ISIS jihadists execute man by drowning him in detergent liquid for supporting Iraqi forces
Extremists of the Islamic State (ISIS) on Thursday executed an Iraqi man in Mosul city by drowning him in a disinfectant detergent liquid.
The radical group released a video showing the brutal execution, claiming that the victim was spying for Iraqi government forces.
While drowning him, ISIS broadcasted a call between the man and an Iraqi radio station.
“This infidel has been supporting the Iraqi regime’s campaign to take Mosul,” one of the militants said, adding that the city needs to be cleansed with Dettol detergent.
According to Raafat al-Zarari, the head of Nineveh Media Centre, the execution was another attempt by ISIS to terrify the people of Mosul.
“The group considers anyone with suspicious activities as a spy for rival forces,” al-Zarari told ARA News. “These brutal executions will continue until ISIS is eliminated completely in Mosul.”
This comes as US-backed Iraqi forces started the second phase of the battle for Mosul against Islamic State’s militants.
On October 17th, 2016, the Iraqi Army and Kurdish Peshmerga forces launched a major battle for Mosul to liberate the city and its surroundings from ISIS.
