ISIS militants have reportedly opened a market to sell items that they stole from Christians in Mosul. Christian Today reports that the market will sell the goods that the terrorists looted from Christian homes and churches in the city. 


The market is called “Spoils of Nasara (Christians).” 


A variety of household items are present at the market including TVs, appliances, and air conditioning units. The goods are being sold to local people at a low cost which has made the market popular with some residents. 


Christians were forced out of Mosul last summer when ISIS gained control of the city. Christian residents were given the choice of leaving the city, paying a high tax or being executed by militants. 


Iraqi forces continue to fight the terrorist regime with the help of U.S. airstrikes and other allies.
