‘Death is close’ Widows of ISIS fighters face threat of Mosul revenge attacks

FAMILIES and widows of Islamic State fighters have been left to face the daily harassment and threats from Iraqis in Mosul.

Umm Leith, the widow of an ISIS fighter, has faced almost daily abuse from Iraqi security forces and neighbours, who freed Mosul from the jihadis last month.

Mrs Leith’s husband and three sons joined the evil jihadist group in 2015, but all of the fighters were killed in coalition air strikes in Mosul last year.

And now Mrs Leith claims she has been subjected to threats from locals in her home town of Hamam al-Alil, close to Mosul.

Hope it’s long and painful…
