ISIS appears to be selling captive women kept as sex slaves online in order to replenish the cash-strapped terrorists, the Washington Post reports. 

In a Facebook posting May 20, an ISIS militant identifying himself as Abu Assad Almani posts a picture of a young woman, commenting "To all the bros thinking about buying a slave, this one is $8,000."

A second image posted hours later by Almani lists the sale of "another sabiyah," or slave, for the same price.

"What makes her worth that price? Does she have an exceptional skill?" one correspondent asks about the second woman, the Post reports.

"Nope," Almani answers. ""Supply and demand makes her that price."

The photos have been taken down by Facebook.

According to the Post, social media sites used by ISIS fighters in recent months have included "numerous" accounts of the buying and selling of sex slaves, as well rules for how to deal with them.

But the May 20 Facebook posting is the first instance of pictures being used in the sale of sex slaves, the Post reports, citing images captured by the Middle East Media Research Institute. 

The organization Human Rights Watch, citing estimates by Kurdish officials in Iraq and Syria, says the terrorist group holds about 1,800 women and girls, just from the capture of Yazidi towns alone, according to the Post.

"The longer they are held by ISIS, the more horrific life becomes for Yazidi women, bought and sold, brutally raped, their children torn from them," Skye Wheeler of the organization tells the Post

"Meanwhile, ISIS’s restrictions on [non-enslaved] Sunni women cut them off from normal life and services almost entirely.”\"
