Jarablus, Syria – On Monday, militant fighters of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) executed four fighters from the Kurdish joint forces (the defending forces of Kobane), in the city of Jarablus in the province of Aleppo, north Syria, local sources reported on Tuesday.

The radical group captured the four fighters during battles in the Kobane countryside, according to sources in Jarablus reported.

Speaking to ARA News, Anwar Abdullah, a civil rights activist in Jarablus, said that the IS extremists shot four prisoners dead of the Kurdish joint forces, who were arrested during battles in Kobane’s countryside.

“The execution took place in the city’s public square after torturing the victims in front of a group of people,” the source reported. 

Abdullah pointed out that, after executing them, the group dragged the victims in the streets after tying their corpses behind cars.

In the meantime, media activist Hossam Mawas stated to ARA News that the city of Jarablus witnesses a mass displacement of civilians for the second consecutive day, after the first wave of displacement on Monday. 

“The mass displacement of residents was caused by the increasing brutality of the IS terrorists,” the source added.

Over the past two days, the U.S.-led international coalition’s warplanes launched several sorties over the city of Jarablus without warning of any strikes.
