ICC Note – As the Islamic State (ISIS) recruiting numbers continue to swell, it appears they’re also pulling from sub-Saharan Africa with even women who seek to join their ranks. Sudan reports for the third time that a number of its citizens have left the country headed for Iraq and Syria through Turkey to fight with the extremist Muslim terror group. What’s most surprising is that this number from Sudan reportedly includes the daughter of the ministry of foreign affairs and that several recruits from Sudan have been women. ISIS maintains a horrific record of treatment towards women including theologically justified rape and rampant participation in the sex trade.

9/1/15 Khartoum, Sudan (AllAfrica) – For the third time this year, a group of Sudanese students have left the country to join the Islamic State (IS) in Iraq and Syria. The four women students left Sudan via Khartoum National Airport, El Sudani newspaper reported on Sunday. Further details were unknown so far.

Relatives of two of the students, who are twins, told the newspaper that they flew on Saturday night with Qatar Airways; flights to Istanbul are heavily checked after the majority of the first two groups of Islamist students opted for Turkish Airlines.

One of them was studying Laboratory Science at the National College in Khartoum. Her sister is a graduate of the Faculty of Medicine at the private University of Medical Sciences and Technolgy, the university where most of the former IS adherents studied.

After the family discovered that the twins and their passports had disappeared, their father went to the airport, where he was shown a security video of his daughters’ departure.
