Children, elderly forced by ISIS to perform brutal executions
Children and the elderly are being forced by the Islamic State (ISIS) to conduct executions at the terrorist group’s stronghold in Mosul, Iraq.
The forced atrocities are taking place in the area of Iraq where liberation forces backed by the United States are strategizing to carry out their operation geared to eradicate the besieged city from the Islamic militant organization.
Newly produced ISIS propaganda footage depicting the Islamic terrorists performing executions and various other punishments in Mosul were recently released by The Mirror.
“In the sickening new footage, children and pensioners are shown being forced to carry out horrific executions,” The Mirror reports. “Ruthless ISIS leaders are also shown crucifying alleged traitors in a bid to terrorize the remaining population under their control.”
Driving out the jihadists
With approximately 5,000 ISIS terrorists stationed in the Mosul stronghold, the Iraqi government believes that the operation to drive them out could last several months.
“The battle of Mosul will not be a picnic,” insisted Hadi al-Amiri, who leads the Badr Organization – the largest Shia militia fighting alongside the Iraqi government’s forces. “We are prepared for the battle of Mosul – even if it lasts for months.”
With Mosul being the largest remaining stronghold for ISIS in Iraq, defeating its forces is key, as nearly 1.5 million people still reside in the fallen Iraqi city that has been besieged and controlled over the last two years by the jihadists.
But the terrorist group’s stranglehold in Iraq extends far beyond Mosul’s boundaries, and its wrath even spreads within its own ranks.
“IS has carried out killings of Christians, Yazidis and other religious minorities in its captured cities throughout Iraq and Syria, but it has also executed its own fighters on a number of occasions,” The Christian Post informed.
It is reported that ISIS deserters suffer the same fate as infidels who convert from Islam to Christianity.
“ISIS terrorist gangs executed nine of its members for fleeing the battle against the security forces in Mosul by throwing them in trenches containing burning oil – after tying their hands and legs,” Al Sumaria News reported. “ISIS used the burning oil trenches to impede the visibility of the Iraqi Air Force and international Coalition Air Force.”
Another report from the news agency highlighted a celebrated Iraqi marksman many refer to as the “Sniper of Mosul” –because he has grown famous for fatally shooting numerous ISIS terrorists throughout the city. He reportedly helped to save the life of an Iraqi teenager right before he was about to be beheaded for allegedly supporting the coalition’s offensive to drive the jihadists from Mosul.
“The emergence of the Sniper of Mosul – as the residents call him, — increased the pace of the popular resistance against ISIS,” the agency announced. “The presence of the sniper in four neighborhoods emphasizes that there are many snipers – and not only one.”
A number of villages surrounding Mosul have already been liberated by Iraqi ground forces as they continue to advance toward the war-torn city. Despite the operation’s success in the surrounding area so far, ISIS has shown no signs of surrendering its main stronghold city of Mosul.
