BEIRUT, LEBANON (7:50 A.M.) – The Iraqi commander responsible for conceding the historical city of Mosul to the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) in the Summer of 2014 has been sentenced to death by a military tribunal, Al-Sura News reported.

General Mahdi Al-Gharawi was issued a death sentence by a military tribunal this week, marking the first time an army commander has been given the death penalty under Iraqi Prime Minister, Haidar Al-‘Abadi.

A document detailing the crimes committed by General Gharawi were released by pro-government media outlets on Friday – please see below:

ISIS took control of Mosul in 2014, following the abrupt withdrawal of some 10,000 Iraqi Army soldiers under the command of General Gharawi.

mmm I am not sure about this. The 100,000 Iraqis under him ran away leaving behind all their weapons.

Now I have read previously that he was given order to run away …. the only ones that would give that order are the US command.

I think we are seeing the death of a potential tell tale.

But what the hell, get rid of him anyway.

Exactly, previous reports a year or two ago, were saying he had been given direct orders to run and leave behind all the weapons.

Yes, really interesting. It seems like the real cowards will be left on freedom and the wrong gay hanged!

General Gharawi was taking his orders from the Americans, and they were taking their orders from the Jews and they were taking their orders from Satan.
