A number of regional Iraqi governments reported Wednesday that Islamic State members in the city of Falluja killed 150 women and underage girls that refused to perform sexual acts for fighters.
They reported that after the Islamic State members murdered the women and girls, among them pregnant women, they then proceeded to bury the victims in large mass graves in the city.
The governments' report went on to say that an Islamic State leader named "Abu Anas al-Libi" was behind the murders, though did not mention major details of the incident, such as when the killings to place or how the victims were killed.
These murders are only a handful of the horrors that face Iraqi civilians in the region. A human rights organization in Baghdad went on to say that Islamic State forced hundreds of civilians in the town of al-Wafa, to leave their homes and threatened anyone who didn't leave their house with murder.
"The families, including women and children, were left in the desert despite the extreme cold weather." The organization reported that 10 children have died in the desert so far.
