Daesh executes Syrian poet Al-Aani and his young son in Deir Ezzor for ‘infidelity’
Barbarian Daesh mercenary-terrorists killed the poet Mohammad Bashir al-Aani and his son Elyas in Deir Ezzor city.
Mohammed Bashir al-Aani and his son Elyas were kidnapped in the eastern town of Deir Ezzor in September 2015 and taken to an unknown location.
Al-Aani, who was born in 1960, is one of the prominent poets from the eastern Deir Ezzor province and a member of ‘Arab Writers Union in Syria’.
The 56-year-old poet and his son were killed on charges of ‘apostasy’.
Little is known about the poet’s son Elyas, but photos circulated by activists show a young man in his early 20s.

Al-Aani was known for his lyrical style. He wrote and published in Syria three books of poetry.
