12yo Yazidi girl uses sleeping pills to escape ISIS. A 12-year-old girl and her 17-year-old aunt had managed to escape from their Islamic State captives by spiking their captors tea with sleeping pills. The girls had asked their guards to give them sleeping pills to help them get off to sleep, then, they put the medicine in militants’ tea and secured their escape after they fell asleep.
Women held captive are often kept as sex slaves, while those who refuse are killed.
“At least 250 girls have so far been executed by IS for refusing to accept the practice of sexual jihad, and sometimes the families of the girls were also executed for rejecting to submit to IS’s request,” Said Mamuzini, a Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) official from Mosul, told BasNews. ..
A UN report published in January stated that Islamic State forces are holding around 3,500 people as slaves in Iraq, the majority of whom are women and children from the Yazidi community.
The terror group argues that capturing Yazidi women is justified because they are not Muslims. According to a pamphlet released by Islamic State at the end of 2014, members are permitted to have sex with Yazidi women …
According to the UN, Islamic State jihadists have abducted thousands of women and girls as young as 12 years old, selling them as sex slaves or giving them to fighters as rewards.
