This is absolutely absurd and disgusting.

A United Nations official has confirmed the existence of an Islamic State sex slave price list that is distributed in Iraq and Syria to regulate how much enslaved women and children are sold for in the caliphate’s slave markets.
Pamphlets that lists the varying prices for the different age ranges of enslaved women and children often circulate throughout Iraq and Syria.
Zainab Bangura, a former foreign minister of Sierra Leone, acquired and shared the the details of the list that she obtained while visiting the region. According to the list, which Bangura deemed authentically produced by IS and representative of real transactions, small children fetch the most money, with little girls being sold for as much as $165. DISGUSTING!
While children aged one to nine years old are to be sold for the Iraqi dinar equivalent of $165, adolescent children between the age of 10 and 20 are to be sold for about $124.
Twenty to 30-year-old women are to be sold for about $85, while 30 to 40-year-olds are sold for about $65. Rounding out the bottom of the list are 40 to 50-year-old women, who are expected to be sold for about $40.

This is a very disturbing and sad reality. These poor women and children only have one life to live and they are stuck in a living hell.
“The girls get peddled like barrels of petrol,” Bangura said. “One girl can be sold and bought by five or six different men. Sometimes these fighters sell the girls back to their families for thousands of dollars of ransom.”
Bangura explained that at the markets, IS militant leaders are first allowed to take the girls that they desire. Afterwards, rich non-IS Middle Easterners are allowed to bid up to thousands of dollars to buy the slaves.

After the rich outsiders are done bidding, the rest of the sex slaves are offered to militants at list value.

“It’s not an ordinary rebel group,” Bangura asserted. “When you dismiss them as such, then you are using the tools you are used to. This is different. They have the combination of a conventional military and a well-run organized state.”
