Hasakah – Radical group of the Islamic State (ISIS) on Saturday executed one of its own jihadists in northeastern Syria, after accusing him of spying for the US-led coalition.

Abu Muhammad, an ISIS security official in the town of Margada in Hasakah Governorate, was publicly executed on Saturday.

“The group accused Abu Muhammad of leaking security information about the group’s movements in Margada to the US-led coalition,” a local source told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The militant, who was responsible for an ISIS security office in Margada, had tried to desert the group and escape Syria. However, he was arrested by ISIS guards before fleeing Margada town.

Abu Muhammad was charged by the ISIS-led Sharia Court of ‘high treason’.

Margada is the Islamic State’s final stronghold in Hasakah Governorate. It’s located on the administrative borders between Hasakah and Deir ez-Zor governorates.

The group has recently executed several other militants for evacuating their posts without permission in Raqqa and Mosul.
