A Yazidi woman described how she was kidnapped by ISIS as a teenager and repeatedly raped and beaten by terrorist Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi during his last years as a leader.
The nameless woman was kept as a slave for months, while the current boss desperately moved to towns and deserts in Eastern Syria near the Iraqi border to seek security while the extremists' domains crumbled.
In his final months, al-Baghdadi became obsessed with his safety before the brutal leader, once praised as & # 39; caliph & # 39 ;, blew himself up during an October 26 attack by US special forces on his heavily fortified safe house.
The Yazidi girl, who was released in May in a US-led raid, said al-Baghdadi first attempted to flee to Idlib at the end of 2017.

She said that one night she was loaded in a convoy with three vehicles, including the IS leader, his wife and his security entourage, on their way to the province.
The convoy reached a main road but then turned, apparently afraid it would be attacked, said the girl, who was then 17.
They spent about a week in the southeastern Syrian city of Hajin, near the Iraqi border. They then moved north to Dashisha, another border town in Syria on the territory of IS.
There the Yazidi teenager spent four months in the house of the father-in-law of al-Baghdad, a close assistant named Abu Abdullah al-Zubaie.
Al-Baghdadi would often visit and rap her there and sometimes beat her, the teenager said.
He would only move & # 39; at night, wear sneakers and cover his face, always with about five security guards who urged him as & # 39; hajji & # 39; or & # 39; sheik & # 39 ;, she said.

& # 39; When I asked him something, he did not answer me for security reasons. Not everyone knew where he was, & she said.
In the spring of 2018 she was given to another man, who took her from Dashisha. That was the last time she saw al-Baghdadi, although the teenager sent her a piece of jewelry, the teenager said.
It would appear that Al-Baghdadi then moved from place to place in Eastern Syria the following year when one IS fortress fell after another due to US-backed Kurdish-led combat before moving to Idlib sometime in the spring .

During that time, al-Baghdadi was a & # 39; nervous wreck & # 39; up and down polar bears and complaining of treason and infiltrations under his & # 39; walis & # 39 ;, or governors of the group's self-proclaimed provinces. , his brother-in-law, Mohamad Ali Sajit, said in an interview with Al-Arabiya TV last week.
& # 39; This is all treason, & # 39; Sajit recalled al-Baghdadi shouting.
Sajit, an Iraqi married to another al-Zubai daughters, was arrested by the Iraqi authorities in June.
He said he saw al-Baghdadi several times for 18 months, starting in Hajin at the end of 2017. The last time in the desert areas along the Syrian-Iraqi border was not long for Sajit & # 39; s own capture. He said al-Baghdadi had ordered him to deliver messages on flash drives to lieutenants in Iraq.

Iraqi and Syrian Kurdish officials have said they have separately cultivated sources that led to the IS leader, and Sajit is considered one of them. An American official said the Syrian Kurds seemed to have succeeded in finding a & # 39; guest & # 39; to get into the inner circle of al-Baghdad, whose information was crucial to the hunt.
Sajit said the movements of al-Baghdad were severely restricted, all the more because more IS territory was lost. He walked around with a suicide belt, even slept near him with a belt, and also had his assistants wear belts. He has never used a mobile; said only his assistant Abu Hassan al-Muhajer with a Galaxy 7, Sajit said.
The stress worsened the diabetes of the IS leader and he had to constantly monitor his blood sugar and take insulin. He did not fast during the holy month of Ramadan, nor did he force his assistants to fast, Sajit said.
Sometimes al-Baghdadi was disguised as a shepherd, he said. When Abu Sabah, the leader of al-Baghdad security, became aware of a possible attack on the Syrian-Iraqi border area in the desert where they were hiding, they took down their tents and hid al-Baghdadi and al-Muhajer in a dirt-covered well, Sajit said.
They allowed sheep to roam on top of the well to further hide it. When the threat of the raid was over, they returned and put up the tents, he said.
