Yousif Daoud, a Canadian-based aid worker, told the Toronto Star the abuse the girl has suffered had left her mentally and physically traumatized.
“This girl is so young she could die if she delivers a baby. Even cesarean section is dangerous,” he said.
At least 10 different men with the Islamic State were said to have raped the girl.
“Most of them were front-line fighters or suicide bombers who are given girls as a reward,” Daoud explained. “She was in very bad shape.”
The young girl was one of over 200 Yazidi women and children to be released this week after being held captive as sex slaves for eight months, according to the Canadian newspaper.
A Kurdish aid group has taken the young girl to Germany. She will be looked after by a medical charity until her baby arrives.
Daoud worried that many of the women released by ISIS would be shunned by their communities.
“If they are married, their husbands won’t take them back if they are pregnant,” he said to Yahoo. “And it’s clear that the babies will never be accepted.”
