The Islamic State has slaughtered some 2,000 people since it ascended to power six months ago with the establishment of an Islamic caliphate in Syria and Iraq.
Islamic State (IS or ISIS) declared itself a caliphate in June and has since expanded its rule over larger swaths of territory in Syria and Iraq. The notorious terror organization has also amplified its influence in Lebanon, Gaza, Egypt and other Middle Eastern countries.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) has been closely documenting the atrocities committed by ISIS in past months and detailed the deaths that ISIS has inflicted on the population under its rule.
At least 1,175 civilians, including four children and eight women, were executed by beheading, shooting or stoning in the provinces of Deir Ezzor, its capital city al- Raqqa, al- Hasakah, Aleppo, Homs and Hama. The majority of victims – 930 – are from the al-Sheitaat tribe in the eastern countryside of Deir Ezzor.
ISIS Kills its Own
A recent Al-Jazeera report states that that another mass grave containing an additional 230 victims from the al-Sheitaat tribe was discovered in Syria.
ISIS is killing rival Sunni terrorists, even though all these organizations are seemingly fighting for the same objective: Islamization of the world. ISIS executed 81 fighters of the Nusra Front as well as other rebel and Islamic battalions after arresting them during clashes.
ISIS also executed 120 of its own members for “exceeding the limits in religion,” SOHR reports. Most of them were executed after being arrested during an attempt to return to their countries of origin, having had a change of heart.
Syrian President Assad’s regime lost 502 officers and soldiers who were captured and executed by ISIS.
SOHR estimates that the true number of people killed by ISIS is higher than that which they had documented.
“We in SOHR believe that the real number of people that had been killed by IS is higher than the number documented by SOHR because there are hundreds of missing and detainees inside the IS jails, loss of communication with about a thousand men of [the] al- Shaitaat tribe as well as…dozens of Kurds who have still been missing since the beginning of [the] IS attack…in September 16,” SOHR states.
Beyond the mass executions, ISIS is notorious for forced conversations, pillage and rape.
