The executed men are believed to have been local policemen and members of the government-backed Sahwa paramilitary group. They were captured in a battle with IS militants in Jubba.
Last month the IS executed dozens of people after attacks on al-Baghdadi and the nearby air base of Ain al-Asad where hundreds of US marines are housed.
The IS controls 80 per cent of Anbar, Iraq’s largest province, and has tried to advance toward Baghdad, but several counter-attacks by security forces and Shiite militias have pushed it back.
A report by the UN Information Centre in Tehran said the IS has committed genocide. The group had killed more than 11,600 civilians and had wounded some 22,000 people in Iraq as of October, 2014. At least 165 executions have been carried out in IS-occupied areas.
