FALLUJAH, Iraq (Christian Examiner) -- ISIS terrorists executed 150 women and girls for refusing to marry jihadist operatives this week. Some of the women were pregnant, and all of the bodies from the massacre were thrown into mass graves, according to reports.
News of the slaughter came from Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights. The Islamic terror organization is responsible for persecuting religious minorities like Christians, making child soldiers as young as 10 years old, beheadings and various other human rights abuses across the Middle East, according to the U.N.
"At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage," Iraqi officials said in a statement. "Many families were also forced to migrate from the province's northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats."
ISIS aims to create an Islamic state throughout the region free of Western influence, and the violence has increased in recent months. Earlier in December, Canon Andrew White, pastor of St. George Anglican Church in Baghdad and known as the "Anglican vicar of Baghdad," revealed atrocities against Christians in the region.
"ISIS turned up and they said to the children, 'you say the words that you will follow Muhammad.' The children, all under 15, four of them, they said, 'no, we love Yasua [Jesus],'" he recounted to the Christian Broadcast Network. "We have always loved Yasua. We have always followed Yasua. Yasua has always been with us."
"[The Militants] said, 'say the words!' [The Children] said, 'no, we can't do that.' They chopped all their heads off," he said.
"How do you respond to that?" White asked. "You just cry. They are my children. That is what we have been going through. That is what we are going through."
Just last month, ISIS forces killed 98 people from a Sunni village. Despite the fact that the Al Bu Nimr tribe of the Anbar Province holds the same beliefs about the creation of a state under Islamic law, they were viewed as a threat, Breitbart.com reported. Two days later militants stormed the tribe again and killed another 50 people.
The terrorists continue to fight for control in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Egypt and Libya.
