ISIS burns 19 Yezidi girls to death in Mosul

AhlulBayt News Agency – Extremist terrorists of the ISIS on Thursday executed 19 Yezidi girls by burning them to death, activists and eyewitnesses reported.

The victims, who had been taken by ISIS terrorists as sex slaves, were placed in iron cages in central Mosul and burned to death in front of hundreds of people.

“They were punished for refusing to have sex with ISIS militants,” local media activist Abdullah al-Malla said.

“The 19 girls were burned to death, while hundreds of people were watching. Nobody could do anything to save them from the brutal punishment,” an eyewitness said in Mosul.


According to officials of the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG), ISIS fighters in Iraq and Syria continue to hold about 1,800 abducted Yezidi women and girls.

The United Nations has cited allegations, based on Yezidi officials’ estimates, that as many as 3,500 people remained in ISIS captivity as of October 2015.

“Many of the abuses, including torture, sexual slavery, and arbitrary detention, would be war crimes if committed in the context of the armed conflict, or crimes against humanity if they were part of ISIS policy during a systematic or widespread attack on the civilian population,” the HRW said. “The abuses against Yezidi women and girls documented by Human Rights Watch, including the practice of abducting women and girls and forcibly converting them to Islam and/or forcibly marrying them to ISIS members, may be part of a genocide against Yezidis.”

Sts. Nunilo and Alodia, pray for us.

St. Lawrence of Brindisi, pray for us.

    This is just sickening!!! And, as long as this kind of thing continues to happen, I hope I NEVER become hardened to it. How can anyone believe that Islam is a peaceful religion or that we can or should try to “dialog” with these people? Why can’t we DO something to stop these barbarians???

  2. albizzi says:

    I truly don’t understand why the iraqui governmental forces helped by the NATO coalition forces who seem slowly but certainly to gain over the ISIS since many weeks couldn’t take at least a few prisoners among the ISIS djihadists in order to immediately expose them as war genocidal criminals in the front of the world’s media during a highly mediatized trial.
    I suspect there is something bizarre and unusual.

  3. JARay says:

    I do agree that there should be a public trial for war-crimes but where…? And who would be the Judge(s) and the Jury?
    What punishment would/should, be meted out?

  4. Kerry says:

    Gen. James Mattis has said some things about the ‘burners’.

    And yet what’s the talking point for the Vatican this past week, women deacons?

  6. SanSan says:

    Where is the world outrage? Praying for these poor souls killed by demons but brought to life by our loving and compassionate God. Lord have mercy. Everyone, post this on your facebook page so more may find out about this abomination. Thank you.

    JARay, International Criminal Court, The Hague?

  8. APX says:

    “They were punished for refusing to have sex with ISIS militants

    And I have faith they have been rewarded in ways we cannot fathom in this life for the decision they made.

  9. St Donatus says:

    Why do you think the main stream media has continuously exaggerated and harped on the few sinful acts that have been committed by a very few Catholics, while totally ignoring great evil that continuously comes forth from islam? At the same time, why would the MSM promote every immorality against God, many of which are also despised by islam and yet they seem to be allied in there efforts to destroy Christianity around the world. It is like Hitler sending out spies to destroy his enemies from the inside while sending out soldiers to fight them openly. What entity could be so smart that he can put together such an evil alliance? Satan the father of the lie.

  10. AnnTherese says:

    Praying for families of these women, and all who daily live in terror of being harmed, tortured, killed. Praying also for Orlando today. Praying for healing of the personal, societal, and religious wounds that unleash such hatred and violence.

  11. Gratias says:

    Thank you Father Z. This outrage had been kept silent by the mainstream American media. And then of course ISIS terrorist attacks in Orlando.
