“This is our ball… It is made of skin #WorldCup” reads a spine-tingling tweet from members of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). The tweet was posted with a photo of a Sunni police chief’s head–cut off from his body.
The Twitter account was taken down within a few hours after the tweet was posted.
ISIS, an al-Qaeda-inspired group, has been using social media to present its conquests in photos and videos to the world as the group continues to spread terror around the country by mass executions, robbery, and even freeing prisoners.
In the video of the Sunni police chief’s last moments, the clip shows the militants knocking on the chief’s home in the middle of the night. After answering the door, they blindfolded the helpless chief and beheaded him.
Another video shows ISIS militants firing guns at civilians along the street while they drive around in a car.
In another bone-chilling video, the Jihadists abducted a pro-government commander together with is two sons. They forced them to dig their own graves and then cut their throats. An ISIS leader turns to the camera and says, “I advise whoever is with the Sahwa to repent and quit.”
ISIS claims to have slain over 1,700 Iraqi soldiers and law enforcers in order to take over Baghdad. More than 500,000 locals have reportedly escaped to spare themselves from the fatal violence of the Islam extremists. However, U.N. Human Rights Chief Navi Pillay said her office is yet to verify this claim, as the reports she is receiving only states hundreds were killed, not thousands. Nonetheless, Pillay warned people of the violence in the state.
“We’re not going to allow ourselves to be dragged back into a situation in which, while we’re there we’re keeping a lid on things, and after enormous sacrifices by us, after we’re not there, people start acting in ways that are not conducive to the long-term stability and prosperity of the country,” U.S. President Barack Obama said from the White House South Lawn.
The U.S. officials said the Chief Commander is thinking of using drones to conduct an airstrike, as well as increasing “surveillance and intelligence-gathering,” according to The Blaze reports.
