ISIS Executes 19 Women For Refusing Sex

| by Maura Turcotte

ISIS fighters allegedly executed 19 girls after they refused to have sex with them, reports the Daily Mail.

Held hostage in the Iraqi city of Mosul, which the Islamic State took last June in a seize, the women denied to "participate in the practice of sexual jihad," Kurdish official Said Mimousini explained. Although brave, their refusal ultimately led to their executions, according to the Express.

Additionally, horrific reports of the the terror group’s sex trade have recently emerged, including images of the Islamic State’s sex catalogue. The price list shows older women being sold for incredibly less than younger girls, with baby sex slaves selling for around £100, the Express documents.

“The girls get peddled like barrels of petrol . . . One girl can be sold and bought by five or six different men,” United Nations envoy Zainab Bangura explained, according to the Daily Mail. "Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom."

The pamphlet reveals the extent of the regime’s cruel treatment of women. The document refers to abducted women as “items” and even discusses how a decrease in the demand of “women and cattle” affects the success of Islamic State, the Daily Mail documents.

“They [ISIS] have a machinery . . . They have a manual on how you treat these women. They have a marriage bureau which organizes all of these ‘marriages’ and the sale of women . . . They have a price list,” Bangura said of the terror group that rules over four million people, reports the Daily Mail.

While it is estimated that thousands of Iraqi women have been forced into sex slavery, a few lucky ones have managed to escape from the grips of ISIS and have shared their horrific stories.

"He raped me about five times a day. My sister was barely 14 when they raped her. I could hear her screaming but I couldn't do anything as I was tied up,” one Yazidi woman said of her ISIS captors, documents the Express. "He told me he was going to rape me that same day, however ill I made myself. He took me home, tied up my hands and feet, and raped me."
