The children of Australia's most notorious terrorist's who are believed to be trapped behind enemy lines are not responsible for their parent's crimes, but there is little Australia can do to offer them safe passage, the Prime Minister says.

A woman believed to be Australian jihadi bride Zehra Duman revealed the surviving children of IS fighter Khaled Sharrouf are in the town of Baghouz, which is surrounded by Kurdish-led forces.

"They're fine and they're alive," the woman said in a short interview recorded by an aid worker late last week and obtained by the ABC, as she fled the area along with other women and children who were holed up in the town.

"I don't know if they're going to leave or not. I haven't kept in contact with them."

When asked whether Australia would pursue prosecution of Ms Duman, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said it was a complex case, and Australia would make decisions consistent with national security interests.

"Obviously the issue of the children involved is also a very sensitive one," Mr Morrison said.

"The children can't be held responsible for the crimes of their parents."

Melbourne man Khaled Sharrouf left Australia in late 2013 to fight in Syria for Islamic State.

He was later joined by his wife Tara Nettleton and their five children.

Ms Nettleton died of health complications in 2015 and Sharrouf and two of his sons, Abdullah and Zarqawi, died in an air strike in 2017.

The couple's three remaining children — Zaynab, 17; Hoda, 16; and Hamze, 9 — were left stranded in Syria and there has been ongoing speculation about their location.

Zehra Duman left Australia in 2014.

During the interview obtained by the ABC, the woman — wearing the conservative Islamic niqab which concealed her features except for her eyes — said she was Ms Nettleton's best friend.

Ms Duman is believed to have lived with the Sharrouf family in Raqqa in 2015.

In January 2015, Zehra shared a photo to her twitter account of Tara's eldest son, Abdullah Sharrouf with the caption: "Meet Abu Musab. Abu Abdullatifs (sic) lil best mate, may he grow to be like him & receive a beautiful death just like him"

Children only hold Australian citizenship

Sharrouf attracted international condemnation when pictures of one of his sons holding up the severed head of a Syrian soldier was shared widely on social media.

Parents should be responsible for all financial restitution required when their kid commits a crime unless their kid pays for it themselves. Parents should bear some responsibility for the kind of person they unleash into the world. A lot of crimes would be diminished if the child's home life were

Most states will hold parents liable for their kids in civil court and criminalize the act of "contributing to the delinquency of a minor," with which parents can "It's often just a way for politicians to look hard on juvenile delinquency," she says . O'Mara doesn't think so. Nor do the victims of crimes like bullying.

The former Melbournian was the first dual-national to be stripped of his citizenship under the Federal Government's anti-terror laws.

Mr Morrison said the remaining children were in a very dangerous part of the world.

"Australia is not in a position to offer any safe passage to people who are in that part of the world," he siad.

"And that is very concerning for the fact that there are children involved in this, and their parents, Khaled Sharrouf in particular, who committed despicable crimes have placed their children in harm's way.

"We will deal with that issue sensitively, but we must remember that both parents, including Khaled Sharrouf's wife, committed crimes, being where they were, doing what they were doing."

The revelation about the location of his remaining children will likely be a headache for Canberra, given they were taken by their parents to the warzone and likely coerced into involvement with Islamic State.

They are Australian citizens and if they manage to escape Baghuz their Australian grandmother, Karen Nettleton, will expect the Australian Government to help them return home, as other Western nations have done with other families who have left IS.

Sharrouf children alive, Australian jihadi bride says as she flees Islamic State stronghold

Sharrouf children alive, Australian jihadi bride says as she flees Islamic State stronghold Australia's first so-called jihadi brides is believed to have emerged from Islamic State's last stronghold, saying the children of Australia's most notorious terrorist are alive but stranded in IS territory. Australia's first so-called jihadi brides is believed to have emerged from Islamic State's last stronghold, and says the children of Australia's most notorious terrorist are alive The ABC has obtained exclusive footage showing a woman believed to be Zehra Duman with other women and children fleeing Baghuz — the last sliver of land still controlled by Islamic State.

Although parents are responsible for raising and teaching their children what is right or wrong, parents should not be held responsible for the crimes of juvenile crime arrests. Most states and or cities have a law that holds parents responsible for their children’s crimes . The problem with that is

Holding parents legally responsible for their children's behavior, however, is probably But parents should not be held liable for behavior that occurs outside of their sight, without their knowledge or In either event, a parent would not be guilty of the crime of their child unless they intended the crime .

Grandmother's hope for children's return

Sharrouf's three Australian children remain trapped in an area about two kilometres wide, where Islamic State forces are slowly being ground down under a barrage of ground assaults, artillery strikes and air strikes by the US-backed Kurdish group the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF).

The SDF are poised for a final push to take Baghuz.

Over the last week as many as 20,000 civilians fled the town and were taken to refugee camps in Syria and Iraq. They're now living in refugee camps in northern Syria.

Ms Nettleton is said to be "ecstatic" they are alive but blamed Ms Duman for leaving them behind when she fled.

Her lawyer Robert Van Aalst said Mrs Nettleton believed Ms Duman should have done more to help evacuate the girls. Zaynab, 17, has two children of her own.

"The question Karen asks herself is 'why in hell's name didn't she make sure that Zaynab and Hoda, and their brother and her two great grandchildren weren't taken out at the same time?" Mr Van Aalst said.

"It looks to Karen literally as if Zehra's looked after herself and just left the children to their fate, whatever that might be.

"So she's pretty angry."

He said Mrs Nettleton believed Ms Duman had enough influence over the girls to convince them to get out.

Mr Van Aalst said he also believes Ms Duman could have helped the children leave the last Islamic State stronghold.

The Kurdish-led force battling IS says the battle to capture Baghouz could begin at any time.

"I wished I was religious so I could pray for their safety, but I'm not," Mr Van Aalst said.

"I'm the ultimate optimist and so is Karen.

"I hope that they get out alive and then we can start to do something about getting them back home."

"People should realise that these are children. They had no choice in the decision. They were brought to Turkey and Syria, and they been held as far as I'm concerned held captive all that time, which is now nearing five years.

"I just hope there'll be some compassion somewhere to help save these poor children.

"We've already lost two of them," he said in reference to Abdullah and Zarqawi Sharrouf.
