An ISIS fighter believed to be a German national, who goes by the name of Abu Assad Almani on Facebook, posted images of two Yazidi women with a caption “She is for sale.” One of the images shows a young girl, believed to be 18 years old. The second woman is believed to be in her early 30s. “To all the bros thinking about buying a slave, this one is $8,000,” Almani wrote on his Facebook page on 20 May. After posting the second image, he wrote: “This one a pale young face with weepy red eyes, she is also about $8,000.”
After putting up the “For Sale” post, the ISIS fighter then goes into a deep discussion with commenters about whether the $8,000 is a “good price or not.” The discussions on his page largely were divided with one group mocking the looks of the women, while another chiding Almani for posting pictures of women who weren’t wearing the veil. The photos were taken down within hours by Facebook. The ISIS fighter who posted the image on Facebook has been identified as a German national, who had fled the country to join the Islamic State in Syria and is believed to be operating out of Raqqa.
