The so-called 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' (ISIL) takfiri group has detained 230 Iraqis over the last two days for organizing anti-ISIL protests in Iraq’s western Anbar province, a provincial official said Sunday.

“Thirty people were detained by the terrorist group on Sunday in the western town of Al-Rutba following raids on their homes,” Emad al-Duleimi, a local official, said.

He said the latest spate of detentions had brought the total number of people detained since Saturday for organizing anti-ISIL demonstrations to 230.

A US-led anti-ISIL coalition, he added, “has not acted to save those being held by the militant group from a possible massacre”.

“Local residents want to rise up against ISIL, but they don’t have the resources -- especially weapons -- to fight the terrorists,” he said.

Iraq has suffered a severe security vacuum since June of last year, when ISIL overran Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city located in the northern Nineveh province.

Although ISIL has since lost several parts of the Nineveh, Diyala and Saladin provinces, it remains in control of Mosul, along with several parts of next-door Syria.
