A group of Kurdish peshmerga fighters has liberated a group of farms near the city of Al-Tabni in Syria Yesterday and claims to have freed more than 3,000 sheep and 700 goats that were used as sex slaves by the terrorist organization.
The Peshmerga General Command (PGC) has announced this morning that their fighters had liberated three villages previously controlled by ISIS during a ground assault supported by U.S. air strikes.
In one of the villages, they found an “animal brothel” operated by the terrorist group, in which nearly 4000 sheep and goats were used as sex slaves.
PCG Commander, Col. Hemin Hassan, described the horrible conditions in which the animals were detained and abused.
“The sheep and goats were crammed into dozens of small rooms filled with dirty mattresses. There were empty bottles of lubricant and used condoms all over the place.”
According to some civilians who were forced to work in the brothel, some animals were forced to engage in sexual intercourse with more than 100 ISIS fighters per day.
“The place was one of the busiest building in the region. More than 10,000 ISIS fighters visited it every day.”
The animals will now be transported inside Kurdish controlled regions of Syria and be distributed among families of dead Peshmerga fighters.
This isn’t the first time that the Islamic State is linked to bestiality, but it is the first official and operational “animal brothel” linked to the organization to be liberated.
Other suspected animal brothels were found in the liberated cities of Raqqa and Palmyra, but the animals had already been taken to other cities by the Islamists.
Animal Rights organizations estimate that 80,000 to 150,000 animals are currently used as sex slaves in ISIS operated brothels.
The vast majority of these animals are sheep and goats, but some cases involving cows and chickens have also been reported.
