According to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, in the past few weeks, ISIS has “distributed” to its rank and file about 300 female members of the persecuted Christian, Yazidi minorities. Those Christian and Yazidi women were initially kidnapped in Iraq before being taken to Syria.

SOHR says it could confirm at least 27 cases in which women were “sold and married” for about $1,000 each to ISIS militants in Aleppo and Raqqa suburbs and Al-Hassakah in Syria.
