The Islamic extremist group Islamic state (IS) has publicly beheaded two women who were accused of witchcraft, according the exile group SOHR.
The two women were according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) beheaded in the Deir Ezzor province on Sunday and Monday.
- It is the first time SOHR has documented that women are killed in this way in Syria, said Rami Abdul Rahman, head of the London-based group.
The two women were beheaded along with their husbands. Both pairs were accused of "witchcraft and sorcery."
IS is notorious for performing cruel liquidations and has on several occasions stoned to death women who have been accused of infidelity.
According SOHR IS has executed over 3000 people in Syria since the extremist group declared the caliphate in Syria and Iraq in June last year.
Approximately 1,800 of these were civilians, including 74 children.
