According to the so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, 42 women, which had been treated as "slaves" by the ISIL militants, were sold "for between $500 (447 euros) and $2,000 dollars (1,785 euros)" in Syria's eastern province of Deir Ezzor.

Hundreds of women and girls were abducted last year by the ISIL militants following the fall of the Iraqi city of Sinjar, mainly populated by Izadi Kurds.

The UK-based rights group further said that earlier this month the abducted Izadi women were brought to the town of Mayadin in the Syrian province, which is under the control of the Takfiri group.

The ISIL attacks against the Izadis’ hometown last year displaced tens of thousands of people, including the elderly and children, many of whom perished while left stranded in the mountains.

"Some were abducted with their children but we do not know their fate," said the director of the observatory, Rami Abdel Rahman.

The United Nations has said that the Takfiri group’s atrocities against the Izadi Kurds may amount to genocide.

In May, Zainab Bangura, the special representative of the UN secretary general on sexual violence in conflict, said that the Takfiri group is committing horrendous crimes against women, particularly against the Izadi community.

The Takfiris currently control parts of Syria and Iraq. They have threatened all communities, including Shias, Sunnis, Kurds, Christians, Izadi Kurds and others, as they continue their atrocities in Iraq and Syria.
