ISIS executes “spy” with Browning .50 cal machine gun at close range

(Warning: Graphic Content)

Yesterday, ISIS released a video titled “So Take Warning” that contains another gruesome execution of a man accused of being a spy.   During interview portion of the video, the condemned man refers to himself as a “rafidi”- a derogatory term for Shia Muslims (or Iran as a whole) used by Sunnis.

After the interview, an ISIS executioner uses a zip tie to tie the mans hands around a pole in preparation for execution.

Knowing the death is imminent, the man trembles as he waits to be executed.

The executioner takes aim with a Browning .50 caliber machine gun, which was first introduced to war by the United States in WWII and is still used by the U.S. military today.


The M2 .50 cal has a maximum effective range of 1,500 meters for point targets, such as a person.


The executioner fires a single shot into the alleged spy’s abdomen, resulting in an extremely painful wound that rarely causes immediate death.


The executioner uses a Kabar style knife slash the spy’s throat.


After slashing the spy’s throat, the executioner uses the knife to sever his neck vertebrae -completely removing his head.


After holding the spy’s head on display for the camera, he wipes the blood off his knife onto the victim’s jumpsuit and places his head his body.


The video contains a significant amount of anti-American propaganda prior to the execution.  The entire video can be viewed on Heavy.
