According to an eyewitness, captives of Islamic State are forced to endure daylong torture sessions. Even worse, captives who are healthy become unwilling donors of body parts in order to tend to injured jihadists.
Former prisoner Abo Rida says that surgeons for the terror group remove kidneys and corneas from prisoners.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Former prisoner Abo Rida reported surgeons for the terror group removed organs from prisoners. Captives' blood was also regularly drawn to treat wounded ISIS fighters.
"ISIS was using them as a blood bank to withdraw blood when they need it for injured members," Rida said.
"They moved organs such as kidneys and corneas from the prisoners," he told a Web site run by anti-ISIS activists.
Rida reported ISIS saying "the fate of these prisoners (was) inevitable death" and the jihadists were "more deserving" of the organs.
As organs and blood were harvested, Rida said other captives endured "all kinds of torture" after they were accused of crimes such as insulting Allah. The torture sessions would last all day with no "specific time" for the start or finish.
After the prison Rida was interred at suffered a direct hit during a counter terrorism raid, he was able to escape. "Not many of us could escape because ISIS members fired at us," he said. Rida was one of only four who survived.
Doctors who refused to harvest organs were murdered, Alhakim said. "We have bodies. Come and examine them. It is clear they are missing certain parts."
