WARNING GRAPHIC CONTENT Iraq president Fuad Masum has given the go-ahead for the hanging of 36 terrorists who shot hundreds of men at close range in a mass grave in 2014.

Thirty-six ISIS fighters are set to be executed in Iraq this week for the notorious massacre of 1,700 soldiers.

Some of the soldiers in Camp Speicher survived the onslaught on 12 June 2014 and told horror stories of how their colleagues were rounded up for slaughter.

During the horrifying killing, ISIS militants packed hundreds of men into trucks and told them they would be returned to their families – but instead they were taken to a nearby riverbank, lined up and mercilessly shot at close range.

Photos from the scene showed masked ISIS fighters tying up the cadets and firing at them as they lay down in mass graves in the desert.

Thirty-six of the 40 militants convicted of the killing in Camp Speicher in Tikrit will be killed this week, Iraqi authorities confirmed.

President Fuad Masum approved the executions after video from the massacre emerged showing detailed evidence of the men involved.

Majid Ameen, the dad of one of the military pupils killed, told the Times: "We are pleased with the president's decision."

Propaganda videos released at the time showed hundreds men in plain clothes on the back of a truck  being executed with machine guns.

ISIS has been in retreat in recent months as Iraqi and Kurdish forces move in on the terrorists with the help of US air power.

ISIS is desperately clinging on to the areas it still controls in Iraq and Syria, Mirror reported.
