Islamic States Punishes Boys for Eating During Ramadan

Yes, they are still terrorizing people.

Beirut (AFP) – The Islamic State group on Monday made two youths hang from a beam by their wrists after accusing them of eating during daylight hours in the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said.

“Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that IS suspended from a crossbar two boys aged under 18 near the HQ of the Hissba”, the jihadist police, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.

“The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening,” he said.

    Is there any Muslim country without human rights violations?

    Zero. Was audited by Department of Labor once for teenage Labor regulatory compliance for 3 days. Was told I was doing a good job complying with Federal Labor Laws.

    Thanks for asking.
