ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - At least 11 Islamic State leaders have been jailed in Mosul on charges of “treachery” upon the order of the group's top leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a Kurdish official in Mosul, told Rudaw.

"The 11 ISIS leaders were captured on charges of treachery against the organization," Saeed Mamuzini, media officer of the Kurdistan Democratic Party from Mosul, told Rudaw.

He added that an ISIS Sharia court judge is among the captured.

Meanwhile, the Iraqi Defense Ministry said on Wednesday that "ISIS has imposed curfews in Mosul following the eruption of clashes between left side (east) residents of the city and the ISIS police."

The ministry said in the statement "In three different areas on the left side of Mosul, people have started uprising against ISIS."

They have killed more than 200 people like this, for treachery, so far as I could count. Before you blame Sunni Arabs for siding with ISIS, think again. The initial reaction may have been welcoming but no one other than supreme fanatics welcome ISIS. These people risk their lives under captivity, perhaps torture and torture of their family members. Do not disrespect their sacrifice by wholesale insult of Sunni Arabs, or any other group, for supporting ISIS.

Its their own fault for letting Isis came to Iraq. Maliki was bad but Isis are even badder. They supported Isis because they thought Isis bring Revolution to Iraq and take maliki out from Government..Thats why the sunni part of Iraqi army had not will to help Maliki. The Sunni revolutionist had big army and they could have been destroying Isis in heartbeat but no.... They led the cancer to spread.. Now Shia muslims and kurdish have responsible to take the Isis out from sunni areas and thousand of soldier have died because of trying save the sunni areas from Isis but people are too focus on sectariasm side..
