An Islamic State’s (ISIS) fighter captured by Kurdish security forces has admitted killing hundreds of people and raping ‘more than 200 women’ in a sickening interview.
The militant, Amar Hussein, reportedly described how he moved from home to home in Iraq, raping terrified Yezidi women and other minorities.
The captured extremist also talked about how he slaughtered around 500 victims – either beheading them or putting a blindfold on them and firing a bullet into their skull.
However, despite his horrific crimes, Hussein apparently has few regrets, claiming his actions were considered “normal” among the terror group’s ranks.
“We shot whoever we needed to shoot and beheaded whoever we needed to beheaded,” the jihadist, who was captured last October, told Reuters.
The 21-year-old described how he and fellow fighters would take their victims into the desert, where they would sit them down and blindfold them.
“Seven, eight, ten at a time. Thirty or 40 people. We would take them in desert and kill them,” he said. “I would sit them down, put a blindfold on them and fire a bullet into their heads.”
Hussein also reportedly told of how he raped hundreds of women, after being given permission by his emirs to attack as many as he wanted.
He spoke to Reuters from behind bars after being captured by Kurdish forces during an assault on Kirkuk, northern Iraq, four months ago.
The captured extremist has also revealed how he joined the ISIS group aged 14 and went on to join al-Qaeda. He even claimed he is a victim of poverty in Mosul, where he apparently grew up in a broken home and had no-one to give him advice.
