Islamic State’s second executioner killed in month, southwestern Kirkuk

Islamic State execute 4 members on charges of cowardice west of Mosul

Kirkuk (IraqiNews.com) Islamic State’s second executioner was killed this month in southwest of Kirkuk, a senior paramilitary official said on Friday.

“An IS executioner was killed near his house by unknown gunmen at the outskirts of Hawija, Kirkuk, marking the second accident of its kind in one month,” Jabbar al-Maamouri, of al-Hashd al-Shaabi (Popular Mobilization Forces) told AlSumaria News on Friday.

“The significant rise in murder of IS militants and leaders indicate people’s rejection against the group’s crimes,” Maamouri added.

The group’s executioner is one tasked with beheading using sword.

Earlier on the day, the group reportedly executed a senior leader, known as Abu Qatada al-Muhajir, for attempting to flee the town.

Hawija and other neighboring regions, west of Kirkuk, have been held by IS since mid-2014, when the group emerged to proclaim an Islamic “caliphate” in Iraq and Syria. The group executed dozens of civilians and security members there, forcing thousands to flee homes.

Further reinforcements from the Federal Police were sent earlier this month from Baghdad to the town, as the military command declared, late August, the end of operations in Tal Afar, the militants’ last haven west of Nineveh, and the approach of the launch of offensives for Hawija.

Spokesperson of the Iraqi Joint Operations Command Yehia Rasool said, last week, there were 2000 IS militants inside Hawija.
