Iraqi "The Beheader" has decapitated 50 ISIS fighters

A VENGEFUL Iraqi chillingly called the "The Beheader" after decapitating 50 IS fighters has told how easily he finds it to execute his enemies.

Falah Aziz claims to have killed more than 130 jihadis in a long-running battle to free his war-torn country of those that fight under the black flag.

And - as grisly footage is released of him holding a severed head - he says he has made beheading his own "speciality", The Sun reported.

The gruesome clip shows him slaughtering the young man lying on the ground and then parading through the streets with his "trophy".

A Facebook profile picture also shows him smiling as he poses with a bloodied knife.

Aziz hits back at claims he is no better than his foe by saying: "Every day, I swear, I slaughter them, as they've slaughtered us.

"You don't know what you're going to do. What they did to us, we must do to them."

According to the Swedish news website Expressen, which spoke to Aziz, other videos show hooded men being beaten as they sit with their hands tied behind their backs.

Another prisoner can be seen being suffocated.

Several of the videos clearly show the Iraqi Police Force and Iraqi Armed Forces watching on in silence as he tortures prisoners and cuts their throats.

In the beheading film, Aziz, who - who wears military combats - can be heard crying: "The knife has done its work."

He then stares straight into the camera and says: "This is your blood, you dogs."

Speaking to Expressen, he tried to explain to war correspondent Magda Gad how it felt to cut someone's head off.

"Just that feeling, I can't explain how at ease I am with it," he said.

"They (ISIS) have driven us to it. What they've done has killed our compassion.

"Finding your brother slaughtered, or your mother slaughtered. What are you going to do? You don't know what you're going to do. What they have done to us, we must do to them."

Aziz claims to have beheaded around 50 people in the past three years.

He said he was spurred on to fight back after his four older brothers Ahmad, Ghazwan, Bashar and Waed all died at the hands of ISIS.

"Now they're martyrs. One of them was a teacher. What did he ever do to get slaughtered? He has five children," he said.

"Four of my brothers died in my arms. I'm the youngest. I can't explain. As they slaughtered my brothers, I slaughter them. I expect to die."
