A foreign-backed terrorist who was seen eating organs of a dead Syrian soldier in a recent video has confirmed the authenticity of the clip.

In an interview with Time magazine, Khalid al Hamad, known by his nom de guerre Abu Sakkar, confirmed that the video is real and that he did indeed take a bite of the soldier’s lung.

The video shows him cutting out some of the soldier's organs and biting into one. During the interview al-Hamad has no regrets.


Other Syrian militants condemned the "horrific and inhumane" action and said he should be arrested or killed for committing the atrocity.


Human Rights Watch, which validated the video, issued a report on Monday in which it called on the United Nations Security Council to refer the Syria situation to the International Criminal Court to ensure accountability for all war crimes and crimes against humanity.


“It is not enough for Syria’s opposition to condemn such behavior or blame it on violence by the government,” said Nadim Houry, HRW’s Deputy Middle East Director. “The opposition forces need to act firmly to stop such abuses.”


“I have another video clip that I will send to them. In the clip I am sawing another Shabiha [pro-government militiaman] with a saw. The saw we use to cut trees. I sawed him in small pieces and large ones,” al Hamad told Time.


The Syria crisis began in March 2011, and many people, including large numbers of soldiers and security personnel, have been killed in the violence.


The Syrian government says that the chaos is being orchestrated from outside the country, and there are reports that a very large number of the militants are foreign nationals.
