In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, ISIS militants document dead Syrian Arab Army soldiers after a battle near the T4 Airport by Palmyra and Homs, Syria.
HEAVYThe region around the T4 Airbase has been the site of ongoing battles between ISIS and the Syrian Arab Army, aided by Russia. The T4 Airport is a major center for fighting jihadists in Syria and provides the Syrian Air Force with a location to provide air support. There are airbases scattered throughout Syria, some of which have fallen into rebel hands. However, according to Syria Live, despite the attacks, T4 still remains under government control.
The Islamic State (ISIS) burned four civilians to death on Tuesday, shocking the inhabitants of Deir ez-Zor city. The men had been charged with supporting the Kurdish atheists, apostasy and treason.
ARANews“ISIS jihadists burned them to death in public on Tuesday evening,” reported Ahmed Ramadan, a spokesman for Deir ez-Zor is Being Slaughtered Silently (DBSS). “The Sharia Court called for the most brutal punishment for those four men.”
The Sharia Court of Deir ez-Zor said in a statement that after “interrogations” the suspects “confessed” to supporting and cooperating with the YPG. The court determined that their actions represented the men’s conscious abandonment of Islam, so they were convicted of apostasy as well as treason.
An eyewitness told ARA News that “hundreds of people witnessed the execution, including the victims’ families who were forced to watch their sons being burned to death.” The jihadists reportedly dumped their victims’ charred bodies into the Euphrates River.
