A new report has recently come out revealing that Muslims, all members of ISIS, made a major slaughter at the al Shaer gas field in Homs province, Syrian, killing 270 innocent lives including national guard members, security guards and employees, after storming and seizing the al Shaer gas field in Homs province on Thursday, the group said. The death toll could climb. Another 90 security guards and employees are missing, the anti-goverment activist group added.
Shoebat.com obtained a video of the ISIS proudly displaying the dead bodies of some of the workers and guards showing one Jihadi from Germany slapping and mocking the bodies:
Word of the slaughter in Homs came after ISIS violence against Christians and other minority groups in Iraq in recent weeks.
Observatory director Rami Abdel-Rahman said:
A Britain-based Observatory said that the victims consisted of both members of the Syrian army and gas field staff.
Eleven of the dead were civilian employees, while the rest were security guards and National Defence Forces members
Rami also revealed that the majority of the victims were shot execution style:
A large majority of the men killed were executed at gunpoint after being taken prisoner following the takeover of the camp
A report issued on this massacre reads:
Syrian activists said government forces have launched a counterattack to recapture a gas field seized by Islamic extremists, as the death toll from three days of fighting rose to 310.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Saturday the fighting in the Shaer gas field in the central province of Homs is among the deadliest between government forces and the group calling itself the Islamic State, since the Syrian uprising began more than three years ago.
The Islamic State captured the Syrian gas field on Thursday. Government forces launched an attack late Friday on the Shaer field and by Saturday had regained parts of it.
The observatory said the militants have killed and executed 270 soldiers, guards and staff during the assault.
They added that at least 40 militants had been killed and around 30 people managed to escape to a nearby gas field in central Syria. It has not been possible to immediately verify the report.
The group, formerly known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, has declared a “caliphate” in areas it now controls in Syria and Iraq.
