Reports: Unsuspecting Yazidi sex slave was fed her own child by ISIS

A particularly horrific story has emerged out of the genocide ISIS has been perpetrating against the minority Yazidi population of northern Iraq.

Vian Dakhil, an Iraqi Parliament member who is also Yazidi, has reportedly revealed on television how a starved ISIS sex slave had been tricked into eating her own child, notes the New York Daily News.

The Sun quotes the lawmaker as saying, "One of the women we managed to retrieve from ISIS said that she was held in a cellar for three days without food or water. Afterwards, they brought her a plate of rice and meat, she ate the food because she was very hungry."

Dakhil continued, "When she was finished they said to her: 'We cooked your one-year-old son that we took from you, and this is what you just ate.'"

This is one of the numerous atrocities that ISIS is said to have committed against the Yazidis since the Islamic extremists began targeting the group in 2014 over religious differences.

Foreign Affairs magazine reported earlier this month that the number of estimated casualties could be as many as 5,000 Yazidis killed and more than 6,000 kidnapped, but these figures have not yet been confirmed by the UN.
