Reports from Iraq indicate the Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) burned an 80-year-old woman to death after she failed to obey Sharia law.
The vicious act occurred in a town just 12 miles south of Mosul. Sa’ed Mamuzini with the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) told the media the Christian woman hailed “from Kremlis in the Nimrud area of the Hamdaneya sub district, east of Mosul.”
The news comes only a day after ISIS allegedly burned a 20-year-old woman alive “because she refused to perform an extreme sex act.” Zainab Bangura, the United Nation’s representative for sexual crimes in war, interviewed people displaced by ISIS.
“They commit rape, sexual slavery, forced prostitution and other acts of extreme brutality,” Bangura asserted. “We heard one case of a 20-year-old girl who was burned alive because she refused to perform an extreme sex act. We learned of many other sadistic sexual acts. We struggled to understand the mentality of people who commit such crimes.”
ISIS stormed into Iraq and Syria in 2014, leveling historical monuments and kidnapping females as it establishes its caliphate. Yazidi populations have suffered the most under the hands of ISIS terrorists, who interpret the Yazidi worship of the Peacock Angel as “devil worship.”
“After attacking a village, [the Islamic State] splits women from men and executes boys and men aged 14 and over,” she explained. “The women and mothers are separated; girls are stripped naked, tested for virginity and examined for breast size and prettiness. The youngest, and those considered the prettiest virgins fetch higher prices and are sent to Raqqa, the IS stronghold.”
In early May, Bangura spoke to journalists about her previous interviews with women ISIS forced into sex slavery. These women told her about the slave markets and females undergoing surgery to restore their virginity.
“Girls are literally being stripped naked and examined in slave bazaars,” she claimed, and said they were “categorized and shipped naked off to Dohuk or Mosul or other locations to be distributed among ISIL leadership and fighters.”
