ISIS executed nine of its own members by throwing them into trenches of hot oil and burning them to death after they tried to flee the battle raging around Mosul.
The city is the terror group’s last major stronghold in Iraq and last week government forces backed by the U.S. launched an offensive to liberate the area.
So far around 90 villages and towns under ISIS control have been freed in the past week and in some parts, coalition forces are just three miles from the centre of Mosul.
