Daesh Takfiri militants have executed six women in Iraq’s embattled northern province of Nineveh as the terrorist group continues perpetrating crimes on a large scale in the areas under their control.
According to Russia’s Sputnik news agency, four Izadi women, who were held as slaves by Daesh, were killed while trying to escape from al-Hadar district of the northern city of Mosul on Tuesday.
Daesh terrorists killed two other women from Mosul, who were working at Nineveh police department, for alleged charges of cooperating with Iraqi army forces, the report added.
Iraqi forces kill 30 Daesh terrorists
Meanwhile, Iraq’s Interior Ministry said that the country’s security forces killed at least 30 members of the Daesh terrorist group in the provinces of Anbar and Diyala, Sputnik reported on Wednesday. The report said that 22 Daesh terrorists were killed in an operation in the city of Hadithah in Anbar.
Eight Daesh militants were killed and two others injured after Iraqi forces destroyed a camp belonging to the militants during an anti-terrorist operation near Baqubah, the provincial capital of the eastern province of Diyala.
