“Temporary marriages”

Reports claim 250 women refusing forced marriage executed by ISIS

IBT reported this week that 250 women were executed by ISIS in the northern Iraqi city of Mosul in Nineveh province for refusing “temporary marriage” or sexual jihad (jihad al-nikah).

“At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to IS’s request,” Said Mamuzini, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official from Mosul, told ABNA 24.

The city of Mosul has been under ISIS control since 2014. There, women are not allowed to go out alone and required to remain fully covered at all times while in public.
