Iraq: Army discover IS courtroom with human cages in Fallujah

Iraq, Fallujah
September 9, 2016 at 18:03 GMT -00:00 · Published

A video released by RT Arabic on Friday shows what is believed to be a Sharia courtroom for trials staged by the so-called Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) in the Jubail District of Fallujah.

The video shows old court papers, which include photos and documents of proceedings and complaints concerning conflicts between IS members.

One Iraqi soldier, Ahmed Shaker Mahmoud, said, "The court and jail were located near each other, in neighbouring buildings. Right from the court the people were escorted to jail or were killed."

Iraqi troops also found iron cages of various sizes, some so small it appeared as though they were made for children. According to Iraqi investigators, the sentences of imprisonment and torture were handed down to members of the local community who disagreed with IS decrees.

Fallujah, about 40 miles (78 kilometers) west of Baghdad, was announced liberated from IS on June 5, 2016, following the Iraqi army's final gains over the northwestern al-Julan neighbourhood, the last area controlled by IS in the city.
