Beheadings, Whippings, & Terror: Another Month Of Brutality In IS-Controlled Mosul

September was yet another long month of murder, terror, and brutality for residents of Islamic State (IS)-controlled Mosul.

IS militants in the northern Iraqi city carried out the execution-style killings of 455 people for the usual “crimes” — spying, apostasy, blasphemy, fornication, and mocking the “caliphate.”

The killings are documented in a report released on October 24 by Mosul Eye, the pseudonym of an Iraqi historian who has been documenting IS’s activities in Mosul since the militants overran the city in June 2014.
