Kurdish fighters in Iraq have discovered a mass grave containing the remains of about 25 members of the Izadi community murdered by ISIL terrorists in the northwestern part of the country.

Local official Myaser Haji Saleh said on Monday that the Peshmerga forces found the mass grave on Sunday as it was filled with the remains of “men, children and women… who were killed by” the extremist group.

According to Peshmerga fighters, the grave located near the town of Sinune, was found during a search for explosives that the ISIL often leaves behind.

“Our forces were searching for explosives and mines planted by (ISIL) in the area and found the grave during the search,” an unnamed Peshmerga lieutenant colonel said.

He added that the Takfiri militants had shot dead some of the victims and "slaughtered" others by knives.

The ISIL terror group started its campaign of terror in Iraq in early June 2014. The heavily-armed militants took control of the city of Mosul before sweeping through parts of the country’s Sunni Arab heartland.

The terrorists have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations, against all Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, and Christians.

The Iraqi army, backed by pro-government tribes, Shia volunteers and Kurdish Peshmerga forces, has so far managed to make significant gains in the fight against the terrorists. However, important territory, including three major cities, is still in the hands of the militants.

In early January, five mass graves were found in northern Iraq, which contained some 320 bodies belonging to ISIL victims.
