Inside al-Shahama camp near Tikrit hundreds of women and children are kept behind barbed wires and watched round the clock by security forces. They are families of ISIS fighters who have fled Mosul and other areas during battle.
Some of the families here, especially 14-year-old Muhammad, are full anger at their fathers for “destroying their lives”
Muhammad says that his father was cruel with him and his siblings. The father also forcefully married the 16-year-old sister to another ISIS militant.
What is as painful as suffering under ISIS rule, Muhammad and his mother say, is being associated with ISIS and seen as a threat and a curse by others in the camp.
The authorities at the camp say all families must be scrutinized in a computer system to make sure they do not pose a threat to the country and others in the camp after being under ISIS for three years.
