Mosul: A video showed Iraqi troops, while recapturing the strategically important Mosul city in Iraq from Islamic States hold, allegedly throwing ISIS terrorists off the ledge and capturing the act in camera on Thursday.

According to a Daily Mail report, while executing the ISIS terrorists, men in Iraqi military uniform were seen throwing them off and sprayed bullets. The entire act was shot by one of the military official.

The video shows a traumatised man, allegedly an ISIS terrorist, was beaten by rifle wielding troops before dragging him to the cliff from where he was thrown.

The video also showed that the troops fired shots at motionless body which was earlier thrown by the troops.

The video posted by Mosul Eye blog on there social media account comes in days after a US-backed coalition of Iraqi forces announced it had freed Mosul, the city in which ISIS proclaimed its caliphate in 2014.

Apparently, ISIS terrorists had used the same technique to execute people guilty of homosexuality, where they threw same-sex people from high rise buildings.

Iraqi government, who praised the troops for the Mosul victory on Monday, vowed to bring the men shown in the video, allegedly Iraqi military, into justice.

Iraq’s interior ministry in its official statement said “if the video - purportedly filmed in recently-liberated Mosul - was genuine then the soldiers involved will be brought to justice”.

Meanwhile, human rights groups reported that some troops of Iraqi government are guilty of torture and execution during the war against ISIS.

However, the major part of the Mosul city is recaptured, the battle between troops and terrorists is still underway inside the Old City, with an unknown number of ISIS militants hiding.

Location: Iraq, Ninawa, Mosul
