IS militnats have reportedly shot and killed scores of civilians in Mosul in recent days, according to the UN.

The UN also confirmed the discovery of a mass grave in the nearby town of Hammam al-Alil in which more than 100 bodies were found, ALJazeera reported according to Reuters.

In a brief published on Friday detailing a series of ISIL executions and abuses, the UN’s human rights office said that 40 people were killed by the armed group on Tuesday for “treason and collaboration” with Iraqi forces and their allies closing in on the city during a major military push, It added.

According to the UN report, dressed in orange jumpsuits, the bodies of the victims were hung from electrical poles in several areas around Mosul.
