Hundreds of thousands of Christians evacuated weeks ago because of increasing violence at the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), and thousands more left after the group issued the religious minority a deadly ultimatum.
ISIS demanded that the Christians either convert to Islam, pay a tax, or leave the area. Failure to comply would result in their deaths. Now, after over 2,000 years, there are no Christians in the Nineveh Province capital.
The Muslims that remain in Mosul are living under Sharia law, and many are also trying to escape, Christian Headlines reported Monday.
