Three British Teens Allegedly Run Away from ISIS


The three British teenage girls who were believed to have joined the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS) are on the run after escaping from the group, according to a report in British newspaper the Daily Mail.

Shamima Begum, 15, Amira Abase, 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16 in February
A blogger in Mosul city, who goes by the name of "Mosul Eye," claimed in a post on his Facebook page that the three girls escaped on May 2, adding "Three girls, (Foreigners – British) married to ISIL (ISIS) militants, reported missing, and ISIL announced to all its checkpoints to search for them. It is believed that those girls have escaped."

In addition to the very first post about the flight of the three, the anonymous blogger gave some other information about the fugitives' profile, "They are Brits, not immigrants, and they are very young teens (around 16 years old). That's all I have about them for now."

The on-the-run-girls, who are believed to have fled in order to marry ISIS militants, were claimed for a few days to be the same teenagers, named Shamima Begum, 15, Amira Abase, 15, and Kadiza Sultana, 16, who had left Bethnal Green Academy in East London in early February and flew to Turkey before crossing the border into Syria. The matter of the three British girls turned into a diplomatic incident when Turkish authorities criticized Britain's failure to alert them in time.

However, the blogger wrote in another statement, posted 10 days after the original post, that he "cannot confirm, as of yet, if those girls were the same trio mentioned in the British media, as their identities are still unknown," and added, "The latest info I got on them is they are still on the run, but still in Mosul, and ISIL is thoroughly searching for them and has not captured them yet."

Regarding the speculation about the fugitive British girls, U.K. Home Secretary Theresa May was asked whether the trio would be allowed to return to the UK or not. The home secretary told ITV1's Good Morning Britain that she is "not able to talk about individual cases" as such cases of return from Syria or Iraq should be evaluated on "a case-by-case basis." May also pointed out that several young Britons who joined ISIS came back after a while disillusioned with the group after "suddenly realizing what a mistake they made."

The question of who those three girls really are remains unanswered, with Mosul Eye the only source.

This is obviously a very dangerous situation for these 3 girls, no matter who they are. Especially if they have not made it out of Mosul. It is unlikely that they can get out of Mosul on their own, so I expect they are in contact with someone outside.

ISIS will be looking for them, and all the more diligently now that the story has leaked out. It would not be good propaganda for ISIS should the girls make it out alive to tell their stories.

Please pray for these girls.
