Just when you think ISIS can’t get any more heinous, the extremists always manage to outdo themselves. According to a report by The Associated Press, the militants have been using smartphone apps like Telegram and WhatsApp to post for-sale ads promoting the sex slaves they’ve captured.
“Virgin. Beautiful. 12 years old. Her Arabic is weak. Her price has reached $12,500 and she will be sold soon,” read one of the disturbing ads seen by The Associated Press.
The majority of the sex slaves are Yazidi women, some of whom have been in ISIS captivity for almost two years after the extremists stormed Mount Sinjar in Iraq and abducted women and children and brutally killed the men.
The tactic comes as the group is losing ground amid airstrikes by the U.S. and coalition forces. “They register every slave, every person under their owner, and therefore if she escapes, every Daesh control or checkpoint, or security force — they know that this girl … has escaped from this owner,” Mirza Danai, founder of the German-Iraqi aid organization Luftbrucke Irak, said, using an alternative name for the terror group.
