Islamic State of Iraq and Syria Preventing Assyrians From Selling Their Homes - AINA







Posted 2014-05-25 03:46 GMT

Mosul, Iraq (AINA) -- According to a report published by the Iraq Press, hundreds of Assyrians in Mosul have been forced to leave the city by fighters of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, also known as Daash. The Assyrians have been prevented by Daash from selling their homes. Daash has killed real estate agents who do business with Christians.

Unidentified gunmen assassinated the owner of the Zouhour Real Estates agency after he brokered the sale of a Christian house.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, a source at the Nineveh Operation Command said that "ten real estate agents have been killed between 2013 and 2014, most recently the owner of El Nour Realty Office in the region of Mouhandiseen after he was kidnapped and beheaded for selling the house of a Christian family.

The owner of a real estate agency said "there are those who engaged secretly in the sale of real estate outside of the office environment, but the information was leaked to Daash quickly through informants belonging to them. Daash beheaded two of them in front of the owners of some offices selling real estate."

An Assyrian mother said to Iraq Press "The broker who sold my home in March 2013 was killed by armed groups and he was a father of four children. I feel I'm the responsible of this."

Rachel Ishu, an Assyrian from Mosul, demanded the Nineveh Operations Command find a solution to this humanitarian disaster that has affected nearly 5,000 Christian families. "I live in a small house in located 40 KM north-east of Mosul, I pay a monthly rental of 500 Dinars, I have no breadwinner, only an employed daughter who pays all her salary as rent for our house. We were removed from our large house north of Mosul, without being able to sell it."
