‘I enjoyed torturing women. Especially when their fathers or husbands were there’: Female ISIS torturer describes horrors she inflicted and says British female jihadists were the most brutal
- Hajer, 25, was a member of the all-female Al-Khansaa ISIS brigade
- Now a deserter, she says British female jihadists would take the lead on torture
- Hajer herself would take pleasure in torturing women in front of their families
The woman, only known as Hajer, also reveals that the British female jihadists would be the most sadistic torturers, and would use a tool known as a ‘biter’, reportedly able to inflict pain ‘worse than childbirth’.
The 25-year-old was one of the first recruits to join the all-female Al-Khansaa brigade in 2014, a group of women jihadists that has been compared to Hitler’s Gestapo.
Speaking to writer Ahmad Ibrahim, for Raqqa is Being Slaughtered Silently, Hajer reveals that she joined ISIS because it was one of the few terror groups that allowed women to fight and rise in the ranks.
She was part of the Al-Khansaa brigade, where she would later be joined by runaway London schoolgirls Shamima Begum, Amira Abase and Kadiza Sultana, as well as Muslim convert Sally Jones, 47, from Kent.
