Some 354 Yezidi women and girls, who have been taken by ISIS as sex slaves, have been freed by the Iraqi Forces in the recently-liberated city of Fallujah.

“The Iraqi Security Forces (ISF) engaged in liberating Fallujah have managed to free 354 Yezidi women captured by ISIS when it took over the predominantly-Yezidi town of Sinjar in Augustus 2014”, a Yezidi official told Iraqi media.

“All the released women and girls are now at Al-Amiriyah district under the protection of ISF. We are now making the necessary measures to relocate them to Kurdistan”, he added.

The extremist jihadists of Islamic State have kidnapped more than 5000 Yezidi women and children, slaughtered hundreds of men after capturing Sinjar.
