ERBIL – The radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) executed Sunday a university professor and a police officer near the northwestern Iraqi city of Mosul, local sources reported.
Speaking to ARA News in Mosul, media activist Abdullah Mullah said that masked militants of ISIS executed professor Wadallah Ibrahim Sultan, head of the Faculty of Law at al-Hadbaa University.
The terror group had arrested the victim in his house in al-Muthanna sub-district north of Mosul.
Mullah pointed out that the group’s Sharia Court has sentenced Sultan to death in the village of Azba south of Mosul.
“Professor Sultan was beheaded in the village’s main square in front of a crowd of people,” the source said, adding that ISIS hasn’t explained the reasons behind Sultan’s execution.
“Also, ISIS militants have executed Adel Mahdi Ahmed, an officer of Nineveh police force, after arresting him in his hometown of az-Zanjili west of Mosul,” the source told ARA News.
Noteworthy, ISIS has been in control of the city of Mosul since June 2014, after a sudden collapse of the Iraqi army and security forces. The group has executed hundreds of civilians after imposing its control over the city and its suburbs.
