A shocking report by the UN has sounded the alarm over the DAESH-ISIS atrocities against Iraqi minors, saying they are subject to systematic abuse.
According to the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child, Takfiri militants sell abducted kids at markets as sex slaves, or kill them by crucifixion or burying them alive.
It also says the terrorists use children under the age of 18 as bombers or human shields including those with disabilities.
Most of the victims are from minority groups like the Izadi Kurds and Christian communities.
The UN body has expressed deep concern at the torture and killing of children, warning that the scope of the problems is huge.
Thousands of civilians have been killed and many more displaced since DAESH-ISIS overran northern Iraq in June.
