ERBIL, Kurdistan Region - At least 24 people including a top official of the Islamic State in Mosul were executed on various charges by the group on Monday. 213 others were also captured, a Kurdish official told Rudaw.
"On Monday ISIS executed 24 persons charged with refusing to fight for the group on the battlefields," Saeed Mamuzni, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (PDK) official in Mosul, told Rudaw.
"Two hundred and thirteen other civilians were also detained by ISIS in Mosul," he added. "Ahmed Abdulsalam al-Obeidi the finance minister of ISIS's Mosul Wilayat was among the executed who were charged with treachery against the group."
Mass killings and arrest by ISIS have recently increased. 11 leaders of the group, including a Sharia court judge, were imprisoned last week in Mosul on charges of “treachery” upon the order of the group's top leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
"The 11 ISIS leaders were captured on charges of treachery against the organization," Mamuzini explained.
