Cigarette sellers executed by ISIS in Iraq’s Mosul

AhlulBayt News Agency - Extremists of the ISIS on Wednesday executed six men in the city of Mosul in Iraq’s northwestern Nineveh province for selling cigarettes, activists and eyewitnesses reported.

Smoking or selling cigarettes has been for years banned under the rule of the ISIS self-declared Caliphate in areas under the group’s control in Iraq and Syria. Those who violate ISIS regulations are exposed to brutal punishment, mostly public execution.

“The ISIS-led Islamic Police of Hisba arrested six men in Mosul on charges of selling cigarettes. They were then referred to the Sharia Court which ordered their immediate execution on Wednesday on charges of violating the rules imposed by their alleged Caliphate,” media activist Abdullah al-Malla reported in Mosul.

The six men were publicly executed by firing squad in the Bursa square in central Mosul, said eyewitnesses.

“Hundreds of people witnessed the brutal execution. The victim’s corpses were then moved to the al-Tib al-Adli hospital in Mosul,” the source reported.
