Interviewees said that even if the women were already married, the militants chose not to believe in their marriage because the women had no kids to prove it. One escaped Yazidi said that in the prison in Mosul that she was held at, she saw girls as young as 12 and 13 being taken as brides.
"They asked 'Where are you taking them?' [ISIS fighters] said, 'Don't worry, we will feed and take care of them. We will take them to a base to teach the Quran, how [to] fight, and how to be jihadists.'"
The captives had to sleep on top of one another without any beds or blankets.
