Islamic State (ISIS) jihadists executed an Iraqi man on Thursday by drowning him in disinfectant detergent. The extremist group released a video depicting the brutal execution, claiming that the victim was spying for the Iraqi government.
The graphic video was reportedly shot in Mosul where the man resided. While drowning their victim, ISIS broadcast a call which was purportedly between the unfortunate man and an Iraqi radio station.
“This infidel has been supporting the Iraqi regime’s campaign to take Mosul,” one of the militants said in an audio overlay, adding that the city needs to be cleansed with Dettol-brand detergent.
According to Raafat al-Zarari, the head of Nineveh Media Centre, the execution was another attempt by ISIS to terrify the people of Mosul into submission.
“The group [perceives] anyone with suspicious activities as a spy for rival forces,” al-Zarari told ARA News. “These brutal executions will continue until ISIS is eliminated completely in Mosul.”
Thursday’s execution comes as US-backed Iraqi forces started the second phase of the battle for Mosul. The second phase aims to push the ISIS militants out of the city center and across the Tigris River.
On October 17, 2016, the Iraqi Army and the Kurdish Peshmerga launched a major operation to liberate Mosul city and its surroundings from the Islamic State.
