Terrible video shows the incredible row of bodies, shoulder to shoulder.

The Islamic State has committed another atrocity, this time murdering as many as 250 Syrian soldiers following a half-naked death-march across the desert sand to their place of execution. The entire way, as a video reveals, the men were compelled to chant and sing praises to the Islamic State.

Forced to chant praised to their executioners, jubilant ISIS terrorists killed approximately 250 Syrian prisoners.

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Islamic State terrorists circulated a shocking video of a death march and mass execution of Syrian soldiers that took place right after they captured the Syrian airbase of Tabqa. Now the Islamic State has seized a base, fighter planes and munitions, although they may lack the expertise to use much of the material, especially the planes.

Act now to save Christians from this fate!

Despite the seizure, it represents another victory for the terrorists and has resulted in another gruesome mass-execution. They have shared the death march and mass execution in a video on social media. You may watch that video here. Be warned, it shows hundreds of men being killed.

WATCH: One of the videos produced by the Islamic State (contains raw footage, redirects).

The images below will speak for themselves. Warning, images show deceased victims.
