ISIS executed 33 people in Syria this week and then dumped the bodies in a mass grave – a massacre said to be the terror group’s largest execution operation of the year, according to a human rights group.

Those executed were men all between the ages of 18 and 25 killed by slitting their throats, the Daily Mail reported.

“Thirty-three persons were slaughtered by sharp tools, and the marks of the slaughter appeared on their necks, where the mass slaughter was carried out on the outskirts of a hole dug by the organization, and was filled with blood,” a spokesman for the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said after the bodies were found on Wednesday, according to the Daily Mail.

“No one of the 33 slaughtered persons was beheaded, also no one of the executed bodies was identified,” the spokesman added.

“It is not known whether they were members of the regime forces and militiamen loyal to them or if they were fighters of the factions, or, whether they were prisoners who were sentenced to be executed by the organization after arresting them earlier,” the spokesman said.

“This is considered the largest and first mass executions carried out by the ‘Islamic State’ organization in 2017,” he added.

The murders come after the gas attack on the Syrian town, Khan Sheikhoun, which also happened this week, according to Fox News.

The attack left at least 86 people dead.

The same day the slaughtered bodies from the mass execution were found, Reuters reported that at least 31 people were killed – including 14 police officers – and more than 40 injured after attacks that took place overnight in Syria’s northern city Tikrit.

The overnight attacks were carried out by Islamic State militants.
