Dr. Rou’aa Diab was a dentist in the Deir ez-Zor Governate city of Al-Mayadeen, located on the border of Iraq.  Two days ago, she arrested by the Islamic State, along with 4 others, and summarily executed. The reasoning for the execution was under the crime of “treating male patients” – a crime she was not tried for in a court room. Dr. Diab’s death has sparked anger in the historical city of Al-Mayadeen, an area where the Islamic State continues to assert its governance over.

Dr. Diab is one of the many civilians executed by the Islamic State over the last 7 days. Syrian Government sources claim 700 civilians from a tribe in Deir ez-Zor were executed last week. Violence between tribal factions in Deir ez-Zor and the Islamic State has escalated over the last two weeks, despite good relations prior to their armed conflict.

  1. […] Dr Diab est l’un des nombreux civils exécutés par l’État islamique au cours des 7 derniers jours. Des sources gouvernementales syriennes affirment que 700 civils d’une tribu à Deir ez-Zor ont été exécutés la semaine dernière. La violence entre factions tribales à Deir ez-Zor et l’État islamique a augmenté au cours des deux dernières semaines, malgré les bonnes relations avant leur conflit armé. http://www.almasdarnews.com/article/islamic-state-executes-female-dentist-treating-men/ […]

  2. What an ignorant comment, Steve Kamin, quite apart from not knowing the difference between “there” and “they’re”. I am sure that the majority of Muslims are as appalled by this barbaric act as the rest if us are. If only more of them were brave enough to stick their heads above the parapet and say so.

  3. There are few groups of khuwarij (outsiders) killers who had entered in the ranks of IS, they were doing these killings to malign IS, IS has isolated them, fought with them and killed in revenge who did such acts as an Islamic punishment of QASAS (killing in response of killing).

    May all innocents Muslims rest in peace.
