Islamic State executes three former fighters: Monitor

Damascus: The Islamic State group shot dead three of its former fighters in eastern Syria and dumped their bodies in the desert, refusing to allow their families to bury them, a monitor said.

The executions took place near the village al-Hsan in Deir Ezzor province, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The three men, who were from the same family, were arrested by the IS several months ago for failing to repent and for being members of sleeper cells working against the IS, the watchdog said.

The IS stoned two women to death for alleged adultery at a public square in Deir Ezzor in front of a crowd of people, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The monitoring group relies for on a network of activists and doctors inside Syria for its information.
