Disturbing reports claim that ISIS terrorists have taken at least 100 children hostage near the Iraqi city of Mosul.
Takfiri extremists reportedly kidnapped the Shiite and Ezadi children at an orphanage, and the news comes after months of brutal killings in the area.
“Sources have added that hundreds of Ezadi women and girls ‘who were abducted in Iraq have been distributed as spoils of war’ to ISIL militants in recent weeks,” reports PressTV.
It’s not clear what the status of the children is, but based on past experiences with ISIS, their fates don’t look good. On June 10, a similar kidnapping took place in Mosul as well, but on that occasion, it wasn’t children but prisoners who were taken. Those prisoners were forced to get on their knees where nearly 670 of them were shot and killed on the spot.
Reports also say that a spokesperson for Iraq’s Shiite cleric, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani, is pressuring the country’s parliament to open an investigation into the killing of Iraqi soldiers at a Baghdad military base.
