As Iraqi troops infiltrate ISIS-controlled Tikrit, more revenge killings are reported.

New sickening ISIS-related pictures have been made public. The various pictures show every type of torture ISIS has inflicted in previous propaganda videos and pictures. However, there is one detail that makes these new photos stand out among the others.


LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The newly emerged photos of torture claim to show Iraqi soldiers torturing Islamic State prisoners in what are being referred to as "revenge attacks."

Posted onto social media sites, the images are said to be taken by U.S.-trained Iraqi Special Forces as they advance and make moves against ISIS in Tikrit, Iraq.

The images, discovered by ABC News on Instagram, come forward just after Shi'ite militia leaders, fighting alongside Iraqi troops, named the current attacks to get Saddam Hussein's hometown back as an opportunity to avenge the deaths carried out by ISIS.

Stand up and Speak out - Stop Christian Persecution

The gruesome and shocking photos have not yet been verified, as far as origin and when they were taken.

According to retired U.S. Army Special Forces Lt. Col James Garvilis, the images "did not look like believe ISIS propaganda at all," suggesting they really were perpetrated by angry Iraqi troops.

An Iraqi Sunni preacher urges authorities to prevent Shi'ite militia from fighting with Iraqi troops in Tikrit if they are going to carry out revenge killings, according to Daily Mail.

Many of the Sunni people are fearful that if this doesn't get under control soon, the country would face "reignited sectarian tensions - such as the ones witnessed at the height of the war in 2006 and 2007."

"We ask that actions follow words to punish those who are attacking houses in Tikrit," Sheik Abdel Sattar Abdul Jabbar stated. "We are sorry about those acting in revenge that might ignite tribal anger and add to our sectarian problems."

After being shown the published photos, Iraqi Army spokesperson, General Saad Maan addressed an investigation being launched stating, "we don't have anything to hide."

The Iraqi troops were able to enter Tikrit for the first time earlier this week, taking back large portions of ISIS-controlled land. They expect to reach the center of the area within the next couple of days.

"For now access to combat areas is restricted and information about abuses may take time to filter out," explained Amnesty International's senior crisis response adviser, Donatella Rovera to AFP.
