Iraq’s Rapid Execution Of ISIS Militants, Justice Or Sectarianism?

Executions by hanging of ISIS fighters, an attempt to create more sectarianism?

(Inquisitr) – It’s been reported that the Islamic State is on the run in Iraq, or that they’re being pushed out and aggressively fighting back. According to many of these reports however, their domination of territory has significantly weakened and as their strongholds are taken over by those coalition forces, they’re cracking down on those who fought with and for the Islamic State.

Various sources are reporting on the execution of 36 ISIS fighters by the Iraqi government for the killing of 1,700 recruits who were kidnapped from a base in 2014. Even though this kind of “justice” is common for justice systems throughout the Middle East, there’s reason to also be concerned that this might also fuel sectarianism, as the ISIS militants are Sunni Muslims.
