A former ISIS sex slave has revealed the harrowing moment she was picked by a giant jihadi brute from a group of terrified Yazidi women – as they screamed and vomited in terror.
Nadia Murad, 25, has spoken in shocking detail of her experiences at the hands of ISIS sex traffickers – who treated women as ‘animals’ touching them wherever they pleased.
Writing in her autobiography, the now Nobel peace prize winner, spoke of her experiences one night at a slave market.
She said: “We could hear the commotion downstairs where militants were registering and organising, and when the first man entered the room, all the girls started screaming.”
The entrance of the men would terrify the women who, Murad says ‘would double over and vomit on the floor’.
They would then ask if the women were virgins to which the vendor would reply ‘of course.’
Murad’s autobiography, which is featured in The Guardian today, recalls in harrowing detail this examination process.
She says: “The militants touched us anywhere they wanted, running their hands over our breasts and our legs, as if we were animals.”
Eventually Murad was sighted from among the crowd by a high-ranking militant named Salwan – a man she claims ‘looked like a monster’.
His strength was daunting, she claims.
Murad said: “He could crush me with his bare hands. No matter what he did, and no matter how much I resisted, I would never be able to fight him off. He smelled of rotten eggs and cologne.”
The terror of this jihadi brute became so overwhelming that she eventually threw herself at a smaller man – begging him to take her.
The man, who was a judge in Mosul, agreed.
Murad had found herself at the hands of ISIS sex traffickers after her home village of Kocho in Sinjar, northern Iraq, was attacked.
She was captured alongside her sisters and lost six brothers and her mother.
Eventually Murad was able to escape her ISIS captors, smuggling herself out of Iraq.
She later went as a refugee to Germany in early 2015.
This year’s Nobel peace prize was awarded to her alongside two others.
Outlining the reason for the decision, the committee said: “she has shown uncommon courage in recounting her own sufferings and speaking up on behalf of other victims.
“Nadia Murad is one of an estimated 3,000 Yazidi girls and women who were victims of rape and other abuses by the IS army.
