MOSUL, IRAQ: ISIS terrorists recently executed 19 Yazidi girls because they refused to be sex slaves. These girls were burnt alive inside iron cages.
These 19 girls were set ablaze in the centre of Mosul on Thursday infront of a large crowd.
According to a witness, the girls were set ablaze in front of hundreds of people and nobody could do anything to save them from the brutal punishmnet.
SIS terrorists took over 3,000 Yazidi girls as sex slaves after they overran Sinjar in northwest Iraq in August 2014, causing a mass displacement of nearly 400,000 people to Duhok and Erbil in Iraqi Kurdistan.
ISIS continues to hold about 1,800 abducted Yazidi women and girls in Iraq and Syria, according to Kurdistan regional government officials.
During a lightening offensive in 2014, the ISIS captured Mosul, making it the 'capital' of its self-styled Caliphate, which extends across a swathe of territory in Iraq and Syria.
Supported by air strikes from the US-led coalition, by Kurdish Peshmerga troops and a Shia-dominated paramilitary force, Iraqi forces on March 24 began a long-awaited offensive to re-take Mosul from the terrorist group.
