#AceNewsServices – November 02 – Islamic State militants executed 85 members of the Albu Nimr tribe in Anbar Province to the west of Iraqi capital Baghdad in a terror campaign to break their resistance to the Islamic State (IS).
Fifty members of the Albu Nimr tribe were killed on Friday, when tribesmen attempted to flee the site they had been defending for weeks, but had run low on ammunition, fuel and food, one of the tribe’s chiefs, Sheikh Naeem al-Ga’oud, told Reuters.
Later, a mass grave with 35 bodies of civilians was found in the same area, a security official revealed.
Since the Islamic State terror campaign against tribes began in the middle of the last week, over 300 people have been executed.
They were shot at close range and dumped in mass graves, Ga’oud and security officials said.
