Amira Abase: Teenager who fled London to become Jihadi bride in ISIS-controlled Syria ‘tweets picture of takeaway feast’
15-year-old Amira Abase’s Twitter picture shows a huge take-out feast, including fried chicken, flatbread, chips, pizza, kebab and a soft drink
A British teenager believed to have fled to Syria to join ISIS appears to have tweeted a picture of a takeaway feast from her new home in the heart of the murderous regime.
Amira Abase, 15, left her home in east London and disappeared to Turkey with friends Shamima Begum, 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, last month.
The trio then crossed into an ISIS-controlled part of Syria in a bid to become so-called ˜jihadi brides.
The picture shows a huge take-out feast, including fried chicken, flatbread, chips, pizza, kebab and a soft drink.
She appears to be tweeting under the name Bintt Abbas and wrote underneath the picture ‘dawla takeaway w/ @um_ayoub12’.
‘Dawla’ means ‘dynasty’ or ‘state’ and is used to refer to the lands controlled by ISIS.
The Twitter account tagged in the post belongs to a young woman describing herself as a ’16-year-old muhajirah’ and earlier this year tweeted: “uh wanna behead some kafirs (non-muslims) now?”, reports MailOnline.
Jihadi brides who have moved to ISIS-controlled territory often tweet out pictures of life in Syria and Iraq in what is believed to be an attempt to encourage others to join them.
About 600 Britons are believed to have travelled to Syria and Iraq since the conflict began, according to Scotland Yard assistant commissioner Mark Rowley, the national policing lead for counter-terrorism.
This week it emerged that police have compiled a dossier of “intelligence” on a group of teenage girls from London thought to be at risk of travelling to areas controlled by the Islamic State group.
Detail of the “running log” was given to Mr Justice Hayden by lawyers at the latest in a series of hearings relating to the girls in the Family Division of the High Court.
The judge has grounded a number of youngsters in recent weeks after concerns about the possibility of them heading to ISIS-controlled areas were raised by social workers and police.
He has made them wards of court, a move which bars them from travelling abroad without a judge’s permission.
Teenagers who have been made wards of court include four girls from London who attend the same school – Bethnal Green Academy in Bethnal Green, east London – as the three girls already thought to have fled to join ISIS.
