Jihadi bride Shamima Begum begs to come home saying she was brainwashed about Islam | World | News

Begum, who was 15 when she fled her home in east London to join ISIS within two schoolfriends in 2015, said she was suffering mental health issues following the deaths of her three babies in five months in the camps. She also complained she had no friends in Syria and has not spoken to anyone from the UK in six months.

The 19-year-old was tracked down to the sprawling Al Hawl camp, which holds more than 70,000 ISIS family members, along with her baby son Jarrah who later died.

She told the Daily Mail: “Mentally I am in a really bad way. I need therapy to deal with my grief. It is so hard. I have lost all my children.

“I have no real friends. I have lost all the friends who came with me. Now I do not have anyone.”

Begum was stripped of her British citizenship by then Home Secretary Sajid Javid but has now hired a human rights lawyer and says she feels she is being punished enough for living in a warzone.

She said she regrets her past and wants to come back to the UK for a “second chance to start my life over again” after being “brainwashed” before leaving Bethnal Green for he desert.

She said: “I came here believing everything that I had been told while knowing little about the truths of my religion.”

Begum told the paper she glad to be moved from Al Hawl which was effectively run by ruthless female relatives of ISIS fighters who reportedly torture and murder women and children who stand up to them.

She said: “I hate these women and what they stand for and what they believe in and that they think they can terrorise anyone who does not share their views.”

She claimed earlier comments in support of the bloodthirsty terror group were only made to protect herself and her unborn son.

The couple’s third child Jarrah died in March just three weeks after he was born.

The baby had been taken to a clinic in al-Roj camp in north-eastern Syria with suffering breathing difficulties.

A friend of Begum said “the baby turned blue and was cold” before being rushed to a clinic inside the camp.

Jarrah is understood to have been buried along with two other children who burned to death in a fire at the camp.
