ISIS executes three Iraq tribal leaders in Mosul
The tribal leaders were accused of plotting rebellion against the extremist group
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has executed three Iraqi tribal leaders outside a government building in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights reported on Friday.
The ministry said the three leaders were from al-Jabour tribe and were executed for allegedly plotting a rebellion against the terrorist groups that controls the city.
The extremist group was also reported to have burnt Islamic text books assigned by Iraq's ministry of education.
Last week, the ministry said ISIS militants in Mosul have shut down family planning departments at public hospitals in order to prevent women from using contraceptive pills.
ISIS has also ordered hospital administrators to direct the use of medicine and medical equipment to their wounded members after losses suffered in recent battles, the ministry added.
According to the ministry, ISIS militants recently lashed a female doctor in the courtyard of one hospital because she wasn't wearing the niqab, a veil covering most of the face.
In recent months, former U.N. human rights chief Navi Pillay condemned "appalling, widespread" crimes being committed by ISIS forces in Iraq, including killings, slavery, sexual crimes and targeting people on ethnic or religious grounds.
