Mosul torture exposed: Iraqi forces’ abuses filmed

Iraqi forces, leading a vigorous battle to liberate Mosul from ISIS, has been exposed torturing and abusing their captives suspected of having terrorists links, according to a photographer who has been embedded with an elite unit of the Iraqi interior ministry.

Having worked alongside the elite Emergency Response Division (ERD) in Iraq, freelance photographer Ali Arkady documented how, in their battle against jihadists, Iraqi security forces resorted to the very tactics that are comparable to the brutal practices of their nemesis, IS.

The photographer, who earned the Iraqi soldiers’ trust to cover the Mosul frontline, was allowed to witness some of the “interrogation” sessions, intended to force confessions from prisoners of war accused of affiliation with the terrorist group.
