This is just heartbreaking. The woman in this photo is one of the 3,000 or so girls and women kidnapped by the ISIS extremists in Iraq. Eight-months pregnant, she has issued a heartrending plea to be killed rather than forced into marrying one of her abductors.
Her name is Nisreen, she is 17 years old and she was seized by the Islamic State forces who have carved out a state of their own in Iraq and Syria, spreading terror and panic as they go. Desperate, Nisreen made a brave phone call. She said: “If they see me talking to someone they will kill me for sure, maybe kill all of us”.
She said that she was one of 96 Yazidi girls and women kidnapped when their villages fell to the terrorists and added that she knew “this exact number because I hear them talking”. Now the captives wait in terror to be either sold into slavery or be forced into marrying their captives. And here is plea:
We are sure they have sold us. We do not fear for our lives but for our dignity as women. Let those jets come to bomb us and save us from this situation by killing all of us.
She’d rather die than “be forced off with a strange man”. Well, if anyone wondered what hell on Earth might look like, look no further. (Scroll down for the video.)
