Yazidi women

Two years after what has been defined as a “mass extermination”, at the hands of the Jihadists of the so-called “Islamic State” (IS), thousands of Yazidis, an ethnic religious minority in northern Iraq, are still in the hands of the men of the Caliphate who force women into sexual slavery and children into fighting in their ranks in the name of Islamic Jihad, even if they are of a non-Muslim faith. According to the UN, about 3200 Yazidi women and children are still held hostage by the IS while thousands more men and adolescents have “disappeared”.
