Ms. Psaki explained it cannot be confirmed the truthfulness of the reports. However, it cannot be denied that the terrorist group aims to set fear into the hearts of all Iraqis and drive sectarian division among its people.

According to Ms. Psaki, the ISIS who commit such heinous acts are a shared enemy of the United States, Iraq, and the international community.

Iraq's notorious rebel fighters seized the country's second-largest city of Mosul.

The rebel fighters popularly known as the Islamic State of Iraq or ISIS made advances in the city where hundreds of rebels launched an assault on Mosul, creating clamor and mass displacements in the city.

Before they gained control of the city, the rebel group took control of the governor's headquarters and TV stations.

ISIS Brings Terror In Iraq

The rebel fighters belong to the jihadist Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham.

The recent terroristic moves are not something new for ISIS - the group is known for its insurgency operations in Nineveh and other provinces.

Mosul is the second city to be seized by ISIS militants this year. The Iraqi government lost control of Fallujah earlier this year.

With the raging aggression in Mosul, the International Organization for Migration estimates that the number of people displaced by violence in Mosul and surrounding areas of Ninewa governorate in recent days may have reached 500,000.
