According to British media reports, Special Air Service (SAS) operators who are participating in the final push against the remnants of the Islamic State (ISIS) came upon a massive grave filled with severed heads. The SAS operators found the grave near ISIS’ last enclave in Baghuz, which is located on the banks of the Euphrates River in eastern Syria.

The grave is described as numerous trash cans containing more than 50 heads of executed Yazidi women who had been used as sex slaves by the perverse terrorists. Press representatives from the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which is mostly comprised of Kurdish Peshmerga, seconded the reports stating that a massive grave with dozens of headless women’s corpses was found by advancing coalition forces.

Throughout ISIS’ reign of terror, which began in 2014, the Yazidis suffered disproportionately. In the initial stages of the jihadi blitzkrieg that took them close to Baghdad, more than 3,000 Yazidis were killed while thousands more were enslaved. The United Nations (U.N.) characterized the killings as genocide.

The reports state the SAS force supporting the final assault against ISIS is a 65-man Troop from B Squadron. The 22 SAS Regiment is composed of four Sabre Squadrons (A, B, D, G), each containing a headquarters element and four troops. Every troop specializes in a different spectrum of special operations insertion methods (air, water, ground mobility, and mountain). Two Territorial (Reserve) Army SAS regiments (21 SAS and 23 SAS) provide additional flexibility to British commanders, who can assign secondary tasks. Those may include foreign internal defense, a mission the SAS operator who single-handedly stopped the terrorist attack in Kenya was doing, and the territorial SAS components to preserve the active duty unit for more important and time-sensitive operations.
