A state of warped justice has seen four women stoned to death after they were raped by ISIS militants.
The victims who were caught by ISIS militants being abused in the city of Mosul by their fellow fighters.
These women were then brought before a sharia court which ordered their ‘public execution by stoning’ without giving second thoughts to the victims or their abusers. The four women were stoned in front of a large crowd.
In Islamic sharia law, married men and women who are promiscuous can be stoned to death. Those unmarried can be whip-lashed.
Spokesman of the Nineveh media center, Raafat Zarari reports
”The women were arrested on Wednesday during a raid by ISIS jihadis. The jihadis claimed to have captured the women while committing adultery.”
As a method of execution, stoning has been reported all too frequently in areas controlled by Islamist groups especially across the middle east. Places include ISIS-controlled Iraq and Syria and the Taliban territory in Afghanistan.
Speaking on the issue; Media activist Abdullah al-Malla Syrian press agency ARA News said:
‘The four women were most likely exposed to sexual abuse at the hands of ISIS militants before being driven out of their homes and transferred to the Sharia Court.
‘Apparently, the victims had been raped by ISIS jihadis and then stoned to death on charges of committing adultery.’
