Several millions of dollars of the Islamic State terrorist group have been stolen by a commander of the women’s battalion, who escaped with her helpers from Mosul to al-Ba’aj province.
A commander of the women’s battalion of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group, operating in Nineveh province, has stolen several millions of dollars, belonging to the group, and escaped from Mosul to al-Ba’aj province with four of her helpers, the Fars news agency reported on Saturday, citing unnamed local sources in Nineveh. The news agency specified that three of the commander’s helpers are Arabs, while another one is from Tajikistan.
“A commander of the female battalion is tasked to use female members in operations and administer all issues and affairs, related to female suicide bombers,” the news agency’s sources explained.
According to the sources, after the terrorist group’s members ran away from Mosul, the IS security forces are now on alert, as the terrorist group fears that its foreign members may return to their countries.
Also on Saturday, another source disclosed that three European women, who were members of the IS women’s battalion, were executed by the terrorist group in the Syrian town of Merkadeh, located in the southern part of Hasaka. Reportedly, the women were accused of spying for the international coalition’s forces.
The source noted that all members of the women’s battalion are considered as a part of the IS security agency.
According to another report from Merkadeh town, last week, at least 15 foreign members of the IS left the southern parts of Hasaka. Reportedly, after the incident, the terrorist group started to detain a number of its senior members.
