isis execution AfghanistanThe Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group has released a horrific beheading video which purportedly shows the execution of a prisoner carried out by the affiliates of the group’s proclaimed Khurasan province.

The prisoner is shown wearing an orange jumpsuit and is paraded through a mountainous region although the exact location has not been verified.

A commander of the terror group appearing in the video welcomes the allegiance of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU) to ISIS terrorist group.

It is yet not clear on what charges the prisoner was executed with the identity of the victim yet to be confirmed although the supporters of the terror group claim a member of the Afghan security forces was beheaded.

The Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), declared as a terrorist organization by the United States, announced earlier last month that the group is part of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) terrorist group.

A video was released by the terror group which purportedly shows the IMU’s leader Usmon Ghazi and his fighters taking oath of allegiance to ISIS terror group and its leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Another militant leader identified as Sadullah Urgenji also issued a video statement in March this year claiming that the group fights for IMU in northern Afghanistan.

Urgenji said his group was recognizing the authority of ISIS leader Baghdadi while pledging allegiance to the terror group.

The allegiance by IMU to ISIS terrorist group comes shortly almost two weeks after the death of the Taliban supreme leader Mullah Mohammad Omar was confirmed.

IMU issued a statement earlier this month demanding clarification from the Taliban regarding Mullah Omar’s death while accusing the group lying his death.
