Endless savagery from Allah’s Seventh-Century Brigade.
BEIRUT (Reuters) – Islamic State beheaded seven men and three women in a northern Kurdish area of Syria, a human rights monitoring group said on Wednesday, part of what it described as a campaign to frighten residents resisting the militant group’s advance.
The head of the Syrian Observatory for Human, Rights Rami Abdulrahman, said five anti-Islamic State Kurdish fighters, including three women, and four Syrian Arab rebels were detained and beheaded on Tuesday 14 km (8 miles) west of Kobani, a Kurdish town besieged by Islamic State near the Turkish border.
He said a Kurdish male civilian was also beheaded.
“I don’t know why they were arrested or beheaded. Only the Islamic State knows why. They want to scare people,” he said.
Reuters could not independently verify the information.
Islamic State fighters have carried out several beheadings of enemy fighters and civilians in Syria and Iraq.
The beheadings are often carried out in public and with a message that any violent or non-violent dissent with not be tolerated.
(Inquisitr) – For many Kurds in Syria the U.S.-led air strikes against ISIS positions invading them couldn’t come soon enough as the radical Islamists slowly creep north, toward the Turkish border.
Kurdish sources in the town as well as a monitoring group said on Wednesday that nine Kurdish fighters who were captured were all beheaded including three women, whose heads were placed on concrete blocks in the ISIS-held city of Jarablous.
The Associated Press released the pictures of the three women’s heads on the concrete block but as yet the images have not been verified, even though it’s pretty obvious who the heads belong to.
