Adding to the depravity of Islamic State’s (ISIS) barbarism is the punishment of being boiled alive; seven ISIS fighters experienced the gruesome execution for cowardice by fleeing the battlefield in Iraq. This follows the summary executions of 19 ISIS fighters who were shot for fleeing a firefight against security forces in al-Shuhada and al-Nassaf in Central Fallujah.
The seven who were boiled alive had their feet and their hands bound before being placed in the large pot of boiling water with a source saying
“This came after the issuance of death sentence against them by [ISIS] court.”
Boiling water has been used by the death-cult before, primarily against the ISIS sex slaves who refused or disobeyed ISIS members; disobedient girls would be burned with the boiling water to get them to submit and obey. A rescued ISIS sex slave told of the ISIS member, Al-Russiyah who had poured boiling water on her leg for not performing sex acts or reciting the Koran properly. She said,
“They forced me to say things from the Koran during the time they did their actions, and if I didn’t they whipped me.”
This is the first time that ISIS has publicly acknowledged that it’s boiling cowardly ISIS fighters alive who’ve fled the battlefield.
Iraqi forces declared Fallujah fully liberated after government troops routed remaining ISIS fighters from the city’s north and west under the close cover of U.S.-led coalition airstrikes. The battle, which began May 22, was the latest in a string of territorial defeats for ISIS in Iraq over the past year. At the height of the group’s power, in 2014, ISIS rendered nearly a third of the country out of government control, having blitzed across large swaths of the north and west and capturing Iraq’s second-largest city of Mosul.
Since then, it was estimated to control only 14 percent of Iraqi territory, according to the office of Iraq’s prime minister. More than 500 ISIS fighters managed to escape Fallujah throughout the five-week offensive, an Iraqi officer told The Associated Press on Thursday. Earlier this year, more than 1,000 ISIS fighters were estimated to have fled the operation that retook Ramadi, the Anbar provincial capital.
