London, Mar 28 : The Islamic State’s (IS) female army, called the ‘Al Khansaa Brigade’ has reportedly been composed of British jihadi brides and prostitutes.
An activist with the ‘Raqqa is being slaughtered silently’ resistance group said that, the majority in the brigade were British women, while others were being women of ill-repute, the Daily Star reported.
These women are being paid 1,000 pounds a month, have been given plum apartments and are the only women allowed to drive there. They have enforced strict Sharia laws on females in Raqqa, the regime’s capital in Syria.
The International Committee for the Red Cross has warned that IS has been trying to hold water resources in the desert regions for ransom.
