Facing further territorial losses, ISIS says it will kill its Yazidi sex slaves if coalition forces come any closer.

Islamic State is holding the women in a series of homes in al-Hakne, a village on the Tigris river in northern Iraq. Coalition forces have already taken the other side of the river and are threatening the ISIS stronghold.

In recent weeks at least one of the women committed suicide after facing torture and mistreatment, eyewitnesses told Almada newspaper. The 20 year old was raped, made pregnant and miscarried before seizing a gun from a sleeping guard and turning it on herself.

Since ISIS rose to power in this region two years ago it has wantonly taken local women and used them as sex slaves, particularly those from the Yazidi minority. Clarion Project reported numerous times on the mass rapes of women, their sale in sex markets, their distribution as gifts during Ramadan and their suicides and slaughter.
