The Islamic State, who maintain control of the area, rounded up the 13 youngsters and performed a public execution using a firing squad armed with machine guns as claimed by anti-ISIS activist group ‘Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently’, reports the Daily Mail.

Tensions between Jordan and Iraq are notably high with Jordanian leaders worried that their neighbouring country has become a harbour for terrorist groups with Jordan even reportedly helping the US to track down Al-Qaeda in Iraq leader Abu Musab al-Zarqawi.

According to anti-ISIS activist groups’ website the bodies remain in the open for passersbys to see as parents of the deceased are too fearful to collect their bodies.

Watching football is against religious law – and the boys were horrifyingly executed for their crime.
