ERBIL, Kurdistan Region- A report by the Nineveh police department on Islamic State (ISIS) crimes in Mosul says that up to 837 women have been executed by the extremist group since its takeover of Mosul.

Commander of the Nineveh police Zanuon al-Sabawi, said at a press conference that the women have been executed in various forms.

According to al-Sabawi, most of the women victims were former candidates to the Iraqi parliament , provincial council members, and public employees.

He added that municipality workers and staff members of the election commission were also among those executed by ISIS.

The women and other victims of ISIS of the local population are believed to have been sentenced by the extremists' Sharia court that has condemned to death for alleged charges of disloyalty to the caliphate, espionage or un-Islamic behavior.

The group has also been responsible for killing and enslaving hundreds of Kurdish Yezidi women in Shingal and parts of the Nineveh plain.

My thoughts go to the arabs towns and entire populations who suffer daily under ISIS' extremism and the constant threat of indiscriminate attacks and airstrikes from Iraq, Assad, Russia, Iran and their likes. They are silent because ISIS won't let them speak but make no mistake that these people are the number one victim of ISIS' atrocities. Their largely undtold stories will be heard and explained in the future when they get the chance to tell what happened under ISIS where no media could reach.

what thing which you had never thought before the ISIS did and will do in future if they remain in its territory I do not know where they bring these torment and who advise them to do these barbaric bad act for instance, we have seen before that that Jordan's pilot was burnt by them despite of not do this ct in the world except Allah because just he can do it for disbelievers. so I ask Allah every Muslim avoid from fanatic group INSHA ALLAH

This kind of systematic abuse of women is symptomatic of a deep and widespread dis -ease with the feminine the resides in all of us; in the universe. It is a cancer that will kill the body it inhabits..
