Dhi Qar ( Dhi Qar Criminal Court has sentenced two militants to death over killing and kidnapping charges, a security source was quoted saying on Sunday.

Speaking to Mawazin News website, the source said “The criminal court in Dhi Qar sentenced two militants from Ramadi to death over involvement in more than 10 crimes of kidnapping and killing citizens.”

The convicts, according to the source, confessed to committing the crimes, as part of orders by the militant group of al-Qaeda.

Earlier today, the same court sentenced a man to death six times over his involvement in mass killings and kidnappings in the capital Baghdad.

Last week, The Iraqi Justice Ministry has announced carrying out death sentences against seven convicts over involvement in terrorism.

Many Islamic State members were detained during liberation battles that freed cities, which were recaptured by the militant group in 2014.

In December, the Iraqi Prime Minister Haidar al-Abadi announced gaining control on all the territories that were captured by Islamic State, since 2014. However, Security reports indicate that the militant group still poses threat against stability in the country. The group still has dormant cells, through which it carries out attacks, across Iraq like it used to do before 2014.
