The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said on Wednesday that the Islamic State group, also known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (Isis) or the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil), have beheaded five youngsters on charges of "spying for Syria's New Army and the Crusade forces. [sic]" This is the latest in a string of brutalities by Daesh, as Isis is called locally, in its strongholds in Iraq and Syria. 

The SOHR, on its verified Facebook page, identified the five executed youths as Asim Hammam al-Debs, Harith Ahmad Jalid, Muhannad Ahmad al-Mshawwah, Abdul Rahman Ahmad al-Ashaab and Mohannad Obaid Al-Hussein. Apparently, their arrival at the al-Bokomal desert area had rang alarm bells within Daesh, which believes spies are being sent to the region in Syria in the guise of displaced people. 

The monitoring group said a video had surfaced of the execution, in which the leader of the Isis executioners is apparently heard saying: "We tell you O Crusaders –that– we are coming inevitably God willing, and As for you, agents of the Crusaders and eyes of apostates, O you who are sitting –among– Muslims, we say to you that our bayonets are hungry for your blood -so- we will not leave an eye spying on Muslims without gouging it out , nor a head for one of your spies without tearing it out; –as a– victory for the religion of ALLAH and defending it [sic]." 

The SOHR said the young men, in "orange dress," are seen being beheaded in the video and then some of their heads put up on metal pegs. The monitoring group said: "The video also showed the full embodiment of the arresting process, where the five executed young men, acted the process of arrest by the organization and the communicating operations between each other, and how they delivered the information and how did they get it."

This could mean the video also showed the five executed men apparently enacting how they gathered information and delivered it to their handlers.
