The Herald reports:
An Iraqi woman says she chops and cooks the heads of Islamic State fighters in retaliation for the deaths of her family.
Can’t imagine they taste very good.
Wahida Mohamed Al-Jumaily, 39, who describes herself as a “housewife” heads a group of 70 tribal militia in the recently liberated town of Shirqat, about 80km south of Mosul.
She claims to be one of the most feared by IS, having survived six assassination attempts, and has received death threats from the group’s top leaders.
“I fought them, I beheaded them, I cooked their heads, I burned their bodies,” she told CNN.
Al-Jumaily, better known as Um Hanadi, has every reason to seek out revenge.
IS killed her second husband earlier this year and has previously killed her father and three brothers.
She told Al Sabah that her son-in-law was also executed by IS – but not before his hands and feet were cut off – in 2014 when IS took control of Shirqat.
Al-Jumaily posts graphic photos of her work on Facebook. Among them, a picture of what appears to be her carrying a severed head; another showing two heads in a cooking pot; and another showing her standing over headless, burnt-out bodies.
Last week she led a group of 50 fighters into the Shirqat city centre and took control from IS, Iraqi media reports.
Shows she has got the balance right between her domestic duties (cooking) and her day job (killing). In fact managed to combine the two.
She told newspaper Al Sabah that she has killed 18 terrorists herself, and added: “We are fighting like a family”.
Al-Jumaily, who is also a grandmother, said she had received death threats from the IS leadership – “including from (Abu Bakr) al-Baghdadi himself”.
I vote al-Baghdadi is handed over to Ms Al-Jumaily if he is captured. Nothing would demoralise Islamic State fighters more than having their Supreme Leader cooked by a woman.
