    Wives of Daesh terrorists agreed to take part in a video interview conducted by Iraqi law-enforcement services. Sputnik received the exclusive footage from the Iraqi federal police.

    The video depicts three women responding to police questions after their evacuation from Mosul.

    The first woman said that she was forced to marry a terrorist by her uncle, who is also a member of Daesh. In this way, he hoped to get a promotion within the group, but later was killed. The woman now has a one-year-old child; the fate of her husband remains unknown.

    Replying to the police's questions, the woman said that she could not escape from her husband, because he kept her captive in the cellar for more than a year. After he found out that she tried to contact her relatives who serve in the army, he threatened to kill her.

    When the second woman was asked if she was married to a Daesh militant, she only nodded affirmatively. Later she said that her husband was killed. The father of the woman was also a Daesh member, he was also killed a couple of days ago.

    The third woman was holding a small child on her hands during the interview. Her husband was killed during an airstrike.

    Commenting on the women's statements, the head of the Iraqi federal police Shakir Jaudat told Sputnik that "women who agreed to answer questions in front of the camera are innocent. If they were involved in committing crimes, they would refuse to do so."

    According to Jaudat, the women's testimony will be used for further investigations.

    Daesh terrorists are notorious for their atrocities against civilians and, especially, their cruel treatment of women. Women are often used by Daesh militants as slaves and sometimes serve as snipers or work in financial departments within the terrorist group.
