    The Daesh militants have publicly crucified and murdered two young men in the besieged Syrian city of Raqqa, a Sputnik correspondent reported Wednesday, citing witnesses at the scene.

    DAMASCUS (Sputnik) – Both men were accused of aiding the international coalition forces. The terrorists forced the civilians to gather on the square, where the execution was held, and observe the process.

    The Daesh terrorists also obliged each family in Raqqa to pay 2,000 Syrian pounds ($20) to close the streets of the city with dense material. Such measures, the witnesses claim, are implemented so that the foreign aviation could not reveal the location of the militants in the city.

    The northern city of Raqqa is considered de facto capital of the Daesh group. It was overran by the jihadists in 2013. The Syrian army, as well as the Kurdish militias, are currently carrying out offensives to liberate the city and the eponymous province from the Daesh, which is outlawed in many countries, including the United States and Russia.
