Residents: ISIS Fighters Live Among Civilians in Mosul
ISIS militants are living among civilians in the terror group’s former stronghold in Mosul, Iraq, residents say. “There are at least 30 ISIS terrorists in my neighborhood. We know them very well,” one resident told NBC News. Zuher Al-Juburi, a government-appointed politician in Mosul, said “the only thing they did is they shaved their beards and changed their clothes.” He added that the militants “launch terror attacks from time to time.” Iraqi forces re-took Mosul from ISIS, and most recently regained control of a mosque where ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi first declared the ISIS caliphate in 2014.
