"Unearthing Atrocities: Mass Graves in territory formerly controlled by ISIL" [Irak]

Between June 2014 and December 2017, the 'Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant' (ISIL) seized large areas of Iraq as part of its so‐called Caliphate, leading a campaign of widespread violence and systematic violations of international human rights and humanitarian law - acts that may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity, and possibly genocide under international criminal law.1 Todate, over two hundred mass graves, a legacy of ISIL's terror, have been discovered in areas formerly controlled by ISIL. They contain the remains of thousands of victims, the majority of whom may never be identified. These large‐scale crime scenes are sites of harrowing human loss, profound suffering and shocking cruelty.
