Damascus – Islamic State (ISIS) extremists executed a Palestinian girl on Wednesday, after they accused her of supporting the Syrian government and leaking information to the Intelligence Directorate.
Hadil Yassin Abu al-Madi, a resident of the Yarmouk District in Damascus, was arrested by the ISIS-led Hisba Police, who suspected that she had been cooperating with the Syria’s Mukhabarat.
After a brief hearing, the Sharia Court in Yarmouk convicted Hadil on charges of spying and treason, ordering her immediate execution.
“ISIS militants publicly executed Hadil in Yarmouk,” reported Wissam Doghmoush, a local media activist. “Dozens of people witnessed the brutal execution.”
ISIS has been in control of a residential block in southern Damascus since April 2015, when it drove out al-Qaeda-splinter group Jabhat Fateh al-Sham and allied rebel factions.
Al-Hajar al-Aswad is believed to be the Islamic State’s primary staging area. The extremist group also controls most of the nearby Yarmouk and Tadamun Districts.
In October, the Islamic State threatened to invade Damascus and apply its puritanical interpretation of Sharia law throughout the capital. ISIS said that their invasion was imminent and vowed to strike at Syrian security forces and the armed opposition.
