Islamic State Beheaded Own Militants for Abandoning the Battlefront

The Islamic State (Daesh) has beheaded 10 of its own militants in public for abandoning their posts during a battle.

A Sharia court is said to have found the militants guilty of "high treason" after they had run away from their post at the battlefront in the north western Iraq city of Mosul.

The troops abandoned the battlefront amid clashes between ISIS and Kurdish Peshmerga forces, Press Telegraph reported, referring to Syrian ARA News.

Media activist Abdullah al-Mallah told the news agency that "the Sharia Court of Mosul decided to behead them in front of hundreds of ISIS members in order to prevent others from taking such a move without the permission of their military leadership."
