    ‘Mohammed Tano, 19, was executed by Hayat Tahrir al-Sham for alleged 'blasphemy', but activists say he had criticised the militant group's leader in private.’

    I personally wasn’t familiar with the HTS. The article explains;

    ‘HTS, which used to be affiliated to Al-Qaeda, dominates much of Syria's rebel-held Idlibprovince and parts of neighbouring Aleppo province, and has its own security apparatus and courts.

    It has imposed draconian restrictions on the local population - many of whom opposition activists fleeing from other parts of Syria - and has arrested many who oppose its ideology. Protests against its rule have taken place on numerous occasions.’
