The Iraqi government will reportedly execute 36 ISIS terrorist militants this week, as punishment for the notorious Camp Speicher massacre of 1,700 soldiers. At least 1,566 people — comprised mostly of Shia military cadets and other soldiers — were gunned down near the former US Army base in Tikrit, on 12 June 2014.

Iraqi president Fuad Masum approved the death penalty for the convicted men by mass hanging, despite protests from human rights groups. Forty of the 47 defendants who were accused of involvement in the massacre were sentenced to death earlier in February 2016 at the central criminal court in Baghdad.

During the horrifying killing, ISIS militants packed hundreds of men into trucks and told them they would be returned to their families – but instead they were taken to a nearby riverbank, lined up and mercilessly shot at close range.

Photos from the scene showed masked ISIS fighters tying up the cadets and firing at them as they lay down in mass graves in the desert.

Thirty-six of the 40 militants convicted of the killing in Camp Speicher in Tikrit will be killed this week, Iraqi authorities confirmed.

Videos released at the time showed hundreds men in plain clothes on the back of a truck being executed with machine guns.

ISIS has been in retreat in recent months as Iraqi and Kurdish forces move against terrorists.
