Members of the Islamic State drowned a man in shampoo for telling a radio host that he planned to drink a toast and “clean himself” of the terrorist group’s filth.

In an interview with a noted Mosul-based radio host, the recovering former ISIS member said he would “buy shampoo to clean himself” of ISIS filth. In response, ISIS promised to track the man down and kill him “measure for measure,” by drowning him in water mixed with shampoo.

And, that is exactly what the group did.

You can watch the video here. (WARNING: the content of the video is graphic).

The video is about 78 seconds long, and features the typical high quality editing and production found in most ISIS propaganda videos. The victim is seen clothed in an orange prison jumpsuit, another ISIS hallmark, and is dunked into a large, clear box full of water. A masked ISIS adherent is then seen pouring shampoo into the water, followed by continued dunking of the victim.

ISIS has used several horrific and creative methods to execute its victims since its rise in 2013, including blowing up a man with a backpack bomb and setting a Jordanian fighter pilot on fire in a metal cage.

Mosul is currently under siege from the Iraqi Security Forces, supported by U.S. and Operation Inherent Resolve coalition air power. While the coalition has made progress in the city since invading in October, ISIS forces are still putting up a fight and continue to terrorize Mosul’s citizens.
