The Islamic State militants execute about 50 people in Mosul daily on an average, an Iraqi MP has said, local media reported.
MP Nayef al-Shammari, member of the security and defense committee in the Parliament, told Iraqinews.com that Isis executions are rampant in Mosul and are done on a daily basis.
"An average of 50 people are executed by ISIS daily. We hope that the operation to liberate Nineveh will be fast. the province bleeds every day," the Iraqi MP said.
Isis overran the Iraqi city of Mosul on 10 June, 2014, following which Isis leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi declared the Islamic State caliphate on 29 June.
Since then, hundreds of people have been executed by Isis in gruesome ways, including beheading, stoning, crucifixion and throwing victims from high towers.
Isis executes individuals on charges ranging from not supporting the group to claims of witchcraft and homosexuality.
