 ‘Acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale’ perpetrated in Iraq —UN

About 1,600 civilians were killed and at least 1,400 others wounded last month, according to figures provided by Iraq Body Count and UN’s mission to the country.

Between January and August 2014, at least 10,000 people have been killed and as many wounded in Iraq.

Islamic State Terrorists

However, the figures do not include hundreds of Yazidis murdered by the IS terrorists.

“Last week, the UN said it had received reports of at least 650 male inmates of Badouch Prison in Mosul being shot dead by IS militants on 10 July. Witnesses and survivors said inmates claiming to be Sunni were taken away, while Shia and members of other religious or ethnic communities were ordered into ditches and killed, BBC reported.

‘Ethnic Cleansing’ and Mass Displacement

Reports from Iraq “reveal acts of inhumanity on an unimaginable scale,” says the UN Human Rights Deputy Commissioner.

The terrorists that run the so-called “Islamic State,” formerly known as ISIS/ISIL, and their allied Sunni insurgents  have taken control of large parts of northern and western Iraq, committing “systematic and intentional attacks on civilians” that include targeted killings, forced conversions, slavery, sexual abuse, and the besieging of entire communities.

“Thousands of people have been killed, the majority of them civilians, and more than a million others have been forced to flee their homes,” said the report.

There is “strong evidence” that international human rights and humanitarian law is being seriously violated in areas under IS control, said the UN Human Rights Commission.

“Christian, Yazidi, Turkmen, Shabak, Kaka’i, Sabeans and Shia communities had ‘all been targeted through particularly brutal persecution’ and that IS had ‘ruthlessly carried out what may amount to ethnic and religious cleansing,'” said the report.

“Many have been killed directly; others have been besieged and deprived of food, water or medication, said the UN Deputy Human Rights Commissioner.

“Hundreds of thousands of civilians from these communities have fled to remote and desolate locations where unconfirmed reports indicate that scores of children, elderly people and people with disabilities have been dying as a result of exhaustion and deprivation.”

Sex Slaves

At least 2,250 Yazidi women and children are being held hostage by IS terrorists. Most of the female hostages have been allotted as slaves to IS fighters, said the report.
