A Yezidi slave girl with blue eyes can fetch the jihadists a good price, while a girl who is over 15 years of age needs to undergo a thorough check up of her teeth. These and some other chilling details have emerged in a newly released video in which ISIS jihadists are seen negotiating the price for Yazidi girls, who are sold as sex slaves.
This comes as thousands of women and young girls from the Iraqi tribe have been abducted and forced into sex market and slavery by the deadly jihadist group after they stormed into villages in northern Sinjar region.
The YouTube footage shows several Islamist fighters negotiating the selling price of the girls as young as 15. The young women were exchanged for money or guns.
"Today is the slave market day," a man appears to say in the video in a quote translated by Middle Eastern TV channel Al Aan.
"Today is the day of slave and we should have our share," another person is heard saying in the chilling footage. "Where is my Yazidi girl?"
As potential seller comes forward announcing that he has a girl to be sold, fighters start discussing the price and terms of transaction. They offer three to five "banknotes" each beloved to be worth $100 and other values.
"The price differs if she has blue eyes," one person says.
"I will sell her for a Glock (pistol)," the seller replies.
Another man is heard saying: "If she is 15 years old, I have to check her, check her teeth".

Although the video cannot be independently verified, the dreaded jihadist group have themselves declared that they have taken many Yazidi women as slaves, claiming that the trade is justified on religious grounds.
Al Aan TV reports that the above video was taken somewhere in Mosul, Iraq's second largest city, which was seized by ISIS in June.
Branded as "devil-worshippers" and "apostates" by the Sunni extremists, the militants have particularly targeted people from Yazidis community in Iraq.
