A horrific video was published on social media showing ISIS militants capturing and burning alive to Turkish soldiers. They also executed two more soldiers at point blank range.
Two soldiers identified as Serter Taş and Fethi Şahin were set on fire by militants before dying. Islamic State militants captured the two men along the Syria-Turkey border approximately one year ago.
Two more Turkish soldiers, Kıvanç Kaşıkçı and Muhamed Duran Keskin, died by gunshot wounds to the head from point-blank range after militants captured them just last month near al-Bab, approximately 40 km northeast of Aleppo.
Last year, Jordan retaliated for the execution of a Jordanian pilot, again burned alive, by executing four al-Qaeda operatives in Jordanian custody.
