1/ Today is 4th anniversary of Yazidi genocide by #ISIS. Thousands of Yazidis killed &enslaved.

In Syria I found #ISISfiles, some on treatment of women by ISIS.

Here my story for @akhbar

It's in Arabic but in thread I'll explain in English
2/ The #ISISfiles about women can be divided into 2 categories.

a. Restrictive laws mainly meant to control local female population in ISIS parts of Syria.

b. Rulings regarding behavior of ISIS-female members. What work can ISIS-women do? Can ISIS-women fight? Etc.

3/ ISIS files show court cases whereby (male) ISIS “spies” accuse Syrian females of having attended "mixed" weddings (males and females attended wedding). Also women were accused of wearing make-up.

1/ I'm back in studio &continuing my series on #ISISfiles which I found in Tabqa, Syria.

This story is on ISIS docs regarding fighters from US, Belgium, Holland, etc.

Judging by attacks in Paris+Indonesia, ISIS still active &dangerous.

English Thread.

2/ I found #ISISfiles mentioned in this report in abandoned ISIS-court in mosque in Syria.

Imam told me he wanted to burn docs.

I asked his permission to take docs for archiving purposes.

I've given copies to local+int bodies that help bring closure &justice to ISIS victims.
3/ Already in 2013 we found trove of Al-Qaeda documents in Timbuktu, Mali.

In AlQaeda offices, we saved these docs from certain destruction.

We reported about it for @akhbar & @foreignpolicy then handed docs over to international court.

1/ ISIS did so many crazy things that hardly anything surprises the outside world any more.

But docs I found at regional ISIS-court in Tabqa, #Syria show Syrians suffered from this daily ISIS extremism.

I made top 10 of oddest court cases.

Here my 2nd story on #ISISfiles. 👇
2/ As most of you noticed, my 2nd story on the #ISISfiles is in Arabic. But in this thread I'll tweet some points in English to explain the report a bit. Do check. @akhbar
3/ First, the #ISISfiles I found show that most ISIS judges in #Tabqa area were non-Syrians:

- Algerian Abu Maram al-Jazaeri
- Tunisian Abu Obeida al-Tunisi
- Saudi Abu al Abbas al-Jazrawi
- Tunisian Abu Hudaifa al-Tunisi
- Egyptian Abu Ismail al-Masri

1/ @jenanmoussa en ik hebben in Syrie ruim 5000 #IS-files gevonden, incl nieuwe documenten over slavernij binnen #IS.

Deze nieuwe files maken duidelijk dat slavernij in #IS veel geïnstitutionaliseerder was dan tot nu toe werd aangenomen.

Echt belangrijk draadje, denk ik. 👇
2/ Zoals u kunt zien is de tv-reportage in het Arabisch, maar draadje van @jenanmoussa met alle details in het Engels. Dus makkelijk te volgen.
3/ We vonden op 1 plek in Tabaqa zoveel #IS-documenten, dat we niet alles meer konden dragen. Tassen vol, ik had gelukkig rugzak bij. Heeft ons maanden gekost om alles te kopieren, vertalen, ordenen, organiseren etc.

1/ ISIS files I found in Syria show slavery of Yazidis much more institutionalized than previously known.

Docs reveal:

ISIS paid fighters $50 p/m per slave
ISIS Human Resources booklets give number of slaves
ISIS Ministry of Health cards mention nbr of slaves

#ISISfiles 👇👇👇
2/ I found ISIS receipt book with “records of financial support for Mujahid”. It shows monthly salary each fighter gets from ISIS, based on family situation.

Receipt book shows ISIS fighter gets $50 per month if he has a slave &$35 if he has child of a slave.

@akhbar #ISISfiles
3/ I also found booklet issued by "ISIS Human Resources department". Booklet must be carried by all ISIS administrative workers.

In it workers had to answers questions like: How much furniture, weapons did u get from ISIS? Also: How many slaves do u have?
