Iraq’s Ministry of Human Rights has reported that 150 women were killed by ISIS militants after refusing to marry terrorists. 


The Ministry made the following statement Tuesday: "At least 150 females, including pregnant women, were executed in Fallujah by a militant named Abu Anas Al-Libi after they refused to accept jihad marriage. Many families were also forced to migrate from the province’s northern town of Al-Wafa after hundreds of residents received death threats."


According to the group, the women were buried in mass graves. 


No other details have been released about the executions.
