Abdalaziz Alhamza – Exclusive – Raqqa is being slaughtered silently
ISIS formed Khansa’a battalion in February 2014, to play a key role to monitor and arrest women flouting ISIS orders and punish them, and also to bring wives to ISIS members, and after the services the battalion gave to ISIS, ISIS circulated this experience to the rest of the areas that under their control where Alkhansa’a now has branches in every city of ISIS control
Alkhansa’a battalion has a bad reputation among the civilians, and it is a nightmare for the women in Raqqa city as a result for the practices they do to provoke people for personal reasons, and most of the women who joined the battalion recently have a bad reputation, some of them used to work in prostitution before the control of ISIS over the city, and they joined to get high salaries or after their arresting by ISIS and swear allegiance to ISIS to avoid the punishments such as stoning
After the approaching of the battles from the Raqqa city ISIS start processing of this battle for the defense of the most important strongholds, they began to dig tunnels and build-up roadblocks in the city, but ISIS decided to enter the female element in the battle directly, and as a result of not possible for pushing Khansa’a battalion in the battle in fear of losing their influence on the women within the city, which threatens to have a security loose in ISIS point of view.
Farah is a nickname, she is a girl from Raqqa city said to RBSS reporter: one of ISIS members wives came to me and she used to know me before, she kept visiting me daily for a week and trying to hint at the need of involving women into the battles to protect the Raqqa of the expected attack, and that the defense of the city is the duty of all.
Farah added : the conversation of this woman started to evolve trying to convince me to join ISIS , but what more surprised me was that she asked me to join a new women battalion of ISIS and their mission is not to fight , but to carry out a suicidal operations being the enemy of ISIS won’t expect that a woman would do such an operation , and that ISIS will insure to take care of her family after her death and will give the a large sum of money before the implementation of the operation as collateral for her
One of the widows of one of ISIS members in Iraq confirmed exclusively to RBSS , that an Egyptian woman from ISIS came to her and asked her to marry another member of ISIS and when she asked her to carry out a suicidal operation and she would give her money if she wants to and she said to her “ I’m sure that your husband is missing you , what do you think to do a suicidal operation and to go to your husband in heaven and by this you will become a martyr , we will train you how to do it and we will give you money as much as you want.
The need of ISIS for women to implement the suicidal operation may fall under the ruses that ISIS follows, there wasn’t any implementation of such operations in the Syrian arena,
However, it is certain that the number of suicide bombers of ISIS is gradually reduced and may have reached the stage of deficit and no longer the amount of child recruited in the ranks of ISIS enough to carry out suicidal operations that ISIS best known of it and was the way to his victories in many battles.
