13 fans executed by ISIS for watching football

ISIS added yet another atrocity to its resume of extensive violence after it was reported that the terrorist organization’s militants publicly executed 13 teenagers who were watching the Asian Cup match between Iraq and Jordan.

According to the Daily Mail, the 13 boys were watching the game in the city of Mosul, which is now an ISIS-controlled territory. Militants from the terrorist group spotted these individuals before rounding them up to stop them from doing so.

They were then accused of breaking religious laws that disallowed them from watching football, and their crimes were explicitly read out using a loudspeaker, before they proceeded to execute them in public, through a firing squad that was equipped with machine guns.

The incident was mainly reported by an anti-ISIS activist group, Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently. With ISIS’ increasing amount of brutal conducts in Iraq, this group is extensively documenting and reporting the violence that takes place over there, including this execution.

“The bodies remained lying in the open and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by terrorist organisation,” the group reported on their website.

Iraq secured victory in that game, courtesy of Yaser Kasim’s solitary strike in Brisbane.
