ISIS executed over 4,000 in Syria in last two years

The Islamic State militant group has executed over 4,000 people within two years, UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said, calling on the UN to stop the crimes and violations committed against the Syrian people by the outfit.

Monitors compiled the list dating back to the declaration of ISIS in June 2014, showing regular beheadings, shootings, stonings and other methods of murder such as throwing people off buildings and setting them on fire.

The so-called offences of those executed included sodomy, apostasy and alcohol smuggling, SOHR notes.

It concludes that by the end of the 22nd month of the so-called “caliphate” under ISIS, 4,144 people had been executed.

SOHR said civilians made up the bulk of those executed, estimated at 2,230 people, including in three large-scale massacres of Sunni and Kurdish citizens.
