"The youngest girl I examined was 8 yrs old. And she was about eight months in the hands of ISIS. She was sold 10 times. That means in the period of 8 months she was raped hundreds of times, every day." Psychologist Dr.@janilkiz, a trauma specialist from #Germany#YazidiPlight pic.twitter.com/ZrInIapAEA

ISIS took the Yazidi town of Sinjar in 2014 and ordered the women to be sold as sex slaves and asked the men to convert or face execution.
ISIS consider Yazidis to be devil worshippers because they worship a peacock deity.
The town of Sinjar which is 120 km from Mosul the erstwhile ISIS-stronghold, saw a horrific massacre at the hands of ISIS fighters in which Murad’s family including 6 brothers and her mother were murdered.
The Yazidis are a non-Muslim majority-Kurdish-speaking religious group which lives in northern Iraq.
The Yazidi community has a long history of being persecuted as infidels by Muslim rulers who wanted them to convert.
Another Yazidi girl Ekhlas spoke about the horrors she faced as a 14-year-old sex slave repeatedly sold and bought until she fled when her captor was out fighting.
