This week, the mankind, it would appear, has lost all its remaining sanity. As we are still trying to come to terms with the horror in Pakistan's Peshawar and the chilling siege in Sydney, there are reports about another heinous crime executed by the Islamic State, who have beheaded 150 women for not marrying militants.

Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights says some of the women were pregnant

The Islamic State has executed at least 150 women for refusing to marry militants in Iraq, The Independent, quoting Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights saying in a statement, reported on 17 December

A statement released by Iraq's Ministry of Human Rights on Tuesday said the militants had attacked women in the western Iraqi province of Al-Anbar before burying them in mass graves in Fallujah.

"At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage," the statement said.

"Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats."

The Independent, saying it's currently trying to verify the said reports, further reported that the executions comes close on the heels of the incident when the extremists shot dead at least 50 men, women and children in a tribe massacre in Iraq last month

The attack against the Al Bu Nimr tribe took place in the village of Ras al-Maa, north of Ramadi, the provincial capital. There, the militant group killed at least 40 men, six women and four children.

A senior tribesman said they were lined up and publicly killed one by one. An official within the Anbar governor's office corroborated the tribesman's account, according to The Associated Press.

ISIS has waged war not just against the people of Iraq but also against the west as it was seen in the several beheading videos published by the terrorist group in the last few months
