Many Civilians Killed in Fleeing IS in Mosul; Dozens Lay on IS-Held Street Near Frontline

The bodies of dozens of Iraqi civilians killed in the past two days while fleeing an Islamic State-held neighborhood in Mosul lay on the street close to the frontline with Iraqi armed forces, the Reuters website reports today (June 4, 2017).

The dead bodies included men, women, and children.

Bags in which they had carried their belongings were strewn around the road leading out of the Zanjili district, still in the hands of the Islamic State in Mosul.

"Over the past two days, ISIS [Islamic State of Iraq and Syria] has been shooting people escaping this area," said Dave Eubank from the Free Burma Rangers Relief Association.
