MANBIJ – Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed on Monday three men from one family in Manbij city in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo, after accusing them of insulting the group’s self-declared Caliphate.
The three brothers Ibrahim, Adnan and Jasser al-Mree were arrested by ISIS militants earlier on Sunday after being involved in a fight with officials of the ISIS-linked al-Hisba (taxation) department.
“The three brothers used to run a grocery store in Manbij. When members of al-Hisba department demanded them to pay the regular taxes, the three brothers opposed the taxation policy of ISIS arguing they were unable to pay anymore taxes to the group. Then a fight broke out between them and the al-Hisba officials, leading to the arrest of the three brothers. They were referred to the Sharia Court of Manbij,” local media activist Nasser Taljbini told ARA News.
After reviewing their case, the Sharia Court convicted the three men of insulting the Caliphate by opposing ISIS regulations and attacking its officials.
“The three brothers were beheaded on Monday at the Dadat square in Manbij suburb in front of dozens of people,” the source reported.
Noteworthy, collecting taxes from residents is considered one of the main financial resources for the ISIS radical group.
