ERBIL – The radical group of Islamic State (ISIS) has executed two Iraqi lawyers in the city of Mosul in the northern province of Nineveh, activists reported on Saturday.
Nawal Sabbagh and Huda al-Jabouri were executed after spending three months in ISIS detention in Mosul.
“The victims were accused of violating the regulations of the Islamic Sharia after practicing law in the Nineveh criminal court,” civil rights activist Abu Abeer al-Jabouri told ARA News.
“The terrorist group had arrested the two female lawyers three months ago,” he said.
“They were shot dead in the Qiyarah district in southern Mosul on Friday,” the source added.
ISIS has banned civil law in areas under its control in Syria and Iraq. The group only recognizes Sharia courts that have been established under the umbrella of its self-declared caliphate.
