US-backed Syrian fighters liberate Yazidi woman who was raped and forced to marry extremists

BEIRUT: US-backed Kurdish fighters in Syria have liberated a Yazidi woman who had been held for a decade by the Daesh group, where she was raped and forced to marry extremists, the Syrian Democratic Forces said Monday.

The 24-year-old woman along with her son and daughter were rescued during an ongoing security operation by Kurdish fighters in Syria’s northeastern sprawling Al-Hol camp that houses tens of thousands of people, mostly wives and children of Islamic State fighters as well as supporters of the militant group, the SDF said.
