ISIS = ISIL = IS = DAESH. All names for Islamic terrorists known for committing violent crimes against humanity around the world – even against fellow Muslims. They are the cause of Syrian citizens mass exodus from their homeland.
The world knew about young sex slaves Daesh kidnaps and forces into marriages or continuously rapes until the woman crave death rather than live this way. The Telegraph relates:
Last year, one 17-year-old girl, part of a group of about 40 Yazidi women who were still being held captive and sexually abused on a daily basis by Isil fighters, told how they were raped on the top floor of the building, up to three times a day, by different groups of men.
“Our torturers do not even spare the women who have small children with them. “Nor do they spare the girls – some of our group are not even 13 years old. Some of them will no longer say a word.”
Now, we learn the fate of women who fall under Daesh authority but do not appeal to them sexually – women over 40 up through grandmother age. The Telegraph informs: they are shot and tossed with their belongings into mass graves that have recently been discovered. God rest their souls.
