SYRIA: TWO TEEN GIRLS STONED TO DEATH BY ISIS FOR 'ADULTERY' AS THE MEN GET 50 LASHES
February 23, 2016: Two teenage girls were stoned to death by ISIS in Syria but the two men they were with escaped with just a beating.
Hasna, 17, and Madiha, 16, died horrifically in Deir ez-Zor city, eastern Syria, after being accused of committing adultery.
Ahmed Ramadan of ARA News revealed: āThe execution took place in the Hamidiya district of Deir ez-Zor on Tuesday (February 23) afternoon, where hundreds of people gathered to witness the stoning of the two young girls.ā
The ISIS-led Sharia Court released a statement claiming the girls were seized in a house "with two strangers" which is strictly forbidden under Islamic State's own interpretation of Islam.
The victims were accused of committing adultery with two older men, identified by the Sharia Court as Abu Zubair al-Idlbi and Maher Hameed.
Al-Idlbi and Hamdeed were publicly flogged with 50 lashes each at the hands of ISIS jihadis in central Deir ez-Zor.
āThe decision of the Sharia Court raised the anger of Deir ez-Zorās residents, who considered it unfair to kill the two girls by stoning and merely flog the men and set them free,ā Ramadan said. (Sources: thesun.co.uk, 26/02/2016)
