Lets hope that they stick to wearing their anti-male bags, they make an easier, slower moving target for a drone strike.
Report: 60 British women now in Syria in all-female Islamic State brigade
The British daily The Independent reported Monday that up to 60 British women had gone to Syria and joined Islamic State’s al-Khansaa brigade, an all-female police unit that administers strict Shari’a law and punishes those who don’t follow its extreme interpretation as imposed by the terror group.
One of the prominent leaders in the police force is a 20-yearold from Glasgow, Scotland, named Aqsa Mahmood, who has been in Syria since November 2013, according to the International Center for the Study of Radicalization. Her parents, Muzaffar and Khalida Mahmood, self-described moderate Muslims, said they were shocked by their daughter’s turn for the extreme.
“Our daughter is brainwashed and deluded and helping those engaged in genocide,” her parents said.
Aqsa Mahmood reportedly married an Islamic State fighter after her arrival in Raqqa, Syria, the group’s de facto capital.
Reportedly, most of the women who fled to Syria to fight are between the ages of 18 and 24.
A Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium (TRAC) report said the women in al-Khansaa are paid a monthly salary equivalent to NIS 593.
