Iraqi officials in Iraq’s western province of Anbar have discovered a mass grave near the provincial capital of Ramadi.
The town was cleared of ISIS fighters in January, and ISIS prisoners led officials to the burial site, which contains 40 bodies, 6 of whom have been identified.
Although Ramadi is a predominantly Sunni town, during the ISIS occupation of the area tribes with a history of fighting the terrorists were heavily targeted, and ISIS sought to eliminate potential resistance.
The discovery is yet another reminder that ISIS target Muslims of any denomination, as well as other ethnic minorities and dissenters.
