Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists have publicly crucified and murdered a teenage boy whom they accused of taking photographs of the group’s headquarters in the extremists’ de facto capital Raqqa, Syria.
Disturbing images allegedly taken in Raqqa’s central square show the lifeless and bloodstained body of the unnamed teenager, nailed to a cross. A handwritten sign, hung around the boy’s neck, is accusing him of “apostasy” — the abandonment of his religion — and adds that he had been crucified for three days after being caught getting paid 500 Turkish lira for each photograph he took of an ISIS military base.
The sickening image of the murdered boy was posted on a social media account of an activist group called Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently. The group is comprised of a handful of brave men and women who oppose ISIS and, at the risk of their own lives, try to document the violence and atrocities the terrorists group has brought to their hometown. ISIS’s use of crucifixion as a punishment derives from its interpretation of Verse 33 of the fifth book of the Koran, which reads:
Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment.
Raqqa’s central square has been awash in blood since ISIS seized control of the city earlier this year. Severed heads are routinely displayed impaled on spikes in the square and a number of wooden and metal crosses are placed there, apparently in readiness for the next execution.
