The battle in the middle east continues to cause chaos and death as ISIS is under attack in Mosul.  Civilians are getting the worst of it as they are being targeted by ISIS.

Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) is stockpiling mustard gas, using increasingly brutal tactics against civilians in the Iraqi city of Mosul, while resorting to the use of child soldiers as its ranks are being depleted by the coalition’s onslaught.

“On Tuesday, ISIL reportedly shot and killed 40 civilians in Mosul city after accusing them of ‘treason and collaboration’ with the Iraqi Security Forces (ISF). The victims were dressed in orange clothes marked in red with the words: ‘traitors and agents of the ISF’. Their bodies were then hung on electrical poles in several areas in Mosul city,” said the latest briefing from the UN Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights (OHCHR), published on Friday.

Later through the week, more than 20 other men were shot dead in three separate executions, as a result of being found with SIM cards, and displayed in public with notes saying “used cell phones to leak information to the ISF.”

The UN also verified a video posted on Wednesday showing children, apparently aged between 10 and 14, executing civilians.
