Four women, four children: the federal government takes back German IS members in a secret operation

Four wives, four children
Bund brings back German IS members in secret action

For the sixth time, the federal government is flying German IS members from Kurdish prison camps back to Germany. According to media reports, there are four women and four children from Lower Saxony, Thuringia, North Rhine-Westphalia and Hesse.

In a secret operation, the federal government has a group of German supporters of the terrorist militia Islamic State (IS) and their children flown out of Syria. As the “Spiegel” reports, the four women and four children have been in Kurdish prison camps for years.

According to the report, referring to security circles, they were transferred to Germany with a US Air Force transport aircraft via an air base in Kuwait. The machine is expected in Frankfurt am Main in the evening hours. The Attorney General and other public prosecutor’s offices are investigating the women, among other things, on suspicion of membership in a terrorist organization. Those who fled originally come from Lower Saxony, Thuringia, Hesse and North Rhine-Westphalia.

According to “Spiegel”, Marcia M. is among the IS supporters. The 33-year-old and her husband Oğuz G. are therefore connected to a suspected IS terrorist plan. Its department for “external operations” is said to have tried to smuggle commandos to Germany in 2016. According to the investigators, Marcia M.’s job was to match up Islamists in Germany with possible assassins: they were supposed to marry the IS fighters as a camouflage. However, the alleged plans failed.

Around 40 IS supporters left in northern Syria

A 20-year-old man from Hamburg is also on board the plane. He was kidnapped by his mother when he was a teenager. In his case, the federal government is deviating for the first time from the previous line of only bringing women and children back to Germany. The Attorney General is also conducting terror proceedings against him.

The air transport is the sixth return campaign so far, it is said. On the first flight in the summer of 2019, only orphans and sick children of IS supporters were brought to Germany from a camp in northern Syria. Several flights with women and children followed later. According to the report, there are still 40 German IS supporters in detention camps or prisons in northern Syria. More than two thirds of them are men.
