Targeting Iraq’s Izadi Kurds: ISIL Terrorists Selling Captured Izadi Women to Traffickers

Reports coming from northern Iraq suggest that the ISIL Takfiri terrorists are selling captured female Izadi Kurds as sex slaves.

Local Kurdish intelligence sources say the women are being sold to traffickers to work in bordellos across the Middle East.

The sources also say they have received information that the captured women are sold between USD 500 and USD 43,000.

Local residents and witnesses say several women have been forced to marry the ISIL militants.

This comes as al-Qaeda-linked militants have captured thousands of women, including at least 1,200 females from the city of Sinjar.

Thousands of members of the Kurdish minority group have fled their homes after ISIL Takfiri militants attacked them in remote areas of northern Iraq.

The notorious ISIL terrorists have already killed hundreds of the Izadi Kurds and captured their women. The ISIL and its associated militant groups consider them as apostates.

Meanwhile, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) is stepping up aid for thousands of Izadi Kurds taking refuge in the neighboring Syria.

Some 15,000 Izadis are staying in the Newroz camp near the al-Qamishli district of the al-Hasakah Governorate in Syria. The UNHCR is working with local NGOs to supply the refugees with basic humanitarian aid.

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees, Antonio Guterres, has described the situation of the refugees as very dynamic and challenging.

Several local communities in Syria have warmly welcomed the refugees, providing them with food and clothes.

The ISIL terrorists have been committing heinous crimes in the captured areas, including the mass execution of civilians and Iraqi security forces.
