Australian Woman Makes Fatal Decision to Become an ISIS Bride

When Tara Nettleton was 16, she married Khaled Sharrouf and quickly converted to Islam, while having several children. After he left for Syria, to fight for ISIS, now 31, Nettleton packed up her five children to join him in 2014.

Sharrouf died in battle, but they married their 13-year-old daughter to his best friend, another ISIS beheader, Mohamed Elomar. The little girl then became pregnant, and Nettleton was excited about becoming a grandmother. Just eight weeks after her grandchild was born, Nettleton suffered a painful death from appendicitis.

She could not get the necessary treatment because of the Islamic State's medieval beliefs and lack of appropriate healthcare. This was something that could have been easily taken care of in Australia.

Nettleton and her husband made headlines when they praised their 10-year-old son, Abdullah, for posing with the severed head of a Syrian soldier. Nettleton also posed along with other ISIS wives. In addition, Sharrouf posed with heads he severed, and was primarily featured in a disgusting ISIS propaganda video.

Their daughter, Zaynab, texted her Australian grandmother of her adult husband's death by writing, “Hello Nana, how are you? My husband got hit by a drone yesterday and got killed. When I found out I was happy for him to get what he wanted and go to paradise but at the same time I was devastated because I loved him so much and I knew I was never gonna see him again in this life.”

Nettleton's mother, Karen, has fought to get her daughter and grandchildren back. In a statement last year, she said “[They] more than ever need the love and care of their family to help them recover from the trauma, abuse and terrors of war they have experienced. Unlike millions of displaced people in Iraq and Syria, they have a place to come home to.”

One of Nettleton's neighbors said, “We get on well until one day I saw her watering the garden, I said, ‘You’re too pretty to wear those things.’ She never spoke to me again after then. Tara used to go out the back and sit on the step with her mum Karen in shorts but when the men came home she would cover up."
