The Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) has executed another civilian in Iraq; this time for the alleged crime of speaking out against the destruction of religious shrines inside the country. The victim of this heinous crime was the Iraqi human rights activist and lawyer, Samira Al-Saleh Al-No’aimi. On September 17th in the city of Mosul, Samira was apprehended by ISIS militants after members of the terrorist organization claimed to have proof that she was criticising the group.

Samira was tried in the ISIS “Shariah Court” for the crime of “apostasy”; which, she was later found guilty of by an ISIS jury. The alleged evidence shared by the prosecution were photos of Samira’s Facebook posts one week prior to her arrest. She was tortured for 5 days by her captors before being summarily executed on September 22nd. Samira’s Facebook was removed the following day, as she became the third women in the course of a month to be executed by ISIS.
