Beirut Daesh militants hanged two youths on Monday after accusing them of eating during daylight hours in the fasting month of Ramazan, the Syrian Observatory of Human Rights said.
Residents of the village of Mayadeen in Deir Ezzor province reported that Daesh hanged from a crossbar two boys aged under 18 near the HQ of the Hissba, Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman told AFP.
The children have been suspended by ropes from a pole since noon, and they were still there in the late evening, he said.
Apparently, they were caught eating.
A placard was attached to the bodies reading They broke the fast with no religious justification.
Throughout the month of Ramazan, which began on Thursday, believers abstain from eating, drinking, smoking and having sex from dawn until sunset.
Daesh militants do not hesitate to impose brutal punishments including beheadings, stonings, floggings and crucifixions.
