ISIS /ISIL crushes rebellion plot in Mosul: ISIL executed 58 people suspected of taking part in the plot

ISIS has crushed a rebellion plot in Mosul led by one of its commanders who aimed to switch sides and help deliver the city to Iraqi forces, Reuters news agency reports.



ISIL executed 58 people suspected of taking part in the plot after it was uncovered last week. Residents, who spoke to Reuters from some of the few locations in Mosul that have phone services, said the plotters were killed by drowning and their bodies were buried in a mass grave in a wasteland on the outskirts of the city.

Among them was a local aide of ISIL leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who led the plotters, according to matching accounts given by five residents, by Hisham al-Hashimi, an expert on ISIL affairs who advises the government in Baghdad, and by Colonel Ahmed al-Taie, a military intelligence officer.

Reuters did not name the plot leader to protect his family, nor did it publish the identities of those inside the city who spoke about the plot for their safety.

The aim of the plotters was to undermine ISIL's defence of Mosul in the upcoming fight, expected to be the biggest battle in Iraq since the 2003 US-led invasion.

Iraqi officials say a massive ground assault could begin this month, backed by US air power, Kurdish security forces and Shia and Sunni irregular units.

The United Nations says the operation could create the biggest humanitarian crisis in the world, in a worst case scenario uprooting up to one million people...............http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2016/10/report-isil-crushes-rebellion-plot-mosul-161014142437833.html
