BEIRUT — Even by Islamic State standards, the accusation seems shocking. Earlier this week, Syrian activists say, a militant from the notoriously brutal group stood in front of a crowd, condemned his own mother and then shot her in the head.
One of the groups – the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights – said in a report Friday that the 20-year-old man murdered his mother, who was in her 40s, “in front of hundreds of people near the post office building … where she was employed.”
The Britain-based Observatory said the incident started with an argument between the mother and son over his commitment to the Islamic State. The mother objected to his membership in the group, prompting him to order her arrest.
“… After that he told ISIS and, 1-2-3, they arrest his mother.” Although the Islamic State is prolific in publicizing its executions, Abdulrahman said he did not know whether the murder had been filmed.
She was accused of apostasy, he said, speculating that she could have been murdered because she was a member of a Syria’s Alawite religious minority. Alawites, whose members dominate the upper echelons of Syria’s government and military, are an offshoot of Shiite Islam and condemned as apostates by hard-line Sunni groups such as the Islamic State.

ISIS Militant Who Allegedly Executed Own Mother Denies It & Issues ‘Press Release’

Syrian terrorism watchdog Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently reported that Islamic State militant Ali Saqr, 20, executed his own mother, Leena Al-Qasem, 35, for apostasy. Saqr released a statement denying it.
On January 8, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights seemed to verify the claim, writing "that her son executed her in front of hundreds of people near the post office building in the city of Al-Raqqah where she was employed." Before her execution, she was arrested and charged with “inciting her son to leave the Islamic State... [because] the Coalition will kill all members of the organization."
Just to please the Islamic Allah ?
