Les forces especials kurdes de l'Iraq rescaten una noia sueca segrestada per l'IS

Marlin Stivani Nivarlain, de 16 anys, estava segrestada per l'Estat Islàmic (IS) prop de la ciutat iraquiana de Mossul. El 17 de febrer el Grup Contra Terrorista de les forces de seguretat kurdes van dur a terme una operació per alliberar-la. Avui el Consell de Seguretat de la Regió del Kurdistan ha anunciat que el rescat es va realitzar amb èxit i la noia és ara acollida per les autoritats kurdes que proven de refer-la a nivell sanitari. La setmana passada l'IS va fer pública una llista amb els noms d'un milers de persones assassinades pel grup.

A Swedish teenage girl was rescued from the Islamic State (IS) group near the Iraqi city of Mosul by Kurdish special forces last week, the security council of the semi-autonomous Kurdish Regional Government said in a statement on Tuesday.
“On 17 February 2016 special forces from the Directorate General of Counter Terrorism … rescued a young Swedish woman near ISIL-occupied Mosul,” the council said in a statement, using an alternative acronym for IS.
Kurdish authorities named the girl as 16-year-old Marlin Stivani Nivarlain. They said she had been “misled” by an IS member in Sweden to travel to Syria and later Mosul, the group’s main stronghold in Iraq.
Swedish authorities have not commented on the case but they did ask for assistance from Kurdish forces, according to the council’s statement.
Nivarlain is currently being looked after in the Kurdish region of Iraq and is being “provided [with] the care afforded to her under international law.”
Kurdish authorities will transfer her to Sweden “once the necessary arrangement are put in place,” the council said.
IS seized control of Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, in June 2014. Since then the group has expanded into Syria and established a self-styled caliphate with its headquarters in the Syrian city of Raqqa.
The group has caused consistent outrage with elaborate acts of violence, including the filmed executions of British and American hostages.
Regular reports have emerged from Mosul of public executions of those condemned by the group for violating its hardline laws or alleged to have spied for Western governments or Kurdish groups.
Last week IS released a list of more than 1,000 names of people the group says it has executed in 2015.
