MOSUL: Islamic State bandits have reportedly executed 19 women for refusing to have sex with fighters.

A media official with the Kurdistan Democratic Party in Mosul, who spoke to Iraqi News website, said the woman were put to death for refusing “sexual jihad.”

Mimousini told the site his sources also confirmed there’s been a recent split in the ranks over payment and the distribution of captured women as sex slaves.

Tens of thousands of women and girls have been abducted by ISIS fighters and trafficked for sexual slavery, prostitution or ransom, rights groups have confirmed.

In some cases girls have been forced to undergo hymen reconstruction surgery so they can be re-trafficked as virgins.

Some women have been so traumatized that they have committed suicide.
