MANBIJ – A Syrian young man killed a judge from the radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) along with two of his escorts in the city of Manbij in Aleppo province, north Syria, local sources reported on Wednesday.
After killing the ISIS judge in Manbij, the man has committed suicide by shooting himself.
“The young man has shot dead a Tunisian national, who served as a judge at the ISIS-linked Sharia Court in Manbij,” an eyewitness told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.
The incident took place on Tuesday, after the Sharia Court beheaded several family members of the Syrian young man.
“The same judge had order the beheading of at least three family members of the man, including his brother,” the source reported.
“He took revenge and killed himself afterwards to avoid falling in the hands of Daesh (ISIS).”
In the meantime, dozens of people took to the street in Manbij to protest against ISIS atrocities. However, the group opened fire on the protesters, killing at least two and wounding several others. The rest of the protesters were arrested, activists told ARA News in Manbij.
This is the third protest organized by the people of Manbij in two months, calling for the departure of the terror group from their city and denouncing its violations against civilians.
The terror group has captured the city of Manbij more than a year and a half ago, after battles with the Syrian opposition forces.
