ISIL executes six people aiming to flee area under control
The Takfiri ISIL group has executed six people in the northern Iraqi province of Kirkuk for attempting to flee an area under the control of the terrorist outfit.
According to a local source in the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Tuesday, ISIL executed six brothers from two families, who were about to flee from a district in the city, and raised their bodies on electricity poles.
The source explained that the Takfiri group executed the Iraqi people by “shooting them dead in front of a gathering of people in the center of the village of al-Hegel.”
According to the source, they were executed for “their attempt to flee from the village of Asudaira in the district of Hawija.”
The United Nations (UN)’s human rights office said on Tuesday that a growing number of people in Iraq have encountered deadly ambushes as they try to escape areas controlled by the Takfiri group.
“ISIL gunmen have also begun to set ambushes for people fleeing and ISIL snipers have reportedly attacked and killed those caught,” according to the OHCHR.
Violence has plagued the northern and western parts of Iraq ever since ISIL launched its deadly terror campaign in 2014, and took control of portions of Iraqi territory.
