Recently, ISIS was in news for forcing birth control pills on their slaves to keep them available for sex. The slaves said that terror group used different methods to keep them away from pregnancy including oral sex and injectable contraception.

Describing her torment at the hands of ISIS captor, a sex slave said that the only thing she could remember after escaping from captivity is the dreadful smell of her rapist's breath and the nauseating sounds he made while raping her.

 

The details of life in Islamic State are described in a series of documents that were released by a scholarly journal. The documents also revealed that the terror outfit had cut down on most of the perks offered to its militants.

The decision comes in the wake of reports that a US-led coalition airstrike in January this year had destroyed a cash storage facility of the group in Iraq's Mosul city where it had stored "millions" to pay its operatives and for ongoing operations.

 

Another document revealed that the fighters are barred from using the group's official vehicles for personal use, thus cutting down on the additional fuel expenses.

Justifying its stand on cost-cutting and levying huge taxes, Islamic State cited the Quran, claiming that it prioritises "jihad of wealth," or spending in beneficial or charitable ways, over "jihad of soul".
