    Iraq executed a dozen death row jihadists on the order of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, his office said Friday, in retaliation for the Islamic State group’s murder of eight captives.

    The executions on Thursday came shortly after Abadi ordered the “immediate” implementation of the death sentences of hundreds of convicted jihadists in response to the killings by IS.

    “By order of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi, 12 terrorists sentenced to death (whose appeals were exhausted) were executed on Thursday,” a statement released by Abadi’s office said.

    More than 300 people, including around 100 foreign women, have been condemned to death in Iraq and hundreds of others to life imprisonment for membership of IS, a judicial source said in April.

    ...Most of the convicted women are Turkish or from former Soviet republics, while a Russian man and a Belgian national are also on death row.

    Yet the right is under the impression that Trump destroyed ISIS...

    Ok. That doesn't make any sense though. I think that's why there was a low voter turn out. When you can't live in your village because half are family members of someone in IS then it doesn't look like they have been wiped out at all.
