ISIS terrorists have kidnapped hundreds of civilians, mostly women and children, as they attempted to escape Hawija city in Kirkuk governorate, a security source said on Wednesday.

In a press statement, the source asserted that the terrorists are using the civilians as human shields to halt the advance of Iraqi forces.

This comes as the Iraqi forces are preparing to recapture Hawija from ISIS terrorists after completely ousting the terror group from Nineveh governorate.
