A German doctor said a Yazidi girl held captive by the Islamic State (IS) terrorists set herself on fire, severely burning 80 percent of her body, in a desperate attempt to stop jihadists from raping her, the Christian Post website reports today (February 29, 2016).
Doctor Jan Lihan Kizilhan heads a project that has helped bring over 1,100 women and girls victimized by the militant group to Germany to help heal their physical and emotional wounds through a project started in 2014 which is run by the German state Baden-Wurttemberg.
Kizilhan said he has personally been told over 1,400 horrifying stories of how the barbaric terrorist group has brutally raped and abused religious minority girls and women who were captured and sexually enslaved.
Kazilhan told of one 8-year-old Yazidi girl who was sold eight different times as an IS sex slave and was also raped hundreds of times by IS fighters in a span of 10 months. He added that the horrors of IS sex slavery are so bad that one girl even set herself on fire to defend herself from being repeatedly raped by the terrorists.
