Female dentist 'guilty' of treating male patient executed by Islamic State

Female dentist 'guilty' of treating male patient executed by Islamic State

           The brutalityunleashed by the Islamic State has reached new heights. Now, ISIS has executed a female dentist who was found 'guilty' of treating a male patient.

Dr Rou’aa Diab was a dentist in the historic city of Al-Mayadeen, located on the border of Iraq. Two days ago, she was nabbed by the Islamic State, along with four others. She was summarily executed without even the facade of a trial. The reasoning for the execution was bizarre, under the crime of “treating male patients”.

Diab’s death has created widespread dismay and anger in Al-Mayadeen, an area where the Islamic State continues to assert its brutal power. As the conflict reaches a feverish pitch in the war-ravaged country, the jihadist organisation has increased such brazen use of power. It is a potent tool to intimidate commoners.

Diab is one of the many civilians executed by the Islamic State over the last seven days. Syrian Government sources claim 700 civilians from a tribe in Deir ez-Zor were executed last week. Violence between tribal factions in Deir ez-Zor and the Islamic State has escalated over the last two weeks. Ironically these two groups used to have a good relationship earlier.
