UNITED NATIONS Cheap Nike Air Vapormax Off White , Oct. 31 (Xinhua) -- The UN Security Council on Friday condemned massive execution of Sunni tribesmen in Iraq's Anbar province by the Islamic State (IS) fighters, a group also known as ISIL which has taken over vast swaths of Iraq.
""This crime, like the Camp Speicher massacre in Tikrit, once again demonstrated ISIL's brutality, clearly showing that terrorist groups in Iraq target all segments and sects of the Iraqi population,"" said a Security Council press statement.
U.S. media has reported that IS militants paraded 40 tribesmen who resisted its advance through downtown Hit, a city west of Baghdad, on Wednesday afternoon before shooting and killing them in front of local residents in the city's central square.
""The members of the Security Council expressed again their deep outrage about all Iraqis as well as nationals of other states who have been killed, kidnapped, raped, or tortured by ISIL, as well as its recruitment and use of children,"" the statement said.
The Security Council also called on the Iraqi government as well as the international community to work toward bringing all perpetrators to justice, said the statement, noting that ""IS must be defeated and that the intolerance, violence and hatred it espouses must be stamped out.""
The statement also condemned the systematic persecution of individuals from minority populations, such as Yezidis and Christians, and those who refuse IS's extremist ideology in Iraq.
""The members of the Security Council reiterated that widespread or systematic attacks directed against any civilian populations may constitute a crime against humanity, for which those responsible must be held accountable,"" the statement noted.
