New Delhi: In yet another example of how shabbily ISIS is treating women, a recent video shows that this radical organisation has crossed all levels of decency and is now selling abducted women for arms and ammunition.

It shows how Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants are selling women for arms and ammunition in a ‘slave market'. Terrorists have fixed prices to sell women who have been abducted by the militant outfit.

 “I buy her for a pistol. The price differs if she has blue eyes. I will sell her for a Glock (a pistol brand),” a terrorist was quoted as saying in the video.

Terrorists also pay banknotes to buy these abducted women. The value of one banknote is almost equivalent to value of 100 dollars.

The prices of these women also vary depending upon their age. The barbaric tariffs range from around USD 10 for older women to USD 100 for younger.

Another terrorist was quoted as saying ‘if she is 15 years old... I have to check her... check her teeth'.

Special slave market day is also organised by the ISIS for this.

“Today is the slave market day... Today is distribution day God willing. Each one takes his share,” another terrorist was quoted as saying.

The video was recorded in Mosul, the second-largest city in Iraq.

The ISIS since August 2014 has kidnapped more than 25,000 women. According to a report by the United Nations, the terror outfit has set up a ‘slave market' where females are sold for arms and ammunitions.
