AraNews: ISIS militants execute 600 Yezidis northern Iraq

Erbil, Kurdistan Region – On Friday the so-called Sharia Court of the Islamic State group (IS/ISIS) reportedly executed 600 hostages from the Yezidi community of Shingal (Sinjar) in the Talafar district in northern Iraq.

The group piled the bodies into the well of Alo Antar on al-Ayyadiya highway, local sources reported.

Shahin Shingali, a fighter in the ranks of the Peshmerga forces, stated to ARA News that since Friday the IS radicals transferred nearly 700 Yezidi hostages to Talafar.

WNU Editor: There has been no independent confirmation of this massacre/war crime, but it fits into the pattern on what the Islamic State has been doing to its male prisoners since the start of this conflict.
