ISIL terrorists burn five-member Iraqi family to death, amputates own members
Takfiri Daesh terrorists have burned the entire five members of an Iraqi family alive after accusing them of trying to escape terrorist-held territories.
The victims, including three children, were set on fire in public in the Riyadh district of the northern Iraqi city of Kirkuk on Tuesday.
The terror group has recently banned civilians from leaving the areas under its control in a bid to use them as human shields amid new advances by Iraqi security forces closing in on them.
The Takfiri group is engaged in a campaign of terror, which involves gruesome methods such as beheadings, summary executions and kidnapping.
Also on Tuesday, Daesh buried 35 of its own members alive for allegedly fleeing the battlefield in northern Iraq.
The militants were buried on the outskirts of the town of Qayyarah, south of the city of Mosul, after they allegedly deserted and the terrorist group lost control of the village of Bashir on May 1.
On Thursday, Iraq’s al-Forat news agency reported that Daesh had cut off the legs of 20 of its members who had allegedly attempted to escape the battlefield.
The heinous act was carried out in Qayyarah, after the extremists allegedly attempted to flee the northern village of Kabrouk in Nineveh Province, which was liberated by Iraqi forces on Monday.
According to the report, Daesh used a special metal tool to cut the limbs, which later led to the death of the victims.
Earlier, on Wednesday, Daesh released a 12-minute video purportedly showing the execution of five alleged “spies” in Nineveh by young men from a crowd gathered to watch the killing.
The video displays the “confessions” of five men from the provincial capital, Mosul, detailing how they passed on intelligence on the activities and the positions of the terrorists.
Five executioners are then shown standing behind the prisoners, who are in orange jumpsuits.
Moments later, a Daesh element asks for “volunteers” to kill the “spies” and then five terrorists in combat gear are replaced by “civilians” to whom they give their handguns to shoot the accused in the back of the head.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since the Daesh terrorists began their acts of terror in the Arab country in the summer of 2014.
In recent months, Daesh has been pushed out of much of the land it previously captured in Iraq in 2014. The terror group has suffered heavy losses in ongoing offensives by the Iraqi army and Popular Mobilization forces
