Torture, rape, executions: Iraq to investigate reported atrocities of Mosul liberators

RAEL’S COMMENT:
How to create terrorists!

 

The Iraqi Interior Ministry said that it will investigate a report by Der Spiegel magazine, which accused the country’s elite US-backed military unit of murder, torture and rape of civilians during the operation against Islamic State terrorists in Mosul.

“The interior minister ordered investigators to conduct a clear and fair inquiry… (and) to take legal measures against those who are negligent if the investigation proves so,” the ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.

Last week, Der Spiegel published an article titled “Not Heroes, but Monsters,” by freelance Iraqi photographer and filmmaker Ali Arkady, who accompanied the Interior Ministry’s elite Emergency Response Division (ERD) unit throughout the operation against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL).

In the article, which was in stark contrast to Western reporting from Mosul, the photographer claimed that the ERD persecuted numerous civilians on “vague” suspicions of links with IS.

The piece included photos by Arkady of people hanging from the ceiling with their arms tied up behind their backs, as well as other torture scenes.

The victims were picked up during night raids, which included rape and looting, and taken to villages outside Mosul where there were no foreign journalists, he said.
