Blood-thirsty Islamic State militants have released a sick new execution video showing a 19-year-old Syrian soldier being run over by a tank.
The soldier, dressed in an orange jumpsuit, is forced to confess driving over the dead bodies of jihadis with a tank, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The ISIS fighter, dressed in white, tells the camera the soldier’s punishment is to be run over by a tank while he is alive.

In the horrifying footage, the captive reveals he is 19-year-old Fadi Ammar Zidan before being handcuffed and placed in the middle of a road.
The man is run over by the tank and the video ends with shots of his lifeless body.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights claims it received information last month that ISIS would execute soldiers using this method.
The human rights organisation, based in London, claims this is the first execution of its kind carried out by the terror group.
Earlier this week, an American soldier became the first to be killed fighting on the ground against ISIS.
Master Sergeant Joshua Wheeler, 39, was killed during a raid in northern Iraq to rescue 69 Iraqis who were about to be executed by ISIS.
MSgt Wheeler is believed to have been a member of the Army’s top secret Delta Force, and his unit was supporting Kurdish fighters in the raid on the ISIS stronghold on Hawija.
Six ISIS fighters were arrested and more than 20 were reportedly killed in the operation.
