ISIS Is Running A ‘Sex Slave Dealership’ In A NATO Country
Islamic State is selling Yazidi girls and women in an underground sex slave market in Turkey, according to a report by Germany’s broadcast service ARD.
According to the report, the underground black market is based in the Turkish town of Gaziantep, close to the Turkish-Syrian border.
“IS [Islamic State or ISIS] offers women and underage children in a kind of virtual slave market with for-sale photos. … The transfer of money, as the reporter discovered, takes place through a liaison office in Turkey,” reports German station NDR (NDR is part of the German ARD media consortium).
The sale of the girls and women follows a sort of auction pattern, with the highest bidder winning. According to the reports, prices for the women can go as high as $15,000 to $20,000 each. After bidding, the money is transferred through middle men in Turkey, eventually reaching ISIS coffers.
“Some of those women and girls have had to watch 7-, 8-, and 9-year-old children bleed to death before their eyes, after being raped by ISIS militia multiple times a day,” says Mirza Ismail, chairman of the Yazidi Human Rights Organization-International, speaking on the plight of Yazidi girls in the hands of ISIS.
