Two teenage girls who joined the Islamic State group in 2014 have been reported as dead, according to the U.K. Daily Mail.
Samra Kesinovic, 17, and her friend, Sabina Selimovic, 15, ran away from their homes in Austria to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State group. After arriving in Raqqa in April 2014, they married Islamic State militants.
Selimovic was killed while fighting for the Islamic State in Raqqa. After her death, Kesinovic attempted to escape. She was discovered by militants in the area and beaten to death, according to a Tunisian woman who lived with the girls for a short while, Austrian news site The Local reported.
David Scharia, senior Israeli expert of the United Nations Security Council’s Counter-Terrorism Committee confirmed the news, saying both girls were believed to be dead and a search for their bodies had been planned, the Daily Mail reported.
An Islamic preacher from Bosnia living in Vienna known as Ebu Tejma allegedly recruited and brainwashed the girls into joining the jihad. Tejma has denied these allegations.
Alexander Marakovits, Austrian Interior Ministry spokesman, said there was an increasing problem with young people wanting to leave the country to fight for the Islamic State terrorists.
“If we can catch them before they leave we have the chance to work with their parents and other institutions to bring the youngsters out of the sphere of influence that prompted them to act in this way the first place,” he said. “Once they have left the country, even if they then changed their minds, it is then almost impossible to get them back.”
These girls are an example of what happens to those who join these radical militants — it isn’t pretty and, while these girls should have known better, they are a reminder of just how brutal these savages can be.
