ISIS Kills 10-Y-O Girl Using Flesh-Ripping Torture Device
ICC Note: ISIS has reportedly executed a 10-year-old girl for stepping out of her home without a male escort. What’s more terrifying, is the medieval device they used to torture and kill her. According to Sputnik Arabi and Daily Mail, Fatan was killed using a metal torture device that rips apart the victim’s flesh. The horrific execution took place in Mosul as liberating forces continue to push further into the city to oust the Islamic State fighters.
02/09/2017 Iraq (Christian Post): The Islamic State’s police force has killed a 10-year-old girl in Mosul using a metal torture device that rips apart flesh as punishment for stepping outside her home unaccompanied by a male family member.
The Russian news outlet Sputnik Arabic has been credited by U.K. news sites as reporting that 10-year-old Fatan was punished by IS (also known as ISIS, ISIL and Daesh) for stepping outside of the threshold of her home in the group’s shrinking Iraqi stronghold while she was cleaning.
In some strict Muslim cultures, it is considered against Sharia law for a female to leave her home without being accompanied by her father, husband or a male relative.
According to the Daily Mail, the mother was asked by police to choose whether she or her daughter would endure the punishment. Because she did not think the punishment would be fatal, she chose her daughter.
A 20-year-old witness who did not disclose her name told Sputnik that after the mother chose the daughter, the police force broke out a medieval-like metal torture device with jaws that rip apart flesh and was allegedly doused with poison.
The device was used to kill Fatan who bled out and died.
The witness explained that young girls in Mosul are more likely to be targeted by IS’ morality police, as the group has strict rules on how women and girls must dress and conduct themselves in public.
“I never felt like I was a human being. Why all of this black clothing?” the witness asked, speaking about being forced to wear a full burqa and gloves. “It’s like I’m getting into a bag and it’s closed on me so I can’t even breathe or enjoy the sun.”
The witness also detailed the story of another woman who died after she received 30 lashes when she was caught lifting the veil from her face to inspect goods at a local market.
