Hussein al-Qaedi, an official responsible for tracing abducted Yazidis in Duhok province, announced that the ISIS is training 1,400 Yazidi children, abducted from their families, to conduct suicide attacks.
Speaking at a news conference, Qaedi also said that 400 Yazidi children who have been displaced from their hometowns in Sanjar and Bashiqa suffer mental and other diseases.
He added that the ISIS has kidnapped 3,770 Yazidis after 2,640 of the abducted population were taken back from the terrorist group in the past two years.
As the ISIL loses control over one city after another in its self-styled caliphate, it is tightening its grip on its captives, taking the Yazidis deeper into its territory.
Thousands of Kurdish-speaking Yazidis were taken prisoner and thousands more were massacred when ISIL terrorists overran their Northern Iraqi villages in August 2014. Since then, the Yazidi captives, specially women and children, have been conscripted into sexual slavery and used as human shields and suicide bombers, FNA reported.
