12 victims, 12 masked executioners: ISIS beheads a dozen men accused of fighting for Al Qaeda in new sickening video
- Militants savagely executed fellow jihadis for not joining the Islamic State
- 12 victims are understood to have fought for Al Qaeda and Jaish al-Islam
- They are forced to 'repent' for their crimes in individual filmed interviews
- Footage then shows them being led through the desert to execution site
- Victims are then handed over to their killers who brutally behead them all
Savage jihadis fighting for the Islamic State in Syria have brutally beheaded 12 men accused of fighting for the terror group's Al Qaeda and Jaish al-Islam rivals.
Filmed close to Syrian capital and regime stronghold Damascus, the sickening footage shows the terrified men being interviewed and paraded in front of the camera before their bloody execution.
After 'confessing' to the crime of opposing ISIS and failing to declare allegiance to the terror group's bloodthirsty leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the men are led out into a desert clearing where they are forced to their knees and each man executed by a different masked member of the Islamic State.

Marched: The men walk uncomfortably due to the way their arms are bound, with each forced to wear to bright orange jumpsuits now synonymous with the fanatics depraved beheading films
The video - titled Repent Before Being Overcome - was released by the lesser known Damascus branch of the Islamic State but bears all the high-tech hallmarks of the terror group's other slick and professionally edited murder videos.
Hollywood-style graphics begin the clip and show the 12 victims hunched over as they are dragged through a remote stretch of desert to the site where they will be murdered.
The men walk uncomfortably due to the way their arms are bound, with each forced to wear to bright orange jumpsuits now synonymous with the fanatics depraved beheading films.
Curiously the men are led to the site by heavily armed men wearing full battle fatigues but with their faces totally exposed. The victims are then handed over to executioners, who cover their faces.
In a slick bit of editing before the murders, the footage momentarily rewinds and fades into a montage of Al Qaeda and Jaish al-Islam fighters battling ISIS.
This is likely to be a kind of reminder to the video's viewers that the three jihadi groups remain fierce rivals despite having a common enemy in Syrian president Bashar al-Assad.

BRITISH WOMAN HELD CAPTIVE BY AL QAEDA FOR SEVEN MONTHS IN SYRIA IS RELEASEDA British woman who was captured by Al Qaeda in Syria and held for seven months has been released after the militants found out about her long history of mental illness.The 31-year-old was freed after managing to send a secret Whatsapp message to London based lawyer Tasnime Akunjee, who then spent two weeks negotiating with jihadis based in Harem city.After presenting Nusra Front fighters with evidence that the woman - who is understood to have crossed into Syria from Turkey to teach English - has a history of mental illness, the militants released her on 'humanitarian' grounds without demanding a ransom.Mr Akunjee also represents the families of three teenage schoolgirls from Bethnal Green Academy in East London who fled the UK to join ISIS earlier this year and are now feared to be members of the terror group's fearsome all-female religious police force, known as the Al-Khansa Brigade.
Over the next few segments, the 12 prisoners are interviewed about the so-called crimes and are forced to confess that they wish they had joined ISIS before it was too late.
The overall theme of the video is along the same lines, and sends a clear signal to other rebel groups fighting in Syria that they must declare allegiance to ISIS 'before being overcome'.
While speaking directly into the camera, the men appear clean-shaven - a rarity for jihadis and something likely to have been intended to humiliate the men before they are killed.
Seconds later the clip cuts back to the victims wearing orange jumpsuits being led to their deaths.
After being marched to the execution site, the armed jihadis take a step back and another group - all of them masked and a wearing different style of combat gear - step forward to carry out the beheadings.
One fighter whose face is slightly most exposed than the others rants in Arabic and issues another warning that other jihadi groups fighting for ISIS must accept Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as their leader or otherwise face certain death.

Over the following three minutes, the video follows the same sickening format as so many ISIS murder videos released by the terror group over the past year.
Once the lead executioner finishes ranting at the camera, the depraved militants begin to execute the victims, pushing their fingers into the men's eyes while cutting their throats with small knives.
The doomed men wince in agony before dying, at which point the camera cuts to the altogether too familiar site of the victims' heads being placed on their backs as a final act of humiliation.
The murder of fighters loyal to Al Qaeda's Syrian branch - known as the Nusra Front - comes despite the fact the jihadi groups have worked together on several operations in recent months.
ISIS was, of course, once part of Al Qaeda before leaving the international terror network and self-declaring the establishment of a caliphate that it claims governs Muslims worldwide.
While publicly the groups still only ever speak of one another as enemies, they do appear perfectly willing to work together if the results of a twin-prong attack on a regime target or rival rebel group would be mutually beneficial.

ISIS beheaded an al-Qaeda leader in its de facto Syrian capital

Isis has beheaded a senior Nusra leader in Raqqa.Twitter/Isis
The Islamic State militants have beheaded a senior leader of Syrian offshoot of Al Qaeda - Jabhat al-Nusra - in Raqqa.
The slain Jabhat al-Nusra leader was identified as Abde Al-Bara Al Iraqi. The execution was carried out on 15 June in al Na'im.
UK-based monitoring group Syrian Observatory For Human Rights, confirming the reports of execution, said it has received a video showing the beheading of the Nusra leader.
In the video, the Nusra leader is shown kneeling on the ground, while an executioner brandishing a sword says that he was being beheaded for opposing and fighting the Isis.
A crowd of onlookers, including young children, witnessed the beheading, SOHR added.
Nusra Front and Islamic State are both Sunni groups that once used to be close allies, but over the year, as Isis grew in prominence inside Syria, both militant groups turned into arch-rivals.
In 2014, Al Qaeda even released an online statement insisting it had no links with the Isis militants. Ayman Mohammed Rabie al-Zawahiri, the current leader of al-Qaeda, even rejected an attempt by the Isis to merge with the Nusra Front, BBC reported.
