Abu Rahman, an ISIS commander, was gunned down in Mosul
Pictures show Abu Abdel Rahman, who used a meat cleaver to to slaughter his female victims, before he was shot dead in the ISIS stronghold in northern Iraq.
The death cult’s senior commander is believed to have been gunned down in the al-Askari neighbourhood, which is yet to be liberated from ISIS control.
A security source revealed: “The unknown gunmen shot at Abu Abdel Rahman, ISIS’ senior commander, in al-Askari region in the centre of Mosul city, and he was killed right on the spot.”
More than 250 women were butchered in Mosul in April after refusing to enter into “sexual jihad” with ISIS fighters and Rahman, from Saudi Arabia, is believed to have been present throughout their executions.
A Kurdish military spokesman said many of the women who rejected the “temporary marriages” were killed along with their families.
The warped terror cell has a long history of maltreatment towards women, routinely using rape as a weapon and selling thousands of female captives into the sex trade, even using online bidding forums.
Despite a concerted effort from a combination of Peshmerga, Kurdish and Iraqi forces, the western side of Mosul remains under ISIS control.
The UN estimates 750,000 civilians are still trapped in the so-called Caliphate-inspired region, and there are fears they could be used as human shields or even slaughtered as Islamic State forces are gradually pushed back.
Iraqi, Kurdish and Peshmerga troops are destroying ISIS in Mosul
Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi earlier this week claimed Mosul's eastern half was completely free of ISIS insurgents.
He praised “the unmatched heroism of all security forces factions” in Iraq’s second largest city.

Forces battle against ISIS
Iraq’s airforce are continuing to bombard Mosul, but ISIS are holed up in a labyrinth of underground tunnels so hand to hand combat will be necessary at some point.
The city has been under ISIS control since it fell in the summer of 2014.
