Récemment, le carnet des horreurs de Daesh s’est à nouveau écrit en lignes de sang. Dans leur bastion de Mossoul, au nord de l’Irak, les djihadistes font la loi. Quand ils demandent aux femmes de dire «oui» à des «mariages temporaires», elles n’ont que deux choix : mourir debout ou accepter l’esclavage.

Au mois d’août 2014 les terroristes ont envahi les terres autour des Monts Sinjar en Irak, habitées par la minorité ethnique de Yézidis. Ils massacraient les hommes en  âge de combattre et vendaient les femmes et les enfants en tant qu’esclaves. Ils séparaient des familles et prenaient de jeunes filles pour leur propre satisfaction sexuelle. Les petits garçons étaient forcés de devenir leurs apprentis. Les captifs ne pouvaient compter que sur leur famille pour venir à leur secours, ces dernières pouvant faire l’objet d’un chantage pour des sommes exprimées en milliers de dollars. Pourtant, le plus souvent la famille survivante ne sait même pas si leurs proches en captivité sont en vie et où ils sont retenus.

Certaines femmes, parmi celles qui ont été asservies, ont réussi à s’évader ou ont été rendues à leurs familles. Elles racontent des histoires terrifiantes sur les atrocités de Daesh dont elles ont été témoins. Bien qu’elles soient en sécurité maintenant, le temps passé en captivité les affecte encore. Beaucoup d’entre elles ont perdu des membres de leurs familles et sont contraintes de reconstruire leur vie dans cette nouvelle réalité, ce qui est pour elles particulièrement pénible.

English:

In August 2014 the terrorists invaded the lands around Mount Sinjar in Iraq, home to the minority Yazidi people. They slaughtered males of fighting age and abducted women and little children to be sold as slaves. They separated families and took young girls for their own sexual gratification, the young boys were forced to become their trainees. The captives have had no one to count on for help but their families, who might be blackmailed for thousands of dollars in ransom. Most of the time, however, surviving relatives never even know if their abducted loved ones are alive or where they’re kept. 1
Some of the women who had been enslaved managed to escape or were returned by their families. They tell harrowing stories of atrocities committed by ISIS that they had to witness. Despite being safe now, they are still severely affected by their time in captivity. Most have lost family members and rebuilding their lives in this new reality is incredibly hard for them.
In this awful situation, one man stood up against ISIS and its reign of terror.  A former smuggler, Abu Shuja, uses his extensive covert network throughout Iraq and abroad, to take back Yazidi captives from ISIS. He organises and takes part in rescue missions, saving the abducted from terrorists and reuniting them with their families. For that, he risks his own life every day. Not only is he in danger of being killed or captured during the operations, he also receives regular death threats; but he still can’t give up, he knows he is the only hope for so many people.+
His courage comes at a price; to protect his family, Abu Shuja has had to part with them and send his wife and children to safety abroad. They are now among the thousands of refugees seeking asylum in Europe and now their lives too depend on the kindness of strangers.
