LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Her face battered by the sun after days hiding in the mountains, the woman says she witnessed the Islamic State fighters cut the head of one man just feet from her -- using a knife.

The Yazidi woman fleeing for her life described seeing horrific things as ISIS invaded her village.

She also told reporters that she had seen militants sever the heads of men in her village and then parade them in front of the victims' families on the hoods of captured vehicles. She saw at least five heads severed and paraded in front of villagers.

Yet another witness said that the women would be "better off dead" than captured by the militants due to what was being done to them.

The Islamic State continues their sweep through northern Iraq. Escaped Yazidi survivors, fleeing into the Sinjar Mountains now fear their cover will be blown, transforming the desolate mountain plain into a killing field.

The woman said that she and her family had made it to the safety of Kurdistan after walking from the mountain for 12 hours, guided by Kurdish fighters.

Still other Yazidis took a far longer journey into the camps of Turkey.

One survivor spoke of seeing up to 1,000 bodies lying on the mountainside scorching underneath the scalding summer sun. The smell was appalling, he said.

Another told of a pregnant woman being executed -- her stomach cut open by black-uniformed Islamic State militants.

The minority sect has no option, they must flee into a war zone - Syria - or face slaughter at home.

"Many people have died on the mountain, many people are close to dying, they are alive but not living," one father of three said.

"We thought we would be safe in the mountains but it is a different danger there . from starving or dying of thirst as well as from the bullet.

"Some people, especially the old, are too weak to try to walk so they can try to escape - they will die there either from a bullet or from a shortage of the things that makes life possible.

At least 20,000 civilians, most of whom are from the Yazidi community, who had been besieged by jiha

At least 20,000 civilians, most of whom are from the Yazidi community, who had been besieged by jihadists on a mountain in northern Iraq have safely escaped to Syria and been escorted by Kurdish forces back into Iraq.


"People know if they try to escape and take the wrong path then they will be taken and killed if they are men, if they are women or girls, they will be taken .

"They are doing bad things to women. Some people say it would be better for them to be dead."

Help save Christians from this brutality, act now!
