OVER 600 WOMEN, CHILDREN UNDER ISIL CAPTIVITY, SAY IRAQI OFFICIAL

OVER-600

According to Fars news agency, Masrour Aswad, a member of the High Commission of Human Rights in Iraq, said that international organizations are not paying enough attention to free these hostages.

“We have acquired information that ISIL has jailed some of them in a military base in Mosul, but the federal government of Iraq and organizations are silent,” Aswad said.

The women in captivity are often used as slaves and the children trained for suicide attacks.

He mentioned that they had met with some of the women rescued from ISIL, and they revealed some sensitive information about the whereabouts of many prisoned women in ISIL-controlled territories.

“They have revealed information about the hostages and asked us to conceal their names and profile,” Aswad added.

Additionally, he stated only 11 of the Shiite Turkmen hostages had been rescued from the terrorist group so far.

Hassan Toran, the Deputy Head of Turkmen Front and a member of the parliament of Iraq, criticized international organizations for not making enough efforts to rescue the hostages.

“Before, we had information about those hostages, and we knew that they were alive,” Toran reported.

“But now all our connections are lost, and nobody knows what happened to them,” the Deputy Head continued.

He believes that the government of Iraq must find a solution regarding the hostages especially after they are rescued.
