DEIR EZZOR – Militants of the Islamic State group (ISIS) has executed six people in Syria’s eastern province of Deir Ezzor on charges of “communicating with hostile parties” and attempting cope against the alleged Caliphate. 

Four young men were beheaded on Tuesday in al-Bukamal city of Deir Ezzor province under the pretext that they had leaked security information about ISIS’s military plans to rebels of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), local activists reported.

Also on Tuesday, ISIS executed two brothers, identified as Hussein and Hassan al-Khalaf, in the village of Dahla in the countryside of Deir Ezzor on charges of apostasy and dealing with the enemies of the Caliphate. 

“Both victims were shot dead in front of a large crowd in Dalha. Their bodies were then crucified and remained at the scene until Tuesday midnight,” an eyewitness told ARA News on the condition of anonymity.

This comes amid a state of alert in Deir Ezzor as the group has arrested dozens of media activists for publishing news about ISIS’s activities online. 

Speaking to ARA News, media activist Saray Addin said that ISIS imposed a curfew on several districts in Deir Ezzor and raided dozens of houses in search for activists. 

“The terror group now accuses every activist of apostasy and executes everyone who communicates with people outside the province,” he said.
