Video shows Pakistan Army soldiers committing War Crimes, lining up six blindfolded handcuffed boys to face a firing squad. The soldiers are heard talking in Urdu with a pronounced Punjabi accent conveying orders from an officer. In the final insult, one soldier walks up to each captive and asks them to recite their own last Islamic rites before walking away and then ordering the execution to proceed.
The footage seems to be from the Pakistan Army action against the Taliban in Pakistan’s Swat valley and even if we assume these young men and boys were Taliban soldiers, once captured, they were unarmed POWs and by executing them, the Pakistan Army committed a War Crime for which their top generals must be held responsible.
Such war crimes by Pakistan Army are common place in Balochistan where just this year they have abducted and killed over 500 young men and boys from the Baloch Students Organization (BSO).
