REIGN OF TERROR: ISIS Executes Hundreds of Men, Children before Mosul Fight
Fearing an uprising to coincide with the invasion of Iraqi, Iranian, Kurdish and American forces, the Islamic State attempts to instill utter terror of resistance in the people under its dominion.

The Islamic State (ISIS) has engaged in a series of mass executions in recent days, killing hundreds of men and children in preparation for the siege of Mosul. ISIS is also pressing tens of thousands of innocents into service as human shields.
The executions have both a tactical and a strategic purpose. Tactically, ISIS executes those who are likely to be sources of uprisings that could support the offensive led by the Iraqi government, with its Iranian, Kurdish, and American allies. 190 former members of Iraqi security services were put to death in part so that they could not be rescued and turned into fighters. By a similar token, ISIS has been going through surrounding towns and murdering both former members of the military or police, such as 45 men captured at a military base near Kirkuk, and also probable resistance fighters. ISIS claims to have discovered at least one actual plot to revolt against them under cover of Baghdad’s offensive thrust, executing 58 men associated with that plot. In Mosul itself, 22 were electrocuted for alleged collaboration with Peshmerga forces. These kinds of executions are meant to cut down on the number of additional troubles that could pop up once the main fight for Mosul begins.
There is also a strategic purpose, which we can see from ISIS’s propaganda around these killings. Here they released photos as well as a statement about their execution and beheading of two members of the “sahwat,” or “Awakening,” a movement of tribal fighters that assisted the United States military in overcoming ISIS’s predecessor organization, al Qaeda in Iraq.
Serving both a tactical and strategic purpose, ISIS has executed a number of its own fighters who have attempted to flee or refused to stand their post. These executions, by burning alive in a trench filled with oil, are meant to prevent further defections or cowardice in the face of their enemies. Executions of this kind convey that to flee is to suffer a worse and more shameful death than would be risked by standing to fight. The hideousness of the mode of execution ensures the transmission of the message.
ISIS has resorted to these hideous modes of execution several times recently. In addition to the beheading and the burning alive, ISIS recently thrust the children of families determined to be enemies into an industrial dough-mixer. According to this witness’ testimony (video at link), some 250 children were put to death in this way.
