ISIS Executes Five Senior Iraqi Army Officers

Members of the Takfiri ISIL terrorist group have reportedly executed five high-ranking Iraqi army officers in Iraq’s northern province of Nineveh.

Security sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said on Wednesday that the ISIL extremists killed the Iraqi military personnel by firing squad in the militant-held city of Mosul, located some 400 kilometers (248 miles) north of the capital, Baghdad.

The development comes almost a week after the ISIL terrorists burned to death sixteen civilians in the western al-Islah neighborhood of Mosul, after the men refused to pledge allegiance to the terrorist group’s leader, Ibrahim al-Samarrai, aka Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

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

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

Iraqi soldiers, police units, Kurdish forces, Shia volunteers and Sunni tribesmen have succeeded in driving the ISIL terrorists out of some areas in Iraq.
