Iraqi security forces have obtained a document issued by ISIL showing that the Takfiri terrorist group has ordered its commanders to kill wounded militants in battlegrounds, reports IRNA.

The document instructs the commanders to kill those wounded during battles as the group faces a shortage of medical supplies in its stronghold in Mosul, according to IRNA.

It says that any commander disobeying the order will be severely punished.

The document also admits that the Takfiri terrorists are in a very bad situation under the rising pressure from the Iraqi army.

Iraqi soldiers and police units, Kurdish forces, Shia volunteer forces and Sunni tribesmen have recently succeeded in driving ISIL out of some areas in Iraq. The group has suffered huge blows over the past weeks as the Iraqi army continues to retake some key areas in the country’s central and Western parts. Terrorists have also suffered numerous setbacks in neighboring Syria.

The ISIL leadership in Mosul has also ordered killing of dozens of its commanders over the past weeks.

The ISIL terrorist group started its campaign of terror in Iraq in June 2014. The heavily armed militants took control of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The notorious terror elements have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against all Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.
