ISIS Reported to Have Killed and Mass-Buried 150 Female Captives For Refusing Jihadi Marriage

The depravity intensifies, if that’s even possible.

Via the Independent:

Isis has executed at least 150 women for refusing to marry militants in Iraq, Turkish media has reported. A statement released by Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights on Tuesday said the militants had attacked women in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar before burying them in mass graves in Fallujah. Some of the women killed were pregnant at the time, according to the Anadolu Agency.

“At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage,” the statement said.

The news comes days after an internal ISIS pamphlet surfaced with advice on how to treat female prisoners of war. In it, rape is enthusiastically sanctioned. Among other things, the document gives ISIS fighters permission

“… to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.”

That interpretation of Islam in in keeping with the example of its prophet, who married Aisha when she was six and consummated the relationship when she was nine.
