As Iraqi military launch an attack to take over Mosul, ISIS release a sick video executing a prisoner

The battle for Mosul has been ongoing.
The Iraqi military in conjunction with the Kurdish Peshmerga and Sunni tribal fighters are ready for a battle to take over Mosul and are ready to die for it.

Inspite of this ISIS  has released sickening footage showing a prisoner being covered in spray paint then executed after he allegedly daubed anti- Islamic State graffiti on a wall in Iraq.

ISIS is known for such gruesome killings and this is the latest propaganda video as their stronghold ,Mosul came under attack on Monday.

A force of around 30,000 Iraqi government, Kurdish Peshmerga and Sunni tribal fighters - backed by the US-led coalition in the air and on the ground - advanced on the northern city, which has been under ISIS rule for more than two years.

Iraq's military claimed it inflicted "heavy losses of life" on ISIS on the first day of the campaign.
The battle could be ISIS' last stand in Iraq and it could deliver a massive blow to the terror group's operations elsewhere, including Syria.

However around a million civilians are caught up in the bloody conflict and aid groups fear many could be killed or injured if they are unable to flee gathered dailymail.

Scenes from the front lines were broadcast live on the internet as embedded journalists reported from Peshmerge positions.

Iraq's prime minister, Haider al-Abadi, said in a televised address that government troops are trying to free around a million residents, including hundreds of thousands of children, who have been trapped by the 'brutality' of terrorists.

He announced the start of a siege that is Iraq's toughest battle since American troops left nearly five years ago.

The US has predicted ISIS would suffer "a lasting defeat".

One resident, Abu Maher recounted how the ISIS group now use motorcycles for their patrols to evade air detection, with pillion passengers use binoculars to check out buildings and streets from a distance."

He said residents were preparing makeshift defences and had been stockpiling food in anticipation of a battle that could last weeks or even months.

Dr Natasha Underhill, an expert on terrorism in the Middle East at Nottingham Trent University, said this battle could be the "beginning of the end" for ISISand if successful could pose a massive blow to its ideological stance.

"The group is no longer the powerhouse that it once appeared and is in fact struggling not only to gain support but to keep the support in place that it currently has."
