Man Who Escaped Islamic State Prison Provides Horrifying Details on What Group Did to Christians

A member of the Iraqi military who escaped an Islamic State prison explained in a new interview how the terror group treated Christians.

Speaking to the Independent Journal, Master Sergeant Karam Saad said he was captured in June 2014 and, as a prisoner, witnessed the brutality of the group toward believers in Christ.

“They tortured the sh** out of the Christians and some died in the process,” Saad told the website.

He then provided horrifying details on exactly how the group tormented them.

“They would take some and lock them in a kind of casket, and set it on fire from the inside,” he said.

Saad, who said he escaped after three nights in prison, criticized President Barack Obama’s strategy for fighting the group.

“The airstrikes are not effective and there are really no functional operations. The coalition is bullsh**!” he told the Independent Journal. “They might get a couple good shots here or there, but for the most part it’s not an effective strategy.”

Saad added, “Under the Obama administration, America is not taking this fight seriously.”
