WAIT WHAT? ISIS orders All Women/Girls 11-46 to Undergo Genital Mutilation in Mosul

The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) has ordered all women and girls age 11 to 46 to undergo genital mutilation in the northern Iraq city of Mosul, the United Nations reported Thursday.

“It is a fatwa [or religious edict] of ISIS, we learnt this this morning,” UN official Jacqueline Badcock told reporters via videolink from Irbil.

Four million women and girls could be affected by the fatwa, Badcock told Al Arabiya.

“This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed,” Badcock said.

“This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists,” she added.
