Not the best inducement to join ISIS.


The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) shared images Monday showing the jihadis training recruits for new operations in Yemen by kicking them straight in the groin.

The photos—which were shared by pro-ISIS channels on encrypted messaging application Telegram—were allegedly taken in a military camp located in the Yemeni province of Bayda and named after former ISIS second-in-command Abu Mohammad al-Adnani, who was killed in an August 2016 airstrike later claimed by the U.S. military in Syria. The group claims the pictures show a new batch of would-be militants graduating in anticipation for upcoming operations in war-torn Yemen, but not before the trainees were subject to some excruciating punishment.
