Islamists executed seven men, tow of them by crucifixion, in northeastern Syria.
The Jamaica Observer reported:

The jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) announced it had executed seven prisoners in its bastion in north-eastern Syria yesterday, two of them by crucifixion.

ISIL, which has been disavowed even by al-Qaeda, said it held the seven responsible for a grenade attack on one of its fighters earlier this month in the Euphrates Valley city of Raqa, which it rules with an iron fist.

“Ten days ago, attackers on a motorbike threw a grenade at an ISIL fighter at the Naim roundabout. A Muslim civilian had his leg blown off and a child was killed,” the group said on Twitter.

“Our fighters immediately set up a roadblock and succeeded in capturing them. They were then able to detain other members of the cell.”

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights posted a photograph of the two prisoners being crucified at the roundabout with passers-by apparently unfazed.

One of them blindfolded, and with his head spattered with blood, had a banner wrapped round his body proclaiming: “This man fought against Muslims and threw a grenade in this place.”
