ISIS har tatt mange hundre yezidikvinner/jenter og behandler dem som sex-slaver, ifølge en ny rapport fra Human Rights Watch.


After detaining the Yazidis, the Islamic State systematically separated young women and teenage girls from their families, New York-based Human Rights Watch said in a report that also came out on Sunday.

“The Islamic State’s litany of horrific crimes against the Yazidis in Iraq only keeps growing,” said Fred Abrahams, a special adviser at HRW. The group documented 366 Yazidis who were being held captive but also said some detainees reached by phone reported that the number was more than 1,000. The Iraqi government said that 1,500 women were detained during the advances in the Sinjar area, which is also home to Christian and Shiite minorities.

Det engelskspråklige ISIS-tidsskriftet Dabiq skryter av at de fordeler kvinnene blant krigerne:


One 15-year-old girl interviewed after she had escaped told the group that the Palestinian Islamic State militant she had been sold to bought her for $1,000.

The women and children were divided among fighters according to Islamic law, the Islamic State magazine, called Dabiq, said.

“The enslaved Yazidi families are now sold by the Islamic State soldiers,” it continued. The article argued that although Christians and Jews can be offered the chance to pay a tax or convert, Yazidis, as polytheists, can be enslaved if captured during war.
