QAMISHLI – The radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) on Tuesday executed a teenage boy in Mosul city of Iraq’s northwestern Nineveh province.

The 15-year-old boy was arrested by ISIS militants in central Mosul for listening to “western music”, according to local sources. 

“Ayham Hussein was captured by the jihadis while listening to Pop music at the grocery store of his father in the Nabi Younis marketplace in western Mosul. He was referred to the Sharia Court, which issued a decision to execute him,” a spokesman for the Nineveh media center told ARA News.

“ISIS jihadis publicly beheaded the boy,” the source said, speaking on condition of anonymity. 

The victim’s body was reportedly handed over to his family on Tuesday evening. The incident has raised public outrage among Mosul’s residents. 

“There was no formal decision by the Sharia Court that ban listening to western music,” the source said, adding this was the first case of its kind to be documented in Mosul.

    None of this would be happening if Islam did not exist… It is Islam which has given birth to such barbarism… not the man with the sword of the judge giving power to its draconian 6th Century laws.

    Islam is a modern day scourge on the face of the Earth, seeking to drag us all, at the point of a gun, back to an age of ignorance.

      That doesn’t have anything to do with athiesm dummy, those deaths are due to their political philosophy. Genghis Khan killed over 40 million which was over 10% of the world’s population at the time.

    Ayham was a regular kid, just innocently listening to some music. My sorrowful condolences to his family.
    I can hardly wait until ISIL is completely wiped out!
