The ISIL terrorist group has executed 150 women in the Western Iraqi province of Anbar for refusing to marry militants.
"At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah… after they refused to accept jihad marriage," read a statement issued by Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights on Tuesday.
"Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats," the statement added.
According to the Iraqi Ministry of Human Rights, many children lost their lives after their families took refuge in the deserts in an attempt to escape from terrorists.
The issue of the so-called Jihad al-Nikah (sexual jihad) was first brought up last September when it was revealed that a number of Sunni girls had travelled to Syria to marry militants. This is while the real Islam in no way approves of the so-called Jihad al-Nikah.
Anbar province, which borders conflict-ravaged Syria, has been a major stronghold of the ISIL militants and continues to be largely controlled by the terror group.
ISIL terrorists control large areas across northern and western Iraq as well as eastern Syria.
The militants have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians
