New ISIS Video Shows Execution of Christians

As the Islamic State (ISIS) terror group has spread its tentacles across the Middle East, the horrors of its violent actions against those who don’t share its extremist beliefs have also spread. Yediot Achronot reports that a new video shows the mass executions by ISIS of Ethiopian Christians:

A new video published Sunday by the Islamic State terror group claims to show two mass executions in Libya. In the video, reportedly shot in Libya, a group of Coptic Ethiopians is executed by a firing squad and another group by a knife to the throat…

According to ISIS, the first group being executed was “adherent of the Ethiopian church” – a possible reference to Coptic Christians – and the execution purportedly took place in Libya’s Fezzan region…

“Despite the cross, we have returned,” the ISIS narrator said with guns pointed at the first group.

According to the video, the execution is a message to Christians in the region according to which, if they fail to convert to Islam they will have to pay with their lives or face execution at the hands of ISIS. A similar fate befell the Christian community of Raqqa, Syria.

ISIS has gained a significant foothold in Libya, posing a clear and imminent threat to both Egypt and Italy.
