(Iraq Now News)- ISIS women fighters.

Baghdad (IraqiNews.com) Thirty Islamic State women members had blew themselves up during battles with the group in western Mosul, according to a senior Iraqi commander.

Twelve others had been arrested recently and referred to justice, according to Sabah al-Noaman, spokesperson of the army’s Counter-Terrorism Service.

He said those arrested lately included French, German, Chechnyan, Iranian, Moroccan and Tunisian nationals.

Noaman said that security forces had managed to convince only two women not to proceed with suicide bombings, while attempts with the other 30 were futile.

Iraqi government forces recaptured western Mosul early July, consummating the takeover of the whole of Islamic State’s former capital after more than eight months of battles.

Iraqi military officials were recently quoted in news reports saying that more than 1300 women and children of Islamic State fighters had surrendered to the troops in Tal Afar late August.

The captives included Russian, Turkish and central Asian nationals, according to the officials.

IS has notoriously relied on women members to act as vigilantes on civilian females at areas under their control and also as fighters on the field.

As U.S.-backed Iraqi operations realized victory in Mosul, many female militants were believed to either have died or fled to other group strongholds in Iraq and Syria.
