Mosul: ISIL Executes 14 Caged Civilians by Drowning in Water
“A sum of 14 Iraqi civilians were arrested in al-Fasilieh district in the center of the city of Mosul on spying charges for the government and Peshmerga forces, and were later submerged in iron cages,” the Arabic-language media quote an unnamed sources as saying.
The ISIL terrorists filmed the execution of the Iraqi civilians while they were caught in iron cages.
In a relevant development earlier this week, the ISIL executed several of its opponents in a brutal manner in the city of Mosul in Nineveh province.
A video released by the terrorists shows 3 militants of M resistance movement (an opponent group of the ISIL) were shot in the head by the ISIL and 3 others were beheaded by the terrorist group on Sunday.
The video showed the ISIL terrorists shooting in the head of their opponents from close range.
The ISIL also beheaded three others on spying charges and for filming the terrorist groups’ military positions and vehicles.
Also earlier in August, the ISIL terrorists executed tens of civilians in Kirkuk province as they were trying to escape from Takfiri militants.
Hassan Mahmoud al-Soufi, a commander of popular forces, told the Arabic-language al-Sumaria television network that terrorists executed 61 people, among them a woman, by firing squad at a militant base on the outskirts of the town of Hawijah.
An earlier report provided by the UN refugee agency UNHCR had disclosed that the ISIL terrorists may have captured up to 3,000 fleeing Iraqi villagers.
The report followed a statement on Thursday from the Iraqi Observatory for Human rights, which said about 1,900 civilians had been captured by an estimated 100-120 ISIL terrorists.
The observatory said ISIL was using people as shields against attacks by Iraqi security forces, adding scores of civilians had been executed, and six burnt.
The report said the Takfiri group had captured the internally displaced people from villages in Hawijah District in Kirkuk Governorate trying to flee to Kirkuk city.
The Iraqi army and volunteer forces are preparing for a final push to dislodge ISIL from Mosul.
