It was only a few days ago — September 11th, ironically — when Western Journalism shared the story of two young Austrian girls–fresh-faced, impressionable teenagers — who reportedly ran off to join in jihad as ISIS war fighters. Now comes word that one of those girls has already been killed on a Middle East battlefield.
As London’s Daily Mail reports:
One of two Austrian teenage ‘postergirls’ who flew to Syria in April to join Islamic State ranks is believed to have been killed.
Samra Kesinovic, 16, and her friend Sabina Selimovic, 15, vanished from their Vienna homes earlier this year.
Soon afterwards they posted images of themselves branding Kalashnikov rifles, surrounded by armed men – photos which Austrian police feared were acting as militant recruitment posters for young girls.
As of this posting, it’s not known which of the two girls — both reportedly of Bosnian heritage — may have died.
Police now want to find out how they became radicalised, and whether anybody had helped them plan their trip to Syria which was apparently set to take place via Turkey….
It’s well known that ISIS recruiters and trainers welcome jihadists of all ages into their terror ranks. They even proudly post videos of youngsters firing weapons, as you can see by clicking on the video above.
