Fighters of PMC Wagner beat Syrian with sledgehammer, dismember and burn him, media
A video of the crime was made in the area of the field, where Russian mercenaries were located.
Fighter of PMC Wagner Stanislav D. may be involved in a brutal massacre of a Syrian, who was identified in the Arab press as a deserter from the army of Bashar al-Assad, Novaya Gazeta reports. The place on the video is similar to the Shair field in the Syrian province of Homs, from where, in the spring of 2017, the Russian mercenaries drove off out terrorists of the Islamic State (banned in the Russian Federation).
The name of the executed man was Mohammed Taha Ismail Al-Abdullah, also known as Hammadi Taha Al-Buta. On the video, he is beaten with a sledgehammer, then his head is cut off with a knife, his hands are cut with a sapper blade, after which he is hung upside down and burned. The execution takes place under laughter and a Russian song. The executioners also speak Russian.
At one point, the person who filmed the execution showed his face. Using the video, journalists found on social networks a similar person who had several business trips on behalf of PMC Wagner. His wife and acquaintances did not answer the journalists' questions.
The video was published on June 30, 2017, when the Russian mercenaries had already settled in Shair. On the video, the callsign of two participants in the execution is sounded: Volk and Pamir. Recently, a photo has appeared on the Web that shows the faces of the four executioners. On the body of the victim is written: “For the Airborne Forces and Intelligence [Services].”
