ERBIL – A security member from the radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) was killed by locals in Iraq’s northern city of Mosul after sexually harassing a women in the city, local sources reported on Tuesday.
Local activists confirmed that the jihadi militant was stabbed to death in the district of Aden eastern Mosul.
Speaking to ARA News in Mosul, head of the Nineveh media center Raafat al-Zarari said that a member of the ISIS security forces [also known as al-Hisba Police] who was responsible for enforcing ISIS’s regulations in the city, was killed by a group of civilian people in the district of Aden in Mosul after he tried to harass a woman in the area.
“The jihadi was captured by a group of civilians and slaughtered on charges of sexual harassment,” the source reported.
“Many people [who were seen carrying knives] attacked the official and stabbed him several times all over his body,” an eyewitness told ARA News. “The perpetrators disappeared before the ISIS-linked police patrols arrive in the area.”
“Al-Hisba police members have taken his corps to the hospital, but he died several hours later,” the source added, speaking on condition of anonymity.
The jihadi official, before his death, used to monitor the women and men who violate the group’s regulation in the district, according to local sources.
Speaking to ARA News in Erbil, Kurdish journalist Idris Badini said: “No one denies that these barbaric insurgents [ISIS] capture women and used them as sex slaves in their areas of control in Syria and Iraq. This is a main motivation for the group’s members to even turn into suicide bombers; they are dying for reaching the eternal and unlimited sex,” he argued.
“If we did not understand their real motivation for killing themselves and innocent people, we will never be able to defeat them,” Badini said.
The radical group in the district of Aden of Mosul did not take any procedures against the people of the district for fear of a possible uprising against ISIS in the region, especially the group currently faces challenges amid intenisified US-led coalition’s airstrikes on its command centers and vital locations in both Syria and Iraq for months, which have caused an apparent shortage in the group’s manpower.
