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.
