Barbaric turf war escalates in Afghanistan as ISIS execute three ‘defectors’ days after the Taliban warned terror group to stay out of the country
Islamic State militants have executed three fighters accused of defecting to the Taliban as a brutal turf war escalates between the rival factions in Afghanistan.
The killings come days after the Taliban sent a letter to ISIS warning them to stay out of the country, saying there is room for only ‘one flag, one leadership’ in their fight to re-establish strict Islamist rule.
One video posted on pro-ISIS accounts shows a line of armed fighters standing behind two kneeling men who are shot dead by one of the militants with a handgun.
In a separate execution, pictures appeared to show another alleged defector being beheaded.
