ISIS militants’ jealous wives have complained their extremist husbands are lavishing gifts on sex slaves and giving the captive women too much affection.
The partners, dubbed the “desperate housewives of Raqqa”, were more concerned about how much their husbands spent on lipstick for their slaves than their barbaric acts of terror like beheadings.
One runaway wife said the jihadists were buying the “best” make-up and clothes for their slaves, creating “tension” between the women.
She also told how her husband and other extremists used a mobile phone app to sell their slaves, with virgins going for as much as $10,000 (£7,700).
Journalist Jenan Moussa spoke to runaway ISIS wives at a refugee camp in Ayn Issa, Syria, after they escaped the city of Raqqa, where fierce fighting continues between militants and forces backed by a US-led coalition.
Most of the women at the camp are foreign-born and desperate to return home, The Times reported.
One Lebanese wife said some of the other wives divorced their husbands due to the way they treated their slaves.
She said: “They were spending too much on the sex slaves, buying them the best make-up, clothes and accessories.”
She said her husband used the sex slave app, adding: “They were sharing photos of the sex slaves with the best make-up and clothes, and asking $2,000 for this one, $3,000 for that one. A virgin cost $10,000.”
One wife revealed that many of the women fancy ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, who declared a ‘caliphate’ in 2014.
His fate is unknown, as unconfirmed reports have claimed that he was recently killed in an artillery strike or airstrike.
In Moussa’s report, the women said the terror group’s barbaric killings had ‘nothing to do with them’ as they spent ‘quiet nights on the sofa with their husbands’.
