The ISIL Takfiri terrorists have executed another group of Sunni people in Iraq's western province of Anbar, tribal sources say.
"Daesh (ISIL) executed last night (Saturday) 67 members of the Albu Nimr tribe including children and women," said Naeem al-Kaud, a senior leader the Sunni Albu Nimr tribe, using an Arabic acronym for ISIL.
The official added that the victims were among around 200 tribal captives held by the Takfiris in the town of Ras al-Maa, north of Anbar.
"The 125 others also face the threat of death," he stated.
More than 300 people have been executed since the massacre of Albu Nimr tribesmen began in the middle of last week, according to tribal authorities.
The latest mass killings come a day after the terrorist group similarly executed 85 Sunnis from the same tribe.
The ISIL's killings of Sunnis have brought into question some media reports that the situation in Iraq is a sectarian conflict between Shias and Sunnis.
Anbar Province, which borders war-ravaged Syria, has been a major stronghold of the ISIL elements and continues to be largely controlled by the terror group.
The ISIL terrorists also control large areas of Syria's east and north. The group first sent its militants into Iraq in June, seizing large parts of land along the border between the two countries.
They have been carrying out horrific acts of violence, including public decapitations and crucifixions, against Iraqi communities such as Shias, Sunnis, Kurds and Christians.
