ISIS fanatics have executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with its fighters, a Kurdish official has said.

He claimed the women were being held hostage in Islamic State's stronghold of Mosul, Iraq, which the terror group seized in June last year.

Meanwhile a UN envoy investigating Islamic State's vile sex trade has said 'girls get peddled like barrels of petrol' and one can be bought by six different men.

She also verified a disturbing ISIS document which suggested the extremists sell the Yazidi and Christian women and children they have abducted, with girls aged just one to nine-years-old fetching the most money.

ISIS stormed the Sinjar district in northern Iraq last year and captured hundreds of women belonging to the Yazidi community, who the Islamists view as heretics.

The sex slaves who somehow escaped Islamic State's clutches have told of how they were forced to marry fighters who physically and sexually abused them. 

It is not known whether the 19 women executed - supposedly just a few days ago - were Yazidis or not.

They were put to death because they refused to 'participate in the practice of sexual jihad,' a spokesman for the Kurdish Democratic Party in Mosul told Iraqi News

Said Mimousini also claimed issues around money and the distribution of women have caused a rift within ISIS's ranks.

In October, the terror group released a pamphlet which showed how much it charged for the purchase of its female captives.

ISIS'S DESPICABLE 'PRICE LIST' FOR YAZIDI AND CHRISTIAN SLAVES 

A translated version of the document (left) was shared online by humanitarian and peace prize winner Dr Widad Akrawi, and reads as follows:

We have received news that the demand in Women and Cattle market has sharply decreased and that will affect Islamic State revenues as well as the funding of mujahideen in the battlefield, therefore we have made some changes. Below are the prices for Yazidi and Christian women.

The price for Yazidi or Christian women between the age of 40 - 50 is $43 (£27)

$75 (48) for 30 to 40-year-olds

$86 (£55) for 20 to 30-year-olds

$130 (£83) for ten to 20-year-olds

$172 (£110) for one to nine-year-olds

Customers are allowed to purchase only three items with the exception of customers from Turkey, Syria and Gulf countries. 

Dated and sealed by ISIS in Iraq October 16, 2014.

Its authenticity was debated until April, when the UN's special envoy for sexual violence in conflict confirmed it was genuine during a trip to Iraq. 

Zainab Bangura told Bloomberg: 'The girls get peddled like barrels of petrol... One girl can be sold and bought by five or six different men. 

'Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom.'

The shocking document described the women it abducted as 'items' and claimed a decrease in demand of 'women and cattle' affected 'Islamic State revenues as well as the funding of mujahideen in the battlefield'.

It then gives the prices of women and children by age, with one to nine-year-olds costing the most - around £110. The older the women, the lower the price.

The pamphlet - published on October 16 - goes on to say: 'Customers are allowed to purchase only three items with the exception of customers from Turkey, Syria and Gulf countries.

Bangura said the fighters get to choose first and then 'wealthy Middle-Easterners are allowed to 

The UN envoy has previously said the best looking Yazidi virgins are sent to depraved slave auctions in Islamic State's adopted capital of Raqqa in Syria, where they are stripped naked and sold to the highest bidder.

They have a marriage bureau which organizes all of these ‘marriages’ and the sale of women... They have a price list 

She said Islamic State, which controls over four million people living inside its territory in Iraq and Syria, is unlike any other terror group.

Bangura added: 'They [ISIS] have a machinery... They have a manual on how you treat these women. They have a marriage bureau which organizes all of these ‘marriages’ and the sale of women... They have a price list.'

An ISIS video released in November last year appeared to show an ISIS 'sex slave market' where fighters can choose among different Yazidi girls who are priced according to 'desirable' physical features.

Since then, several women who managed to escape their abusive captors have told of the pain and suffering they endured under ISIS rule.

Only last month, three Yazidi women who were forced to become jihadi said they were raped 'five times a day' after being traded as human cargo.

The young women - Bushra, 21, Munira, 17, and Noor, 22 - were tied up, gang raped and burnt with cigarettes after being forced to marry ISIS fighters. Their names have been changed to protect their identity.

