ERBIL – Militant fighters of the Islamic State (ISIS) on Thursday executed two young men in the city of Manbij in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo on charges of spying to the US-led coalition, local sources reported.
Local activists confirmed that ISIS executed two young men in Manbij on charges of spying for the anti-ISIS US-led coalition forces.
Over the past few weeks, the pace of ISIS-led executions against civilians has increased dramatically in the city of Manbij for various reasons.
The victims were arrested by ISIS-led Hisba police earlier this week. They were then referred to the Sharia Court which convicted them of spying for the US-led coalition forces and ordered their execution, according to locals.
In the meantime, speaking to ARA News in Raqqa, media activist Salim Raqqawi said that ISIS arrested a young girl in Raqqa city on charges of violating the Islamic dress code.
“ISIS terrorists has put the girl in an iron cage with dozens of human skulls, roaming her in Raqqa’s neighborhoods,” the local source reported reported.
According to activists, the girl collapsed and fainted after hours of the punishment for fear of the scene.
Speaking to ARA News in Qamishli, journalist Ahmed Saad said that the hardline group carries out multiple kinds of punishments in a bid to terrorize people and impose its hegemony on civilians, especially after losing much of its power under airstrikes and ground attacks across Syria and Iraq.
“In Raqqa, ISIS has been under remarkable pressure, especially with the western-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) making remarkable gains in northern Syria, coinciding with continued US and Russian airstrikes on the terror group’s positions,” Saad said.
Over the past two years, ISIS has publicly executed hundreds of civilians, activists, and journalists on various charges in areas under its control across Syria and Iraq.
