 Islamic State (IS) militants executed 19 women in Mosul, Iraq for refusing to have sex with the group’s fighters, according to Kurdistan Democratic Party.

“The killings took place over the last two days and come right after the killing of 2,000 soldiers, police forces and electoral staff,” a party spokesperson, Saeed Mimousini, said.

“The penalty decision came on the background of the refusal to participate in the practice of sexual jihad,” he added.

The names of the 19 girls, who were executed over a period of two weeks, were revealed by the IS. Further, the group told the girls’ families not to expect their bodies for burial.

Over a year ago, when the IS took over the city of Mosul, the group demanded that people handover their unmarried daughters for fighters.

“We call upon the people of this county to bring their unmarried girls so they can fulfill their duty in sex jihad for their warrior brothers in the city and anyone who will not appear will feel the full force of the Sharia upon him.”

‘Sexual jihad’, a term coined by the group refers to the practice of women offering themselves sexually to fighters in order to lift their morale to continue the fight for the establishment of the Islamic state.

The Kurdish Democratic Party spokeperson also revealed that the ranks of IS have undergone divisions in Mosul due to conflicts over the issue of money distribution and women.

IS, which controls swathes of territory across Syria and Iraq where it has created a self-proclaimed “caliphate”, advocates an extreme view of the application of Sharia.

The extremists do not hesitate to impose brutal punishments including beheadings, stonings, floggings and crucifixions.

    It is my hope that somewhere behind closed doors, government officials are plotting a plan to eliminate these animals.
    I do not call them Muslim, or put blame on any Muslims or on anyone who considers themselves Islam.
    These are terrorists, hiding behind masks and using a religion as a shield to commit unspeakable crimes.
    They are not brave enough to show their faces – and are kidnapping and murdering innocent people who are not given a hope to fight back. They prey on weak minded individuals to join their cult. Like all other evils – they will fall, they will lose.Recommend

    This is total blasphemy! Preposterous!
    They are impostors, these militants. Under real Islam, they’d be subject to death penalty for their heinous crimes. Islam is a religion of peace, not war. Sex and marriage cannot be enforced on anyone under Islam. I’m shocked to see they consider themselves correct enough to call themselves a Caliphate.
    These groups are totally different from the mainstream Islam practiced all around the world by 99.99% of the Muslim population, and so is their so called “Shariah”. Therefore, I’m ready to bet my life that these groups were created for political reasons, geographical terrorism, and anti-Islamic slander.Recommend

    ISIS has overplayed their drama of impostering Islam so much that from a staunch opponent of Islam to a casual observer no one is buying their non-sense anymore. Forget about tarnishing Islam’s image, these animals have successfully invited the wrath of whole humanity upon them and they will be dealt in the same coin. Recommend
