Marched to their deaths: Sickening ISIS slaughter continues as 250 soldiers captured at Syrian airbase are stripped then led to the desert for mass execution
As the horrific footage progresses it pans slowly across a vast line of men who appear to be dead, and whose bodies have been laid out one by one.
The line forms a slow crescent across the desert, seemingly stretching to the horizon as militants stand beside it. Eventually, after more than a minute, the cameraman reaches the end of the line.
The precise death toll is uncertain and other sources put it at lower than 250, but at least 150 bodies are visible in the shaky video.
Before they were killed, the men's captors chanted 'Islamic State' - to which they replied: 'It will remain'.
Islamic State won a week-long battle on Sunday to capture the Tabqa base, which is 25 miles from their Syrian stronghold in Raqqa.
Syria's authorities insisted at the time that their soldiers had 'successfully regrouped' - suggesting they were later hunted down by the militants and executed.
Video footage has already suggested Islamic State fighters have drones which were used to shoot reconnaissance footage of an army base.
Today's reported mass killing also underscores how the group uses images of violence as much as violence itself to terrorise its opponents, as it sweeps further into Syria and Iraq.
Nadim Houry, deputy director of Human Rights Watch for the Middle East, described the video as 'another ISIS war crime'.
