The radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) on Monday executed three of its own jihadists in northeastern Syria for escaping the battle field in Raqqa province.
The three militants were captured after evacuating their post without permission in the northern suburb of Raqqa–where heavy fighting is ongoing between ISIS militants and the Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).
“The ISIS leadership ordered the immediate execution of the three militants on charges of committing ‘high treason’,” a local media activist told ARA News, speaking on condition of anonymity.
“They were executed by firing squad in Raqqa downtown on Monday, where dozens of people gathered to witness the execution,” the source reported.
The extremist ISIS group has recently executed several other militants for evacuating their posts without permission in Raqqa and Mosul–the group’s two key strongholds in Syria and Iraq.
