ISIS terrorists have killed three civilians in Mosul's right bank, security sources told The Baghdad Post.

The victims were killed for attempting to flee the ISIS-held Abar (Wells) district to neighborhoods recaptured by the governmental forces, the sources said.

The Iraqi army, supported by the International Coalition airstrikes, have so far liberated most of the right bank.
 
However, the rules of engagement adopted by the forces were heavily slammed by lawmakers and human rights activists for not taking the lives of civilians into consideration.
 
Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, fell to ISIS in June, 2014 after the Iraqi forces had mysteriously withdrawn the battle fields. 

The terror group has committed a series of atrocities against civilians including mass executions and abduction of women.

On Wednesday, Commander of 'We are coming, Nineveh' offensive to retake Mosul's right bank, Lt Gen. Abdul Amir Rashid al-Yarallah announced 1000 ISIS terrorists had been killed since the start of the operations on February 19th.
