ERBIL, Kurdistan Region—More than 100 Islamic State (ISIS) militants fled Mosul on Sunday, said an official, ahead of  Iraqi and Kurdish military plans to liberate the city.

“There are 102 ISIS militants who escaped from Mosul yesterday, including seven commanders,” Saeed Mamuzini told Rudaw English, believing that some of them went into Syria.

Mamuzini was head of the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) office in Mosul before the city fell to ISIS in 2014.

He added that 36 ISIS militants were executed today on Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s orders.

A coalition of Iraqi and Kurdish Peshmerga forces are preparing for a major offensive against ISIS in Mosul in the coming months.

Iraqi defense officials anticipate the offensive to happen in the first half of this year.

Mamuzini said that Mosul is under a state of alert. “There is no money, the financial situation is at zero. ISIS morale is at an all time low. People are scared, ISIS militants too.”

Two Iraqi army brigades were recently relocated to Makhmour, southeast of Mosul where they have formed a joint operations command with the Peshmerga.

Around 750 Christians also completed a training course with the Peshmerga last week to participate in the forthcoming offensive.

Keep going Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. We don't like to waste bullets on you bastard ISIL. You will be chopped up by YPG and those who want to revenge the deaths of their loved ones. An A-10 Warthog or an Apache will kill you all in the desert. If you evil bastards don't know what a Warthog is then see the films "Silence of the Lambs" and "Hannibal Lector." Eaten by pigs is what will happen to you.

Death awaits those ISIS members who fled Mosul for ISIS will even kill them for fleeing.

One good thing is that so may perverts that are turned on by snuff-pr0n joined the army of King Pervert so no one has to feel bad about killing them. Their bodies should be left to rot as dung on the ground to be eaten by rats, insects and flies.
