ERBIL – Radical group of the Islamic State (ISIS) on Sunday released new propaganda footages, showing the execution of four young men on charge of ‘spying for enemies’ in Syria’s eastern city of Raqqa.
Local activists confirmed that ISIS executed four young men in Raqqa on charges of spying for the ‘crusader coalition’, in reference to the US-led coalition that has been bombing the group in Syria and Iraq for more than one year and a half.
The ISIS-linked Raqqa media center released a propaganda version under the banner “Shear the Necks”, showing pictures of four young men dressed in orange being beheaded by a masked militant from the extremist group.
Subtitles in Arabic were shown on the screen, saying “they [victims] took part in filming the Islamic State’s headquarters in the city of Raqqa” –the group’s main bastion in Syria.
The victims have been described by the group as “apostates and spies for the crusaders”.
“They have caused the death of hundreds of ‘Muslims’ through taking pictures and leaking coordinates of the group’s headquarters to the enemies of the Caliphate,” ISIS said.
The victims were identified as Hamoud Hussein al-Hamoud, Ali Ahmed Mardoud, Ali Abdul Ali, and Juma Mustafa al-Khalaf, according to the ISIS-linked media center of Raqqa.
The execution seems to be taken in a place that was destroyed by the US-led coalition’s airstrikes.
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.
