Members of the Daesh terrorist group have reportedly detained more than 100 civilians in Iraq’s beleaguered northern province of Nineveh, as they continue committing crimes in the areas under their control.

The spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Mosul, Saeed Mamouzini, told Arabic-language al-Sumaria satellite television network on Saturday that Daesh arrested 127 residents of the militant-held city, located some 400 kilometers (248 miles) north of the capital, Baghdad, on charges of using mobile phones.

Mamouzini added that Daesh is terrified of a public uprising against its rule in Mosul, and strictly monitors the movements of the city dwellers.
