Laura H., the 20-year-old mother arrested on Schiphol on Monday after claiming to escape from ISIS with her two kids, will remain in custody for another two weeks, the court in Rotterdam decided on Thursday.
The Dutch consulate in the Iraqi city of Erbil had personal contact with Laura H. - a Dutch woman who escaped from the ISIS caliphate with her two kids two weeks ago, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced.
Dutch woman Laura H. instructed Kurdish Peshmerga fighters to leave her injured husband behind when they helped her and her two children flee from terrorist organization ISIS last week, Kurdish general Bahram Arif Yassin told newspaper Trouw.
A Dutch woman lived in areas controlled by terrorist group Islamic State for almost a year before managing to escape on Tuesday and get help from Kurdish fighters in Mosul, Iraq, reports Kurdish television station Kurdistan24.
The Dutch F-16 fighter jets have dropped their 500th bomb on an ISIS target since the Netherlands joined the mission against the terrorist organization last year.
The ISIS jihadist Khalid K. from Almere was killed in fighting in North-Iraq. Various Kurdish fighters from the Peshmerga army confirm the death of the feared jihad fighter, De Telegraaf reports.
Kurdish organizations fear a rise in the number of Dutch Kurds traveling to Iraq to fight against jihadist insurgents there. This makes the number of Dutch nationals fighting against each other for different allegiances greater, the Algemeen Dagblad reports.
