ISIS reportedly used welding torches to execute six young men in Mosul, in the terror group’s latest sadistic public show.
The boys were suspected of belonging to a resistance group — a rising concern in the ISIS-held caliphate.
“The youths were first handcuffed and then a welding machine and a welding rod was used to kill them. The execution took place in Mosul in front of a large gathering,” an unnamed source told Iraqi News.
Resistance groups have been causing minor disturbances in ISIS-held areas, mostly spray-painting rebellious graffiti on city walls.
It’s why ISIS is appearing desperate to show its authority, and likely the reason behind the latest gruesome public executions.
“This came in order to create a state of fear and panic among the people,” the source told Iraqi News.
