Furious Iraqis are taking the law into their own hands by killing people they claim are members of the depraved terror group.
Axar.az reports citing Daily Express.
Eleven suspected jihadis were recently executed by a roadside in Hammam al-Alil, a town 20 miles south of Mosul.
It was liberated from the clutches of ISIS, also known as ISIS, six months ago.
One member of the group said it was carrying out the vigilante attacks as revenge after his cousin had been killed by ISIS militants.
The man, who identified himself as Omar, told the Telegraph: "It's a reciprocity. They hurt my family, now we will hurt theirs."
The vigilantes have also turned to social media, posting the addresses of dead and imprisoned ISIS fighters on Facebook.
A group called Hammam al-Alil Revolution last month urged its 650 members to "burn them in their houses".
The post added: "We are now locating ISIS families. We will make them regret joining. Good luck everyone."
Ali Hamed Ahmed, 65, said he was targeted because three of his sons fought for ISIS.
The 65-year-old said he is "still afraid" the gang, who threw explosives at his front door, will return.
He added: "Our family is being punished for the sins of our sons.
"We have great shame for what they did, but they are not here now and this is our house. This is not right."
