ISIS execute seven children to punish their fleeing families and use their own relatives as human shields in Mosul

Desperate ISIS fanatics have executed seven children to punish families fleeing Mosul and have even used their own relatives as human shields as Iraqi forces move in, it has emerged.

Government troops are pushing to retake the remaining territory held by the terror group in the city after the country’s leader celebrated ‘victory’ over the jihadists.

There are reports that some fanatics have resorted to leaping into the Tigris river in a bid to escape with total defeat looming.
