Discarded Women

How disheartening to hear how Syrian women are tricked, coerced, and used by ISIS... and then discarded.

These three women eventually escaped to Turkey, but first they were coerced into marriages with ISIS foreigners who turned out to be suicide bombers.  

The men were not allowed to become fathers, lest they abandon their mission.  So the "wives" were not allowed to get pregnant.

One day their husbands disappeared and soon men came to inform them that they were widows.

Soon thereafter they were again coerced to marry new ISIS warriors...but these three escaped across the border into Turkey to tell their stories.

And now the US is urging Turkey to close 100 km of its border with Syria?

How will refugees escape?
