Following a major rebel offensive in Syria’s central province of Hama, a number of troops serving with the Syrian Arab Army (SAA) have been taken into custody as prisoners of war by Islamist factions.

Newly leaked pictures reveal at least two of the Syrian soldiers were decapitated shortly after their capture. Jund al-Aqsa (Syrian al-Qaeda group) and Jaish al-Izzah (U.S. backed rebel group affiliated with the Free Syrian Army) were responsible for the beheading, according to information obtained by Al-Masdar News.
