The Islamic State terror group has executed over 140 civilians who tried to escape jihadi-held territory in western Mosul, the Kurdish Regional Security Council has said.

In tweets posted last Friday, the KRSC said IS, also known as ISIS, ISIL or Deash, killed at least 140 civilians on April 3–4 because they tried to flee to areas of Mosul controlled by Iraqi forces.

“Some bodies were later hung on electrical poles in Eslah Zirai and Tanak neighbourhoods, others were taken to nearby frontlines,” a second tweet reads.

The killings come as Iraqi-led coalition forces have spent the last six months trying to liberate Mosul and push the militants out of what was once Iraq’s second largest city. In February, the coalition began the second phase of the offensive to liberate the western side of the city.

As IS continues to be pushed out of its territory in Iraq, the jihadis have been known to systematically kill those caught trying to flee from its territories.
