This is the moment a ginger-bearded ISIS barbarian ordered the beheading of an elderly prisoner - after accusing him of being a wizard.
The extremist can be seen using a microphone to read out charges in a town square near Damascus in Syria.
Another photo shows a blindfolded pensioner - accused of being a 'sorcerer' - being held down over a wooden chopping block by two more fanatics.
A crowd of men and boys watch on as an executioner wielding a sword decapitates the prisoner.
The nationality of the jihadist reading out the charges is not yet known. He had reportedly accused the man of being a 'practitioner of magic'.
The photos were released by ISIS in a report called the 'Implementation of the law of Allah in the presence of Muslims'.
As is often the way with ISIS executions, the killing takes place in public in front of dozens of onlookers.
A third photo shows the corpse of the man with his severed head placed on his torso.
According to Terror Monitor, the execution was carried out by the ISIS-affiliated Khalid Bin Al-Walid Army.
It emerged as the Syrian army escalated aerial bombing of a rebel-held valley northwest of Damascus.
An offensive was launched last week to recapture the strategic area where a major spring provides most of the capital's water supplies.
