A female Syrian politician was killed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Al-Sham (ISIS) in the province of Ar-Raqqa after being kidnapped several months ago by members of the organization. Sa’ada Al-Ahmad was one of the leaders of “Al-Harakat Al-Sha’abiyya Al Qawimiyyeh Al-Massaanda” – a political group dedicated to unifying the Syrian people and ending the violence in the country. She was expelled from the country of Oman in 2012 after her attack on a Jordanian parliament member attempting to tear down the Syrian flag at the Syrian Embassy.

ISIS charged Al-Ahmad with the crime of “espionage” during her trial at the Shariah Courts of Raqqa City. She was found guilty of this alleged crime after the jury concluded that her outspoken support of the Syrian Government was sufficient evidence of her dealings with the latter. For months her whereabouts were unknown, leaving many to presume she was dead; however, it was confirmed when ISIS media outlets publicized her death.
