A Lebanese man lured his father to Raqqa, Syria — the self-proclaimed capital of the Islamic State terror group’s “caliphate” — to be beheaded by the Islamic extremist organization, according to a Lebanese TV report aired last week and picked up by Hebrew media on Friday.

The father, Mahmoud al-Hussein from the northern Lebanese coastal city of Tripoli, recently traveled to Syria to retrieve his two daughters who were convinced by their brother, Yehia al-Hussein, 20, to join the Islamic State, the report said.

According to Mahmoud al-Hussein’s brother, who spoke to Lebanon’s MTV news station, he was ambushed by the group his son and daughters now belonged to, charged with alleged crimes such as “insulting the Prophet Muhammad,” “contacts with the Turkish embassy,” and “relations with the Lebanese government,” and then beheaded.

“I received a picture of my brother being executed in front of his two daughters and son,” the brother told MTV, according to a Ynet translation.

The brother told the TV station that his nephew had recently returned to Lebanon following pressure from his family to leave the terror group but had departed back to Raqqa shortly thereafter with his sisters in tow after telling his parents he was taking them on a trip to Turkey.
