The Daesh Takfiri terrorists have reportedly executed nearly a dozen civilians in Iraq’s beleaguered northern province of Nineveh.

The spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Mosul, Saeed Mamouzini, told Arabic-language Iraqi Media News Agency that the terrorists killed 11 residents of the militant-held city on charges of using mobile phones.

Mamouzini added that the victims came from the Tahrir neighborhood of Mosul, and Daesh executed the victims by firing squad in a militant base.

Iraqi officials and local residents say Daesh is terrified of a public uprising against its rule in Mosul, and strictly monitors the movements of the people in the city.

The development came only a few days after Daesh terrorists burned the entire five members of an Iraqi family alive after accusing them of trying to escape terrorist-held territories.

The victims, including three children, were set on fire in public in the Riyadh neighborhood of Kirkuk City on May 10.

United Nations Special Representative for Iraq and Head of the United Nations Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI) Jan Kubis told the UN Security Council on May 7 that more than 50 mass graves have been found in various parts of Iraq after the areas were liberated from Daesh.

Late April, Daesh members executed 250 women in Mosul after the victims did not accept a proposal to temporarily marry the militants.
