Sun Nov 6, 2016 19:24:51

The ISIS Takfiri terrorist group executed over half a dozen former members with blunt knives as yet another method of barbaric torturing after capturing them for fleeing the Mosul battlefield.

"At least seven ISIS terrorists were beheaded with blunt knives in Koukajli region in the Eastern part of Mosul city after accusing them of fleeing the battlefield," the Arabic-language al-Sumeriya news quoted a local source as saying on Sunday.

The source noted that the ISIS executed its defected members after tying up their hands and feet at a military base in the Center of Mosul city.

Iraq's joint military forces seized back Koukajli region in Eastern Mosul in recent days.

In late October, the eyewitnesses said that seven militants who fled from the battles raging in Iraq’s Northern Nineveh Province were executed and the ISIS announced their charge as "high treason".

"Those fighters had left their posts in Mosul city without permission, heading to the Syrian border,” media activist Abdullah al-Malla said.

The militants were arrested by their comrades in ISIS's proclaimed police also known as Diwan al-Hisba, shortly after they crossed into Syria’s Eastern Deir Ezzur province.

Earlier on Sunday, Spokesman of Iraq's Hezbollah al-Nujaba Movement Seyed Hashem al-Moussavi said that volunteer forces stay behind Tal Afar's gates to let army's special units and security forces to fight ISIS in the city.

"The popular forces aim to block ISIS movements from Nineveh province in Northwestern Iraq to Syria, specially Raqqa," al-Moussavi told FNA.

"We are liberating and purging the terrorists from the villages in the Western parts of Nineveh to reach Tal Afar and then surround it," he added.

Al-Moussavi underlined the importance of the Western parts of Nineveh province, and said, "Cutting off this axis will stop aid to the terrorists who are trafficking between Mosul and Syria and we can then fully separate Nineveh from Syria, especially Raqqa."

Noting that the popular forces don’t intend to enter the center of Tal Afar city, Moussavi said based on previous agreements, the Iraqi army and anti-terrorism forces will enter Tal Afar and the popular forces will only lay siege on the city and cut off the terrorists' supply routes.

He said in addition to cutting off the terrorists' supply routes from Iraq to Syria, the popular forces are also safeguarding the borders between the two countries and have facilitated capture of the terrorists in all parts of the region.

A senior commander announced on Saturday that the Iraqi volunteer forces (Hashd al-Shaabi) was recapturing more lands to the West of Mosul as the country's army laid siege on ISIS terrorists South of the city.

"Hashd al-Shaabi has seized back over 56 villages since the beginning of the Mosul liberation operation," the Arabic-language media quoted Senior Hashd al-Shaabi Commander Javad al-Talibavi as saying on Saturday.

Meantime, he said that the Iraqi army and federal police laid siege on the ISIS terrorists in Hamam al-Alil market to the South of Mosul city.

He noted that most of the supply routes to the ISIS has been cut off, and said, "We fully destroyed the terrorists' Abu Omar al-Baghdadi armored battalion that was formed by the ISIS to confront the Iraqi volunteer forces in Western Mosul."

Al-Talibavi also said that the liberation operation of the city of Tal Afar will be easy for the Iraqi volunteer forces because the ISIS terrorists have already realized that they are incapable of confronting the volunteer forces.

Earlier on Saturday, Commander of Iraq's Popular Mobilization Forces Hadi al-Ameri said volunteer forces have seized full control of the ISIS-controlled roads linking the city of Mosul in Iraq to Raqqa in Syria.

"We have expanded control over the strategic Tal al-Zalat intersection and seized control over vital roads and supply routes, including Tal Afar-al-Mohlabieh-Mosul road," al-Ameri, who is also the Badr Organization Secretary General, said.

He noted that volunteer forces have also imposed control over the strategic Tal Abteh to al-Ba'aj road which was the most important route of the ISIS to Syria.

The Iraqi volunteer forces have started fresh military operations in the Western part of Mosul to cut off ISIS's supply routes between Mosul and Raqqa, FNA reported.
