Report: Islamic State Drowns Seven in Mosul

A witness in the captive city of Mosul, Iraq, claims that the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) drowned seven civilians in an iron cage as a public spectacle.

“Today, ISIS members executed seven civilians by drowning inside metal cages in al-Faysaliya area in central Mosul on charges of collaboration with the Iraqi government, Peshmerga and Asayish in Kurdistan region,” an anonymous source told Ahlul Bayt News.

The source said the group filmed the execution. The Shariah Court in Nineveh Province sentenced them to death, but the source did not say what crime they committed.

The Islamic State has executed thousands of prisoners, some by drowning, in the self-declared Caliphate that spans across Iraq and Syria.
