ISIS thugs murdered seven whole families including mums, dads and kids after catching them trying to flee the warzone of Mosul.

ISIS militant captured the men, women and children after the families tried to escape the final ISIS stronghold in Iraq.

Terrorists from the death cult are facing defeat in the city as they are bombarded by the Iraqi Army and US-led coalition.

Fear is being used by ISIS to try and keep control of its crumbling caliphate as they carry out brutal executions and torture.

The death cult are on the verge of collapse as Pentagon officials said most ISIS terror leaders are now dead.

Iraqi police commanders revealed the terror group’s latest atrocity as the government army storms into west Mosul.

The seven families had been made homeless by the battle and had made a bid for freedom from Tal al-Rayan village, south of Mosul.

But they were captured by ISIS, who refuse to allow civilians to leave the city so they can use them as human shields when they face the Iraqi army.

"The Islamic State executed seven displaced families, which were captured by the terrorist group while they were trying to escape from Tal al-Rayan village, south of Mosul,” said Colonel Khodier Saleh.

He added: "The Islamic State group blew up ten houses, few hours before the security forces storm into Nabi Sheth area, south of Mosul.”

“Security forces managed to recapture Nabi Sheth police station.”

ISIS are being battered in Iraq and mounting a mass retreat in Syria ready for the final battle for their last fortress of Raqqa.

Supreme leader of the death cult Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi admitted defeat in Mosul and told his fighters to “flee and hide”.

Government forces discovered ISIS’s biggest ever mass grave filled with more than 4,000 corpses in a grim find last week.
