Iraqi father 'slays seven ISIS fighters' over son’s execution
Wielding an AK-47, Basil Ramadan gunned down the group of militants at a checkpoint in ISIS-controlled Tikrit
An Iraqi father was reportedly gunned down by fighters belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) after he slayed seven of the Islamist militants for executing his son, the Daily Mail reported on Tuesday.
Wielding an AK-47, Basil Ramadan gunned down the group of militants at a checkpoint in ISIS-controlled Tikrit before he was gunned down himself, according to local media.
His act of revenge came after the execution of his son, Ahmed Basil, 18, at the hands of ISISI last month.
Basil and seven other Iraqis, all believed to be police officers, were executed in a video released by the militant group. They were accused of infiltrating ISIS and spying for the Iraqi government in Baghdad.
In the video, a man identified in a caption as Ahmad Basil Ramadan is accused of giving information on the location of houses occupied by ISIS soldiers.
The daily said the group of prisoners appeared to have been taken to a quiet area away from the city where they were shot in the head.
Afterwards, ISIS’s security forces are seen posing for a photo.
