The leader of the Sunni Albu Nimr tribe says the ISIL Takfiri militants have besieged around 5,000 members of his tribe in Iraq’s violence-plagued western province of Anbar.

Sheikh Na'eem Gu'ood said on Tuesday that his fellow tribesmen are surrounded by ISIL members northeast of Ramadi, which is located about 110 kilometers (68 miles) west of the capital, Baghdad.

He added that many of those under ISIL siege are women and children, and are in dire need of humanitarian aid.

Over the past two months, ISIL terrorist have executed hundreds of members of the Albu Nimr tribe in Anbar.

On December 6, Gu'ood said ISIL Takfiri militants had abducted and massacred 16 Albu Nimr tribesmen three days earlier.

Tribal members discovered their bodies in a water well after searching a location about 10 kilometers (6 miles) north of the town of Hit.

Iraqi medical sources said the bodies bore bullet wounds in the head and chest.

Anbar Province, which borders war-ravaged Syria, has been a major stronghold of the ISIL elements and continues to be largely controlled by the terror group.

Iraqi army soldiers, backed by volunteer forces, have been fighting the ISIL for several months now.

The ISIL militants, who have seized swathes of land in Iraq and neighboring Syria, have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations and crucifixions, against all communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians, in both Arab states.

Iraqi authorities have repeatedly blamed Saudi Arabia and a number of Riyadh’s Persian Gulf allies for extending financial and logistical support to the terror campaign in Iraq.
