The Islamic State (IS) is now selling the properties left by Christians in Mosul, attempting to cope with its financial crisis.
After the US-led coalition started targeting IS financial sources, including oil fields and banks, the jihadist group is facing new challenges to fund its military and administrative activities inside its territories.
According to the information obtained by BasNews, IS jihadists have lately put Christian’s properties on sale across several western neighbourhoods of Mosul, in Northern Iraq.
International news agencies revealed that 400 houses, 19 commercial buildings and 167 shops have so far been sold by the jihadist group.
After crossing the Syrian border into Iraq in June 2014 and taking control of Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul, IS insurgents forced non-Muslim residents of the city either to leave or pay the extremist group for s tax for living inside their territories.
However, hundreds of Christians and Yazidis were executed without having any other choice.
