Mass grave of ISIS victims found in Iraq’s Mosul

Iraq’s security forces have found a new mass grave containing ISIS victims in Mosul city.

Iraqi forces defeated ISIS in Mosul in July 2017 after intense battles that reduced the city to ruins.

A security source said in press remarks that a mass grave containing remains of 37 people was found in Ayn al-Tamr city in western Mosul.

The source further told the National Iraqi News Agency that most of the bodies are of Iraqi women, who were executed by the hardline Sunni group during its capture of Mosul.

“The bodies were moved to the forensic medicine department in Mosul,” the source added.
