ALEPPO – Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed Saturday a teenage boy in Syria’s northern Aleppo province after accusing him of ‘apostasy’, local activists and eyewitnesses reported.
The 16-year-old victim was arrested in the ISIS-held city of Jarablus north of Aleppo for missing Friday prayers at the mosque.
“The teenage boy, who faced charges of apostasy, was beheaded in front of a huge crowd in central Jarablus on Saturday,” local media activist Nasser Taljbini told ARA News.
The victim was accused by the Sharia Court of violating the Islamic law, and ordered his execution in public on charges of apostasy, the source reported.
“Before carrying out the execution, a Sharia official read a statement issued by the ISIS Sharia Court, vowing everyone who misses prayers at the mosque to face a similar punishment,” an eyewitness told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.
