    Deash terrorists have burned alive two Turkish captives and executed two more, posting the videos on social media.

    Two servicemen, Serter Taş and Fethi Şahin, were set on fire by terrorists before dying. Daesh militants kidnapped the two men along the Syria-Turkey border approximately one year ago.

    Daesh published a 19 minute video depicting the chained up soldiers, a portion of which has been subsequently published by media outlets. The Mirror has reported that the men seen in the footage were burnt in Syria, but that the location remains unclear.

    Within an hour of the release of the video, the Turkish government reportedly blocked access to social media across the entire nation.

    ​Two more Turkish soldiers, Kıvanç Kaşıkçı and Muhamed Duran Keskin, died by gunshot wounds to the head after terrorists captured them just last month near al-Bab, approximately 40 km northeast of Aleppo.

    On August 24, Turkish forces with support of a US-led coalition aircraft began a military operation to clear Daesh from the Syrian border town of Jarabulus. The joint forces continued the offensive southwest after the city was retaken.

    Last year, Jordan retaliated for the execution of a Jordanian pilot, again burned alive, by killing four al-Qaeda operatives in Jordanian custody.
