Daesh militants executed 80 people, including police, military people and those disagreeing with the group’s ideology near the Iraqi city of Mosul, according to local media.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Islamic State (ISIL, or Daesh) militants have fatally shot at least 80 people, including police officers, near the Iraqi city of Mosul, local media reported Sunday.

"Daesh militants executed 80 people, including police, military [people] and those disagreeing with the group’s ideology, shooting them at the Ghazlani military camp in the central part of the Nineveh province," a local source told the Alsumaria television channel.

According to the source, the terrorists of the group outlawed in Russia and in many other countries accused the dead of espionage and cooperation with the Iraqi authorities.

The Islamic State seized the northern Iraqi city of 2.5 million in June 2014. Mosul has since become the de facto Iraqi capital of the terrorist group.
