ERBIL – Radical group of the Islamic State (ISIS) executed on Thursday three Kurdish men in the city of Mosul, northern Iraq, on charges of “spying” for the Kurdish forces, local sources reported. 

The victims were arrested earlier this week in Mosul city of Nineveh province.

After three days of interrogations by jihadis, the ISIS-led Sharia Court convicted them of spying for the Kurdish Peshmerga forces of Iraqi Kurdistan against the ISIS self-declared Caliphate. 

ISIS militants publicly beheaded the three young men in the Nabi Younis neighborhood of Mosul on Thursday evening, according to a local media activist and eyewitnesses, who spoke to ARA News on condition of anonymity.

The victims were accused of leaking security information about ISIS movements to the Kurdistan’s Peshmerga army. 

The extremist group has used to execute anyone suspected to have relations either with the U.S.-led coalition forces, Iraqi army or the Kurdish Peshmerga forces, especially after dozens of ISIS insurgents and prominent jihadi leaders have been killed in northwestern Iraq. 

Over the last two years, hundreds of people have been arrested and executed on similar charges in the ISIS-held territories in Iraq and Syria, including dozens of media activists.
