The Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) publicly beheaded three of its own members in Syria by sword, a monitor group reported.
Two of them were beheaded for “banditry,” while the third was decapitated for “killing a man and throwing him in [a] well in order to steal his money,” added the monitor group.
The executions took place in the Syrian town of Khasham, located in the eastern countryside of the city of Deir Ezzor, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a group that monitors the Syrian conflict using a network of sources on the ground, reported Friday.
On Sunday, SOHR reported that ISIS beheaded a “leading figure” of the Syrian al-Qaeda affiliate known as al-Nusra Front. The man was reportedly decapitated with a sword in the presence of children.
