This execution is the first-of-its-kind by the “Islamic State”, the organization in the recent months has invented new ways of executions, like running over a member of the regime forces by a tank “because he ran over dead bodies of the Islamic State soldiers by tank”, in addition to executing people after forcing them to dig their graves by their own hands, and other ways of execution.
