YOUNG Australian jihadi brides are now being traded as sex slaves by terrorist groups in Syria and Iraq, intelligence officials have revealed.

Other young women captured by Islamic State fighters were also being bought and sold for as little as $100 each.

The publication of an IS document revealing a price list by age for buying women has prompted intelligence officials to warn that young Australian women risked being sold into sexual slavery.

It is known several Australian women who had gone to Syria had now become slaves of the terrorist group after their partners were killed.

The deputy chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security, Anthony Byrne, said information had been received of cases of women being taken into slavery.

“Any young woman who is thinking of going over there should understand the depth of depravity that is occurring,” Mr Byrne said.

“They are literally selling women for sex. Young Australian women should know that it’s not an adventure ... it’s a slave trade.

“Our information is that women are being passed around as sex slaves after their partners are killed. Is this really the sort of future that a young person would want?”

It has been confirmed by the family of one young woman from Melbourne, who travelled to Syria last year to marry an IS jihadist, that she had since been “passed around” among other jihadists after her husband was killed.

There is also concern among intelligence agencies that prices were being published by the IS terrorists for trade in children.

The intelligence report suggested that a price of 100,000 Iraqi dinars ($100) was placed on women aged between 20 and 30. The price went up to $160 for girls aged between 10 and 20.

The Research and Fatwa Department of the Islamic State recently released a pamphlet outlining its rules on female captives and slaves.

The Middle East Media Research Institute’s terrorism monitor said: “ ... it clarifies the position of Islamic law (as ISIS interprets it) on various relevant issues, and states, among other things, that it is permissible to have sexual intercourse with non-Muslim slaves, including young girls, and that it is also permitted to beat them and trade in them.”

In a series of questions and answers, the Islamic State doctrine stated: “It is permissible to have sexual intercourse with the female captive.

“It is permissible to buy, to sell or give as a gift female captives and slaves, for they are merely property which can be disposed of [as long as that doesn’t cause any harm or damage].

“It is forbidden to have intercourse with a female captive if [the master] does not own her exclusively. One who owns [a captive] in partnership [with others] may not have sexual intercourse with her until the other [owners] sell or give him [their share].

“It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty if she is fit for intercourse; however if she is not fit for intercourse, then it is enough to enjoy her without intercourse.”
