Mosul: An ISIS commander was reportedly killed by a captured Iraqi woman after he forced her to become a sex slave for his fighters.

The Isis commander, only referred to by assumed name Abu Anas, was allegedly killed by an unidentified Iraqi woman on 5 September in Mosul, Kurdistan Democratic Party (KDP) spokesperson Saeed Mamouzini told al-Sumari TV.

The spokesperson also said that the woman had been abducted by the Isis commander and coerced into marrying several of the man's fighters three months ago

The claims follow documented examples of the dreaded terror outfit systematically abusing women and girls within their captured territory.

A Human Rights Watch report earlier this year interviewed Yazidi survivors. The women described the rape and torture meted out by their captors, justified by skewed interpretations of Islam.

According to a New York Times report, a total of 5,270 Yazidis were abducted last year, and at least 3,144 are still being held.

The Islamic State's formal introduction of systematic sexual slavery dates to Aug. 3, 2014, when its fighters invaded the villages on the southern flank of Mount Sinjar.

The use of women may be part of a larger design, such stories are sytematically propogated to lure in Western fighters and those from the Middle East, an Oxford University study recently suggested.
