BAGHDAD — Officials on Saturday announced that ISIS extremists executed 50 people belonging to a Sunni tribe in Iraq’s Anbar province. this is the latest atrocity committed by the Islamic terrorists.

The incident took place late Friday in the village of Ras al-Maa, north of the provincial capital of Ramadi. According to Anbar councilman Faleh al-Issawi, 50 men, women and children were reportedly lined up and shot to death by ISIS terrorists.


The ISIS Militants had accused the men and women of the Al Bu Nimr tribe of retaliating against them after being displaced from their homes when the group seized the Anbar town of Hit last month, al-Issawi said.

“These killings are taking place almost on a daily basis now in the areas under the control of the Islamic State group and they will continue unless this terrorist group is stopped,” al-Issawi told The Associated Press.

An official in the Anbar governor’s office confirmed the death toll. He spoke on condition of anonymity because he is not authorized to brief journalists.

On Thursday, authorities found the bodies of 48 Sunni tribesmen killed by the Islamic State group in Anbar.

ISIS has seized large territories within the Anbar province as it seeks to expand the caliphate. Currently the group has taken almost one-third of both Iraq and Syria.

Officials within both the Iraqi government and Coalition forces fighting the Islamic State have repeated the important role the Sunni Iraqi tribes must have in the fight against ISIS since they are able to penetrate areas inaccessible to airstrikes and ground forces.
Last month alone over 1,2oo Iraqis were killed in violence, that number is expected rise in the month of November.
