Islamic State’s extremists reportedly executed two young Iraqi men in public on Friday for allegedly cooperating with Iraqi security forces, witnesses said.
According to local sources, the beheadings were carried out in the crowded market of Zab in the province of Kirkuk.
In Syria, the group’s radicals carried out the similar execution of two men in the province of Deir ez-Zor, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
The monitoring group said that the two were accused of “apostasy,” and that they allegedly converted to Shiism and were members of Lebanon’s Amal Movement.
The two victims were decapitated and their bodies put on public display in the village of Hajin in the countryside of Deir ez-Zor .
Meanwhile, ISIS militants in the Aleppo town of Maskaneh burned three truckloads of cigarettes in a public square, the Observatory said. There was no information about the fate of three truck drivers who detained by the group as part of the incident.
