ISIL beheads two women for the first time in Syria

Damascus, Syria (BBN)-The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) has beheaded two women for the first time, in eastern Syria’s Deir Ezzor province, a monitoring group said.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Tuesday that ISIL beheaded the two women and their two husbands after accusing them of using “magic for medicine”, reports Al Jazeera.

It is not known what non-traditional health remedy the two couples had sought.

“It is the first time that the beheading of women, by the use of sword in public, has taken place in Syria,” the Observatory’s chief, Rami Abdel Rahman, told Al Jazeera.

The beheadings took place in the city of Deir Ezzor and the city of Mayadin. ISIL beheaded the first couple on Sunday and the second couple on Monday.

ISIL reportedly covered up both women and beheaded them, with many people watching, the Observatory said.
