The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has reportedly beheaded two women accused of ‘sorcery’ in Syria, a rights watch group said.
Syrian Observatory for Human Rights chief Rami Abdel Rahman said that the terror outfit beheaded the women in the Deir al-Zor province and added that this was the first time the monitoring group had documented women being executed, reported Dailystar.com.lb.
The London-based monitoring group said that the killings took place on Sunday and Monday and involved two couples. Both the women were executed along with their husbands as the terror group accused each pair of ‘witchcraft and sorcery’.
The terror group has often stoned women to death on allegations of adultery but this incident is the first of its kind.
