ISIS has executed 25 civilians by throwing them in a basin of nitric acid, sources report, according to The Christian Post.
The 25 civilians were accused of spying on the terrorist group. Their execution is one in a long list of recent ISIS atrocities.
Recently, ISIS militants burned down the home of a Christian family. A young girl, dying from burns in her mother’s arms, told her mother to “forgive them.”
In addition, ISIS executed 11 citizens of Mosul, an Iraqi town controlled by the terrorist group, on charges of using mobile phones. ISIS also executed 250 women for refusing to marry ISIS militants.
The killing continues with this latest execution.
According to IraqiNews.com, an anonymous source stated, "ISIS terrorist members executed 25 persons in Mosul on charges of spying and collaborating with Iraqi security forces. ISIS put the citizens in a large tub containing nitric acid inside one of its headquarters."
Nitric acid is a mineral acid which has corrosive properties and is very dangerous if it comes into contact with the human body.
The militants reportedly tied the victims together with a rope and lowered them into the tub “till the victims’ organs dissolved.”
A mass grave site of ISIS’ victims was found recently in Syria, about 30 miles from the city of Raqqa, which had been under ISIS’ control until recently.
Although the terrorist organization remains a threat in the Middle East, there are reports that the area they control is shrinking.
