Captured ISIS Fighter Talks about Use of Slave-Girls as Rewards for Fighters

Abu Al-Mughaira Al-Muhajer, an ISIS fighter captured in Aleppo, talked about the practice by ISIS of buying slave-girls and handing them out to fighters as rewards. In an interview, broadcast on September 22 by the UAE-based Alaan TV channel, he recounted that he had been given three supposedly Yazidi and Christian slave-girls, and that he had later complained to his emir after realizing that they were the wives of FSA fighters.

Following are excerpts

News caster:: The Al-Sham Front in the Aleppo area has captured a group of ISIS fighters. One of them is Abu Al-Mughaira Al-Muhajer, a fighter from Aleppo. He talked about how ISIS emirs used slave-girls as rewards for their fighters. Let's watch.


Abu Al-Mughaira Al-Muhajer:: Whenever they took captives, 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. The Islamic State would buy slave-girls and give them as rewards. After I informed on my brother who wanted to leave ISIS, I was rewarded with three slave-girls - one from Damascus and two from Homs. All of them had been beaten on their backs. They told me that the girl from Damascus was a Yazidi, and that the two girls from Homs were Christians. They told me that they had been captured, but it turned out that they were wives of FSA fighters from the Islamic Front. So I went to the emir and told him that they were not slave-girls or anything. He admitted that they were wives of FSA fighters, but said that they too needed to be captured.
