Iraqi Counter Terrorism Forces discover one of ISIS' largest prisons in al-Qadisiyah neighbourhood

The prison in al-Qadisiyah, east of Mosul, was converted from a two-storey house by ISIS militants and used to hold civilians for charges including shaving or wearing a short thobe.

Discovered by the Iraqi Counter Terrorism Forces which seek to continue their advance from the east to liberate Mosul, the prison was comprised of over 100 small and cramped cells used to torture inmates.

Documents were found in the cells which indicate that Yazidis and Christians were being held in the prison, along with weapons used to torture the captives.

In other parts of Mosul, residents speak about punishments at the hands of ISIS members.
