The Islamic State has released photographs of their attacks on the army base in Iraq's Anbar province. The Camp Saqlawiyah massacre has been dubbed as one of the most brutal attacks by the militant group so far.
According to a New York Times report, more than 300 Iraqi soldiers were killed, while hundreds have been missing since the attack on Camp Saqlawiyah.
The images from the assault on Camp Saqlawiyah shows the final stages of the attack, with the ISIS capturing the Iraqi 30th Brigade's base.
While the authenticity of the photographs cannot be confirmed independently, the pictures released by the group through its online supporters, have been found to be real till now.
The Islamic State's onslaught in the Anbar province lasted for almost two weeks, during which it was able to successfully cut off the 30th Brigade's Camp Saqlawiyah. The soldiers were under siege, without food and water and waiting for reinforcements, when the final attack came on 21 September.
Islamic State militants, disguised themselves as Iraqi soldiers, drove down to the Camp located in the north of Fallujah, and carried out a suicide attack using Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED).
"We thought this was the support we were promised was on the way," Captain Ahmed Hussein of the 8th Division told Washington Post.
"The first three Humvees were ahead of the rest with some military trucks. We just let them in."
The first Humvee exploded in the middle of the camp. The others two drove to the perimetre and detonated. The rest of the Islamic State convoy was held back at the entrance, where they carried out several more suicide bombings trying to break in, according to the survivors.
In the pictures released by the ISIS supporters, Islamic State fighters can be seen inspecting several M1 Abrams tanks, M113 armored personnel carriers and Iraqi Army Humvees destroyed in the attack.
Besides this, the pictures show that the Islamic State have captured several M113 armoured personnel carriers, donated to Iraq by the United States, besides several military trucks and weapons.
The group has also posted pictures of scores of dead Iraqi soldiers. Several soldiers have bullet wounds on their heads, indicating that they have been executed by the militants.
