It is shock and apprehension in Syria as four popular footballers were beheaded by deadly terrorist group, ISIS.
The bodies of the executed popular footballers
According to Dailymail, ISIS militants have executed four footballers in Syria after its religious leaders said supporting football was anti-Islamic.
The four victims played for the Al-Shabab in Syria and were beheaded in front of a crowd of children in Raqqa after they were accused of spying for the Kurdish YPG.
