The twisted jihadis have carried out some of their most gruesome killings yet, including executing four football players in front of a crowd of children and butchering 25 civilians by dissolving them alive in acid.
Senior military sources said the spate of horrific murders was a sign that the Islamist fanatics are growing increasingly desperate as they face all-out military defeat.
A senior Iraqi army officer revealed details of the latest sickening war crimes, which involved ISIS maniacs rounding up 23 innocent teenagers in the city of Mosul and beheading them in front of baying crowds.
Brigadier-General Abdul-Karim Sabawi said: “ISIS arrested 23 young men from Nimrod and al-Salamiya and beheaded them.
“The deceased were accused of collaboration with the security forces and providing them with important information about the outfit’s movement in Nimrod.
“This heinous crime comes after preparations to liberate Mosul from ISIS control is almost completed.”
ISIS has significantly ramped up executions for spying in recent weeks as desperate jihadis go to ever more crazed lengths to stem the huge losses they are suffering.
They are believed to have executed more than 100 people for espionage this week alone, with the vast majority of the killings coming in the form of public beheadings.
Huge efforts are also under way to stop desperate civilians from fleeing their so-called caliphate, resulting in the execution of a two-year-old girl who was burned alongside her family when they were caught moving villages within ISIS territory. Source
