The ISIL Takfiri militants have executed two physicians in another gruesome act of terrorism in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
“Elements of the organization (ISIL) executed physicians Tareq Jassim and Adil Ayham working in the Department of Surgery of the Republican General Hospital in Mosul,” Doctor Firas al-Hamdani, the head of the hospital’s emergency section, said .
According to Hamdani, the doctors were executed for their refusal to join hospitals under the control of the terrorist group or to treat the wounded members of the Takfiri group.
“The bodies of the doctors arrived at the hospital morgue this evening after being executed by [the] ISIS (ISIL) firing squad,” he added.
The terrorist group arrested the doctors in September. The Takfiri group has threatened to punish the doctors and nurses who refuse to treat injured militants.
The ISIL terrorist group has also forced the doctors at the Mosul Health Department to work around the clock to provide medical services for the members of the Takfiri group, officials at the medical center say.
ISIL took control of the country’s second largest city in June before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.
The Takfiri militants have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations and crucifixions, against all Syrian and Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and Izadi Kurds.
The West and its regional allies, including Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, are giving financial and military support to the militants.
