Washington: A new video has emerged on the Internet showing a Syrian rebel leader summarily executing a line of kneeling soldiers loyal to President Bashar al-Assad regime with bullets.

The video comes on the heels of another one that appeared to show a rebel leader biting into the heart of a slain Assad loyalist.

The video was shot in the eastern province of Deir al-Zor, and the systematic killing was done by a member of the al-Nursa Front, or Jabhat al-Nusra, a branch of al Qaeda.

According to Fox News, a third video hit the Internet on Tuesday, showing rebels from the Raqqa province publicly executing three military officers loyal to Assad.
The barbaric videos are not likely to quell the unease in Washington over its efforts to help rebels topple the regime of Assad, an international news agency reported.
