At least 250 women have been executed in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul, an ISIS stronghold since 2014.
The women were executed for refusing to submit and accept “temporary marriages” to ISIS militants as sexual jihad.
Said Mamuzini, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP), official 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’s request.”
Ghayas Surchi, an official from the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan, told the AhlulBayt News Agency that human rights are widely violated by ISIS and that women are seen as commodities and they have no choice in choosing their spouses.
He added that women are forbidden from going out in Mosul alone and must be fully covered whenever they’re in public. Disobedience is severely punished.
Girls and boys are not allowed to see or talk with each other, making choosing a soul mate virtually impossible.
Several teachers and civil servants in Mosul were reported executed by ISIS earlier this year for not following a new curriculum introduced to schools by the militants.
One teacher told AhlulBayt, “These essential courses have been replaced by some extremist subjects on so-called Shariah and jihad, designed by the group to ideologize students and gain their support to the alleged caliphate.
