Kurdish outlet Rudaw is reporting that Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists are allegedly killing tailors in Mosul, Iraq, if they refuse to sew garments for the jihadis.
“ISIS arrested 15 tailors inside Mosul after they refused to sew the Afghani clothes for the militants of ISIS, and today they executed four of the detainees,” explained Saeed Mamuzini, a Kurdistan Democratic Party official from Mosul.
Mamuzini also told Rudaw a mass grave with 60 bodies was discovered in the city. He did not state who found it or whether the bodies in the grave have been identified.
The Islamic State took over Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, in June 2014. They have since driven out one of the largest Christian communities, who inhabited the city peacefully with Muslims for over 2,000 years, and established their radical interpretation of Sharia law.
Earlier this month, Mamuzini informed Rudaw that ISIS destroyed another historic church, which killed four children, who stood close to the demolition.
Militants also executed Abu Usman, who was appointed by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi to lead Mosul, for allegedly planning a coup. Other reports claim they did it because of “internal differences among the Isis commanders in Mosul.” But all the 250 men underneath Usman traveled back to Raqqa, Syria, which is the defacto capital of the Caliphate.
In June, ISIS released a video that shows two separate executions. Militants place handcuffed prisoners in a cage, which is then lowered to drown the men. The video then cuts to more prisoners locked in a car, chained together with a similar necklace. A group of terrorists shoot the car with an RPG, which explodes on contact.
