit as guilty of apostasy and therefore deserving of death.
