ISIS Fighter Kills Mother In Public For Apostasy

The 20-year-old Ali Saqr accused his mother of apostasy as she wanted her son to leave the ISIS and escape from the militant organization believing the coalition will kill all the activists.

The mother, named Lena al-Qasem, was in her 40s if believed to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently. However, activists say she was 35-year-old.

The two observatory groups closely monitor the situation in Syria through their contacts in the country.

This is not the first time the ISIS fighters have killed their parents on the orders of their leaders. In 2015 a Lebanese father was detained and killed when he travled to Raqqa in an effort to bring back his son who has joined the extremist group.

Similarly, more killings had taken place in the ISIS controlled areas in Syria. In 2014 a woman was stoned to death. The group charged her with adultery.

A Jordanian pilot was put inside a metal cage last year and was set on fire at a public square in Raqqa.

Meanwhile, at least eighteen IS fighters have been killed in clashes between the militants and joint Turkish-Iraqi force in Iraq near a training camp outside the Mosul city.

According to Turkish President Erdogan the ISIS fighters tried infiltrating Bashiqa.
