ERBIL – Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed two teenage girls in Mosul city in the northwestern Iraqi province of Nineveh for “mocking the Caliphate” through social media, local sources reported on Wednesday.
According to a statement by the Sharia Court in Mosul, the two girls have mocked the ISIS self-declared Caliphate through their accounts on Twitter and Facebook.
After two days of arrest, both teenage girls were hanged to death.
“The execution took place in front of dozens of people in the Toub square in Mosul,” local media activist Abdullah al-Mallah told ARA News.
“The shocking incident has angered the residents of the city. But once a decision is issued by the Sharia Court, nobody dares to protest against it because of the sever punishment in such cases,” al-Mallah said.
The dead bodies of the two victims remained hanged in the square until Wednesday midnight.
ISIS militants have reportedly prevented the families of the victims from taking the bodies, saying that those will be buried in a confidential location.
The Sharia Court described the two teenage girls as ‘infidels’, stressing they cannot be buried in the Muslim graveyard of Mosul.
