The ISIL Takfiri terrorists have executed nearly 1,500 people in Syria in five months, as they continue committing crimes against humanity on a large scale in the country, says a UK-based group.

Rami Abdel Rahman, the director of the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said on Monday that the agency has documented the execution of 1,429 people since June.

He further noted that the majority of ISIL’s victims in Syria have been civilians.

“Of the total number of people beheaded or shot dead in mass killings by ISIL, 879 have been civilians, some 700 of them members of the Shaitat tribe,” Abdel Rahman said.

He added that four ISIL militants, 43 members of the rival militant groups, including the al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Nusra Front, and 483 Syrian army soldiers were also among those massacred.

On November 14, the UN Commission of Inquiry on Syria stated that the ISIL commanders have “willfully” been perpetrated in war crimes and crimes against humanity with “clear intent of attacking persons with awareness of their civilian or ‘hors de combat’ (non-combat) status.”

“They are individually criminally responsible for these crimes,” it stated, calling for the perpetrators to be brought to justice, for instance before the International Criminal Court.

The ISIL terrorists currently control large swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq. They have committed savagery in both countries, including mass executions and beheading of local residents as well as foreign nationals.
