The senior Pentagon non-commissioned officer has warned ISIS on Facebook to surrender or die gruesomely.

Army Command Sgt. Maj. John Troxel, the U.S. military's top enlisted leader and senior enlisted advisor to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said members of the Islamic State will face a violent death at the hand of coalition forces of they continue to fight, CNN reported.

"I understand that I speak for every enlisted person in the Department of Defense," Troxell once said. "And I can't take that lightly."

"ISIS needs to understand that the Joint Force is on orders to annihilate them," Troxel said on Facebook. "So, they have two options should they decide to come up against the United States, our allies and partners: surrender or die. If they surrender, we will safeguard them to their detainee facility cell, provide them chow, a cot and due process.”

"However, if they choose not to surrender, then we will kill them with extreme prejudice, whether that be through security force assistance, by dropping bombs on them, shooting them in the face, or beating them to death with our entrenching tools."

CNN reported the Islamic State has lost most of the land it once controled in Syria and Iraq with the help of U.S. and coalition forces. Six in 10 Americans said in a December 2016 CNN poll they believed that America's action against ISIS was going well, up from 45 percent in similar poll in 2014.

The U.S. military will continue its mission in Syria until land reclaimed by coalition forces there are stabilized, CNN reported, according to the Pentagon.

Troxel, who has been senior enlisted advisor to the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff since December 2015, advises senior Army leaders on topics like joint and combined total force integration and utilization, health of the force, and joint development for enlisted personnel, according to the Army.
