Islamic State scum are now executing members of their own families in fear of the information they may give the Iraqi army, the government revealed on Tuesday.
Alsumaria News quoted the source confirming IS began executing the families of its members in the town of Tal Afar, to the west of Mosul. They say the slaughtering is based on a fatwa issued by retreating ISIS leaders.
‘The fatwa (an Islamic religious edict) was made because ISIS commanders fear that families of more junior fighters would report them as liberating soldiers closed in,’ the source said on Tuesday.
The security forces now have 10,000 soldiers, with enhanced military capabilities, ready to move in on Tal Afar and retake the regions of Nineveh.
The Iraqi government has already declared victory over the Islamic State in Mosul.
An Iraqi commander said that Tal Afar and a few surrounding areas are the only ones remaining under IS control.
These areas are about to be targeted by Iraqi forces to put an end to the caliphate declared from Mosul in 2014
Authorities are now taking measures to isolate IS fighters families from genuine refugees displaced by the war against the group.
Plans are being made to shelter those families at separate camps for rehabilitation.
