ALEPPO – The Islamic State (ISIS) extremist group executed on Sunday four of its own militants in the northern Syrian city of Manbij, after accusing them of robbery and corruption.

“ISIS leadership in Manbij arrested four of its own members and convicted them of corruption,” local media activist Nasser Teljbini told ARA News.

“The militants were accused of stealing gold and five million Syrian Liras ($22,700) from the Islamic Bank of Manbij.”  

Subsequent to interrogations, the Sharia Court ordered the immediate execution of the suspects, according to the source.

“The four ISIS members were executed by firing squad in front of hundreds of people in central Manbij,” Teljbini reported. 

The radical group has recently started to punish its own members in public in order to show its strict commitment to prosecute anyone who violates its regulations, even if the violators are from its own jihadis.
