Islamic State bandits have reportedly executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with fighters.
A media official with the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Mosul, who spoke to English-language Iraqi News, said the woman were put to death for refusing “sexual jihad.”
Said Mimousini told the site his sources also confirmed there’s been a recent split in the ranks over payment and the distribution of captured women as sex slaves.
ISIS last year issued a pamphlet detailing the worth of their female captives, based on an apparent influx of sex slaves to sell.
According to the pamphlet, women between 30-40 years old sell for $75, and girls up to nine years old are the most expensive at $172.
“Customers are allowed to purchase only three items,” the pamphlet concludes.
Tens of thousands of women and girls have been abducted by ISIS fighters and trafficked for sexual slavery, prostitution or ransom, rights groups have confirmed.
Survivors have told horror stories of being bought, repeatedly raped then sold to other fighters up to six times.
In some cases girls have been forced to undergo hymen reconstruction surgery so they can be re-trafficked as virgins.
Some women have been so traumatized that they have committed suicide.
“ISIS has introduced and legitimised the practice of sexual slavery on an unprecedented scale,” said a report by Minority Rights Group International and the Ceasefire Centre for Civilian Rights.
One Yazidi girl told activists she was taken to Syria with 350 other girls where they were displayed and sold in the streets “as if in a chicken market.”
ISIS released a video last November showing what appeared to be a sex-slave market.
