A Canadian ISIS bride is desperate to come home and is begging not to be “judged too harshly.”

The woman — who goes by the name Kimberley — told ITV News she was in the dark about “all the politics” when she travelled to Syria on what she calls a “humanitarian” mission.

“I knew that they were fighting but I didn’t know all the politics,” she told ITV. “I came as a humanitarian, I came wanting to help, to offer the skills that I had to help mainly women and children here.”

But what she discovered was a hellish war zone constantly under siege.


Kimberley says she travelled to the caliphate for “humanitarian” reasons.

“It’s constant bombings, it’s constant people fleeing, it’s pulling bodies from houses, it’s pulling children from houses as they collapse,” Kimberley told ITV.

“I would say that for the women that are still there and for the children, that if you want to leave, come, you’ll be OK.

“And I would say for the families back home, don’t judge too harsh.”

Now, like others who followed the path to the caliphate, Kimberley just wants to return to Canada.

It wasn’t clear what part of the country she is from and she did not reveal her last name.

Her sister told ITV News that Kimberley had “not acted rationally.”

Kimberley may have escaped in the nick of time as allied forces are expected to begin their final push this week to wipe ISIS off the map. Just 600 jihadis reportedly remain.

Meanwhile, according to a United Nations report, ISIS fanatics have a $300-million war chest earmarked for funding attacks in the west.

Much of the cash has been smuggled to foreign countries while some of the reserves remain in their last Syrian stronghold.

“(The militants are taking) a strategic view to funding larger-scale attacks once the opportunity arises again,” the report says.

It adds that the jihadis and their dependents will remain a deadly threat even after ISIS is defeated in conventional military operations.

Worldwide, the report suggests ISIS may have up to 18,000 members.

“Foreign terrorist fighters leaving the conflict zone, or prior returnees becoming active again on release from prison or for other reasons, will increase the threat,” the report said.

It adds: “The handling of dependents is particularly challenging. Radicalized women and traumatized minors may also pose a serious threat.”
