Iran-backed IMIS shelling kills 5-memebr family western Mosul

Iran-allied IMIS militias have killed an Iraqi family in Tal Afar district in western Mosul, security sources told The Baghdad Post on Saturday.

The five-member family was killed in an IMIS shelling that hit Al Nour neighborhood. 

The Shiite militias give military support to the Iraqi army in its offensive against ISIS terrorists. 

But independent reports say the militias had repeatedly looted, tortured and killed civilians, particularly Sunnis. 

Human rights activists have called authorities to dismantle the militias. However, Iraqi PM Haider Abadi is unable to take the decision.
