According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an ISIS fighter
publicly executed his mother in Raqqa, Syria, because she encouraged him
to leave the group. The woman said to be in her 40s, obviously worried
for her son's safety warned him to leave because she feared that the US-backed coalition
was going to wipe out the terror group. Not only did her son not heed
her advice, he reported her to the group.
Citing local sources, the
Observatory said the 20-year-old man executed his mother on Wednesday
near the post office building where she worked in front of hundreds of
people in Raqqa, a main base of operations for the group in Syria.
