7th century barbarity utilizes 21st century high tech.
(Al-Shorfa) The "Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant" (ISIL) has installed large screens across Mosul which display videos of executions and tortures, the Ninawa tribal council said Friday (November 7th).

"ISIL has installed five screens in al-Majmoua, al-Sarjkhanah, al-Zuhour, al-Mithaq and al-Maydan neighbourhoods in Mosul and began screening videos of various executions, floggings and torture of civilian victims," council deputy head Ibrahim al-Hassan told Al-Shorfa.

ISIL also is broadcasting extremist sermons calling for attacks and urging Iraqis to join the group, he added.

These steps are an attempt by ISIL to intimidate the people of Mosul after rejection against it grew, al-Hassan said.
