3. Execution of Muslims Refusing to Swear Allegiance
In order for the Islamic State to reinforce its control over the people of the occupied portions of Iraq and northern Syria, they have in many cases made examples of other Muslims who showed (in even slight forms) disobedience to the Caliphate. A brief UN report catalogued just a handful of instances where ISIS killed their fellow Muslims publicly:
-On September 5, ISIS executed three Sunni women in Mosul. What was their “crime”? They refused to provide medical care to ISIS fighters.
– On September 9, ISIS executed a Sunni Imam in western Mosul for refusing to swear loyalty to ISIS.
– On August 2, a man from the Salah ad Din province was abducted and beheaded for refusing to swear allegiance to ISIS.
-On August 19, a female Muslim doctor south of Mosul was killed for organizing a protest to object to ISIS’ mandate that female doctors cover their faces with religious veils when treating patients
-On August 31, 19 Sunni Muslim men were executed in Saadiya for refusing to swear allegiance to ISIS.
-On July 22, a Sunni Imam in Eastern Baquba was killed for simply denouncing ISIS.
-On September 9, ISIS executed two Muslim women by shooting them in the back of the head. Their exact “crime” was not known.
