Islamic State executes deserter

Damascus, Jan 13 (IANS/AKI) The Islamic State has executed one of its fighters who deserted from the group in eastern Syria, a monitoring group has reported.

IS members brought the alleged deserter’s bullet-ridden corpse to his home in Zabian in Deir Ezzor province, the Britain-based Syrian Human Rights Observatory reported.

The unnamed man’s body had a note attached to it accusing him of “fighting IS and burning its vehicles”, the monitor said.

IS detained the man 10 days ago after he deserted the militant group five months earlier, the monitor cited activists as saying.

In neighbouring Iraq, IS executed 80 people including policemen and soldiers near the northern city of Mosul, local broadcaster Alsumaria TV reported on Monday, citing unnamed local sources.

The victims were accused of spying and of collaborating with the Iraqi authorities and were shot dead, the broadcaster quoted the sources as saying.

IS overran Mosul in June 2014 and has made the city its capital in Iraq.
