Damascus, Syria – Extremists of the Islamic State (IS/ISIS) executed two Syrian boys in the city of Mayadeen, after accusing them of eating during daylight hours in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, local sources said.
“IS terrorists hanged the two boys in a square in central Mayadeen for eating during Ramadan,” an eyewitness told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.
Both victims were under 18. The accusation was directed to them by the jihdaid police of Hissba in Mayadeen city of Deir ez-Zor province, east Syria.
“The victims remained hanged in the public square until Monday evening. Nobody was allowed to approach their corpses,” the source said, adding that IS militants try to terrorize people and impose strict regulations, vowing those who violate the group’s instructions to be brutally punished.
The radical group attached a placard on the victims’ bodies, saying: “They broke the fast with no religious justification.”
