| by Karen Eisenberg

Thirteen teenage males were shot to death by an ISIS machine gun firing squad, for committing the crime of watching soccer. The young boys were caught viewing Iraq play Jordan in the Asian Cup on television, which was televised from Brisbane, Australia.

The Daily Mail reports, the teenage boys were kidnapped by ISIS, and then executed publically. ISIS justified the execution by claiming the male teenagers were participating in "homosexual activities." According to eye witness reports, an ISIS militant was heard speaking to the crowd during the execution, and blaming the teenagers for their own deaths. 

Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, an activist organization, is privately documenting the cruelty caused by ISIS, and releasing videos for public consumption.

Parents of the victims are too afraid to pick up the bodies of their dead children. According to an Australian news site,, Raqqa described the horror on its website, “The bodies remained lying in the open and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by terrorist organization.”
