Former Parliamentary Candidate, Zeina Al-Nouri, was kidnapped by ISIS at the Al-Nour Neighborhood in Mosul, Iraq. Zeina, along with dozens of civilians, were brutally executed by ISIS over the weekend, as the latter claimed these people have committed crimes against the Caliphate. Zeina was 33 years old and considered an intelligent woman with a strong conviction for peace in Iraq.
While, Zeina was never elected to the Iraqi Parliament, she was an outspoken politician, with admirable aspirations for her beloved country. She was very active in the Nineveh District and considered a rising star in Iraqi politics.
