ISIS executes four popular Footballers in Syria

ISIS militants have executed four footballers in Syria after its religious leaders said supporting football was anti-Islamic. The victims, who played for popular team Al-Shabab, were beheaded in Raqqa after they were accused of spying for the Kurdish YPG.

In a series of tweets, Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently named the victims as Osama Abu Kuwait, Ihsan Al Shuwaikh, Nehad Al Hussen and Ahmed Ahawakh, according to Daily Mail.

ISIS banned organised sports including football when they took over Raqqa two years ago.

Last year ISIS militants executed 13 teenage boys for watching the Asian Cup football match between Iraq and Jordan last week.
