The Daesh (ISIS/ISIL) terrorists have reportedly killed as many as 200 Turkmens, including women and children in Tal Afar town, west of Mosul of Iraq, an official told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.
Nour Eddin Qablan, deputy chief of Nineveh provinvial council said the Iraqi Turkmens, were held by the terror group two months ago and were killed during their attempt to flee toward safe regions.
Tal Afar is one of the important strongholds still held by Daesh in Nineveh since August 2014.
Meanwhile, a local source from Nineveh province told AlSumaria News that non-Iraqi Daesh terrorists also executed the last local leader in Tal Afar.
“Arab and foreign Daesh militants have become in control of the town after eliminating all the Iraqi leaders,” it added.
“The last local leader was killed over accusation of looting money,” the source, who preferred anonymity, said adding that the town is currently run by Arab and foreign members.
