She told her interviewer that "though she wants to die but at the same time she she has a ray of hope to be saved and meet her parents."

She also revealed that the ISIS militants have abducted around 40 girls and women, between the age group of 12 to 30 and "they are raped and physically abused the entire day and night, by different men."

A 14-year-old Yazidi girl, who managed to escape from the clutches of ISIS and reunited with her family members also revealed the harrowing tale of "beatings, pressure to convert to Islam, and limited food rations."

She told Washington Post, "I was given to an overweight, dark-bearded man about 50 years old who seemed to have some high rank. He went by the nickname Abu Ahmed. He kept telling me to convert, which I ignored. He tried to rape me several times, but I did not allow him to touch me in any sexual way. Instead, he cursed me and beat me every day, punching and kicking me. He fed me only one meal per day."

An Amnesty International had reported that ISIS has captured thousands of women and girls, as "brides for jihadis" from Iraq and Syria reportedly in in Bardoush prison in central Mosul.

"They are also given the choice of conversion or death", it said.

Yazidi literally means "worshippers of God."

Many Yazidis are seeking the answers of where are their women and daughters and why they have been enslaved.
