MOSUL, IRAQ – Credible reports suggest that the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL/Da’esh) has been forcing tens of thousands of people from their homes in sub-districts around Mosul, including nearly 8,000 families the group abducted, since the operations to restore Iraqi Government control over Mosul began on 17 October, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) said today.

“ISIL fighters are allegedly killing civilians who refuse to comply with ISIL’s instructions or who previously belonged to the Iraqi Security Forces, including 232 civilians who were shot to death last Wednesday,” Ravina Shamdasani, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, told reporters in Geneva.

She said that reports indicate at least 5,370 families were abducted by ISIL from Shura sub-district, another 160 families from al-Qayyarah sub-district, 150 families from Hamam al-Alil sub-district and 2,210 families from Nimrud sub-district of al-Hamdaniya district.

Forced out by gunpoint, or killed if they resist, these people are reportedly being moved to strategic places where ISIL fighters are located, she said noting that, according to information received, 60,000 persons are currently residing in Hamam al-Alil, an ISIL stronghold with a previous population of 23,000.

Of the 232 civilians reportedly shot to death on Wednesday, 190 were former ISF personnel, she said. They were killed at the al-Ghazlani military base in Mosul. The other 42 civilians were reportedly shot in the head at the al-Izza military base after they refused to join ISIL, Ms. Shamdasani added.

          Lloyd-that anonymous creep is always trolling around with her bullshit opinion. Obummer and Killary own this war. We had it won (thanks to our vets) and they gave it to the killers.
