An Iraqi woman has reportedly killed an Islamic State (Isis) militant commander Abu Anas. She allegedly killed Anas three months after he forced her to marry his militant comrades.
Saeed Mamouzini, spokesman for the Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) in Mosul, told the al-Sumaria TV network that the woman killed the terrorist, known as Abu Anas, in Tal Roman district, west of the IS-held city of Mosul.
Hana Nawafili, a spokeswoman for the Iraqi Observatory for the Defence of Battered Women, told Arabic-language al-Maalomah news agency on 18 July that IS terrorists had gang-raped seven female residents ofFallujah, situated about 69km (43 miles) west of Baghdad, and then murdered them.
A 12-year-old girl who escaped the group, ISIS told the New York Times that the man who abused her explained to her that the sickening act he was about to commit was not a sin because she was not Muslim.
In fact, he claimed her faith not only gave him the right to rape her, but encouraged it. After tying her up and gagging her, he knelt beside the bed and prayed. Afterwards, he prayed again.
The girl, who was interviewed in a refugee camp, said: “I kept telling him it hurts – please stop.
“He told me that according to Islam he is allowed to rape an unbeliever. He said that by raping me, he is drawing closer to God.”
Muslims throughout the world have condemned ISIS for using the Islamic faith to justify their sickening acts.
