We were in prison in Raqqa for fifteen days.

They [ISIS fighters] behaved like animals.

A man from Saudi Arabia bought me and took me to a house where two other men lived as well.

I begged him to let me be with my sister. He hit me repeatedly on the head with his pistol until I was unconscious.

They didn't take me to the hospital. Instead they took me back to the prison while I was still unconscious.

My sister was sold three days later. I was heart-broken.

But we were reunited later when I was sold along with seven other girls to the same people.

We were kept in a house during the day. Different men would come and pick us up for the night. This went on for five months.

There wasn't enough food and we couldn't wash.

I was sold  once again. This time to a man from Tajikistan.

Two months later he was killed, so I was taken back to prison and then sold again twice.

Then I was given away as a present to a group of jihadists.

I was raped multiple times every night.

They always fastened my legs and arms when they raped me.

Once I tried to run away but they caught me.

As a punishment they didn't feed me for six days and gave me twelve lashes three times a day.

I don't know what they did to my parents and brothers. But my sisters were captured along with me.
