Islamic State (ISIS/ISIL) militants raped four women and then stoned them for adultery in Mosul, Iraq.
“The four victims were arrested earlier on [W]ednesday in a raid by ISIS jihadis,” stated Raafat Zarari, spokesman of the Nineveh Media Center. “The jihadis claimed to have captured the women while committing adultery.”
A Sharia court operated by the Islamic State sentenced the women to death.
“The four women were stoned to death on Thursday in front of a large crowd of people in central Mosul,” continued Zarari.
The sentence did not mention the men who raped the women, who, it can be assumed also committed “adultery” if they were married when the rape took place.
“The four women were most likely exposed to sexual abuse at the hands of ISIS militants before being driven out of their homes and transferred to the Sharia Court,” explained activist Abdullah al-Malla.
The statement of the Sharia Court regarding the case of those four women has avoided mentioning the men who have been involved in the alleged adultery. Apparently, the victims have been raped by ISIS jihadis and then stoned to death on charges of committing adultery.
The Islamic State has a history of stoning rape victims or anyone who allegedly commits adultery.
Last March, the group released pictures of militants stoning a couple in Iraq on charges of fornication. The terrorists also stoned a woman to death in Raqqa, Syria, on allegations of adultery. Additionally, jihadists beheaded a woman because she killed her would-be rapist, a member of the Islamic State.
A sex slave told CNN her rapist showed her a letter from Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. It said at least ten militants needed to rape any woman they captured so she will become Muslim.
“ISIS fighters told us, ‘This is the rule of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and we must do it,'” she said. “[They said] ‘Anyone who doesn’t convert to Islam, we will kill the males and marry the girls. They are the spoils of war. ‘”
The Islamic State published a guide for its militants with instructions of how to treat their female slaves. The authors insisted the terrorists can kidnap “unbelieving” women. They also wrote that the men can “buy, sell, or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property, which can be disposed of.”
The men may use the females as sex slaves “only when the master is the exclusive owner of that slave.”
“If she is a virgin,” the guide explains, “he [her master] can have intercourse with her immediately after taking possession of her. However, is [sic] she isn’t, her uterus must be purified [first].”
The guide also encourages pedophilia.
“It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse,” claims the guide.
