The hulking Islamic State executioner known as the “Bulldozer of Fallujah” may have revealed himself in a recent beheading propaganda video.
The video is a typical ISIS propaganda piece, except it features a towering bearded man believed to be the Bulldozer armed with a knife. Three Kurdish prisoners, believed to be of the Peshmerga forces, are seen kneeling before him, bound and blindfolded wearing orange jumpsuits.

Prior to beheading the three men, the massive man gives the usual ISIS rant to the camera, threatening Kurdish Peshmerga fighting ISIS forces in northern Iraq and Kurdish Regional Government president Masoud Barzani.

[dcquiz] Bulldozer became infamous due to his appearance in several other ISIS execution videos, although in his past exploits his face has always been covered. He is responsible for beheading several men and severed the limbs of at least one 14-year-old boy named Omar who refused to join ISIS. Omar was caught running supplies to Syrian rebels fighting ISIS during a battle in Deir-el-Zour province. For his refusal to join after his capture, Omar lost both a foot and hand to the Bulldozer who forced a large group of children to watch.
The propaganda video follows the start of a major offensive operation to retake Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, from ISIS. A combination of Iraqi Security Forces and Kurdish Peshmerga, backed by U.S. support units and air power, began the operation last Thursday.
