A 20-years-old Kurdish Yazidi girl died in the hospital of Ozel Park in the Turkish city of Malatya, due to injuries after being burnt while captive of ISIS group terrorists in Aleppo city of northern Syria, Aras news reported.

Zuhour Seydo Kati was born in the village of Kojo in the Kurdish Yazidi Shingal (Sinjar) area in northwestern Iraq, where she was kidnapped by the IS insurgents in August 15, 2014, alongside with four of her sisters and her parents following the group’s control over the area, EKURD Daily Net reports.

The ISIS group has extended its control on most parts of Yazidi Sinjar district (124 km west of Mosul) on August 3, 2014 which led thousands of Kurdish families to flee to Mount Sinjar, where they were trapped in it and suffered from significant lack of water and food, killing and abduction of thousands of Yazidis hundreds buried alive, and countless acts of rape, kidnapping and enslavement are perpetuated against Yazidi women.

Hundreds and possibly thousands of Kurdish Yazidi women and girls have been forced to marry or been sold into sexual slavery by the IS terrorists, according to Amnesty International.

“She was sold more than three times and most recently was sold to a Saudi member of the IS, who took her to Aleppo,” the Yazidi politician Dr. Mirza Danaya told Ara News.

“Zuhour was able to enter into the Turkish territory last week, after an IS militant burnt her body for unknown reasons,” Danaya added, pointing out that his brother was commissioned to take care of her until finalizing procedures for her transfer for treatment to Germany, after the approval of the German authorities.

Danaya said that his sister did not survive the ordeal, which resulted in burns covering approximately 90 percent of her body.

“Unfortunately she died,” he sadly said with eyes full of tears. “We’ll send her corpse to Shingal to be buried there–where, with the exception of her sister who was able to escape, her relatives are still being held captive by the radical group,” Danaya added.

The Yazidis are a Kurdish religious group linked to Zoroastrianism and Sufism. They currently live primarily in Iraq’s Kurdistan region and the Nineveh Province of northern Iraq.

Some 600,000 Yazidis live in villages in Iraqi Kurdistan region also some lives in Armenia, Georgia, Turkey, and Syria with a small communities in Transcaucasia in US.

There are almost 1.5 million Yazidis worldwide, half a million of whom live in Iraq.
