‘He said in his ‘confession’ that his name is ‘Fadi Ammar Zidan’ 19 years old and he is from the village of Sian in Jableh area in the northern countryside of Latakia, he also said in the ‘confession’: ‘I joined the Army under contract with the Air Force Intelligence, and I registered the contract in the Airport of Hama, and they sent me to serve in the field of Sha’er, and stayed for the seventh month then they sent me to area named Jazl where I remained there four days then the Islamic State brought me, and I was in Jazl area and I was a tank driver, and I a used a tank to run over bodies of the Islamic State’s soldiers’.”
Standing over the kneeling prisoner, the ISIS member, his face partially hidden, explainsZidan will face the same fate he supposedly meted out to ISIS fighters, in accordance with Quranic verse (Sura 16, verse 126).
The bound victim standing in the middle of the road, in abject shock horror at what awaits him is seen hopelessly trying to hop away from the tank before being crushed under its tracks.
The 19 year old man’s death leads to ISIS members celebrating behind as the camera hones in on Zidan’s remains.
It is thought that the video was filmed in retaliation to a heroic raid by joint Kurdish-American forces in Hawija, Iraq last week, which saw 69 prisoners of ISIS set free.
