The mother of two British teenagers who ran to Syria to marry ISIS fighters after becoming radicalised online was taken by the group as she tried to rescue them.. Zahra and Salma Halane, both 16, of Chorlton, Manchester, disappeared overnight from their home in June.
Dailymail reports that, their father Ibrahim, 52, and mother Khadra Jama, 45, who are originally from Somalia, travelled to the region to try to bring them home but Khadra was detained by fighters.
She was later released and returned to Britain after her daughter insisted that Allah had ‘chosen’ for them to be in Syria. She said she had been exclusively chosen by Allah to come to al-Sham (Syria).’
A senior member of the Somali community in Manchester said they were ‘appalled’ at the sisters’ actions
‘Everyone is really shocked the twins are still in Syria with these so-called jihadi fighters who are carrying out such atrocities,’ he said.
‘We, as a Somali people, are all appalled by their actions but we are also desperately sad for their family.
