Iraq’s PMF Hands over 16 Mosul Villages to Army

Iraqi Popular Mobilization Forces, al-Hashd al-Sha’abi, started Thursday to hand over to the Iraqi army 16 villages in Mosul they have recaptured from ISIL militants, according to a local official.

Al-Hashd al-Sha’abi forces have begun to hand over 16 liberated villages in Tal Afar, West of Mosul, to the army’s 15th division,” said Hossam Eddin al-Abbar, a member of Nineveh province’s council, Iraqi News reported.

He said that the army will take hold of those territories as the popular forces proceed to free more villages.

Over 300 Former Iraqi Policemen Buried in ISIL Mass Grave near Mosul

ISIL militants killed more than 300 Iraqi former police three weeks ago and buried them in a mass grave near the town of Hammam al-Alil South of Mosul, Human Rights Watch said on Thursday.

Local residents near the site of the mass grave told reporters the ultra-hardline militants buried victims who had been shot or beheaded, Business Insider reported.

The residents said they believed up to 200 people were killed in the weeks before ISIL withdrew from the town.

Human Rights Watch said some of the former policemen were separated from a group of about 2,000 people from nearby villages and towns who were forced to march alongside the militants last month as they retreated North to Mosul and the town of Tal Afar.

Report: People Demanding Terrorists’ Exit from Eastern Aleppo, Hold Up Bashar Assad’s Pictures

Residents of the Eastern parts of Aleppo city took to the streets holding up pictures of Syrian President Bashar Assad and requesting militants to leave Aleppo immediately, media reports said.

A video footage released on Thursday showed picture of President Assad put on the entrance gate of a mosque, several Arabic-language media outlets reported.

The video showed Bashar Assad’s picture on the gate of Abu Bakr al-Sadiq mosque in Sakhor district.
FNA cannot verify or reject authenticity of the video independently.

According to reports on Thursday, militants that control the Eastern part of Aleppo are trying to suppress mass protests of local residents against their rule.

Meanwhile, Al Manar TV channel reported that dozens of people gathered in the Bustan al-Qasr district where one of the humanitarian corridors has been established by the army for civilians to leave the city.

Meantime, people are reportedly protesting at the militant groups’ exclusive access to the international humanitarian aid.

Protesters tried to break into several food storage but militants opened fire, leaving many people injured.

Protests also took place in the districts of Jisr al Haj, al Kallas and al Marjah.

On Wednesday, local sources reported that civilians in the Eastern districts of Aleppo city took to the streets to protest at Jeish al-Fatah’s presence in their city, requesting the militants to leave Aleppo immediately.

“Unprecedented clashes between people and terrorists have pushed the Eastern neighborhoods of Aleppo city into a new wave of tensions,” sources said, adding, “People have taken part in demonstrations across the districts of Bostan al-Qasr and al-Kelaseh, calling on the terrorists to leave the city now.”

“People have also attacked terrorists’ food stuff warehouses, fighting with the militants for looting their food stuff from their neighborhoods,” the sources added.

The sources went on to say that terrorists have arrested a number of demonstrators, hitting them badly.

Civilians in militant-held districts of Aleppo are tired of terrorist groups’ measures, including suppression of people and banning food and medicine for the families who prevent their young sons from joining the terrorist groups.

The Arab media reported on Tuesday that people in militant-held neighborhoods were about to engage in street clashes with terrorists to save their lives.

The Arabic language al-Watan reported on Tuesday that the Syrian Army’s deadline for the exit of terrorists from Eastern districts of Aleppo ended, but no militant or civilian left the city via the humanitarian corridors, including Bostan al-Qasr and Costello.

In addition to preventing militants’ approach to the two specified corridors, Fatah al-Sham Front (the al-Qaeda-affiliated terrorist group previously known as the al-Nusra Front) threatened civilians with death if they approach the six humanitarian corridors that connect Eastern Aleppo to its Western part.

Reports from the city said terrorists blocked the exit of hundreds of residents in the Eastern districts of Aleppo, who had gathered near al-Kelaseh checkpoint, from approaching Bostan al-Qasr corridor.

Terrorists meantime arrested over 20 residents of Bostan al-Qasr neighborhood on charges of cooperation with the Syrian army, local sources told al-Watan.

Terrorists’ cruelty and oppression against civilians in the Eastern districts of Aleppo has significantly increased, pushing people into escalation of uprising and clashes with the militants.

A field source in Aleppo Operations Room said on Tuesday that the Syrian Army will not give any other chance to Jeish al-Fatah terrorists and will start its final operation against militants’ positions in the Eastern part of Aleppo soon.

“Terrorist groups have refuted the entire terms of the ceasefire to pull back their forces from the Eastern Neighborhoods of Aleppo to maintain security of civilians. The militants are still using civilians as human shield and do not allow them to leave the Eastern parts of the city,” the source said.

“The 24-hour ultimatum of the Syrian army to the terrorists ended last night (Monday night), so the army’s operation will soon start. Reconnaissance planes have carried out tens of flights over the city and its countryside and specified the targets,” the source added.

Local Sources: Terrorists in Eastern Aleppo Losing Trust in Commanders

Local sources disclosed that the terrorists have lost their confidence in their senior commanders in Eastern Aleppo after repeated failures to break the siege laid by the army against them.

“After militants experienced repeated defeats in different flanks of Aleppo and sustained heavy losses, they have lost their morale,” the Arabic-language media outlets quoted a local source as saying on Thursday.

The source noted that the residents of Eastern Aleppo have revolted against the terrorists in street protests, condemning their atrocities.

The people of Eastern Aleppo say that they are frustrated with the presence of the terrorists in the residential areas of Eastern Aleppo, the source said.

Meantime, another local source disclosed that civilians are deprived of their rights to foodstuff and medical aid as terrorists only allow those people who fight alongside the militants to find access to food and drug.

The source noted that the terrorists beat up and arrest anyone, even the children and elderly people, who do not obey their orders.

He said that a large number of the residents of these regions feel that terrorists use them as human shield and are keeping them hungry as a pressure lever to win international support.

“The terrorists’ mistreatment of people has resulted in street protests and attacking the main warehouses which are under the terrorists’ control. The people of Eastern Aleppo say that the terrorists are hoarding foodstuff and medicine,” he added.
