16 Daesh militants killed in booty dispute in Mosul

More than a dozen Takfiri Daesh militants have been killed in a dispute over the distribution of property stolen during attacks in Iraq’s embattled northern city of Mosul.

The Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) spokesman in Mosul, Saeed Mamouzini, told Arabic-language al-Sumaria satellite television network on Tuesday that members of al-Hajj Nasser al-Mawla and Abu Mus’ab al-Mosuli terrorist groups turned on each other following disagreement over property and money in the Baaj district of militant-held Mosul, situated some 400 kilometers (248 miles) northwest of the capital, Baghdad.

Mamouzini said the terrorists then exchanged heavy gunfire, resulting in the death of eight militants from each side.

The KDP official added that Daesh extremists also stoned five women to death in the Ghazlani military base, which lies near Mosul, on Tuesday after the victims refused to agree to the militants’ orders and their austere dress code.

Meanwhile, fighters from pro-government Popular Mobilization units have killed a Daesh militant commander, identified as Abu Adnan, on the outskirts of the oil-rich city of Baiji, located some 210 kilometers (130 miles) north of Baghdad.

Sadeq al-Hussaini, a member of the Diyala provincial council, said the slain Daesh commander was trying to escape along with an unspecified number of his comrades, when a sniper shot him dead.

Separately, Commander of the Iraqi Federal Police Forces Lieutenant General Raed Shaker Jawdat said security forces have killed 11 Daesh Takfiris during a series of operations east of Anbar’s provincial capital city of Ramadi.

Gruesome violence has plagued the northern and western parts of Iraq ever since Daesh Takfiris launched an offensive there in June 2014, and took control of swathes of Iraqi territory.

The militants have been committing heinous crimes against all ethnic and religious groups in Iraq, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians and others.
