September 4, 2020 Extremists

Place of Birth: East London, United Kingdom;

Gender: Female;

Nationality: British;

General Info:
Amira Abase is a British schoolgirl who travelled to Syria to join Islamic State with two teenage friends is feared to have been killed in an air strike.

She flew via Turkish Airlines from Gatwick Airport in West Sussex, England, to Istanbul, Turkey before crossing the border into Syria.

The mother of Amira Abase, who was just 15 when she fled her London home to join the Islamic State in 2015, has told friends that she understands her daughter died almost a year ago.

As well as being told by informed sources that her daughter is believed to have been killed, Fetia Hussen lost the mobile phone app communication she had with Amira last summer.

Friends of Fetia Hussen say she believes her daughter has died, but clings to the faint hope that she is wrong. Both Fetia Hussen and Amira’s father, Abase Hussen, declined to comment.

Four months after Amira fled to Syria, The Mail revealed how she had tried to groom an undercover reporter posing as a teenage girl.

When the reporter told her about the terror attack at a tourist resort near the Tunisian city of Sousse a few days earlier, she replied: ‘LOL (laugh out loud).’ Informed of the death toll of 38, including 30 Britons, Amira wrote: ‘Wow, damned that’s a lot.’

Three months after Amira travelled to Syria, it emerged that her father had been to a rally held by the extremist group Al-Muhajiroun.

It was also attended by hate preacher Anjem Choudary and Michael Adebowale, now serving life for the murder of Lee Rigby in South-East London in 2013. Hussen took Amira to two other Islamist rallies before she left for Syria.

He also blamed the Islamic State’s social media propaganda for “tricking” the girls to go to Syria.
