ISIL executes 13 Iraqi teens for watching soccer game

The ISIL militants caught the ill-fated youths in the city of Mosul, located some 400 kilometers (248 miles) north of the capital, Baghdad, last week, the English-language daily newspaper New York Post reported.

The Takfiris later dragged the youths to a big sports arena in the Yarmouk neighborhood of the city, and read out a statement asserting that the teenage boys had committed a folly by watching ‘something Western and forbidden.’

A firing squad then used machine guns to shoot the teens dead.

The bodies reportedly remained lying in the open, and their parents were unable to withdraw them for fear of murder by the ISIL terrorists.

The ISIL started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014. The heavily-armed militants took control of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The terrorists have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against all Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.

The Iraqi army, backed by pro-government tribes, Shia volunteers and Kurdish Peshmerga forces, has so far managed to make significant gains in the fight against the terrorists.
