1- #BREAK North of Raqqa, I met Lebanese wife of Tunisian ISIS fighter. Tried to flee Raqqa to Turkey. Caught by Kurds. Now in refugee camp.
2- Give me a sec and I'll explain in English in couple of tweets what the Lebanese wife of the Tunisian ISIS fighter told me.
3- North of Raqqa I met 7wives (Lebanese, Tunisian, Dagestan, Syrian) of foreign ISIS fighters (French, Malaysian, Tunisian, Turk) @akhbar
4- I also saw this Indonesian ISIS family who traveled to Raqqa to join ISIS. Refused to talk to me, claiming "we are victims of ISIS."
5- When Syrian refugees from Raqqa heard Indonesian ISIS family saying "we are victims of ISIS", women refugees almost wanted 2beat them up.
6- The Raqqa women wanted to beat up Indonesian ISIS family, shouting: What r u doing in our county? U r responsible for our misery. @akhbar
7- For safety reasons ISIS families in camp north of Raqqa r kept by SDF in separate corner bcz Raqqa refugees want to beat ISIS people.
8- Indonesia women told me: "ISIS deceived us with propaganda." I said: "So u saw beheading vids &thought: Great, lets join ISIS?" No reply.
9- Important to note these foreign ISIS families DIDN'T surrender to SDF but tried 2sneak from Raqqa to Turkey &were caught by SDF. @akhbar
10- After ISIS families from Raqqa r caught by SDF, they are interrogated &either put in prison or in special part of refugee camp. @akhbar
11- I guess eventually their embassies will try to get these ISIS people back home. Or maybe let them stay in camp. I dont know. @akhbar
12- Back to the Lebanese wife of an ISIS fighter in my interview above, her name is Nour AlHoda. She says she totally regrets joining ISIS.
13- She explained how ISIS locked women up in guest houses in Raqqa. Said her kids got sick, they didn't let her take them to hospital.
14- Off camera I asked her if she had "Sabaya", female slaves. She said no but knew of 9yr old slave who was raped, needed medic afterwards.
15- All these ISIS wives that I met (my full report out tomorrow) want to go home. They say they regret joining ISIS. Can't tell if sincere.
16- To be honest with u, when I was interviewing ISIS wives I couldnt help but wonder how they would've treated me if I were caught by ISIS.
17- As u know, I work for Arabic @akhbar TV. When I read comments on my vids, I'm terrified by how many ppl wish I am taken slave by ISIS.
18- So I'm obsessed with the topic. I asked these ISIS wives, did u help any slave to escape ISIS? They said some wives did out of jealousy.
19- I was shocked when I heard this answer. Wives of ISIS fighters didn't help Yazidi slaves to escape bcz they were raped day & night.
20- Some ISIS wives allowed slaves to flee bcz they were jealous their husbands slept more with the slaves. Not bcz they wanted 2 help them.
21- This is me sitting with the wives & kids of ISIS fighters. I'll share more details with you tomorrow after my report is aired. @akhbar
22- That's it for now. Tomorrow more interesting stuff. Good night everyone.
