A young Yazidi women reportedly held by ISIS militants spoke via telephone with activists working with Compassion4Kurdistan. Those activists spoke with BBC World Service and said the woman begged for her location to be bombed.

“I’ve been raped 30 times and it’s not even lunchtime. I can’t go to the toilet,” she is quoted as saying.

“If you know where we are, please bomb us… There is no life after this. I’m going to kill myself anyway — others have killed themselves this morning.”

Huffington Post and other media outlets have caught wind of her story.

A recent issue of Dabiq magazine reports enslaved Yazidi families are being sold by ISIS soldiers with women and children being divided. Those who oppose these acts are considered non-Muslim, the report said.

“Enslaving the families of the kuffār [non-believers] and taking their women as concubines is a firmly established aspect of the Sharia that if one were to deny or mock, he would be denying or mocking the verses of the Qur’an… and thereby apostatizing from Islam.”

Newsweek reported that United Nations officials have called the acts of ISIS “barbaric.”

Huffington Post reports that spokeswoman Donatella Rovera with Amnesty International, who is in Iraq, stated she has not been able to verify the claim that woman are being sexually mistreated. Rovera did say, however, there is evidence that woman who have been captured were strongly pressured to convert to Islam and marry ISIS fighters.
