Al-Nusra front- a branch of Al-Qaeda in Syria implemented a death sentence of a woman in a public square in Ma’rra Masreen (Rural Idlib), under charges of prostitution, according to a verbal statement by a member of the organisation, before another member shot her in the head. In what he called it ‘A limit of the limits of God’.
The execution took place in front of a large wall written on it ‘Al-Qaeda organization in the Levant: Al-Nusra Front’, placed on the main junction in the town.
ISIS frequently carry out public executions in the public squares of areas under their control. Al nusra carry out similar executions, but to a lesser extent.
None of the organisations carry out any executions of men under charges of fornication, where the penalty is limited to only women.
