The Islamic State’s horrific rampage continues with their latest act of sheer brutality.
The BBC reports that ISIS killed 45 Iraqis early Tuesday.
Exactly who these people were and why they were killed is not clear, but Col Qasim al-Obeidi said he believed some were members of the Iraqi security forces, the BBC reported. The killings took place near the town of al-Baghdadi in western Anbar province, northwest of Baghdad.
Col Obeidi said a compound that houses the families of security personnel and local officials was now under attack.
He pleaded for help from the government and the international community.
