The Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham Mistakenly Decpitates One Of Its Own

by | 14th, November 2013

THE Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham regrets the error. Syria’s al Qaeda-affiliate misread the manual and decapitated Mohammed Fares, a commander with fellow rebel organisation Ahrar al-Sham. They didn’t mean to. They meant to murder someone else:

An ISIS spokesman, Omar al-Qahtani, confirmed that Mr Fares had been injured and, thinking he had been captured by members of a Shia militia against which he was fighting, asked them to kill him in terms misunderstood by the ISIS members in fact taking him to hospital…

In explaining the error Mr al-Qahtani made reference to a story in which Mohammed said Allah would forgive a man who killed a believer in error.

ISIS is upset. Heads will roll…
