Members of the Takfiri ISIS group in Iraq executed 10 doctors in Mosul on Wednesday as part of their continued terrorism against Christians and other religious and political groups throughout the Middle East.
The doctors were executed in the Hammam al-Alil area south of Mosul after refusing to treat wounded ISIS members, Iraq's al-Sumaria satellite TV network first reported. The doctors reportedly refused to do so because they did not support ISIS' activities; they were then forced to sit and shot in the back of the head. A photograph taken at the exact moment has been widely circulated, confirming the brutality of the radical Islamic jihadists.
ISIS members murdered 60 Sunni tribal fighters in the Anbar province on Friday, and accused members of al-Karableh, Albu Ubaid, Albu Mahal and Albu Salman tribesmen of working with Iraqi security forces before killing them. A struggle between Iraqi forces and ISIS has led to a significant number of deaths: 997 Iraqis were killed in March alone. more >>
Mass graves of around 1,700 soldiers are believed to have been uncovered by forensic teams in Tikrit, Iraq, after the city was recently liberated from terror group ISIS. A government spokesman said that the soldiers were killed sometime in 2014.
"We dug up the first mass grave site today (Monday). Until now we found at least 20 bodies. Initial indications show indisputably that they were from the Speicher victims," Khalid al-Atbi, an Iraqi health official, told Reuters.
He added: "It was a heartbreaking scene. We couldn't prevent ourselves from breaking down in tears. What savage barbarian could kill 1,700 persons in cold blood?" more >>
In the newly released edition of the Islamic State's monthly English-language magazine, the terrorist group featured and quoted three American "crusaders," including potential 2016 presidential candidate Rick Santorum, who have consistently voiced their concerns with the jihadists' rise and ambitions.
The Dabiq article titled "In the Words of the Enemy" features photos of Santorum, Virginia state Sen. Richard Black and former CIA officer and author Gary Berntsen, who are all quoted at length in the article on their various warnings about the group's abilities to expand its caliphate.
Santorum, who's a former U.S. senator from Pennsylvania and the runner-up in the 2012 Republican presidential primary election, has been speaking at length in speeches and appearances about the ISIS threat and the need to "bomb ISIS back to the seventh century." more >>
In the newest edition of its monthly English-language magazine, the Islamic State terrorist group attempts to justify the use of child executioners in two of its publicized execution videos by stating that coercing children to commit murder is consistent with Muhammad's teachings and the muslim way of life.
According to Radio Free Europe, the eighth edition of ISIS' Dabiq magazine contains an article titled "The Lions of Tomorrow," which praises two children who carried out videoed executions of alleged "spies." One of the boys was seen shooting dead two alleged "Russian spies" in a video released in January, while the other boy was featured in a video released in early March that showed him killing an alleged "Israeli spy."
Although many in the West were stunned or appalled to see the militant group using children who looked no older than 12 to ruthlessly commit heinous executions, the article justifies using children to carry out their acts of terror by declaring that the practice is part of the "Sunnah," or the Muslim way of life based on Muhammad's teachings and interpretations of the Quran. more >>
A mixed Sunni-Shia family that once lived in ISIS' Iraqi stronghold of Mosul but has fled to live in the Kurdish north after the militant group took over the town last June, has provided deeper insight and revelations about the horrors that people living under the jihadis brand of sharia rule must deal with.
In an interview with the Iraqi news website Rudaw that was published on Tuesday, the Al-Saraj family, with the father being a Sunni and the mother being a Shia, explained that although they are now living in the Kurdish town of Dohuk, they still maintain contact with their friends and loved ones that are still inside Mosul and subjected to the barbarity of the group's rule.
While it is no secret that the Islamic State regularly amputates the hands of grown adults who have been accused of stealing inside its strongholds, apparently no exception is given by the militants when a child is accused of stealing. more >>
Media reports have surfaced indicating that the Islamic State has blown up the homes of 10 Christian families in the northern Ninevah province of Iraq, while a leading human rights organization has reported that Iraqi Security Forces burned down two whole Sunni civilian villages in Iraq last September.
As the Islamic State's systematic destruction of Christian property in Iraq continues, a security source has revealed that the militant group blew up and demolished 10 homes belonging to Christian families in Iraq's depleted northern Ninevah province.
The anonymous security source told Iraq's al-Sumaria satellite television network that ISIS militants raided the abandoned homes on Tuesday in the town of Qada' Talkif, which is about 15 miles northeast of ISIS' Iraqi stronghold of Mosul. more >>
