A mother, with an AK-47 slung over her shoulder, walks her child to a playground. A man driving a car orders a woman to cover her face: “God loves women who are covered.” A woman in an Internet cafe, in flawless French, tells her mother that she won’t be coming home: “I did not take the risk by coming here to go back to France.”
The world got a rare glimpse at life inside the ISIS-controlled city of Raqqa thanks to an intrepid, unnamed Syrian woman who wore a hidden camera under her niqab as she walked around the northern Syrian city, which fell to ISIS militants 18 months ago.
The video report was commissioned by France 2 and posted to YouTube.
According to the report, some 150 French women are now living alongside the ISIS militants in northern Syria, having traveled there as jihadi brides to the extremists.
This week, U.S. and its Arab allies hit Raqqa with airstrikes, seeking to destroy militant positions in what has become the de facto capital of ISIS.
