Beirut — The ISIS has publicly executed a Syrian it accused of planting tracking devices for deadly regime air strikes, SITE Intelligence reported on Saturday.

The group posted footage of the accused being paraded before a crowd but the video deliberately freezes at the point an ISIS fighter pulls his head back and holds a knife to his neck, the US-based monitoring group said.

After the execution in Syria’s northern province of Aleppo, the fighters paraded the body of the accused on a cross.

ISIS charged that more than 190 people had been killed in the air strikes that the man had abetted.

In October and November, the Syrian regime sharply intensified its air strikes on areas held by ISIS or other rebel groups.

In just 40 days, some 2,000 strikes killed more than 500 people, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Some of the deadliest hit the ISIS “capital” of Raqa on November 25, killing at least 95 people, but air strikes have also hit the fighters in the eastern part of Aleppo province which they control.
