Press sources: Real concerns increase about committing extermination campaigns by (Al-Hashd Al-Sha'bi) Militia in Nineveh province
News reports published today morning ,Monday, asserted that (Al-Hashd Al-Sha'bi)Militias have issued lists including thousands of persons in Nineveh province ,and claimed that they are (wanted).
The news quoted informed sources saying ; that these lists include names of officers ,doctors ,university professors and tribe sheikhs ;which means that assassination and murder campaigns will take place in the province especially in the areas where the government forces control.
In this context , the sources mentioned that (Al-Hashd Al-Sha'bi) Militias in (Tala'far)Town ,which is located northwest of Mosul ,have issued another list including hundreds of names asserting that they have ordered the government army and police to (arrest anyone who his name mentioned in the list and hand him to the checkpoint of Al-Hashd Al-Sha'bi).
Therefore; the tribal and academic surroundings in the province have expressed concerns about the crimes of assassination and murder which may be committed based on these lists issued for sectarian motives to accuse the civilians of ( terrorism ) explaining that fear grows because of the possibility of arresting or killing senior officers and pilots who participated in the Iraqi-Iranian war in the eighties of the last century as what took place previously in Salah-il-deen province.
According to observers, the militias' intent seems real because those militias tortured and killed civilians in the areas east of Mosul in the last few days under the pretext of that they are armed or cooperated with the (Islamic State).
