Islamic State militants have reportedly fed a starving mother the meat of her own three-year old boy whom she had not seen since being kidnapped by the militants some months back.
Vian Dakhil, one of the Yazidi community members recently interviewed by Politico, made the revelation last week in Kirkuk, Iraq—just one of the many harrowing stories told by women who were freed by the ISIS after their abduction.
Dakhil said one of the mothers recounted to her that after she and her children were kidnapped by ISIS militants, she was separated from her two children—a two-year-old boy and another who is five years old. For two days under ISIS detention she was not given any food. When she asked for food, the militants gave her a plate of rice with meat. But after she finished eating, to her utter horror the militants told her that what she had just eaten was the meat of her own three-year-old son, the Christian Post reported.
" I don't know what can I do — I'm eating my son," the horrified mother told Dakhil.
The Daily Mail also told a similar story shared by another former ISIS captive, Yasir Abdulla from West Yorkshire, who travelled to Iraq to join hundreds of other Kurdish forces to fight the ISIS.
Abdulla reportedly came to know of a woman who went to Mosul to secure the release of her kidnapped son.
The ISIS militants initially offered tea to the woman, and then a meal of meat and rice. But when she demanded to see her son, the extremists reportedly burst into laughter and told her, they had murdered her son, chopped him and fed him to her.
Dakhil said another mother also told her how she was also forced to watch her 9-year-old daughter raped to death by the extremists.
"This is what happened with those woman under ISIS control and nobody cares,'' said Dakhil. She then blamed US President Obama for his inaction over the rising atrocities against women and Christians.
Yazidis, Christians, and other minorities have reportedly suffered greatly under the rule of the self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate, which has seized a large territory across Iraq and Syria.
The Yazidis now feel "abandoned" by the US government, she said.
To help fellow Yazidis, Dakhil said she and her sister, Deelan are planning to set up a US-based charitable foundation to raise money for Yazidi refugees.
As many as 2,200 Yazidi women and girls have been kidnapped by ISIS and are being used a sex slaves, reports said. Another 420,000 Yazidis are reportedly living in refugee camps. They include thousands of orphans who have no home, according to the Christian Post.
The report said the last large-scale rescue operation made to save Iraqi Yazidis was made way back in August 2014, when thousands were rescued after they got trapped on a mountainside while being pursued by ISIS fighters.
