The Islamic State has in just a couple of months executed at least 116 foreign fighters who wanted to quit jihad and return home, a British-based human rights monitoring group claims.
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the men killed were foreign fighters who had joined the insurgency but were caught trying to leave territory controlled by militants.
But the monitoring group warned numbers were probably underestimates. ‘We believe that the real number of people that had been killed by IS is higher than the number documented,’ it said on its website.
