ISIS is forcing captive women to donate blood for wounded members, according to Independent
The British Independent newspaper revealed a new crime being committed by terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and al Sham (ISIS) against women held captive by the terrorist organization. The newspaper’s correspondent Heather Saul said in an article published Tuesday that Yazidi women who were captured and held by ISIS in Iraq, who have been already taken as sex slaves, are also being forced to donate blood “to save the lives of wounded fighters.” Saul relied on testimonies of Yazidi women and girls that were captured by ISIS terrorists from northern Iraq, as a Yazidi teenager, identified only as Hamshe, described how women are forced to detonate blood for transfusions. The 19-year-old girl, who managed to escape after being held by ISIS for 28 days, according to the Independent, said that her husband, father-in-law and brother-in-law were killed, and she was detained, and that when a terrorist took her to his house and locked her inside his room. He then warned that he would deny her food or water if she refused to marry him. Describing the time when ISIS overran their area in northern Iraq, Hamshe said “I can never forget when they separated the men and women from each other.” “It was very painful to witness women and girls being taken as war spoils…They forced the Yazidi girls to donate blood to ISIS wounded fighters,” the Independent quoted Hamshe as saying. “Which God allows these acts? she wondered. Another 21-year-old survivor recalled seeing women being repeatedly raped and tortured by ISIS terrorists. “I saw babies separated from their mothers. Some children were five and six years old when they were taken from their families…They killed our fathers, uncles and everyone. There is no horror I haven’t experienced. There is nothing worse than rape,” she said. She narrated how a terrorist leader took a young girl to his house to rape her, saying “One of the leaders took a 13 year-old girl to his house, locked the room and told his children she is a Yazidi girl who converted to Islam, that he will teach her how to pray and read the Koran. In fact he was raping her during that time. She told me she was there for three days and said ‘I was raped all that time’.” In a statement issued late last month, Amnesty International said the sexual abuses committed by ISIS members against abducted women, including from Iraq’s Yazidi minority, are driving these women to end their lives. The statement said Yazidi women and girls forced into sexual slavery by ISIS have committed suicide or tried to. Many of those held as sexual slaves are children girls aged 14, 15 or even younger, Donatella Rovera, Amnesty’s senior crisis response adviser, said in the statement.
