AFP reports that Daesh executed six men in Fallujah for allegedly spying for the Iraqi government.
Daesh posted pictures of the men on social media, with an accompanying statement that they killed the men in three different ways: four were shot in the head, one was decapitated with a knife, and the final killed with an explosive rope.
"The judicial police carried out death sentences issued by an Islamic court in Fallujah against several apostates after they were convicted of spying," Daesh's statement said.
Daesh controls Fallujah in the Anbar province, 50km west of Baghdad. Most of Daesh's other territories in the province were retaken by Iraqi security forces in recent months. Fallujah is isolated from other Daesh strongholds and it is believed that the militant group is facing difficulties maintaining control of the city.
