Through a public proclamation, on February 2, the Islamic State announced that it had executed yet another Christian priest in Mosul — Paul Jacob, the parson of a church in eastern Iraqi city who was kidnapped eight months ago. His parish was also blown up. The execution reportedly took place in Ghazlani Camp in southern Mosul where a militia camp is located.
Update 2: Despite Update 1, several Arabic social media continue not only to report this story as true, but to scold Western media and churchmen for not reporting on it. Most of these reports also post the following picture. Note that the man being beheaded does look similar to the blindfolded man being led away in the picture above, which earlier reports said was Paul Jacob when IS first abducted him eight months earlier.
