Yazidi refugees urge Australia to help save their minority community

Yazidi refugees urge Australia to help save their minority community Refugees in Australia call for more action to save Yazidis in captivity or those living in camps after fleeing northern Iraq, after news of a massacre of 50 women. A mass grave containing the bodies of dozens of people thought to have been Yazidis enslaved by the Islamic State (IS) group was found in territory recently seized by the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces, with many of the victims women. Yazidi communities in Wagga Wagga, Coffs Harbour and Toowoomba have held rallies to highlight the plight of the minority religious group, thousands of whom were taken captive by IS militants in 2014.

Now, four years later, with her husband dead and the so-called Islamic caliphate in ruins, Zehra Duman, 24, is begging to come home, claiming her two children have the right to be treated like any other 'normal kids' in Australia.

'I only saw America killing': an IS widow's view of Syria's war

'I only saw America killing': an IS widow's view of Syria's war Emerging from Islamic State's last enclave in eastern Syria, a widow of one of the group's fighters made no effort to hide her enmity toward the United States as she handed herself over to U.S.-backed Syrian forces besieging the area. "This is not war. I did not see fighters, people taking up arms and waging jihad against America. No, I only saw America killing - a lot," French national Um Walaa's told Reuters TV after being evacuated from Baghouz near the Iraqi border. "...They used to say we (Islamic State) made the world scared, honestly I did not see this. I did not see that we terrorized the world.

But in 2015, ISIS fanatic Duman, then just 19 and married to a terrorist known as 'the Playboy jihadi', was so sure of the Islamic State's success she directly threatened Australia - and a Daily Mail Australia reporter's family.

Duman was a key ISIS recruiter on social media, posing with machine guns and on the bonnets of luxury cars stolen by the terrorists as she urged other Westerners to leave civilisation and join their murderous and twisted Islamic regime.

She was recently believed to be in a Syrian refugee camp, desperate to come home. Pictured: the woman thought to be Duman alongside aid workers

Duman told Daily Mail Australia at the time: 'All you have to know is that the next time I will ever step into Australia, is when we come and make it a part of the Islamic State bi'thnillah.

'Thank you and have a great day mate!'

Duman startled her own relatives when she fled Victoria to join the terrorist group, then known as ISIS, in 2014.

At the time, ISIS had launched a terrifying propaganda campaign largely focused on beheading Westerners.

But the situation in Syria has changed dramatically over the past five years with the so-called Islamic State a shadow of its former self.

Duman's husband and friends have been killed and she is thought to be trapped in a refugee camp in Syria.

Despite her threat, Australia has not become part of the Islamic State.

And Duman is believed to have told an American humanitarian worker she is desperate to come home.

'I want to go back to my country,' the woman, who was thought to be Duman but refused to confirm her identity.

'I think everybody's asking for that because I'm an Australian citizen.'

The mother-of-two young children said she understood Australians would be angry with her.

'I want to come back to my country': Australian jihadi bride in Syrian refugee camp speaks out

'I want to come back to my country': Australian jihadi bride in Syrian refugee camp speaks out An Australian woman trapped with her two young children in a refugee camp for Islamic State group families says her daughter needs urgent medical care and she wants to come home. The woman refused to confirm her identity, but it's believed she is 24-year-old Zehra Duman from Melbourne. She is being held at Al Hawl refugee camp in north-east Syria.

"Both of my kids are sick.

But, in the video obtained by the ABC, she insisted: 'My kids have a right to be treated like normal kids.

'I understand the anger that they have towards a lot of us here, but the kids don't need to suffer.'

The defeat of ISIS last year has displaced thousands of jihadi brides, many of whom are now in refugee camps in Syria.

Hundreds of babies have died and the woman said her two-year-old son and six-month-old daughter are sick and malnourished.

Duman said: 'I have no money, I'm not allowed to have money, they don't give us food here and they don't let us contact our families.'

