A commander of a Christian militia working in coordination with the ‘Popular Mobilization Forces’ in Iraq, threatened locals in one of the Mosul neighbourhoods with either leaving homes or exterminating, according to video footage published on social media.
Salman Aso Habbeh was warning sons of the Arab tribes in the Takleef province of al-Mosul of death if they did not leave their homes and villages within 72 hours.
"If I see anyone of you in this area after 72 hours from now, I will remove him by hoe," Aso Habbeh says in the published footage.
Salman Aso Habeh is a Christian militia commander. He was born in Nineveh in 1956. His terrorist group was notorious for torturing civilians fleeing from al-Faloja in Iraq.
It is worth reminding that the pro-Iran militias committed many atrocities and abuses against Sunnis in Iraq. Human Rights Watch (HRW) accused those sectarian groups, in many reports in 2016, of detaining and torturing civilians near Mosul in northern Iraq.
