ERBIL – Militants of the Islamic State (ISIS) radical group burned three women to death in the Iraqi northwestern city of Mosul on charges of spying for the U.S.-led coalition, local activists and eyewitnesses reported on Saturday.
The three women were arrested on Friday, and after interrogations ISIS accused them of having leaked security information to the western coalition and its allies in Iraq.
The ISIS-led Sharia Court issued a statement accusing the three women of spying for what it called ‘crusader coalition’, in reference to the U.S.-led international coalition that has been bombing ISIS’s positions across Syria and Iraq for nearly two years.
The Sharia Court ordered the immediate execution of the three women by burning them to death in public.
“The brutal execution took place in front of dozens of people in central Mosul, including family members who were forced to attend the execution,” a local media activist told ARA News. “The three women were burned to death.”
More People Executed On Charges of Spying
This is not the first time that ISIS executes civilians on charges of ‘spying’.
On Thursday, ISIS militants beheaded three media activists in Syria’s northern city of Manbij after accusing them of ‘spying for crusaders’.
The three activists Ahmed al-Abdullah, Ibrahim Muhammad and Sarai al-Halabi were beheaded in public in central Manbij.
Earlier on Wednesday, the extremist group executed a Syrian woman in Raqqa on similar charges.
