Yazidi Women in ISIS’S Pris­ons

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS - By Has­san Shin­gali

A large num­ber of Yazidi women have been sex­u­ally ha­rassed, raped and killed. Still thou­sands of them es­pe­cially girls and chil­dren are in the hands of the ISIS. Af­ter they ran to the moun­tains for shel­ter and se­cu­rity, they have been caught by the ISIS. Yazidi fam­ily mem­bers have been sep­a­rated from one an­other; women, girls and chil­dren on one side and men on the other. The women and girls are taken to Tala­far and Mo­sul by the ISIS and are put in pris­ons, and the men have been killed.

Kojo and Hatme are two of the Yazidis com­plexes in Shin­gal that have been cap­tured by the ISIS. They are turned into pris­ons. Dur­ing a call to one of the girls in one th­ese two pris­ons, she said that they do not know where they are. She added: "There are hun­dreds of girls here and each 10 min­utes they rape a girl."

Mak­ing sev­eral at­tempts to call the pris­on­ers who can still use their cell phones, we could fi­nally get in touch with one of them and she said that the ISIS took us from the moun­tain and sep­a­rated us from our men, we don’t know ex­actly where we are but the only thing that we know is that we are alive but dead in­side."

Demon­stra­tion are be­ing held among the Yazidis who have fled from the Mount Shin­gal de­mand­ing em­i­gra­tion to other coun­tries be­cause they say that they can­not live in Kur­dis­tan any longer. The Kur­dis­tan Re­gional Gov­ern­ment has done ev­ery­thing in its power to help the Yazidis.
