The ISIS hung two boys from a pole by their wrists on Monday after accusing them of eating during the fasting season of Ramadan, according to Syrian Observatory of Human Rights.
A placard was attached to them saying, “They broke the fast with no religious justification.”
“Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that Isis suspended from a crossbar two boys aged under 18 near the headquarters of the Hissba [jihadi police]”, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told the AFP.
“The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening,” he said.
“Apparently, they were caught eating.”
Ramadan is the ninth month, according to the Islamic calendar. Believers abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn until sunset throughout Ramadan, which began on Thursday.
“The victims remained hanged in the public square until Monday evening. Nobody was allowed to approach their corpses.” an eyewitness told the ARA news.
