The Islamic State’s jihadist creeps continue to rape Yazidi girls and sell them off on apps. Now they are tightening their grip on their over 3,000 sex slave captives to prevent their escape.
In this other report, the mostly teenage sex slave survivors discuss how jihadists murdered their families and then raped them over and over again, before selling them off to other jihadists who abused them in the same manner and then resold them again.
Another article, in the New York Times reported on how “ISIS enshrines a theology of rape. In it, were revolting descriptions about how Islamic State fighters go about committing these crimes against humanity as a religious duty.”
That’s the torture that Yazidi girls who are forced into sex slavery are enduring.

The fighters are assassinating smugglers who rescue the captives, just as funds to buy the women out of slavery are drying up.
The thousands of Yazidi women and children were taken prisoner in August 2014, when IS fighters overran their villages in northern Iraq with the aim to eliminate the Kurdish-speaking minority because of its ancient faith. Since then, Arab and Kurdish smugglers managed to free an average of 134 people a month. But by May, an IS crackdown reduced those numbers to just 39 in the last six weeks, according to figures provided by the Kurdistan regional government.
Mirza Danai, founder of the German-Iraqi aid organization Luftbrucke Irak, said in the last two or three months, escape has become more difficult and dangerous.
“They register every slave, every person under their owner, and therefore if she escapes, every Daesh control or checkpoint, or security force – they know that this girl … has escaped from this owner,” he said, using the Arabic acronym for the group……
