ISIL Takfiri militants have executed an Iraqi female rights activist in the city of Mosul for criticizing the terrorist group on the social media.
Samira Salih al-Nuaimi, a well-known campaigner for human rights, was taken from her home on September 17 after allegedly posting messages on Facebook, in which she slammed the destruction of religious sites in the Iraqi city by the ISIL.
A statement released by the United Nations Assistance Mission in Iraq said al-Nuaimi was tried in a kangaroo court for apostasy and was publicly executed by the group on Monday, September 22.
“By torturing and executing a female human rights lawyer and activist, defending in particular the civil and human rights of her fellow citizens in Mosul, ISIL continues to attest to its infamous nature, combining hatred, nihilism and savagery, as well as its total disregard of human decency,” UN envoy to Iraq Nickolay Mladenov said.
Since early this year, Iraq has been facing a growing militancy by ISIL Takfiri group and its allied militants, who have taken over areas in the country’s west and north. The crisis has deteriorated since June, when the ISIL declared a so-called caliphate in the territories they have seized.
Mosul, which is Iraq’s second largest city, has also been captured during militants’ rapid advance across the country. The ISIL cult destroyed a number of historic landmarks in the city last month, including several mosques and shrines.
The ISIL terrorists have threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds, in Iraq. They have been committing heinous crimes in the areas they have taken, including the mass execution of civilians as well as Iraqi army troops and officers.
