ISIL Terrorists Kill 300 People in Iraq’s Mosul: Report

The ISIL Takfiri group has reportedly killed at least 300 members of the national electoral commission in the Iraqi city of Mosul. 

The terror group executed the civilians by firing squad at the al-Ghazlani camp on Friday afternoon, Mahmoud Surchi, a spokesman for Popular Mobilization units, told the country’s al-Sumaria satellite TV network.

The ISIL took over Mosul last June and later seized swathes of land in northern and western Iraq. The terrorists have since been committing heinous crimes against the people of all faiths and communities there, including both Muslims and Christians of either Arab or Kurdish ethnicity.

In March, Iraqi government forces backed by Shia and Sunni volunteer fighters managed to retake the major city of Tikrit from the ISIL as part of their quest to wrest control of Mosul.

Iraqi parliament speaker Salim al-Jabouri confirmed on Friday “the execution of more than 2,000 innocent citizens at the hands” of the ISIL since the group seized Iraq’s second-largest city in June 2014.

Furthermore, local sources in and around Mosul have said in interviews with AFP that 2,070 people have been killed by the ISIL since June last year.
