Terrorists with the Islamic State put to death 13 teenage boys in Mosul for watching a soccer match between Iraq and Jordan on television.

The teens were caught by the Islamic State members in Mosul, an area of the group’s control. Shortly before the teens were killed, their “crime” of violating Shariah law was broadcast over a loudspeaker, the New York Post reported.

“The bodies remained lying in the open, and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by the terrorist organization,” the activist group, Raqqa Is Being Slaughtered Silently, reported on its website.

The teens were executed by firing squad and machine gun.
