Horrifying photographs show underground prison where ISIS held women

Shocking photographs show the cramped, suffocating spaces where dozens of Yazidi women were trapped underground in an ISIS prison.
Manhole-like panels in the northern Syrian desert are the only obvious clue of the horrific prison where the persecuted women were made to lie in complete darkness for hours every day.
The women, from the much-persecuted Yazidi minority, were forced to live their entire lives under the sand; eating, drinking and sleeping in their tiny cells.

It is not yet known what happened to the terrified women, or where they might be now.
But in heart-breaking examples of the hope and despair the women must have felt, drawings on the walls document their daily lives under the sand.

Many of the images show that the women were thinking of their former lives, before ISIS took over vast swathes of Iraq and Syria and devastated their homes and families.
One image, according to a Sky News investigation, shows a drawing of a large house, with a car and animals outside.
The horrific discovery of the make-shift prison is just the latest revelation of the brutal campaign of massacres, enslavement and rape waged by ISIS against the minority people.
ISIS overran Sinjar, in Iraq, in August 2014 and began persecuting the Yazidi people, who make up most of its inhabitants.
The United Nations has described the attack on the Yazidis, whose faith ISIS considers heretical, as a possible genocide.
‘Grave, horrific human rights violations are being committed daily by ISIL [sic] and associated armed groups,’ said United Nations human rights chief Navi Pillay, citing targeted killings, forced conversions, abductions, slavery, sex crimes, forced recruitment and destruction of places of worship.

‘They are systematically targeting men, women and children based on their ethnic, religious or sectarian affiliation and are ruthlessly carrying out widespread ethnic and religious cleansing in the areas under their control.’
Several mass graves, containing hundreds of bodies that are believed to be Yazidis, have been discovered across the country.
One, in the area of Sinjar, was believed to hold the bodies of some 80 women aged from 40 to 80 who one official said may have been executed because they were deemed too old to enslave and rape.
It comes amid revelations that the ISIS mastermind behind the Paris terror attacks directed three terrorists inside the Bataclan theatre using his phone as he stood just doors away.
An eyewitness told French investigators they saw Abdelhamid Abaaoud standing in a doorway shouting down his phone for around an hour on November 13 – the night 90 people were slaughtered in the theatre.

Where do they get their inspiration for such behaviors .... Could it be from the best example for mankind to emulate ???