After escaping Iraq, the women were flown to the UK by international charity AMAR, which helps people rebuild their lives following conflict. 

Bushra, who tried to kill herself when she was sold to an ISIS extremist, said: 'The man who had bought me took me to hospital.

He raped me about five times a day... My sister was barely 14 when they raped her... I could hear her screaming but I couldn't do anything as I was tied up
Bushra, former Yazidi sex slave 

'He told me he was going to rape me that same day, however ill I made myself. He took me home, tied up my hands and feet, and raped me.

'He raped me about five times a day. My sister was barely 14 when they raped her... I could hear her screaming but I couldn't do anything as I was tied up.'

Thousands of women and girls from the Yazidi community - an ancient Kurdish ethnic group based in the north of Iraq - have had their lives shattered by ISIS fighters, Amnesty International has said.

The organisation says hundreds, and possibly thousands, have been forced to marry, 'sold' or given as 'gifts' to Islamic State fighters or their supporters - and many held as sexual slaves are girls younger than 14.

Amnesty's researcher Donatella Rovera spoke to more than 40 women who were fortunate enough to escape ISIS captivity in Iraq.

She discovered that some of these abused women and girls were so severely and irreparably traumatised that they have been driven to end their own lives.

Where's the US outrage over man's inhumanity to men, women and children?

Do you think men committing atrocities against others, especially women and children is new??

Do you think genocide, rape, child soldiers and slavery is something new?  It has never stopped, not once in the history of humanity.

Go ahead and wave your magic wand and stop all the cruelty and slaughter from happening.  Hopefully yours works better than mine because mine sucks.

i'd like to know that too....media is more concerned with telling people to give a shit about a flag and lion...you have an answer?  Where is the USA outrage, and why isn't the media reporting on this like the flag and lion?  That is the point here, not wand waving.

Believe me, I understand your frustration.  

However, I've been around now for a number of decades and have learned that realistically speaking, the US, no one can stop human cruelty and depravity.  As a matter of fact, the US has often participated in it.

  I think its important to keep shining a light on it, as bright a light as possible because knowledge as painful as it may be sometimes is important to dispel ignorance and nothing can ever be done if we turn a blind eye- it should never be acceptable but I think realistically speaking, the US's world policeman days are long gone and were never really here to begin with, especially considering our own hypocrisy.  Until humanity as a whole rises up and says "NO MORE!", there will always be people who will do whatever they wish to others.

On a side note, this is happening because women around the world are still largely considered at best second class citizens and at worse, nothing more than disposable property.    Half of the world's population is largely marginalized and the worst part about it is women are too often their own worst enemies.

thank you for being able to articulate what I feel exactly - it is so heartbreaking and it has gone on forever and probably will go on.

That is so sad. Nothing changed. Once we pulled out of Iraq, it went back to the way it was when Saddam ruled.

Whenever I see "where is the outrage? " here, I have to ask "How do you know that there is no outrage?

We ARE over there trying to wipe out ISIS. There was recently the death of one of their leaders thanks to the US.

What woukd you want us to do ,those of us here at CM?   What kind of "outrage" do you expect from US? What can We do? 

ANd what about the genocide in other countries? many more are dead than 19. How about the fact that water is polluted in many countries in Africa and kiling many more kids  than the number 19  you mentioned in your OP? This is happening in many areas of the world, did you know?

ANd there are many many young girls who are being used and abused by sex traffickers in our country and some of them die.MAybe more than 19.

SO?

and i meant media outrage, as in how they report about other things in the US, as i mentioned...and yes there is outrage, but it is not heard by msm...yes, i agree- what about the kids here being used? occasionally theres a sting/bust we'll hear about for a couple days, then the story fades out....i just don't like the way things are portrayed as 'important' when the real matters at hand,  are not.

This is horrible. 1-9 year olds fetch the most money? I hope to God they aren't raping babies!

We aren't doing enough for these victims. I agree with you, the lack of media coverage is bizarre.
