Would killing ISIS journalists be considered a war crime? If so, could ISIS use the ICC?

If ISIS had journalists on the ground in the Battle of Mosul (2016-17) that recently concluded, and they were clearly journalists, and clearly weren't combatants; would their Iraqi enemy be allowed to kill them? Or would that be war crime?

Along with this; what would they be permitted to, and not permitted to, do to them? And would the ICC, in theory at least, allow a group like ISIS to take action against the Iraqis for war crimes committed against these journalists?

Is the ICC open to all sides of a fight who are willing to cooperate? Or, are they more exclusive in terms of who can do what?
