BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:45 P.M.) – Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham executed a half dozen people that were accused of being members of the Islamic State (ISIS) this week.
According to opposition activists, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham arrested these six men in rural Idlib recently and then investigated their history.
The six men were accused of being members in an Islamic State sleeper cell that was active around the Idlib countryside.
These six men were allegedly guilty of planting IEDs and assassinating Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham fighters across the Idlib province.
The six men were summarily executed via gunfire, Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham reported.
One of the men was identified by opposition activists as Fadl Al-‘Ali of Idlib.
These latest executions come just a week after Hay’at Tahrir Al-Sham launched a wide-scale security operation to crackdown on people seeking reconciliation with the Syrian government.
