An Iraqi mother speaks of the torture she and her family endured at the hands of ISIS militants. Her large family was reportedly forced out of their home only to be murdered by an unforeseen explosion. The family lost 17 members with the mother and one of her sons being the only survivors. The drastic measures by ISIS to keep control of Mosul are proving horrible for the innocent civilians there.

4/5/2017 Iraq (Christian Post) – Islamic State terror group soldiers have reportedly tortured and killed 17 members of a large family in Mosul, Iraq, the distraught mother who survived the attack said.

The woman, who wasn’t identified, told local news channel AlMawsleya TV that IS radicals ordered the members of the family to leave their house and wait in line one by one, after which they killed them all.

“We didn’t realize and, all of a sudden, a bomb exploded on my family, killing all of them – 17 people from my family were gone,” the woman said, with an English translation provided by Daily Star on Monday.

“May God protect their bodies. I want to know which bodies are which. I don’t want anything else,” she added. “My son is 3 years old and my daughter is disabled. My older son, their father and his brothers, their grandmother, their spouses. I just want them.”
