London: It has emerged that the Islamic State terror group has executed 250 girls in northern Iraq. The reason: the girls had refused to become sex slaves in Iraq's second largest city of Mosul.
London-based Kurdish news agency 'AhlulBayt' reported that the girls were forcefully married to ISIS terrorists and murdered.
Some of the girls were murdered alongside their families, the report said.
Kurdish Democratic Party spokesman Said Mamuzini said the women hailed from Mosul.
"At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to ISIS' request," Mamuzini told 'AhlulBayt'.
An official of the Patriotic Union of Kurdistan (PUK), Ghayas Surchi said women in Mosul were not allowed to go out alone and did not have the right to choose their spouses.
