The Islamic State executed six people in Mosul in two days, according to security sources and eyewitnesses. The victims, including three women — two of whom were doctors — were shot.

The Islamic State is conducting an operation of abducting and killing all of the people that it suspects of collaborating with the Baghdad-based Iraqi government.

One eyewitness told AFP that the Islamic State (formerly known as ISIS, the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria) raided two houses of female doctors who had refused to treat wounded fighters of the Islamic State. They also raided the house of a losing candidate for the parliamentary elections who had lost. Her name was Zaina Nouri Mullah Abdallah el-Ansi. The organization shot the victims dead in front of their houses and took the bodies to the forensic institute. It refuses to give the bodies over to the families for burial, something confirmed by eyewitnesses and the forensic institute.  

Two weeks ago the organization executed a doctor who refused to wear a himar (a type of veil) which they obligated all the female staff in the hospital wear.

On Friday night September 5, a convoy of armored cars and Humvees besieged the house of the Sheik Maisar Farman el-Waka, one of the leading figures of the el-Jabour tribe in the area of al-Kiara.

The sources said that el-Waka, another candidate that lost in the last elections, was lead from his house, together with his two brothers where they were executed in the street in the village of al-Houd (60km south of Mosul). The people of the organization then blew up the el-Waka's house (which he shared with his brothers) and burned all their cars before retreating from the area. 

The organization also abducted 50 young people from a Sunni village near Al-Hawaija west of Kirkuk after young people in this area burned an Islamic State flag.