The woman, 24, claimed she has been trying to leave ISIS for two years but could not because she had no money and would get killed if she were caught.

Zehra's Islamic State propaganda

Upon arriving in Syria, Duman, a former student at Isik College Keysborough, began to spruik vile Islamic State propaganda on social media.

Her relatives watched on, with her father, Davut Duman, despairing that his daughter had been 'brainwashed'.

In 2015, a Twitter account believed to be run by Duman posted pictures of ISIS women carrying assault rifles and standing next to luxury cars, head to toe in Islamic dress.

In one tweet, Duman said: 'US + Australia, how does it feel that all 5 of us were born n raised in your lands, & now here thirsty for ur blood?'

We need a war crimes tribunal into the atrocities of Islamic State

We need a war crimes tribunal into the atrocities of Islamic State Islamic State fighters are fleeing their collapsed caliphate and must be held accountable for their crimes. A special UN tribunal may offer the best way forward, writes Louise Chappell.

In other tweets, Duman called for violence against 'kuffars' or non-Muslims.

'Stab them and poison them. Poison your teachers, go to haram restaurants and poison the food in large quantities,' she wrote.

Shortly after arriving in the Middle East, she married fellow Melbourne extremist Mahmoud Abdullatif, known as the 'playboy jihadi'

When Abullatif died in battle five weeks after their wedding, Duman celebrated his death.

'You won the race!' she tweeted, describing him as a 'green bird' - the term used to describe a so-called martyr.

US-backed forces bombard last IS group bastion in Syria

US-backed forces bombard last IS group bastion in Syria A shroud of black smoke covered the Islamic State group's last Syria redoubt on Monday as US-backed forces battled holdout jihadists after a night of shelling and heavy air strikes. The Kurdish-led Syrian Democratic forces have been closing in on IS fighters holed up in a small sliver of territory in the village of Baghouz in eastern Syria since January. A cluster of rudimentary tents and vehicles is all that remains of the once-sprawling "caliphate" declared across large swaths of Syria and neighbouring Iraq in 2014.

It was not long before Duman permanently disappeared from social media.

She has not been heard from in the press until the aid workers discovered her at the refugee camp recently.

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has pushed back against the Australian ISIS bride's pleas for help.

Mr Morrison declared he would not put any Australians at risk by helping home-grown extremists wanting to come home from the Middle East.

Mr Morrison said it was a 'great tragedy' Islamic State sympathisers had dragged their children into war zones.

'They have placed their children in this horrendous position,' he told reporters in Melbourne on Thursday.

'They have to take responsibility for those decisions to join up with terrorists who are fighting Australia.

'I think the children are innocent victims in the terrorist acts of their parents,' Mr Morrison said.

'If you're coming home, you're coming home to face the full force of the law. The great tragedy is how children get caught up in the crimes against Australia of their parents.'

The defeat displaced thousands of jihadi brides who had fled their home countries to join the fight and marry ISIS soldiers.

Last month former London schoolgirl turned ISIS bride Shamima Begum was tracked down to a the Al-Hawl refugee camp in north-eastern Syria.

In an interview with The Times, the 19-year-old demanded to be allowed home to Britain for the sake of her unborn baby son, Jerah.

Meet the Indonesian girl who convinced her entire family to move to Syria to join Islamic State At just 15 years old, Nur Dhania told her family she was going to Syria to live in the caliphate. 

Ms Begum, from Bethnal Green in east London, was 15 when she and two other schoolgirls went to join the terror group in February 2015.

Her family announced the boy's birth on February 17 and said they believed he was 'in good health'.

But Jerah died aged 18 days old last week after suffering pneumonia.

Ms Begum said two of her other children had also died in Syria.

She was moved to another camp after she was threatened by other IS wives for revealing her face during Press interviews.

The British government stripped Miss Begum of her British citizenship. It said it was able to do so because she also held a Bangladeshi passport.
