ISIL Burns Mother, 4 Children in Iraq


A security source in Iraq’s Kirkuk reported on Friday that ISIL terrorists set fire on a mother and her four children under the pretext of leaving the “land of the Caliphate.”

Media reports confirmed that ISIL militants arrested the family, composed of a mother, three girls and one boy, on Himreen highway, and burnt them in front of other displaced civilians.

ISIL terrorists occupied swathes of territories in Iraq in 2014, yet the Iraqi army and security forces, backed by the mobilization troops and allies, managed in 2015 and 2016 to confront the takfiri group’s advance and liberated most of the militant-held areas, except Mosul which witnesses fierce battles to regain it.
