A woman who has been kept as a prisoner of the ISIS jihadists somewhere in western Iraq after being captured by ISIS militants in early August this year contacts the Kurdish Peshmerga forces. A group raising awareness of ISIS’ persecution of women in the vast swathes of the Middle East under its control said the woman had contacted Kurdish peshmerga fighters by telephone to plead for the brothel to be bombed to put the women held as sex slaves out of their misery.
She allegedly told the fighters she had been raped so frequently that she plans to commit suicide even if freed.
According to a Kurdish man who reported this story to the BBC described the woman as crying on the phone, quoting her 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.’
