Amputation and crucifixion | ISIS carries out Hirabah sentence against five persons in Deir Ezzor

Deir Ezzor province: SOHR activists have reported that ISIS cells have applied Hirabah (Islamic sharea death penalty) against five people, who were arrested on Al-Khurafi road between Al-Hasakah and Deir Ezzor cities, where they were accused of “blocking roads and terrorizing civilians”.

According to extremist organizations, Hirabah sentence is usually implemented against criminals by cutting their hands and legs and crucifying them to death.

On December 11, SOHR activists reported that areas under the control of Syria Democratic Forces (SDF) experienced, in November 2021, scores of incidents of security disorder and violations against human rights.

In November 2021, ISIS continued its attacks in areas under the control of SDF and the Autonomous Administration in north and north-east Syria region, as ISIS cells carried out several attacks and attempted assassinations using various methods, including shooting, using sharp tools and planting IEDs and landmines throughout SDF-held areas. On the other hand, SDF launched periodical security campaigns, with Coalition support, targeting ISIS cells and individuals accused of “dealing with these cells”. However, such campaigns remained timid and ineffective and could not put an end to ISIS escalating operations in the region.

SOHR activists documented over 29 attacks in November carried out by ISIS cells in SDF-held areas in Deir Ezzor, Al-Hasakah, Aleppo and Al-Raqqah, including armed attacks and explosions. According to SOHR statistics, the number of people killed in these attacks during September reached eight. The breakdown of fatalities is as follows: 15 civilians, including two women and two little girls, and seven members of SDF-backed military formations.
