The Islamic State group executes three Assyrian Christians

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that the Islamic State group executed three Assyrian Christian captives who were among over two hundred Christians abducted by the group back in February.

 

A video showing their murders was released by the terrorist group this week but the Observatory believes their executions were carried last month.

 

According to the report the three men were killed two weeks ago on Eid al-Adha, the Muslim holiday also known as, the Feast of Sacrifice.

 

The Islamic State group threatened to execute the remaining over two hundred captives if a ransom of $50,000 per hostage is not paid to them.
