ISIS in Syria Hangs Two Boys for Eating During Ramadan

ISIS in Syria Hangs Two BoysISIS in Syria Hangs Two BoysThe Islamic State (ISIS) on Monday hanged two youths after accusing them of eating during daylight hours in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said.
 
"Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that IS hanged from a crossbar two boys aged under 18 near the HQ of the Hissba", the jihadist police, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told the AFP news agency.
 
"The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening," he added.
 
"Apparently, they were caught eating," Abdel Rahman continued.
 
A placard was attached to the bodies reading "They broke the fast with no religious justification".
 
Throughout the month of Ramadan, which began on Thursday, believers abstain from eating and drinking from dawn until sunset.
 
ISIS, which controls swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq where it has created a self-proclaimed "caliphate", advocates an extreme view of the application of Islamic law, or sharia.
 
Steps taken by ISIS against violations of Islamic include a ban on mannequins in shop displays as well as a ban on singing and dancing at weddings.
 
The jihadists do not hesitate to impose brutal punishments including beheadings, stonings, floggings and crucifixions.
