 Two Yazidi women perform rituals in the temple in Lalish - the holiest site in the Yazidi faith - in Kurdistan, Iraq, on Friday, September 2, 2016. For decades, the Yazidis have been persecuted by various governments and religious and tribal groups, but have most recently been brutalized by ISIS in Iraq, seeking to 'cleanse' the region of non-Sunni Islamic populations.

 Soldiers with the Yazidi 'Sun Ladies' run laps during morning exercises at their base near Sinjar, in Kurdistan, Iraq, on Tuesday, August 30, 2016.   The 'Sun Ladies', made up of several hundred Yazidi women, some who were formerly enslaved by ISIS, are attempting to fight back against the extremist group with the help of the Kurdish Peshmerga through training, funds, and arms. 
       
     
 Suad, 29, poses for a photo with her two young children Farah (left) and Faraj (right), in Khanke, Iraqi Kurdistan, on Wednesday, August 31, 2016. Suad, whose name has been changed, was abducted with her two children in 2014 when ISIS overran her village. Until this day, she does not know the fate of her husband. She was held in captivity and forcibly married to an ISIS fighter who repeatedly raped her. Her son Faraj, 2, speaks only Arabic rather than Kurdish, as a result of being raised around Arabic speaking ISIS fighters. Suad and her two children managed to escape only after a highly complicated rescue plan was enacted.
