ISIS kills more than 150 women, girls for refusing ‘Jihad marriage’

The Iraqi Human Rights Ministry has declared that an ISIS terrorist known as Abu Anas Al-Libi, has killed more than 150 women and girls for refusing to comply with the “Jihad marriage” (Jihad el-Nikah) order enforced by the extremist group, Al Arabiya’s Jawad El-Hatab reported Tuesday.

Libi is not to be confused with the man carrying the same name currently undergoing trial in the U.S. on terrorism charges.

Libi reportedly executed a series of women, including some who were pregnant, in the Iraqi city of Al-Fallujah, the Ministry said in a communique.

ISIS has perpetrated extensive killing operations in the city, burying the victims in two mass graves in Al-Zaghareed area in the Joulan Quarter and Al-Saqlawiya area, the statement added.

The Ministry also said that ISIS militants turned the Al-Hadra Al-Muhamadiya mosque in Al-Fallujah into a big prison where hundreds of men and women are held.

Last Friday, ISIS had distributed leaflets allowing its fighters’ the right to Jihad marriage, taking women hostage and marrying more than one woman even if the women were sisters or related as maternal and paternal aunts.

The leaflets also allows ISIS fighters to marry minors under 18 years of age.
