Muslims in Syria took two women and beheaded both of them after accusing them of witchcraft. According to one report:
Islamic State militants have beheaded two civilian women in Syria for the first time, a monitor says, adding that the victims were accused of sorcery and witchcraft and were executed along with their husbands.
“ISIS executed two women by beheading them in Deir Ezzor [Deir al-Zor] province [in eastern Syria], and this is the first time the Observatory has documented women being killed by the group in this manner,” Rami Abdulrahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The beheadings took place on Monday and Sunday. One woman was murdered in the provincial capital with her husband. The other woman was also killed with her husband in al-Mayadeen (Mayadin) city.
According to the monitor, all of the victims were accused of “witchcraft and sorcery.”
In recent days Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) militants have also strung up eight men, including two minors, alive on crucifixes for reportedly failing to fast during Ramadan, a Muslim religious period.
