Human Rights Watch – Iraq: ISIS Escapees Describe Systematic Rape
April 20, 2015
Trigger Warning: Rape and Sexual Assault; Suicide
A new Human Rights Watch report documents a system of organised rape and sexual assault, sexual slavery, and forced marriage by ISIS forces. Such acts are war crimes and may be crimes against humanity. Many of the women and girls remain missing, but the survivors now in Iraqi Kurdistan need psychosocial support and other assistance.
