LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - As it appears, even ISIS supporters are sickened by this heinous sentencing. "The shocking video has generated a surprising amount of anger from Islamic State supporters, who have condemned the public execution of a woman," stated Daily Mail.

According to Daily Mail, one ISIS supporter, known as Abu Hammad, expressed his disgust about the unIslamic nature of the execution: "Jabhat al-Nusra kills a woman by shooting for adultery. Which Sharia is that???"

Save Christians from genocide now!

Another Muslim tweeter expressed the fact that "she doesn't look the woman pimp type."

The footage appears to be rendered by Jabhat al-Nusra, an Al-Qaeda affiliated group in Syria.

This particular branch of the terrorist group first appeared in Syria in 2012. Al-Qaeda announced that Jabhat al-Nusra had become a part of the merger group ISIS. However, the top commander of Jabhat al-Nusra, Abu Muhammad al-Julani, rejected the merging and pledged his ultimate allegiance to Al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri.

This blatant show of disrespect led to fierce clashes between ISIS and the terrorist group shown in the video.

Although both groups believe in the Sharia law, clearly the underlining meanings differ.

In the video, the woman, dressed in all black besides her red cardigan, is forced on her knees, with her hands tied behind her back.

Several of the other fighters begin filming the execution on their own personal mobile devices.

The senior religious member of the Al-Qaeda affiliated group declares that the woman has been convicted by an Islamic court of being an adulterer. She attempts to interrupt, but the man continues to condemn her for allegedly running a brothel in the city. He declares such crimes as punishable by death, under Sharia law.

Unlike their rival terrorist group, ISIS, the execution site is chaotic. The crowd is rowdy and chants of "Allahu Akbar," meaning God is greatest, can be heard. With a single shot straight in the head, the woman is killed.
