Erbil – Islamic State (ISIS) extremists on Thursday beheaded seven civilians in the city of Mosul, after accusing them of spying for the Iraqi Army.
Local sources told ARA News that the ISIS-led Islamic Police, also known as Diwan al-Hisba, arrested seven men earlier on Wednesday. The men were accused of leaking information about the group’s deployments in Mosul city.
An ISIS-controlled Sharia court said in a statement that the suspects had communicated with Iraqi government officials. The court determined that those communications represented the men’s conscious abandonment of Islam.
“The arrested men were charged with treason, apostasy and spying for hostile troops,” local media activist Abdullah al-Malla told ARA News. “They were beheaded in front of hundreds of people in central Mosul on Thursday.”
