Kurdish authorities in Kirkuk vet former ISIS 'wives'

By Rudaw 12/6/2017
-
Kurdish officials are working together to process women who were under ISIS rule for two or more years.

Some of them prefer imprisonment in Kirkuk over living under ISIS.

“In the name of jihad of nikah, I was married off to the militants four times in two weeks,” said one survivor. “If I had not agreed, they would have killed my children.”

Human rights committees in Kirkuk have begun its investigations believing not all of the detainees are criminals, but that some of them were forced to join ISIS. 

But the survivors await court verdicts to be released.

According to Migration Department data, there are 170 women at Laylan camps whose husbands were ISIS militants and married off more than once to the militants.

It's important to weed out the ISIS sympathisers and find out who the collaborators and who the real victims were. These evil monsters should not be allowed to get away with their crimes.

Sometimes a female can make you a terrorist, but sometimes they use their inocent card to get free. An example is Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik.
