In a new photo report purportedly released by the Islamic State, an ISIS-affiliate group in the Yarmouk Palestinian refugee camp shows off the heads of beheaded “traitors.” The photo report was released on January 3 on ISIS terrorist channels. A an accompanying summary of the photo report reads: “Spoils taken from Sahwat al Murtadeen and their corpses in Yarmouk Basin by Jaish Khalid ibn al-Walid.” “Jaish” is Arabic for “army.” According to the Long War Journal, “the Islamic State’s opponents… are part of the ‘sahwat,’ meaning they are supposedly part of the ‘awakenings,’ which received crucial assistance from the U.S. during the fight against the Islamic State’s predecessor organization, al-Qaeda in Iraq (AQI).” A “murtadeen” is an “apostate” in Arabic.

ISIS calls its “war booty” “ghanimah,” which is an Islamic term. According to the Oxford Dictionary, “In classical Islam, wealth taken by force from an enemy in times of war. There were considerable differences among the classical jurists concerning rights to, and possession of, such wealth. All were agreed, however, that ghanimah was to be distributed in accordance with the shares specified in the Quranic directive in surah 8:41.” Above, ISIS militants show off stolen weapons.

Quranic verse 8:41 reads: “And know that anything you obtain of war booty – then indeed, for Allah is one fifth of it and for the Messenger and for [his] near relatives and the orphans, the needy, and the [stranded] traveler, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our Servant on the day of criterion – the day when the two armies met. And Allah , over all things, is competent.” Above, ISIS militants show off stolen weapons. Above, ISIS militants show off stolen weapons.

ISIS isn’t the only militant group causing unrest in Damascus and Syria. According to the BBC, “There are believed to be as many as 1,000 armed opposition groups in Syria, commanding an estimated 100,000 fighters. Many of the groups are small and operate on a local level, but a number have emerged as powerful forces with affiliates across the country or formed alliances with other groups that share a similar agenda.” Above, an ISIS militant stands on the decapitated head of a sahwat “apostate.”
