ISIS jihadists publicly executed 13 teenage boys for watching a soccer match.
The young fans were watching an Asian Cup match between Iraq and Jordan on TV last week when they were caught by the militants in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which the Islamic State controls, the Daily Mail reported.
Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, an activist group that exposes ISIS atrocities, reported that the teens were executed by a firing squad.
“The bodies remained lying in the open and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by terrorist organisation,” the group posted on its website.
The boys were slaughtered because they were said to be violating Sharia laws by watching the game.
A few days earlier, the Islamic State released a gruesome video showing two men being flung off a tower in Mosul after a masked fighter announced that they had been found guilty of engaging in homosexual activities.
Iraq beat Jordan 1-0 in the Jan. 12 match, which took place in Brisbane, Australia.
