ISIS executes 250 women who refused to become sex slaves for Jihadis
| April 22nd 2016
At least 250 Iraqi women were executed by Islamic State fighters - because they refused to become sex slaves.
The brutal slaughter took place in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, which has been overrun by Islamic State militants.
IS fanatics are coercing women to accept temporary marriages - or face murder.
A spokesperson for the Kurdish Democratic Party, one of the forces fighting ISIS in Iraq, said: "At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to IS’ request."
Officials say that women living in the city are treated as commodities and have their human rights routinely abuse abused. Surchi said that women were not allowed to go out alone in Mosul and cannot choose their spouses.
The executions follows a spate of similar killings that took place last August in which 19 Mosul women were slaughtered for refusing to have sex with IS fighters, the report said. Up to 500 Yazidi women and girls were kidnapped and sexually abused by militants in August 2014.
In October, more than 500 Yazidi women and young girls were reportedly abducted by the IS when they stormed the Sinjar region in northern Iraq. One sex slave survivor Nadia Murad told of how ISIS fighters killed six of her brothers as well as her mother in northern Iraq. She was orphaned and taken into captivity after the slaughter, but has now called for "humanity" to unite against the terrorist monsters following her escape.
ISIS took control of Mosul in June 2014 after the fall of Iraqi army in the city and since then has been slaughtering its residents for various charges to spread fear.
