Erbil, Kurdistan Region – The Islamic State (IS/ISIS) executed ten doctors in the city of Mosul under the pretext of not treating wounded IS militants, a medical source in Mosul’s general hospital told ARA News on Tuesday.
The number of injured IS fighters arriving in Mosul’s hospitals has reportedly increased in the last two weeks.
The source also confirmed that the radical group cleared Mosul’s major hospitals of patients and allocated them for its wounded militants.
The execution of doctors, according to the source who spoke on condition of anonymity, comes as part of a series of practices carried out by the extremists against the population of the city of Mosul who resist the group’s control of the city.
The tension has reportedly increased inside the city, amid harsh living conditions due to the lack of medicine, water, electricity and fuel in addition to the constant civil rights violations against civilians, mainly those suspected of opposing the Islamic State’s regulations.
Samir Awja, a resident of Mosul, told ARA News that the access tohospitals in the city has been limited to meet the needs of the group’s military members, while civilians are denied admission for emergency operations.
“The IS radicals are monopolizing all basic supplies in Mosul, including medicines,” Awja said.
