An Iraqi woman killed a senior ISIS commander who had been holding her captive and forcing her into sexual slavery for several months, according to reports in Iraqi and Kurdish media.
According to a senior Kurdish official, the woman – who some reportsidentified as a member of the Yazidi-Kurdish minority – killed the senior terrorist on Saturday in the northern Iraqi province of Nineveh, west of the ISIS-controlled city of Mosul.
In an interview with Arabic-language al-Sumaria TV, Kurdistan Democratic Party spokesman Saeed Mamouzini identified the ISIS commander as a jihadist known as “Abu Anas.”
Mamouzini claimed Abu Anas was killed three months after forcing the woman to “marry” several men under his command – a reference to the temporary Islamic “marriages” enforced by ISIS on captive non-Muslims, which essentially amount to religiously-sanctioned rape.
According to ABNA news agency, the report surfaced just days after an unspecified number of “non-Iraqi” women were transported by ISIS into Mosul for use as sex slaves, under a direct order by ISIS leader Abu Bakral-Baghdadi.
