The Islamic State (IS) has recently executed a number of civilians across its territories in Northern Iraq, including a young Kurdish man in Mosul for allegedly cooperating with Kurdish Peshmerga forces against the jihadist group.
According to the Iraqi news agencies, IS militants executed a 17-years-old Kurdish man in a military base in their Northern Iraqi stronghold of Mosul.
Sources revealed that the victim was from the predominantly Shabak village of Bajrbog near Bashiq district, and he was abducted by IS some 20 days ago.
Since the northern province of Nineveh has fallen into the hands of IS in June 2014, the extremist group is conducting mass killings and arbitrary punishments against locals to spread fear in the area and, as a result, leave the civilians with no choice but obedience.
Elsewhere in Salahaddin province, nearly 17 youths received the death penalty by IS as they had allegedly killed an IS member, raised an Iraqi flag on a telecommunication tower in Shirqat district and cooperated with the Iraqi government against IS.
Local sources told to the Iraqi media that the insurgents hung the corpses from lamp posts after the executions.
