The vast areas in Syria and Iraq which came under the control of ISIS in 2014 are dotted with grim reminders of the Islamist group’s brutality. The AP
reports that a comprehensive survey by the news agency, using satellite
imagery, excavations, mapping, and survivors testimony, has identified
seventy-two mass graves in Syria and Iraq – containing up to 15,000
bodies — and that many more such graves will be discovered as the
U.S.-led coalition is pushing ISIS back and shrinking the territory under the group’s control.
