Daesh Takfiri terrorists have executed a dozen people by throwing them from a towering building in the Iraqi northern province of Nineveh.
The terror group killed 12 civilians in the center of the militant-held city of Mosul, the Arabic-language news website al-Sumaria reported on Saturday.
Daesh used the insurance company building, the tallest building in the city, located in Dawasa area, to carry out the execution.
This is not the first time Daesh Takfiris execute people by throwing them from tall buildings over various charges. For instance, on August 23, they killed nine people and on June 3, they claimed the lives of three more in Mosul by throwing them from the same building.
The terror group, which has been wreaking havoc in Iraq since June 2014, has recently been losing more ground to the country’s army forces.
Defense Minister Khaled al-Obeidi said in a press conference earlier in the day that the terrorists used to control nearly 40 percent of Iraqi soil but the army has managed to retake most of it and reduced their control to about 17 percent.
The northern and western parts of Iraq have been plagued by gruesome violence ever since Daesh mounted an offensive, which followed committing vicious crimes against all ethnic and religious communities in Iraq, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians.
The Iraqi army together with fighters from the Popular Mobilization units has been engaged in operations to liberate the militant-held regions.
