IRAQ: ISIS HAS EXECUTED 5 SUNNI TRIBESMEN AND BEHEADED 6 OF THEIR OWN MILITANTS FOR SPYING
July 8, 2016: The Islamic State (Isis) militant group has executed 6 of their own fighters and 5 Sunni tribesmen in Iraq for allegedly spying for their enemies.
Reports have emerged from several news agencies in Iraq that Daesh (Isis) beheaded 6 of their own fighters in Mosul on Wednesday 6 July on charges of 'treason' after accusing them of leaking crucial security information to the US-led coalition operating in northern Iraq.
They were said to have been interrogated by senior IS commanders before being handed their sentences by the Mosul Sharia Court.
Then on 7 July in a new photo report purportedly released by IS militants in Azim, around 80 miles north of Baghdad, 5 Sunni tribesmen were executed. They were accused of assisting the Popular Mobilisation Forces (PMF), which is an Iraqi state-sponsored organisation comprising some 40 militias including Shiite, Yazidi, Christian and some Sunni brigades.
The report has not been independently verified by the IBTimes UK but the ARA News network have quoted a media activist named Abdullah al-Malla who cited an IS official saying: "The ISIS leadership suspected that the al-Hisba members were leaking confidential information to the western coalition - whose airstrikes have recently killed top jihadi officials.
"After interrogation, the Mosul Sharia Court issued a decision to publicly execute the 6 suspects. The 6 jihadis were beheaded in front of dozens of IS officials in central Mosul," al-Malla added. (Sources: ibtimes.co.uk, July 8, 2016)
