‘A sniper shot Mustafa Mahmoud, 17, as he tried to escape the fighting in Mosul. A lifelong Real Madrid fan, ISIS had made him cut the team’s badge from his football shirts as they said they were ‘infidel badges’. Despite their warnings, he still found ways to watch their matches, a crime others were killed for during ISIS’s two years in control.’
