The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which reports on the atrocities being carried out in the ongoing civil war, said on Friday that its activists were able to document the incident, which took place in the city of Al-Raqqah.
The report said the woman was in her 40s, and “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.”
She was apparently killed for “inciting her son to leave the Islamic state and escaping together” outside the city.
The 20-year-old son is said to have reported his mom to IS higher-ups, who ordered her arrest, and then had the young jihadist execute his own mother before hundreds of people in the city.
The Guardian reported that local sources identified the woman was from the town of Jabla, and said she also has a 25-year-old daughter.
One resident, who wasn’t named, said this was the first known case of an IS militant killing his own mother.
“People are shocked that someone can kill his own mother in such cold blood. He was known to be a bad apple but nobody imagined he would go so far as to kill his own mother. Everybody is asking how they could have brainwashed him so much?” the resident said.
The terror group, which has captured large cities and territories across Iraq and Syria, has become infamous for its horrific human rights abuses, from carrying out beheadings and mass shootings, to the forced sexual slavery of women and girls.
The terror group has persecuted Christians and other minority groups heavily, at times forcing them to choose between their faith and their lives.
An Iraqi soldier who escaped an IS prison said in a report earlier this week that the extremists are torturing a number of Christians in their prisons, sometimes even burning them alive.
“They tortured the [expletive] out of the Christians and some died in the process,” Sergeant Karam Saad of the Iraqi military said.
“They would take some and lock them in a kind of casket, and set it on fire from the inside,” he added. “I only spent three nights in prison. During that time, I paid attention to how many guards were on duty and any signs of weaker security.”

Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible.
