ISIS Executes 19 Girls For Refusing Sex With Its Fighters
ISIS fury does not seem to cease. Recent reports suggest that 19 women have been executed by ISIS who refused to have sex with its militants.
The roots of these 19 women is not yet known: they might or might not be Yazidis. Their only crime was to refuse to ‘participate in the practice of sexual jihad,’ a spokesperson for the Kurdish Democratic Party in Mosul told Iraqi News.
The women were held captive in Iraq’s Mosul, the strong ground of ISIS which was captured by the Muslim terror group in June 2014.
“Girls get peddled like barrels of petrol” said an UN envoy investigating the sex trade of ISIS. She continues to say that the ISIS extremists also sell these abducted Yazidi and Christian women and children adding that girls aged nine-years fetch the maximum price. There can be multiple buyers for a particular girl.
A pamphlet released by ISIS In October showed the prices for purchasing female captives.
Humanitarian and peace prize winner Dr Widad Akrawi had translated and tweeted out this price list.
Here’s the enlarged version, with an approximate conversion to Indian Rupees.
