Fallujah (Iraq), Dec 18: Even before the world could overcome the shock it received in Sydney and Peshawar a few days ago, reports came out that Islamic State militants beheaded women in Iraq, some of whom were pregnant, for refusing to marry militants and buried them in mass graves.
At least 150 women, including pregnant ones, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi for refusing to accept jihad marriage, the Independent quoted Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights as saying.
Recently, the militants shot dead at least 50 men, women and children in Iraq. They also beheaded a few westerners, including aid worker, tourist and journalists, in the region over the last few months. Even the videos of the beheadings were spread online.
The ISIS has already taken control of the Iraqi city of Fallujah for almost a year now and is growing in strength while taking on President Bashar al-Assad in Syria. In June, the terror outfit took over Mosul, prompting even the mighty United States to express concern over the serious situation.
