The notorious so-called Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants have executed 12 Sunni clerics in northern Iraqi city of Mosul.

The ISIL terrorists executed 12 Sunni clerics in front of Al-Isra Mosque in Mosul for refusing to take an oath of allegiance to the terror gang, state-run broadcaster al-Iraqiya reported on Saturday.

In another incident, ISIL elements executed and dismembered Mosul’s Central Mosque Imam (prayer leader) for turning down militants' offer of joining them, local clerics said.

The extremist militants from ISIL have captured two provincial capitals this week, namely Tikrit in the Salaheddin Province and Iraq’s second city of Mosul in the northern Nineveh Province.

According to Iraqi media reports, a district in Salaheddin Province has been completely cleared from terrorists. They say dozens of militants were gunned down in an army attack in southern Mosul.

Prime Minister al-Maliki has blamed Saudi Arabia and Qatar for the security crisis and growing terrorism in his country, denouncing Riyadh as a major supporter of global terrorism.
