The terrorist organization Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has executed 2,154 people since the declaration of its so-called “Caliphate.”

Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR), a human rights group that reports on the conflict in Syria, said today it has documented ISIS executions in Syria during the 10-month period since the declaration of ISIS “Caliphate.”

The victims were charged with crimes such as insulting the God (blasphemy), spying for the benefit of the Nusayri regime, sodomy, and supporting People’s Defense Units (a.k.a. Yekîneyên Parastina Gel or YPG), which is the national army of Syrian Kurdistan.

Thus, according to SOHR, the number of people executed by Islamic State since the declaration of “Caliphate” in Syria between June 28, 2014 and April 28, 2015 has gone up to 2,154.

SOHR believes that the real number of people that had been killed by ISIS is higher than the number reported by it because there are hundreds of missing persons and detainees inside Islamic State’s jails.
