Tareena Shakil: British mum who fled to join ISIS may be sent BACK to Syria
The 25-year-old claims she fled from her jihadist base over the border to Turkey when IS militants tried to force her to marry a one-legged fighter.
The young British mum who went to Syria with her toddler son to join Islamic State terrorists may not be allowed to return to the UK, her family has been warned.
Tareena Shakil, 25, claims she fled from her jihadist base over the border to Turkey when IS militants tried to force her to marry a one-legged fighter.
But now she faces a fight to return to Britain with her 16-month-old son Zaheem – because Turkish authorities might send her BACK to Syria.
A Foreign Office source said: “It’s not impossible that this could happen. They are on the front line of the war with IS and will have little sympathy towards her.”
"She told The Sun: 'I hated it. I tried to escape within a few days of getting there. It wasn't what I thought it would be. 'Life is so hard there. There's no hot water, no electricity for hours on end, none of the comforts we are used to in Britain. 'I escaped death so many times. There were bombs coming down on the street where I lived every night. The house would shake. I didn't know if I was going to live or die.' "
