Four men have reportedly been beheaded by ISIS’ “Islamic Police” after allegedly committing blasphemy or “insulting almighty Allah.”


The men were killed near the city of Homs in Syria. 


The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported the beheadings. The human rights group also reported the murder of a man who was beheaded by the terrorist group and the stoning of a man and women for alleged adultery. Both incidents reportedly occurred in northern Syria. 


According to the Observatory, ISIS has killed 1,432 Syrians not in combat since the end of June.
