ISIS Dangled Heads in Golan Heights to Goad UN Soldiers
In October ISIS reportedly posted heads of three “prostitutes” and two “pigs” from the Kurdish YPG forces (three female and two male) on display in Jarabulus, Syria just south of the border with Turkey.
ISIS captured and beheaded Syrian soldiers in the Golan Heights in April. According to a UN report the terror group then dangled the heads to goad UN forces in the area.
The Irish Independent reported:
Islamist rebels decapitated prisoners around the United Nations bases near where Irish troops were serving in Syria, a UN report seen by the Sunday Independent reveals.
The brutal beheadings in the Golan Heights, which have not been reported on, are described as “horrific atrocities” in the report by the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
The full horror of events that took place around the Irish and other UN troops in the area have so far been kept a closely-guarded secret by the Defence Forces and Government.
Last week, the Irish soldiers’ representative association (PDFORRA) called for psychological support services for soldiers returning from Golan, who might be suffering from post-traumatic stress.
However, there was no mention by senior military, Government or the representative association about the horrors the soldiers witnessed during their six-month tour inside Syria at PDFORRA’s annual conference in Sligo.
The UN report reveals the jihadists overthrew a Syrian Army position close to UN posts in late April.
UN troops had to stand by powerless as they then apparently murdered and beheaded prisoners.
It states: “In the afternoon of April 24, two members of the armed opposition [the UN term for al-Nusra, which is affiliated to al-Qaeda] displayed the severed head of a presumed Syrian armed forces officer as they passed UN position 80.“
