A sickening video has emerged showing a woman being publicly executed by Al Qaeda militants for alleged adultery.

Even the Islamic State is sickened by the brutal video which was posted on social media.

Reports say the footage shows a woman - dressed in a black robe and hijab, being ordered to kneel on the pavement in the presence of a crowd of masked jihadi mob in Syria.

And behind her a fighter says she has been convicted by an Islamic court for being an adulterer and condemning her for allegedly running a brothel.

A gunmen then pulls out a pistol and shoots her in the head with a single shot as chants of Allahu Akbar - Arabic for God is greatest - ring out from the mob.

The video has since drawn condemnation even from rival Islamists, with one ISIS supporter asking "which Sharia (Islamic law) is that???".

Although the footage hasn't been proven to be authentic, it appears to have been filmed by a jihadi fighter on a mobile phone, reportedly from Ma'arrat al-Numan in the north-western city of Idlib.
