Baghdad: Members of the ISIL Takfiri terrorist group have reportedly detained more than 100 civilians in Iraq’s beleaguered Northern Province of Nineveh, as they continue committing crimes in the areas under their control.
The Spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Mosul, Saeed Mamouzini, told Arabic-language al-Sumaria satellite television network on Saturday that ISIL Takfiris arrested 127 residents of the terrorist-held city, located some 400 kilometers north of the capital, Baghdad, on charges of using mobile phones.
Mamouzini added that ISIL is terrified of a public uprising against its rule in Mosul, and strictly monitors the movements of the city dwellers.
Meanwhile, ISIL terrorists have blown up nearly two dozen houses belonging to Christian residents in Nineveh Province.
Mamouzini said ISIL terrorists have recently demolished 21 Christian houses in the ancient Assyrian city of Bakhdida, located about 32 kilometers southeast of Mosul.
He added that the terrorists have so far blown up hundreds of houses owned by members of various ethnic and religious communities across Nineveh Province.
