The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) militants have killed 50 people and taken hostage 200 others on Friday in the central Iraqi city of Ramadi, a tribal source said.
The El-Bunimer Sunni tribe leader Sheikh Naim el-Kaud told The Anadolu Agency that he was concerned about the fate of those taken hostage, among which there are many women.
Kaud requested an immediate intervention of Iraqi central government.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants control large areas of Iraq and Syria. The Iraqi central government and Iraqi Kurdish security forces are fighting ISIL militants since they last took the control of Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, mid-June.
