Former ISIS Yazidi Sex Slave Begs UN To Wipe Out Islamic State, Recounts Her Horrifying Gang-Rape To World Leaders

Former ISIS Yazidi Sex Slave Begs UN To Wipe Out Islamic State

A former Islamic State sex slave, 21-year-old Nadia Murad Basee Taha, recounted her experience being gang-raped until she blacked out while being held captive by militants. Taha, a Yazidi woman, was taken from her home in Iraq and tortured for three months at the hands of ISIS. The woman says Yazidi women are treated as “war booty” and sold into sexual slavery as a means to “guarantee that these women could never lead a normal life again.” Now the former ISIS captive is begging the United Nations to wipe out the Islamic State and save the Yazidi people from genocide.

The Daily Mail reports that Nadia Murad Basee Taha, 21, was taken from her home in Iraq along with other women and children in her community when ISIS entered her village. The woman says that she was taken by bus from her home to Mosul by the militants in the most humiliating fashion. She says that the men on the bus violated and touched the women.

“Along the way, they humiliated us. They touched us and violated us. They took us to Mosul with more than 150 other Yazidi families. In a building, there were thousands of Yazidi families and children who were exchanged as gifts.”

Once in Mosul, things did not get better for the captives. Taha says that the Yazidi women and children were taken to a compound with other Yazidi families where they were sold or traded as gifts. She recounted the moment the first man approached her. The man was “huge” and “looked like a monster” to Taha and she begged that he choose someone else. She says that when another smaller man approached, she begged him to take her so that she wouldn’t be given to the larger man.

“I cried. I cried out, I said ‘I’m too young and you’re huge’. He hit me. He kicked me and beat me. And a few minutes later, another man came up to me. I still was looking at the floor. I saw that he was a little bit smaller. I begged him. I implored him for him to take me. I was incredibly scared of the first man.”

According to Reuters, the woman went with the man and was forced to serve as part of his military faction. She tried to escape but was captured by guards. As punishment, the man beat her and told her to get undressed. He then placed her in a room with the guards who gang-raped her until she blacked out.

“That night he beat me. He asked me to take my clothes off. He put me in a room with the guards and then they proceeded to commit their crime until I fainted.”

The horrifying acts of rape and violence leave the women scarred, according to Taha, and are used as a means to ensure that the Yazidi women are unable to “lead a normal life again.” She says the only way to save the Yazidi people is to wipe out ISIS completely.

“I implore you, get rid of Daesh (Islamic State) completely.”

Fortunately for Taha, she was able to escape captivity by ISIS after three long months of torture and made her way to Germany where she now lives. Taha isn’t the first Yazidi woman to speak out about the unthinkable crimes committed against them while in ISIS captivity. The video below contains the stories of a number of different women who were raped and abused by Islamic State militants.

As the Inquisitr previously reported, young women aren’t the only victims of rape crimes. A 9-year-old little girl became pregnant after being captured by ISIS militants and raped, a fate of many young children and women who are captured by the militant groups.
