New report of Islamic State atrocities
August 19, 2014
At a press conference in Paris, the members of a family who recently left Mosul for France spoke of atrocities committed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, the Tunisia Daily reported.
The Sunni jihadist group, which controls much of Syria and Iraq, took control of Mosul, Iraq’s 2nd-largest city, in June.
The family members alleged that over a period of three days, the Islamic State auctioned 700 Yazidi women in Mosul as slaves. Other witnesses, according to the report, alleged that Christian men and boys who remained in Mosul have been forcibly circumcised without anesthesia.
