ISIS slave rescue

The heroes risking their lives to free ISIS sex slaves subjected to rapes, stonings and whippings

Women and young girls held as sex slaves by depraved Islamic State militants are fleeing their captors with the help of a heroic underground network of resistance fighters.

Risking certain death and torture in a bid to flee their brutal oppressors, many spend several days making their way through Syria and Iraq to the safety of government-controlled territory.

Many of them have been subjected to appalling violence, rape and sexual abuse at the hands of ISIS fighters and commanders.
