Shamima Begum, Amira Abase and Kadiza Sultana fled to be ‘jihadi brides’
Believed trio are training with Al-Khansa brigade in ISIS stronghold Raqqa
One of its leaders is British-born Aqsa Mahmood who fled to Syria in 2013
The three east London schoolgirls who fled the UK for Syria have joined a fearsome group of British female jihadis who run the lslamic State’s ultra-religious police force, it has been reported.
Shamima Begum and Amira Abase, both 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, crossed over the Turkish-Syrian border last February and are believed to be living in the Syrian city of Raqqa.
Begum has forged social media links with three of the British leaders of the al-Khansa brigade – an all-women militia set up by the terror group a year ago – and it is understood the trio are now training with one of the notorious females arms of ISIS.
Covered in black from head-to-toe and wielding automatic weapons, the group has been accused of doling out savage beatings on the streets of Raqqa and spying on its citizens.
They are said to mercilessly patrol the streets of the terror group’s adopted capital and has previously declared children as young as nine should be married, women should obey men – who are their masters – and remain ‘hidden and veiled’ at all times.
According to Syrian activist group Raqqa is being Slaughtered Silently, the female fanatics are feared by local women, particularly due to their use of torture.
The activist group claim imprisoned women are tortured using a device known as ‘the biter’, a iron bar with sharp jagged edges.
Placed on the helpless woman’s chest, the serrated edges of the bar are pressed into the woman’s skin, causing deep lacerations.
Such is the violence of the torture, some women reportedly slip into unconsciousness due to the pain.
Aqsa Mahmoud, a 20-year-old woman from Glasgow who fled to Syria in 2013, is reportedly the leader of an al Khansaa group known as ‘Om Amara’.
Om Amara is reportedly a female foreign battalion, with just two Arabic speakers who mercilessly patrol the streets of Raqqa.
Begum made contact with Mahmood, known as Umm Layth, on social media prior to departing for Turkey.
Begum also used her Twitter account to follow two other members of the al-Khansa brigade known only by their Islamic names Umm Khattab and Umm Waqqas.
In one of her recent tweets, Umm Waqqas advised British women on marriage in the Islamic State saying they should choose their jihadi fighters carefully and not to marry any ‘Tom Dick or Harry’.
The British women jihadists in Syria have conducted a sustained recruitment campaign in the last few months and are thought to operate a woman-only jihadi route for European girls who are groomed to leave their Western lives for the caliphate.
They use social media, including Tumblr, Twitter and Ask.fm to publish detailed, practical advice about how to adapt to life in Islamic State and suggest essential items that the teenage wannabe-jihadists will find useful when they arrive.
Privately-educated Glaswegian Mahmood – along with Lewisham-born Khadijah Dare, 22 – are thought to be helping patrol Raqqa with guns and daggers hidden beneath their robes.
The group operates as an ultra-oppressive police force monitoring the behaviour of females in the city and dishing out brutal punishments to anyone wearing shoes that aren’t black, or those wearing veils made from the wrong material.
Mahmood recently advised that the Syrian winter was even colder than what she had experienced in her native Scotland and suggested ‘winter woolies’ were an essential.
Seventeen-year-old British jihadi twins Salma and Zahra Halane from Manchester, who left for Syria in June last year, are thought to be with older British women who have taken on matriarchal roles within the group.
They have been posting pictures on their Twitter accounts showing four al-Khansa women – veiled and armed with automatic weapons – undertaking ‘self defence’ training.
Umm Khattab started a Twitter account on June 27 – the day after Zahra and Salma Halane went missing from their home in Manchester to head for Syria.
She later tweeted: ‘Missing twins – chilling with one of them now’, adding she had met ‘many British girls’ since arriving in Syria.
The female branch of ISIS also released an eye-opening manifesto stating Western women who join the terror group have a duty to wed a jihadi – then spend their life cooking, cleaning and raising a family.
Two other British schoolgirls, Yusra Hussien, 16, from Bristol and Samya Dirie, 17, from south London, who were reported to have arrived inSyria last October, are also thought to have been mentored by the British jihadists.
Security services say that 600 British Muslims have gone to fight in Syria and around 60 of them are young women.
According to the Terrorism Research and Analysis Consortium, a US-based monitoring group, al-Khansa was set up by ISIS commanders in Raqqa, northern Syria, in February last year.
Its members dress in black robes, wear a full face veil and are paid a monthly salary of 25,000 Syrian pounds – about £100.
Their duties include the strict enforcement of sharia law dress code as well as searching burka-clad women to ensure they are not enemy fighters in disguise.
Mahmood, who once studied radiography at Glasgow Caledonian University, is regarded as one of the leaders of the group of British female jihadists.
She was reported missing by her parents over a year ago before surfacing in Syria last February as an outspoken supporter of the terrorist group.
In her tweets, she urged Muslim men and women who could not come to fight to instead commit terrorist atrocities at home, praising the brutal murder of Fusilier Lee Rigby in Woolwich, the bombing of the Boston Marathon and the shooting of soldiers at Fort Hood in Texas.
‘If you cannot make it to the battlefield, then bring the battlefield to yourself,’ she tweeted.
