ISIL Takfiri militants have reportedly abducted nearly 50 people from the Sunni Albu Nimr tribe in Iraq’s violence-plagued western province of Anbar.
The terrorists have kidnapped 46 people from the tribe in Kilo area, situated west of the provincial capital, Ramadi, the Arabic-language news network, al-Mayadeen, reported on Wednesday.
The development comes after ISIL executed at least 36 people, including four women and three children, from Albu Nimr tribe on Monday.
In a statement released on Sunday, the Iraqi Human Rights Ministry announced that at least 322 Albu Nimr people have been killed by the ISIL militants in Anbar Province since last week.
It added that the bodies of 50 women and children were discovered dumped in a well.
According to Iraqi police sources, the ISIL militants have already kidnapped 1,000 members of Albu Nimr tribe, executing a number of the abductees every day. The terrorists do not even spare the infants in executions.
Anbar Province, which borders war-ravaged Syria, has been a major stronghold of the ISIL elements and continues to be largely controlled by the terror group.
The ISIL terrorists also control large areas of Syria. The group first sent its militants into Iraq in June, seizing large swathes of land along the border between the two countries.
They have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
