Mosul (IraqiNews.com) Three persons, including a woman, were shot dead by armed individuals Tuesday in eastern Mosul for having links with Islamic State militants.

A security source told Shafaq News webste that unknown armed persons invaded a house in al-Sukkar district, northeast of Mosul, and killed three members of one family, while a fourth woman was wounded.

According to the source, the family had sons who served as Islamic State members, one of whom had been killed in battles.

The woman killed in the raid was a member of the extremist group’s Hisbah (vigilantism) division.

Iraqi government forces consummated the recapture of Mosul early July.

The eastern section of the city was retaken late January.

Up to 30.000 members of the group had been killed in more than eight months of military operations in the city, Iraqi commanders had declared.

The Iraqi security forces had regularly combed areas recaptured from the militants in search for remnant cells.

Local authorities had also declared plans to isolate militants families in rehabilitation camps, and to deport foreign nationals to their home countries.

The Iraqi government intends to invade other Islamic State militants havens in Kirkuk, Anbar and Salahuddin.
