According to officials, ISIS is selling human organs to help fund their terror crusade in Iraq.
The United Nations Security Council was urged by Iraq to investigate the horrifying allegations following the discovery of dozens of bodies with surgical incisions and missing body parts in mass graves near Mosul over the past few weeks. Iraqi Ambassador Mohamed Alhakim said on Tuesday that he believed doctors were being executed for refusing to harvest body parts and participate in the disturbing exchange.
The alleged fundraising method is just one of the ways the extremist organization funds its operations. They also reportedly sell oil, smuggle antiques and demand ransom money for hostages. The terror organization reportedly brings in $2 million per day.
Alhakim specifically accused ISIS of “crimes of genocide," as they reportedly target certain ethnic groups.
