Islamic State burn 9 in Kirkuk, including kids, for escaping stronghold

Final moments: The flames race through the fuel towards the men and horrifically burn them to death


Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Islamic State militants have burned to death nine civilians, including children, for attempting to escape the group’s strongholds southwest of the province.

Alsumaria News quoted a security source saying the extremist group burned to death nine civilians from the IS-held town of Hawija over charges of “abandoning the land of the Caliphate’, a common charge poised against people fleeing the group’s areas of control.

“Daesh (IS) arrested the civilians at a road between al-Riyadh and Hamreen Mountains,” said the source. “They burned them before of other civilians on their way to al-Alam,” said the source, referring to a region in neighboring Salahuddin province.

Since Islamic State took over large parts of Iraq in 2014 to proclaim an “Islamic Caliphate”, it held a handful of areas in southwestern Kirkuk, where civilians have been subjected to extreme religious governance, brutal tortures and executions. IS’s reign forced thousands of civilians to flee to central Kirkuk.

Islamic State militants have reportedly tortured and enslaved civilians at areas under their control in Iraq for violating their religious rules, and executed many for either acting as informants for security services or attempting to escape “the land of the Caliphate” as the common charge reads. Many of the brutal executions were filmed and posted on IS’s social media platforms.

There has not been yet an official campaign to liberate Kirkuk, but it is expected that the government will move to clear Islamic State pockets across Iraq after finishing with its campaign to expel the group from neighboring Mosul, the group’s largest bastion in Iraq.

  1. Iraq must be liberated from Zionist-US-Kurdish terrorists as soon as possible. Jews must be exterminated for the death and destruction they committed in Iraq and Syria in particular.

    • James Bond, HA! You have a Mohammad in at least 1 of your 4 or more names. Your caliphate can never win Mo once outside of the middle-east, parts of Africa and the Asian islands. Your awful people will be run out of Europe or assimilate to western culture. I don’t understand why you want a replay of the Crusades, in which your people did not do well. Muslims pro-create like vermin. They rape those who would not have them, or just hump anything like a dog does.

  2. Iraq must be liberated from Zionist-US-Kurdish terrorists as soon as possible. Jews must be
    exterminated for crimes against humanity in Iraq, Syria, and other places in the world.

  3. Don’t worry the West will allow and even reward these murderers by allowing to return or relocate to Europe or the US. The UK is talking about allowing returning fighters to bring along their Sex Slaves and multiple wives. So work another 10-15 hours a week so you can support these cockroaches!

  4. And yet Liberal/Progressives wish to allow UNVETTED (so called Refugees) iSLAMists to live amongst them! Yup, I agree Liberalism is a total mental disorder!
