Jacqueline Badcock said on Thursday the decree was issued to residents between 11 and 46 years old living in and around the city of Mosul. The decree would potentially affect four million women and girls, she said. "This is something very new for Iraq, particularly in this area, and is of grave concern and does need to be addressed," she said during a news conference from Erbil. "This is not the will of Iraqi people, or the women of Iraq in these vulnerable areas covered by the terrorists."
