DEIR EZZOR Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed five young men in Syria’s eastern Deir ez-Zor Governorate on Sunday, after accusing them of ‘spying for enemies’, activists and eyewitnesses reported. 

The ISIS-linked Hisba Police raided the town of al-Tarif west of Deir ez-Zor and arrested five men on suspicion of spying for rival groups.

The Sharia Court ordered the execution of the five civilians on charges of treason against the ISIS self-declared Caliphate.

“They were accused of spying on behalf of the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces,” media activist Issam al-Hamid told ARA News in Deir ez-Zor.

ISIS militants beheaded the men a public square in al-Tarif town.

“The militants forced dozens of people to witness the brutal execution on Sunday evening,” an eyewitness told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.
