In the ISIS controlled Syria and Iraq, life is very dangerous. ISIS has controlled the region for some time now, and their hold is only getting tighter. Things have become so difficult that even watching a soccer game can be very dangerous.
According to the IBTimes UK an underground anti-ISIS group operating in Syria called “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” recently released a story that said ISIS fighters had recently rounded up 13 teenage boys in the city of Mosul in Iraq. The 13 boys were caught watching an Asia Cup soccer game between the nations of Iraq and Jordan – which is apparently a crime in the Islamic State. The ISIS thugs said that the children were guilty of breaking Islamic principles and violating Sharia law before publicly executing the children with machine guns. To make matters worse (as if that were possible), the parents of the children were not allowed to collect their bodies because ISIS enjoys leaving gruesome reminders of what happens when you don’t obey them perfectly.
In an effort to verify the story the IBTimes UK was able to contact “Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently” who confirmed the ghastly story.
“The bodies remained lying in the open and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by terrorist organisation,” the underground resistance group wrote on their website.
The same activist group has been surreptitiously documenting the atrocities that ISIS has been committing in the region.
No doubt they’ve had a lot of work to do win recent months, as the ISIS atrocities continue to pile up.
