(Muslim Press) According to Sputnik News, IS (also known as ISIS and ISIL) fighters used metal wire to stitch the four victims' mouths shut on Tuesday in the group's Iraqi stronghold of Mosul because they were all involved in a conversation discussing the successes of the Iraqi Army in its offensive against IS.
"Four of our residents were discussing the success of the army in a casual conversation about politics, when another man suddenly joined in. He casually discussed with them the defeat of ISIS and offensive operations in Nineveh," a Mosul resident, who chose to remain nameless due to fear of retaliation from IS, told Sputnik International. "Later, all four people were caught. Right where they were standing, their mouths were sewn up with metal wire."
