It is alleged that Islamic State (Isis) militants have executed a Palestinian girl for supporting President Bashar al-Assad's Syrian regime, which is currently fighting the Islamist group as well as rebel factions that are seeking to topple the government.

Hadil Yassin Abu al-Madi, was a resident of al-Yarmouk district in capital Damascus, parts of which are under IS control.

The IS-led Hisba Police reportedly arrested Madi on Wednesday (28 December) on suspicion of cooperating with the Syrian regime's secret service, Mukhabarat. They produced her in front of a Sharia court in Yarmouk, which found her guilty of spying and ordered her immediate execution.

"Isis militants publicly executed Hadil in al-Yarmouk. Dozens of people witnessed the brutal execution," local media activist Wissam Doghmoush told Kurdish-linked Syrian news outlet ARA News.

IBTimes UK could not independently verify the report.

Executions and brutal killings by Isis are nothing new for the people living in war-torn Syria. The jihadist group is known for beheading and burning people alive, who challenge their so-called Islamic caliphate or disobey their orders. The group has been equally brutal to its own fighters who dared to defect or betray the group.
