The fate of the Kurdish fighters remains unknown since the footage does not show the execution.

A new video, apparently released by the Islamic State, shows 21 Kurdish fighters paraded in cages through the crowded streets in the Iraqi province of Kirkuk.

The Peshmerga fighters can first be seen in separate cages. They are then interviewed by an Islamic State militant. The video cuts to black after the hostages were forced to kneel in front of their captors.

New Islamic State video shows Peshmerga being paraded through Kirkuk province in cages. Not as gory as previous vids.

The fate of the Peshmerga prisoners remains unknown since the footage, titled “Healing the Chest of Those who Believe,” does not show the execution. Howver, Shiraz Maher, a senior research fellow at the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation based in King’s College London, assumed that the prisoners were later killed.
