A picture has been released by the Sun UK showing an ISIS sex slave allegedly being auctioned by the terror group to bidders in Saudi Arabia.
The horrifying discovery was revealed when a jihadi was killed while fighting at the town of Al-Shirqat, an ISIS stronghold taken over by the group two years ago.
Members of the Iraqi Popular Mobilisation Units, a state-sponsored militia that helps fight ISIS recovered the Jihadist's mobile phone and found a picture of a sex slave market taken in Saudi Arabia. It comes as a surprise to the Western world, given that Saudi Arabia is part of the international coalition fighting ISIS alongside the UK and US even though it's believed in some quarters that wealthy Saudis have sponsored the terror group for years.
“Our investigation officer was appalled at the set of images involving what we believe to be an Iraqi Yazidi (an ethnic minority in the region) woman taken as sex slave. Images were of the auction in Saudi Arabia of the woman and sexually explicit materials of the fighter and the woman in a hotel. Location data was observed on the image file as enabled by default on many smart phones.
"Further images involved ISIS members in Iraqi areas occupied by ISIS including Mosul and Baiji which indicates this fighter has been with ISIS for a long period of time as Baiji was liberated by us months ago."
We are engaging with our Yazidi members to find the family of the woman, location and health status," the spokesman added. We hope to liberate her and all Iraqi women taken as sexual slaves by ISIS within Iraq or outside of Iraq as their basic human rights are being denied. We cannot allow this, as the force dedicated to the defence of Iraqi citizens."
