A new report according to the UN says at least 18,800 civilians have been murdered, more than 3.2 million people displaced as a result of the crisis and some 36,245 others injured in Iraq between Jan 2014 and October 2015, meanwhile more than 3000 people are still held as slaves under Isis captivity in Iraq.
The ISIS terrorist group continues to brag about their widespread violence and killings that result to sadistic and barbaric crimes against humanity and mankind.
According to the UN Assistance Mission in the country, those being held as slaves by Isis are mostly women and children and come primarily from the Yezidi community. ISIS have also continued to subject these women and children to sexual brutality,especially in the form of sexual slavery.
“ISIS continues to commit systematic and widespread violence and abuses of international human rights law and humanitarian law. These acts may, in some instances, amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity, and possibly genocide,” the UN report says.
ISIS have committed “gruesome public spectacles, including by shooting, beheading, bulldozing, burning alive and throwing people off the top of buildings”, it continues.
The report documents multiple examples of acts of wickedness carried out by the group in Iraq against Christians.
