'Their price would range from $250 to $500'
A captured ISIS fighter has admitted that the wives of Free Syrian Army soldiers, the group most closely aligned with the West’s hopes for Syria’s future, are being seized by ISIS and used as “slave girls.”
The report comes from the Middle East Media Research Institute, which found the recording on the Alaan TV channel of the United Arab Emirates.
The report quotes Abu Al-Mughaira Al-Muhajer, an ISIS fighter captured in Aleppo, who discussed the ISIS practice of rewarding fighters with slaves.
The TV news anchor explained the ISIS fighter, after his capture, discussed “how ISIS emirs used slave girls as rewards for their fighters.”
The ISIS fighter then appears on screen, saying: “Whenever they took captures, they would bring slave-girls, and they would place them on the slave market in Al-Raqqah. Afterwards they would sell them for dollars. Their price would range from $250 to $500.”
He continued: “Then ISIS would buy slave girls and give them as rewards. After I informed on by brother who wanted to leave ISIS, I was rewarded with three slave girls, one from Damascus, two from Homs.”
He said he was told one was Yazidi and two were Christian.
But the women told him that they were wives of FSA soldiers.
He reported ISIS leaders said that didn’t make any difference.
