Iraq president Fuad Masum has approved the execution of 36 Camp Speicher killers who shot hundreds of men at close range in a mass grave in 2014.

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

The Iraqi president has approved the mass hanging despite protests from human rights groups.

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.

On 12 June 2014, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) killed at least 1700 Shia Iraqi Air Force cadets in an attack on Camp Speicher in Tikrit. At the time of the attack there were between 4,000 and 11,000 unarmed cadets in the camp; Mirror reported.
