A recent spate of killings of Islamic State members has ISIS jihadists in and around Mosul looking over their shoulders. A new curfew on civilians in west Mosul may be a reaction to this.

 

Earlier this week, it was reported that Abu Sayyaf, the Islamic State’s chief executioner and leader of their cell in the Nineveh province, was attacked and killed near Mosul on Sunday night. Sayyaf is believed to have beheaded more than 100 people and collected their decapitated heads for trophies.

 

“Abu Sayyaf” is Arabic for “father of the swordsmith.” His name is not to be confused with the Islamic State affiliate group in the Philippines of the same name that has also beheaded captives.
